More time for the super committee?

We're barely into the Super Committee Countdown and here comes word that the panel might vote to give itself more time to craft a deficit cutting deal.

22 Days Super Committee CountdownOnly in D.C.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised by such postponements from the folks who regularly bring us continuing budget resolutions and retroactive tax laws.

I'm not sure, however, just how to read the possible push back of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction's Nov. 23 deadline.

It could be an indication of just how far apart Democratic and Republican members are. That's the conventional wisdom.

Or, if I opt to be a glass half full kind of gal (and we all know that's perky me!), it could be seen as a signal that real progress is being made and the committee members just want to make sure they don't have to rush to dot all the I's and cross all the T's.

Yeah, that's what's happening.

In the meantime, while the super committee dukes things out goes about its work deliberately, PopVox has come up with an interactive program that lets us tell (after registering) the Representatives and Senators exactly how they should trim between $1.2 billion and $1.5 billion from the federal budget deficit over the next 10 years.
