Deficit-reduction panel concedes defeat
from Government Executive
The bipartisan congressional committee tasked with finding at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction announced on Nov. 21 it cannot reach agreement by the Nov. 23 deadline, a stark if not unexpected admission that its efforts have ended in failure. The declaration came late Nov. 21 in a written statement from the 12-member Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction despite last-second discussions in closed-door meetings.
