Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has named the three Democratic Senators who will serve on the so-called super committee to reduce the nation’s debt. Fox News has learned Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Max Baucus, D-Mont., and John Kerry, D-Mass., will fill the Democratic Senate role on the committee.Senate Republicans, House Republicans and House Democrats will also choose three members each to sit on the committee
A breakdown, starting with Murray.
One columnist at Real Clear Politics wrote:
“Murray, a member of Reid’s leadership team and tapped to be the super-committee’s co-chair… has been described by Senate aides as being “like a sister” to the Nevada majority leader….and she never misses an opportunity to inject the real-world needs of families, children and the elderly…..”
Patty Murray ” never misses an opportunity to inject the real-world needs of families, children and the elderly…”.
Yeah, like the time she heaped praise on Bin Laden. “He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. He’s made their lives better.”
Murray is the 18th most liberal member of the Senate who is 78.5 percent more liberal than her Dem comrades, based on her voting record.
Baucus, who once gave a drunken rant on the Senate floor and inserted a hefty fine and jail time into his version of the ObamaCare bill, is the 51st most liberal member of the Senate, and 48.5 percent more liberal than the rest of the Dems, as indicated by his record.
I hope Boehner selects three of the toughest conservatives in Congress to counter these three assclowns.
