Jim Rogers Doesn't See How the United States Can Ever Pay Off Its Debts

From CNBC, Sunday night:
The U.S. doesn't deserve an AA-plus credit rating, much less triple-A, commodity bull and noted investor Jim Rogers told CNBC on Monday.

Rogers said the country was unlikely to be able to pay off its debt and Standard and Poor's rating cut had come too late and should have happened long ago.

"It seems to me it's physically, humanly impossible for the U.S. to ever pay off its debt," Rogers said. "They can roll it over and continue to play the charade, but the U.S. is bankrupt."

Rogers’ comments came during a CNBC interview with the head of sovereign ratings at Standard and Poor's, David Beers.
