Deficit Reduction Committee Complete
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has tapped her three choices to serve on the deficit reduction super committee: Representatives James Clyburn (D-SC), Xavier Becerra (D-CA), and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD). Pelosi vowed to appoint Democrats who would protect entitlement programs and push for revenue increases. All 12 committee members are now in place.
