    Its about funding the public sector.  Putting people to work.  Taking care of our infrastructure and our social compact without the deficit harpies swarming over everything.  The credit rating is a side effect of having a tax structure with sufficient revenue such that we can have the government that people expect.  Without huge deficits.  In essence, the Clinton era tax rates.  We know from experience that those rates will generate enough revenue yet will not inhibit economic growth.
