    Patty Murray, Dem from Washington, and Jeb Hensarling, Rep. from Texas, are the co-chairs on the new 12 person bipartisan supercommittee in charge of cutting $1.2 trillion from the deficit by November 23rd, 2011. They are planning on starting up a website to bolster ideas. If they are not successful with this when presented to congress, automatic cuts will be made, either way. Think this will work, at all? Is $1.2 trillion even going to really help?
