The infamous debt-ceiling deal created a so-called Super Committee of six Senators and six members of Congress. It's their job, between now and Thanksgiving, to find $1.2 trillion in savings over ten years. If they come to agreement, then both houses of Congress will have to vote up or down. No amendments. No filibusters. No delays. The Super Committee is now complete, with three members appointed by leaders of each party in each house. Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has named Xavier Becerra of Los Angeles as one of three Democrats from Congress.
