Too Hard? Really? With 9% Unemployment?

Some are speculating that the Supercmmittee’s work is too complex.

“It’s like getting assigned your Ph.D. dissertation and being told you have six weeks to do it,” said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, told Roll Call’s Jonathan Strong.

This isn’t that complicated, especially when it comes to Social Security and Medicaid. What is complicated is that Democrats don’t want to do the obvious things that must be done because they then cannot campaign on a do-nothing Congress.

The president’s absurd theatrics the past two weeks, however, may have boxed the Supercommittee’s Democrats into doing the necessary reforms because he has defined himself as wholly political and cynical, and if the Congressional effort fails, the 23 Democratic Senate seats on the ballot in November 2012 aren’t going to survive in anything like their current configuration.
