  1. No surprises in those ratings. The more and bigger government crows would ALL get F's. Government is the anti-economy.

  2. This committee is a Chicago trap set by the libs to ensnare the GOP so Obama can blame them during the 2012 campaign

  3. One way or the other, the GOP will get the blame for all the bad that ensues and none of the credit for the good.

  4. Chris Van Hollen (D- MD8) is on the committee to ensure that NO federal workers lose their jobs. That means, he's there to RAISE taxes, not cut spending.

  5. If the supercommittee is unable to agree on the additional reductions, or if Congress does not accept its recommendations, the law imposes automatic cuts of $1.2 trillion.

    I vote we take the automatic cuts.

  6. UNREAL:

    White House, EPA ignore Small Business Admin’s report that new coal regulations will kill jobs, economy

    President Barack Obama is ignoring heated concerns from within his own administration that new Environmental Protection Agency coal industry regulations will be economically devastating.

    The EPA is plowing forward with new Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) mandates. The regulations would force coal energy plants to install giant scrubber-like materials inside smokestacks to capture and cleanse carbon particles before their atmospheric release.

    The upgrade cost would fall on company employees and coal miners in the form of layoffs, as well as on businesses, which could expect to pay more for energy....

  7. The super committee of 12 is a super bad idea, born of a super lazy congress, and almost guaranteed to be a super collasal failure. I do hope I'm wrong. But I see no lasting solutions coming out of this.

  8. And we pick Upton who brought us that lightbulb.. here else this Rino did:

    Upton was one of only 38 House Republicans to support the Democrats’ Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 that removed millions of acres of federal lands from oil and gas leasing, thus driving up energy costs for consumers.

    Uptonwas one of only 20 Republicans to vote against an amendment that would have reduced the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 funding to 2008 levels.

    Appeals court rules against Obama healthcare law

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An appeals court ruled Friday that President Barack Obama's healthcare law requiring Americans to buy healthcare insurance or face a penalty was unconstitutional, a blow to the White House.

    [...]

    "This economic mandate represents a wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of congressional authority: the ability to compel Americans to purchase an expensive health insurance product they have elected not to buy, and to make them re-purchase that insurance product every month for their entire lives," a divided three-judge panel said....


    According to today's ruling, ObamaCare will remain in effect, however.

  10. It is sad to say but seems the Republicans are always being outsmarted by the Democrats. Aigh! :-(

  11. With only twelve members of Congress, the other 523 can go home, saving the American taxpayer a gazillion dollars in the first year. Besides, “representative in Congress” wasn’t true anyway. And then rather than calling it Congress, we can rename it the Politboro.

  12. Unreal. I'm not surprised. Every single one of these 'people' need to be fired and tried for high crimes.

    Zing. You have a point there.
