Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Lineup

George Wenschhof

With the deadline for the Deficit Reduction Super Committee to reach agreement on a 1.2 trillion cut rapidly approaching, many of the members of the committee will be on the morning shows. The deadline for agreement is November 23 or automatic cuts will be activated. Agreement would need to be reached by Monday to allow time for procedural approval to take place by Wednesday.

Interestingly, Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) pointed out yesterday, the automatic cuts which would be triggered if agreement is not reached by Wednesday do not take place until 2013, which would allow plenty of time for future negotiation to take place by congressional committees before implementation.
