[quote:Anonymous Coward 1349884:MV8xNTkxMDg2XzI2Mjk0NTA4XzVGNTg4RjI=] What a friggin joke. One token tea party aligned pick, the ONLY one who voted against the debt deal. Way to go Boner and McCuntell you got your establishment boys in there. I'm sure they'll be fighting the good fight for the people. HAH!!!! [/quote]
Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have announced their selections of Republicans to staff the "Super Congress" mandated by the debt limit deal, and neither Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan nor any freshmen members were chosen.
Boehner appointed House Republican Conference chairman Jeb Hensarling of Texas to be the co-chair opposite Washington Senate Democrat Patty Murray, as well as two committee chairs: Ways & Means chairman Dave Camp and Energy & Commerce chairman Fred Upton, both of Michigan.
From the Senate, McConnell chose Jon Kyl of Arizona, Pat Toomey of Pennsyvania, and Rob Portman of Ohio.
Of the six Republicans named to the committee, only Toomey voted against the debt ceiling bill. None of the senators chosen were members of the Gang of Six who have already been working on similar issues for months.
