- Question:-How will the Congressional Super Committee keep busy for days, weeks or months?
Since $1.5 trillion in government spending cuts can easily be found within 15 minutes or less, what will the Super Committee do to justify their work effort to the public? That is other than the California Democrat who is conducting a Wall Street fund raising campaign; his people are already busy with that.
Answer:-That so-called "super committee" is nothing but a "super" JOKE!!!...just more of the same old Washington BULLSIHT!!!
- Question:-Can Third Parties and Independents file a Lawsuit to question Constitutionality of a Two Party Super Committee?
Is a Committee that can only include Democrats and Republicans Unconstitutional? Doesn't this Super Committee further shackle us to the Two Party dominance over our Legislature? What do you think?
Answer:-I would argue that we really only have two slightly different flavors of one party. The Democrats and Republicans have more in common than they have differences. They aren't going to allow anyone with real ideological differences to come to the party and upset their mutually beneficial relationship.
- Question:-Should we throw out all members of the super committee?
First off, the whole notion of a "Super Committee" is unconstitutional
Congress, specifically the House or Representatives initiates all legislation regarding spending money
The Democrats totally duped Beohner yet again with this plan. They had no intention of cutting spending, and they knew it. They just protected the president from having to deal with this, until after the election
Democrats have been nothing but an obstacle to resolving our debt problems, and we will undoubtedly be downgraded again, thanks to them
I would be will to take a hit on the Republican side, to get ride of John Kerry
Yes, it has been a debt problem for a long time. Obama and the Democrats have just accelerated the problem; blame whoever you like. But it's plain for all to see, who refuses to make cuts. Democrats! There is your blame
Yes, we "DO" have the power to "Vote" these guys out of office; organize campaigns against them, etc.
- Question:-If 7 out of 12 Members of the Congressional Super Committee vote for certain cuts, are Seniors Screwed?
Once something "passes" through the 12 member Congressional Super-committee, does that mean it will go into law or are there checks and balances before this happens? In other words, if 6 Republicans want drastic cuts and one Democrat caves (to preserve "unity"), will those cuts likely be drastic to Medicare, Medicaid and other programs?
Will Seniors know who voted for the cuts so that they can decide who to vote for (and not vote for) in the future?
- Question:-If this super committee cant agree,will SS be cut or what does it mean?
If this super committee doesnt reach a deal,then cuts are coming across the board.I currently receive SS Disabilty and so do my minor children.Im a single father of 2 girls.
Will our benefits be cut or do they mean cuts like in cost of living cuts?What does it mean actually.Its a shame that so many other departments are going to be cut also.
- Question:-What's next for the so called "Super Committee"?
Looks like they're in the same position as Congress was 3 months ago. Congress then conveniently punted their responsibilities to the "Super Committee."
Who does the "Super Committee" now toss the hot potato to?
- Question:-Will the super committee reach any deals on cuts?
Or will they fail as 0bama hopes in order to gut the military? While using the failure of the committee against the republicans. Just more ways for him to destroy America!
Answer:-The Super-duper Committee is a FARCE
its a JOKE, firs of all its UNCONSTITUTIONAL
and also its staffed by professional politicians ...
- Question:-do we need to appoint a super "super committee" to make sure the super committee works?
I mean , does anybody think that this committee can make cuts? Real cuts to social programs?
Answer:-So here we have 535 Congress people voted by the people yet they are going to choose a few to decide where cuts should be made. I am sure this super committee will not be able to work together. Look at the screwed deal we got out of the debt crisis. Obama got his money and we got a super committee. YEA......
I suppose we need someone to watch the cat so it doesn't eat the bird.
- Question:-Is appointing John Kerry to the super-committee a good way to create bipartisan co-operation?
even after Kerry blamed the Tea Party for the credit downgrade rather than the debt.
“I believe this is, without question, the Tea Party downgrade,” Kerry said. “This is the Tea Party downgrade because a minority of people in the House of Representatives countered the will of even many Republicans in the United States senate."
How will appointing a hyper-partisan tax cheat help this committee function?
Answer:-No. He is responsible for the mess in Washington D.C. He is same old tax and spend.
- Question:-Will the super committee fail if Republicans don't compromise and offer to put revenues on the table?
And not just tax increases on the middle class through elimination if popular deductions, but REAL tax increases on those who now control all the extra cash, the 1%.
