    Reid Taps Murray, Baucus, Kerry for Deficit Panel : Roll Call News

    hmmm......Interesting, to say the least, choices


    Also from the article:
    Wonder if Ryan will get a nod.....





    Any suggestions or some people you hope you DON'T want to see picked?



    Also, I heard someone say that this "3rd Congress" is unconstitutional.
    Anyone want to broach that subject and explain?

    How about "Supreme Council of Nicea" with Emperor Obama presiding?

    Goof!

    I meant names of members of the Esteemed Committee of Hierarchy Ego (ECHO for short)


    Wonder if McCain's gonna try to inject himself into it?
    He must think he's got the skills....remember when he took time off of his campaign to "help" with that ever-so-important TARP bullshit?! :doubt:

    After seeing the first three choices, we can see the democrats are putting up party conies vs actual skills.

    Right?
    As much as I dislike Kerry, his forte is Foreign Affairs. How does that qualify for debt-reduction and budget control?

    Spending bills are supposed to originate in the House not the "Supreme Council". With only 13 members deciding legislation, now ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIVES are left out of the process! If the remaining reps and senators don't pass what the Supreme Council passes, the Supreme Council will do what they want.

    The whole thing is Unconstitutional and whoever participates in it should be arrested and tried for treason.

    They ran the blue dogs out. So how would any of them qualify?

    "Super Congress?" Aint nothing "Super" about this. Just heard they're down to possibly cutting $1.2 Trillion over ten years. $1.2 Trillion? That's just laughable for sure. By then our Debt will be up around $24 Trillion. $1.2 Trillion doesn't even add up to a drop in a bucket. Things are going to get much much worse in this Country. A very bleak future for sure.

    Reid picked three who have virtually no chance of compromising on a plan. The Republicans doubled down by choosing six with even less chance of finding compromise on a plan. I'm sure Pelosi will now do the exact same thing.

    S&P downgrades us due in large part to political brinksmanship and an inability to reach compromise on cuts and revenues. How does the legislature respond? By appointing 9 (soon to be 12) people who are very, very unlikely to arrive at a compromise.

    Welcome to the Single-A rated debt club! Pathetic.

    It's astounding that they couldn't agree to put a few gang of six members on it.
