Super Committee Fails to Reach Deficit Agreement

Posted on November 22, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

The bipartisan congressional committee tasked with finding at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction announced on Monday it cannot reach agreement by the Wednesday deadline. The declaration came in a written statement from the 12-member of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction.

The committee, in the end, could not resolve that Republicans would not go as far as Democrats wanted on allowing more revenue raisers, and Democrats did not want to move on entitlement reforms. Intense messaging by both political parties on which was more to blame is surely to spill out for days, if not months.

I had no expectations from the outset that they would reach agreement. The Republican’s pledge to Grover Norquist(?) and defeating Obama is more important to them than the economy and job creation in this country.
