Super Committee Picks - Guilty/Not Guilty?
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. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) - 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.
