Deficit 'Super Committee' Schedules First Meeting

And the plotting begins.

The bipartisan congressional committee charged with finding ways to cut the U.S. budget deficit set its first meeting for Thursday morning, co-chairs Sen. Patty Murray, a Washington Democrat, and Rep. Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican, said Friday, according to MarketWatch. The so-called "super committee" will go over rules for its work and take opening statements from its 12 members. The panel's task is to identify $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction from entitlements, tax reform and other areas of the budget.


  1. What a racket.

    All one has to do is read the EPJ, LRC, the Mises Institute or a few other select sites to know how to save money and create real wealth.

    But, that's not what the "super committee" is really for now is it?

  2. 1 day late and 1 bankruptcy short. These effing clowns are talking budget cuts when they should be talking BK.

    Effing inept morons. Funny, I don't see a super Congress in our Constitution either.

  3. Larry & Davos are spot on.

    Did you see the post on Zero Hedge that the US has already, less than a month after passage, hit the new debt ceiling?

    Like thugs that just stole a black Amex.
