    It is unexcuseable for the not so super to have failed. None of the 12 should be re-elected. Now bring on the next 12 and continue once a month.

    I knew this so called super committee was a joke, If it only takes 12 to solve our problems, why are we paying over 500 people. What a joke. I say cut all the salaries of ALL Congress and Senators until they balance our budget. That should get them rolling.

    To quote a Democrat and one of our Nation's greatest Presidents, "The buck stops here". Harry Truman clearly understood the true meaning of LEADERSHIP. Meanwhile, it is obvious that the center plank in the current W.H. inhabitant will continue to be the blame game, divisive class-warfare rhetoric and pointing his boney finger at a Conservatives and a dysfunctional Congress! Obama is the worst President in History and ironically as a Black man, he has divided our Country
    more than any single person since the Civil War!

    Our representatives reflect the deep divisions, priorities and antipathies of our nation as a whole. The why and wherefores, and what we can do to come together, is in a book "America Adift" and a dot com website America-Adrift.

    Agree. Get Pelosi, Reid and Boehner on the next group of 12. You have two weeks. If you can't resolve the spending and tax cuts, you must resign.

    All is not lost – the people who earn over 1 million a year need to step forward past the lobbyists and speak up like Howard Schultz did.Tell the republicans to let them do their part. -and pay more tax.
    Challenge them now on the air -It may just save us!
