Pelosi Picks Her Revenue Enhancers for Super Committee







Washington, DC

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (D-CA), announced her picks for the upcoming Congressional Super Committee by naming Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD),  Jim Clyburn (D-SC) and Xavier Becerra (D-CA) to serve on it.  The 12 member Committee will be comprised of 6 Republicans and 6 Democrats and is charged with devising a solution to the nation’s debt problem.  Pelosi stated “These are three fine tax and spend Democrats representatives of the people that will toe the line will serve our interests the nation ably. I am sure, even though the road a head is a hard one, that the Committee will do its job and find that taxes revenue enhancements are the only way out of this crisis.”

The road a head is indeed a tricky one as 7 of the 12 Committee members have to agree to any recommendations; which, if approved would then be sent to the whole Congress for an up or down vote.  Democrats are fairly optimistic about the outcome of the Committee’s recommendations.  Rep Clyburn of South Carolina confidently asserted “The Republicans will see the light and do what right’s. Once they have to defend starving our soldiers in the field to keep billionaires from paying their fair share – it’s over.”  Van Hollen voiced his approval by saying “…this is about fairness. This is about fixing the damage that George Bush caused.  It’s about stopping billionaires from getting a free ride.”  Rep Becerra quietly nodded in agreement and reiterated “Republicans will push the extremists who are crazy enough to think their money is their own overboard.  No way they’re going to stand up and let us demagogue remind the American people about the draconian defense cuts issue on and on till next November.”
