Looks to me like Moody's is trying to set US Budget policy.
"If Congress and the White House don't reach a budget deal, about $1.2 trillion in spending cuts and tax increases will automatically kick in starting Jan. 2, a scenario that's been dubbed the "fiscal cliff," because it is likely to send the economy back into recession and drive up unemployment.
WE are taxed enough, time to cut the fat and waste!
