    FILE - This Monday, Aug. 1, 2011 picture shows the U.S. Capitol just after the House voted to pass debt legislation on Capitol Hill in Washington. Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's says it has downgraded the United States' credit rating for the first time in the history of the ratings. The credit rating agency says that it is cutting the country's top AAA rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said late Friday, Aug. 5, 2011 that it is making the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress on Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country's debt situation.

    In this July 22, 2011, photo, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, left, and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, walk through the Capitol rotunda after meeting with Senators on the Senate floor, on Capitol Hill, in Washington. When President Barack Obama complains about House Republicans unwilling to compromise on a deficit reduction package, he's talking about Jordan, a former wrestling champion from Ohio who is becoming a driving force in the debt debate on Capitol Hill. Jordan?s district is right next to Speaker John Boehner?s in the western part of state, but ideologically, he is miles apart from the Republican leader. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)
