"Super Committee" choice completed.........
Thu, 08-11-2011 - 2:10pm

I wish them well.


The 12 members of the Debt "Super Committee" are now official, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named her three appointees Thursday. She chose Reps. James Clyburn of South Carolina, Xavier Becerra of California, and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland.

As reported here yesterday, the other nine members have already been chosen.

Here's the full panel lineup:

  • Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) - co-chair
  • Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI)
  • Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI)
  • Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) - co-chair
  • Sen. Max Baucus (D-MN)
  • Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)
  • Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
  • Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA)
  • Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH)
  • Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC)
  • Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA)
  • Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD)

The special congressional committee has until Thanksgiving to come up with a plan to shave

I agree with Gingrich on this committee.

Huh. Between the posting name and the Gingrich endorsement, there's not much chance of pragmatism.
