So it finally comes down to the senate to decide if this game ends on Tuesday.

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to take up the debt-ceiling deal at noon Tuesday Aug 2 2011.

The agreement reached Sunday by President Barack Obama and congressional leaders from both parties calls for up to $2.4 trillion in savings over the next decade, raises the debt ceiling through the end of 2012 and establishes a special congressional committee to recommend long-term fiscal reforms.

The legislation needs to reach Obama's desk on Tuesday. If the current $14.3 trillion debt limit is not increased by that point, Americans could face rapidly rising interest rates, a falling dollar and shakier financial markets, among other problems.

The cut over 10 years is half of what they spend in a year. This is nothing but a game. The real reason behind all this is to get in place a Super Congress. There angle is that there are too many people involved with the running of our country so when the nation is at a crossroad like it was, The Legion of Doom headed by Obama can supercede the constitution.

To humor you, I did search this in-depth. This so-called "Super Congress" is nothing more than a committee. There are 21 in the Senate, 21 in Congress, and 5 joint committees.

I can't possibly bring my self to understand why these rumors spread. I know, some guy said so on ATS but this is ridiculous. Committees have been around for a long long time. This is nothing new.

Out of this bill come MUCH more dire consequences than creation of a provisional committee. This seems like a distraction to me.

Even if a "super congress" were planned, how would that be scarier than secret executive orders? The latter is much worse and we've had that forever.
