Failure to raise US debt limit worse than gov't shutdown-Moody's
NEW YORK, Sept 24
NEW YORK, Sept 24 (Reuters) - A failure to raise the U.S. borrowing limit would be more damaging to financial markets than a government shutdown, Moody's Investors Service said on Tuesday.
Moody's expects that the United States will avoid a shutdown and increase the debt limit, the rating agency said in a report.
But failure to lift the cap on what the government can borrow could "theoretically affect all categories of government spending, including debt service."
