'Super committee' headed for failure, aides concede

Members of the congressional "super committee" - the bipartisan panel tasked with finding at least $1.2 trillion in budget savings over the next decade - will likely announce Monday that they have failed, according to both Democratic and Republican aides.

"No decisions or agreement has been reached concerning any announcement or how this will end," one senior Democratic aide said. "But, yes, the likely outcome is no agreement will be reached."

Markets dropped as news spread of the panel's apparent failure. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had declined over 300 points by noon Monday.

    Everybody has a right to their opinion.
    Everyone, democrat or republican.
    People can sure sling out the insults, but if they perceive one, all of a sudden it's unfair?
    I am sure glad I read here that republicans are on the public dole, I knew all along, but nobody wanted to admit.
    We can disagree on politics, gung hoe, but I will not be denigrated by you, or anybody, for my beliefs.
    I don't insult *you*, do I?

    Skinny women, lol!
    I've always been thin to the point of almost too skinny; then I found out my thyroid was chugging at 5x over what it should have that fixed, and now I'm at a healthy weight.

    I love to cook,

    Chrissy, my heart will be with you this Thanksgiving, and one prayer I'll be sending in thanks is that you are ok.
    Love ya, sista!

    disabled who dont have sufficient work history and have not paid into fica sufficiently over the previous l0 years. Its the GOP that want to abolish that program and it may or may not affect you since you stated you can work. That screams fraud to me!

    Ah banasy thats a million $ question! I asked myself the same thing a month ago remember, when that riff between him & i started. No answer for it boys will be boys i guess. But shame, shame when they claim to be a man of god & then act like the devil.
