Nancy Pelosi: Dems Will Be Forceful On Super Committee But Won't Draw 'Lines In The Sand'

Nancy Pelosi: Dems Will Be Forceful On Super Committee But Won't Draw 'Lines In The Sand'

Frustration on and off the Hill is mounting for Democrats who are worried that the newly created debt reduction "super committee" will either find itself deadlocked or end up with members of their party making more concessions than their Republican counterparts.

Even before a single member of that 12-person committee has been appointed, signs are emerging that GOP leadership will be far more intransigent during the process. Both Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) have insisted that they won't appoint anyone in their respective conferences who are open to the idea that tax rates should be increased.
