Microsoft Has a Higher Credit Rating than the US Government

This is getting ridiculous to the extreme. First it was Apple has more money in cash reserves than the U.S. and now Microsoft has a better credit rating. Things are going to hell in a hand basket when the entire US government is being upstaged by the tech world. Microsoft is the only tech company in the U.S. with a AAA rating along with only three other non-tech companies achieving that distinction.

The US used to have a whopping 60 companies that had a AAA rating. In 1995 that number went down to about 30 or so. Today, just four US corporation have a AAA credit rating and one of them happens to be Microsoft.
