Super Committee members are broken down by The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur. Will we end up with the so-called 'grand bargain' (a bipartisan effort between the Republicans and Democrats leading to cuts to Social Security and Medicare)?

Sen. Mitch McChinless Picks

Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Arizona) - GUILTY

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania) - GUILTY

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) - GUILTY

Rep John Boehner Picks

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) GUILTY

Rep. Dave Camp (R-Michigan) GUILTY

Rep. Fred Upton (R-Michigan, Koch head) GUILTY

Sen. Harry Reid Picks

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana) GUILTY

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass) NOT GUILTY

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Washington) NOT GUILTY

Rep. Nancy Pelosi Picks

Rep. James Clybrun (D-S.Carolina) GUILTY

(the only person on the black caucus to support Obama's failed policies)

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland) GUILTY

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Cali) NOT GUILTY

    This Super Committee is an abomination and is exactly what Obama wanted. Knowing that neither side will cooperate, he wants the "automatic" cuts to go into effect, slashing the Military budget so he can blame Republicans for not cooperating.

    If Super Committees can get the job done, the people are not being represented as we vote for representation in Congress, not a corruption of the process. Our Constitution is eroding before our eyes.

    The only "Super Committee" that matters is the electorate and, hopefully, it will speak loudly and clearly in November, 2012.

    This needs to be stopped before it ever gets started.
