Super Committee Fails to Reach a Deficit Deal

 

The Joint Economic Committee on Deficit Reduction failed to agree on a plan to reduce federal spending and lower the nation's deficit on Nov. 21. President Obama scolded Republicans for continuing to block a tax hike for the wealthiest two percent of Americans, which he said would prevent deep cuts into research, education and Medicare among other sectors.
