As you know, unless you’ve been moonlighting as a cave-dweller. With the passage of the recent Debt-ceiling bill, Congress has been instructed to create a “United States Congress Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction” This committee will include 6 Democrats and 6 Republicans, 3 from each house of Congress. They’ve finally been named:
House Republicans: (3)
Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas (Co-Committee Chair)
Dave Camp, R-Michigan
Fred Upton, R-Michigan
Since I know I have friends at all sides of the political spectrum (I sit on both sides of the “aisle”) I offer this without political dialogue. Due to the importance of the work being charged to this committee I just feel this it is important to know who the committee is and why they’ve been assembled.
