House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the decision by Standard & Poor’s to put a “negative” outlook on the U.S. AAA credit rating is a “wakeup call” and shows the need for “serious reforms” to ensure the nation’s fiscal health.

The negative outlook issued by S&P “makes clear that the debt-limit increase proposed by the Obama administration must be accompanied by meaningful fiscal reforms that immediately reduce federal spending and stop our nation from digging itself further into debt,” the Virginia Republican said in a statement.
