So what's the Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, aka the supercommittee, doing two weeks after it got set up? Tons of stuff, according to co-chairpersons Patty Murray and Jeb Hensarling.
Engaging in serious discussions. Deciding on the rules.Setting a schedule. “And exploring how to build a committee staff that will help us achieve success” the Washington Democrat in the Senate and the Texas Republican in the House said in a joint statement today.
Oh, and committee members and staff are “eager to engage one another as we begin our work.”
Good thing, too, considering there's only three months left before the committee's recommendations for cuts or taxes is due.
