Aug 8 (Reuters) - PARIS Aug 8 (Reuters) - France's credit rating is AAA and the outlook on the rating is "stable", a representative of ratings agency Standard & Poor's for France said in an interview published on Monday.

"France is rated AAA with a stable outlook. So there is no reason to be concerned about its solvency," S&P's Carol Sirou was quoted as having said in the interview published in French daily newspaper Liberation. (Reporting by Brian Love; Editing by Kim Coghill)

They are forcing deep cuts to hurt the economy in time of recession. Republicans can’t beat the president at the pools without destroying him. Their scheme backfired so they give blame to the tea party. It will take us years to recover our losses. If republicans deliberately force triggers our credit will go down further along with the markets. The republican congress has declared war on the president. Republican governors are doing all they can to cripple the economy and stifle job growth. We could be headed into the “greatest” depression. They are gambling with the countries economic future just to win an election. There will be other elections for them. But no turning back for us.
