  • I think thsi Super Committee crap is just that. Another shell game concocted to keep kickng the can of responsibility down the old beltway.

    Let me hit the high spots of this shell game:
    1. Committees are also allowed to submit recommendations to the Super Committee by October 14, 2011.
    2. Committee vote on recommendations due Nov. 23, 2011.
    3. Committee report due by December 2nd.
    4. Committees of jurisdiction must report by December 9th.
    5. Floor vote on final passage due December 23rd.
    6. Committee vote on recommendations due Nov. 23, 2011. Committee report due by December 2nd.
    7. Floor vote on final passage due December 23rd.
    8. The bill sets a goal of $1.8 trillion in deficit reduction from 2012 to 2021.
    Conclusion: So what! Only a “goal ” averaging $180 billion per year is set. Not even enough to pay the iannual interest on the debt. Show me where it says anything HAS TO BE DONE, such as a “mandated minimal savings”. Our politicians are playing with themselves in public again. Pure bullsh*t. Business as usual.
