Skip to comments.Source: Democrats Murray, Baucus, Kerry on Super Committee
Posted on 08/09/2011 2:50:06 PM PDT by clove
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., will appoint Democratic Sens. Patty Murray of Washington, Max Baucus of Montana, and John Kerry of Massachusetts to the new super committee tasked with finding $1.2 trillion in additional deficit reduction by November 23, according to a senior Democratic aide familiar with Reids decision, which is expected to be made public as early as Wednesday.
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.
Reids decision to tap Murray will likely be met with scrutiny, as she is also chairing the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee 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.

5 UberLiberal scum.
But we'll still be in Libya, of course.
Yep. It's a set up, and the dumbass Republicans ignored the TEA party prophets who tried to warn them.
Never dance with the devil, because you'll always get burnt. The Republicans never learn.
“Well the good news for Democrats, now over half the country can identify a picture of John Kerry. The bad news, the majority still thinks he’s the dad from ‘The Munsters.”’ Jay Leno
“They say John Kerry is the first Democratic presidential candidate in history to raise $50 million in a three-month period. Actually, that’s nothing. He once raised $500 million with two words: ‘I do.’” Jay Leno
“They had a profile of John Kerry on the news and they said his first wife was worth around $300 million and his second wife, his current wife, is worth around $700 million. So when John Kerry says he’s going after the wealthy in this country, he’s not just talking. He’s doing it!” Jay Leno
“An Internet rumor claims that John Kerry had an affair with a young woman. When asked if this was similar to the Clinton- Lewinsky scandal, a spokesman said ‘Close, but no cigar.’” Jimmy Fallon, Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update”
correction - 3 UberLiberal scum appointed by Sen. “Lord Hee-Haw” Reid.
Makes me really wonder about the majority of voters in Washington (Murray and Cantwell - really?), Kalifornia (Boxer and Feinstein - really?), Minnesota (Franken - really?), and Maryland (Mikulski - really?).
In other words, everything the Dems do on the committee will be geared toward re-election efforts.
That's the message...loud and clear.
I just threw up in my mouth....
Jeeze, what a brain trust!
Are they cutting the budget or splitting the atom?
And, of course the other MA Senate seat (Brown's) is in play also.
Probably BS? Has there ever been anything else? :>)
To be fair to Washington voters, King County steals votes and Rossi was put up against Murray after losing two relatively close gubernatorial elections in a row. To add insult to injury, Rossi ran as “I’m the Republican” and wouldn’t answer policy questions.
Almost like anyone of this group:
Draw your own parallels.
Combined IQ = 105...and 100 of those points belong to Baucus.
Baucus is also an avowed, professional drunk!
The Three DUmmigos
AS soon as a Director is Senate approved, the CFPB goes into operation. It is the perfect tool with integration with the IRS to have the IRS wired in directly to everyones’ accounts for monitoring, data collection, and, I think, coming direct extraction of taxes at any interval the CFPB IRS decides on thru the Directors’ wide administrative powers in response to the CFPB’s Council of 5 or 10 to be, all appointed and approved by the Senate.
Direct tax extractions are probably coming thanks to the Dems and the failed election of 2008 to achieve a Republican Senate.
A perfect selection of pliable, well-heeled, in-the-bag useful idiots who can be depended upon to take obotic instruction.
We have already heard of late from useful idiot Kerry, carrying the talking-point Tea Party Downgrade banner.
Freeper Liz has no better description-—Ovomitons.
BTW-— locked thread had some good comments:
This is a complete waste of time and money.
Taxes are fine for some people and not others. Just ask Timmy at Treasury.
Of course, but it is another excuse to spend...spend...spend our money and laugh while they are doing it.
Look, I don't care you you sub with who, that line-up is definitely proof that the Democrats are in deep trouble.
This will like watching the “Keystone Kops” how pathetic is that when things are so desperate...though the comic relief may be welcomed and think of all the great “sound bites” for re-election we can use against them....
They’re taking it very seriously. It’s the Republicans who have to do the heavy lifting, and the Senate is where they are the weakest. We’re about to get screwed the way we were when Obamacare was passed by the Democrats.
Max , I am so drunk I will vote for anything, just get me that girls number Baucus.
If they put Coburn on it, you can bet there will be a compromise. He will be the seventh vote the Dems need.
I wonder if the Swift Boat Veterans and POW's for Truth will come out of retirement to castigate Reid for Kerry's selection to this committee.
They’re not expecting cameras in the meeting rooms.
Three pieces of leftist shit. Can’t wait to see who the other three are - Hitler, Stalin, and Chavez?
The people who agreed to this "deal" will find that 1) it is no deal, 2) That they will be part of the group that has to go in 2012, and 3) that our national security will be hurt terribly as long as this abomination is allwed to stand.
If they do not find the cuts, the cuts will come down automatically and a huge part of it will be on the military. IOW< it gives the dems what they want anyway...leaving the largest cuts on the military and not their pet social programs through which they pay off their supporters, and further enslave Americans and trap them in a sick circle of voting for those who give them a hand out which destroys their initiative and makes them dependent on these warped politicians.
These dems will have very little reason to come to a deal with the Republicans on the committee who are very likely to push for real cuts...meaningful cuts in the size and scope of government and its out of control spending, which is exactly what must happen to end this madness.
It will now be left to the incoming congress in 2013 to straighten this out...God grant that we turn these other vipers and career pols, and rascals out, wholesale.
Not a chance.
They are going to squash any progress on real cuts to force it to the across the board cuts option which will especially decimate the military. It’s their wet dream to see America disarmed so here’s their chance.
batting second and playing playing catcher...Lindsay Graham (woohoo woohoo!!!)
batting third and playing left field....Olympia Snowe (woohoo woohoo!!!)
Thats okay, we will probably end up with McCain, Graham, and Snow for the GOP.
Super Committee = Super Commie BS. Tactics of Totalitarians. FSuper Committee.
Who is in OUR house? We control the purse-strings. Why have you defaulted your responsibility to this scam? DEFUND socialist collectives foreign and domestic...NOW. Pick some. Start.
If they can make it to the first session without drilling chimp drool all over themselves, we may be in even more serious trouble than when pResident Downgrade took over.
“But she is also a member of leadership, a senior member of the Budget Committee, and a woman..”
I object! Who says it’s a woman? Until the honorable representatives from the great state of Washington speak to us and tell us what species it is, it should not be seated.
Ask if it can puzzle out this mystery: 2 + 2 = ?
John Kerry walks into a bar and the bartender says, “Why
the long face?”
Let us all note: the spineless, worthless REPUBICANS are gong along with this crap, just like always.
Give it some time.....
“So you have the stupidest woman in the Senate.....”
I’ll see their Patty Murray and raise them a Barbara Boxer....
Kerry is no genius either.....
They need to DISMANTLE the sloven beast that chokes the country to death, NOT give it Viagra!
This is a sick joke. We are so screwed.
Oh yeah, that’s a “balanced approach”
Be interesting to know who we send to counter THESE keystone kops!
