US Congress is not functioning and must be voted out. Obama regime using forty czars that cannot care less about US Constitution but yet US Congress allow Obama to push America over the cliff to its lowest point in US history. Clearly, any "horse sell style" agreement or no agreement at all between Obama's liberals and the GOP conservatives will not change much in the out of control spending by the drunken sailor Obama who is working on building new world order on the ruins of American that we knew and adored only few years ago before Obama took control and push America down the drain. The American congressmen aiming at one thing which is re-election time and again. It is time to set term limits on the corrupt senators and Reps and send them home soon.

I hope that when this super comittee fails voters have the will to hold those who voted for the formation of the committee (budget controll act of 2011) accountable.

No one who voted for abdication of thier responsibility should be relected.

RE: Deficit 'supercommittee' hits rough patch
..... Many of the politicians and others now involved in the USA's financial troubles are quite innocent; they have inherited the many old problems, including the general marketing slogan/policy of "BUY NOW, PAY LATER!".
..... Piling deficits on top of the deficits of the past without any surpluses to cancel all of them should be a NO! NO! but it isn't.
..... As I keep repeating, in theory all debts should be paid up in full before the start of the next recession/slow-down of the economy, during which, and ONLY during which, deficits should be permitted in theory so as to permit governments to partly compensate for the then insufficient buying by the private sector.
..... Compare with the current financial troubles in Europe!
