Here are the members of the "Super Committee" that are going to "fix" our budget/debt crisis AND what the National Debt WAS when they were elected to Congress.. Arsonists giving Fire Prevention Advice is an analogy that comes to mind...

These are the 9 members of the "Super Committee" named thus far. There are still 3 to be named in the next couple of day by House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.  I put their name, political party, House or Senate AND what the National Debt was when the took office.

Not to be cynical (ok, I am cynical), but the SAME people who watched/participated in creating this problem are going to be the ones to fix it?  REALLY?? I am not confident of this process.  Hope/Change I am wrong...
