    I guess I'll just keep saying the same thing over and over again.

    NOW is NOT the time to reduce spending to get the national debt under control.

    The FED Government's national debt problem was not the primary cause of the economic meltdown.

    Reducing government spending now is going to exascerbate the recession.

    What little progress we have made to get the economy back on track is going to be lost when the government cuts back on spending and as more and more people are let go to reduce spending.

    I cannot BELIEVE they are doing this.

    Certainly you have been watching Europe. Do we have to be another Greece before we learn anything?

    The Unconstitutional Super Committee is already doing us a service by limiting the corruption in D.C. to only 13 Members!

    It should be renamed the 'Stupor Committee.' Yea like $1.2 Trillion in cuts over ten years is really gonna matter. In ten years our Debt will be well over $20 Trillion. It's just so amzing how our Politicians and MSM have been able to dumb-down so many Americans. Many Americans actually believe this committee is going to fix things. Crazy stuff for sure.

    If there is a way they will find it to pass the buck again. A two step process. They do the popular part and do not follow through the unpopular part. What they need to do is just man up and do their job, all of them!

    I don't doubt they'll come up with some sorry deal just to get it out of the way before Election time. Lots of dishonest sellouts in both parties. But make no mistake about it,their deal will not solve any problems.

    This should be a sequestered committee but that's just not possible seeing how freakin' long this is taking.
