REPUBLICAN SUPER CONGRESS MEMBERS PICKED
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.

I believe we can soon claim "no taxation without equal representation."

This maybe the beginning of the dissolution of the United States Union.

Every American that I have talked to about this who knows about the "Super Congress" is enraged.

Re: REPUBLICAN SUPER CONGRESS MEMBERS PICKED
maybe we should call these "picks" and tell them that if they serve on that committee then they will have violated Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution:

"All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."

The HOUSE
THE WHOLE HOUSE
ONLY THE HOUSE!

Re: REPUBLICAN SUPER CONGRESS MEMBERS PICKED
This "super congress" or "super commission" or whatever the hell lie they want to call it is nothing more than an attempt by the elite to maintain control and refuse to submitt to the will of the people. It has nothing whatsoever to do with a funtioning representative constitutional republic.

I am beyond furious.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Yes at best there were going to be 38 states unrepresented, but thanks to Dubmass Boehner's 2 picks from Michigan, there will be at least 39 states not represented. I'm hooping Pelosi picks Barney Fart Franks. These stupid fuckers need to be impeached! Cry about the Tea Party all they want, they are the ones that gave birth to the Tea Party Movement!

Re: REPUBLICAN SUPER CONGRESS MEMBERS PICKED
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reportedly made his choice for the three Democratic Senators to sit on the Catfood Commission II: Patty Murray (WA), Max Baucus (MT) and John Kerry (MA).

Additionally, Murray is expected to co-chair the committee -- officially named the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction -- along with a still unnamed House Republican. A spokesman for Reid did not respond to a request for comment.

Reid’s decision to tap Murray will likely be met with scrutiny, as she is also chairing the Senate Democrats’ campaign operation for the 2012 election cycle. But she is also a member of leadership, a senior member of the Budget Committee, and a woman on what is likely to be a male-dominated committee.

It could be worse. For instance, Kent Conrad or Joe Manchin (who lobbied for the position) or Mark Warner would be worse, from the standpoint of protecting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid or raising taxes on rich people.

Re: REPUBLICAN SUPER CONGRESS MEMBERS PICKED
I would think they should pick some people who understand math.

Jon Kyle is the idiot who said on the floor of the senate "If you want an abortion, you go to Planned Parenthood, and that's well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does,".

But Planned Parenthood's records show that only 3 percent of its funds are spent on abortions, compared to 35 percent each on contraception and sexually transmitted disease screening and treatment.

Senator Kyle's office explained the mistake,""His remark was not intended to be a factual statement, but rather to illustrate that Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives millions of dollars in taxpayer funding, does subsidize abortions."

He's right. The politicians in Washington serve one master, the NWO. The stupidest part about it is when everything does fall apart and the NWO is in place, these clowns will be standing on the sidelines crying because they are pushed aside and didn't get any of the goodies promised to them. They will have destroyed America for their own greed and in the end they will lose everything.

The super congress is unconstitutional to begin with, and that is where we should be attacking. If they can make this thing stick, we really need to impress on them that business as usual will not fly. Stop the debt, stop the spending!
