内容提要:白宫呼吁美国两党政治家团结起来解决国家财政和经济问题。此前一天,标准普尔降低了美国债务的信誉等级。

 

The White House has called on US politicians from both parties to work together to tackle the country's fiscaland economic problems. The appeal comes a day after the American credit rating was downgraded by the Standard & Poor's agency. The agency said the last-minute standoff between the parties over the raising of the US debt ceiling made it less likely that the growing political divides could be bridged in future. John Chambers is the chairman of Standard & Poor['s].

"We took a dimmer view of the political settings in the United States - the governability. The fact that you had a debt ceiling agreement that resulted in the government not reaching an agreement until 10 hours before they had a cash management programme, I mean, this is not how most highly-rated governments run themselves."

The BBC Washington correspondent says the White House has implicitly blamed the Republicans for the downgrade as they blocked President Obama's efforts to cut the US deficit.
