Ok..the bill is passed. And now we're going to have this new supercommittee of Congress..composed of 12 members, who will decide (hopefully) on where the additional spending cuts will come from. Good luck with that. Congress, for years, was unable to decide on which unneeded military bases to close..they had to have a special commission to decide.
But I digress.
Now, Boehner, Pelosi, Reid and McConnell each have to name THREE memebers of the new supercommittee.
So, Red Staters, here's your chance to display your powers of political prognostication. Name 'em.
First person who posts the most number of correct names before the panel is announced wins. Maybe we can get Erick to come up with a prize.
Here are some possible hints/clues to help you:
1. Would ANYONE up for election in 2012 want to be on this panel?
2. Anyone chosen will most likely have a very, VERY, VERY safe seat.
3. Could anyone who has already announced retirement be selected? That person is ipso facto bulletproof.
4. Pelosi's nominees will of course, represent DIVERSITY. There will be one member from the CBC, one from the progressive caucus, and at least one will be a female.
So, have at it.....
