Dick Durbin: The fundamentals of our economy are strong or something

“I still think the fundamentals of the U.S. economy are sound,” Durbin told FOX Chicago News. “I don’t care what S&P says.”

In a press release yesterday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee condemned Lugar as “out of touch” for telling a local TV station: “The American economy is still strong, that we’re making progress although it’s very slow in terms of job creation, and that we still have a dollar that is the world currency and we are still selling bonds to everybody all over the world despite the S&P downgrade.”
