Not sure I really see the point of appointing a committee (paying more people) to research ways to cut the deficit in light of the fact that the drunken cats in Washington have supposedly been working on this issue in great detail over the last few moths.
How is that any different than middle management in Corporate America who are too afraid to lose their jobs when the hire consultants to do their work for them.
This is precisely the kind of wasteful spending I thought Republicans stood against. Seems like Republicans will back the measure to punt this to a more costly and less effective solution so they can later blame Democrats for delays and excessive waste.
If anyone in Washington was qualified to do their job we would not be here.
