April 18 (Bloomberg) -- Standard & Poor's put a "negative" outlook on the U.S. AAA credit rating, citing rising budget deficits and debt. The ratings firm said there is "a material risk that U.S. policy makers might not reach an agreement on how to address medium-and long-term budgetary challenges by 2013."
