After months of budget negotiations, tensions between Congressional "super committee" members have reached what seems to be a breaking point. With only three days left before their deadline to cut 1.2 trillion dollars from the federal debt, 12 super committee members made the rounds to the Sunday political news outlets and publicly aired their grievances. Republican Jeb Hensarling told "Fox News Sunday," the following: "Unfortunately, what we haven't seen in these talks from the other side is any Democrats willing to put a proposal on the table that actually solves the problems."
On NBC's "Meet the Press" Senator John Kerry said, "There is a real threat that not only will be there a downgrade, but that the market, on Monday, will look again at Washington and say, 'You guys can't get the job done.'"
