After todays deficit committee meeting, co-Chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling slipped out a back door while co-Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray told reporters, Im not going to discuss any details.
“I am leaving the super committee alone. I’m not giving them any advice. If one of the individual members of any of the 12 ask me a question, I will talk to them in private,” Reid told reporters Sept. 20. “But I’m not out here going to tell them what they should or shouldn’t do. They have an extremely difficult job. ... I’m not about to start negotiating with all of you as to what they should or shouldn’t do.”
With Congress in recess, the super committee is not slated for any more full-panel sessions this week.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
