Obama Endorses Deficit Task Force
I don't want to spend a lot of time on this because if you read the article it appears that it is likely dead on arrival. What I did find funny is the plan for the roll out. If you give Obama anything, give him his arrogance.
The bipartisan 18-member panel backed by Obama would study the issue for much of the year and, if 14 members agree, report a deficit reduction blueprint after the November elections that would be voted on before the new Congress convenes next year.
So, they want to spend the year looking at this, announce the findings after the elections, and vote on it before the new Congress is sworn-in in 2011?
Anyone else think there is a lot to worry about with this idea?
