Get ready! The woman who helped Barack Obama spend the United States into a downgrade has chosen her players for the super committee.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has chosen Democratic Reps. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Xavier Becerra of California to serve on the bipartisan House and Senate super committee that will seek $1.5 trillion in additional deficit reduction cuts by Nov. 23.
Van Hollen is the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee and Clyburn – the highest ranking African American member of the House -- is the assistant Democratic leader. Both men had served as Pelosi’s choices for spots on the budget working group this year headed by Vice President Joe Biden.
Becerra, the highest ranking Latino lawmaker in the House, is the Democratic Caucus’ vice chairman and a member of the Ways and Means Committee. He served on the special White House deficit-reduction commission last year co-chaired by former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, eventually voting against its recommendations.
