Nine of the 12 “debt super committee” members have been chosen, with House Speaker John Boehner selecting three fellow Republicans to join the other six members chosen by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Only House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has yet to make her selections.
Rep. Pelosi has asked for transparency during the super committee process, calling for sessions to be made public for visitors and available to watch online. Speaker Boehner and other organizations have made the same request.
However, The Atlantic says this could be a bad thing.
