Deficit Reductions? It looks bad…

9 of the 12 members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, tasked with finding $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions over the decade, have been announced; it looks bad. Because there are 6 Ds and 6 Rs, 1 member must switch sides to reach 7 votes for passage. The best chance of that would be if 1 or 2 senators from the Gang of Six were on the JSCDR, but there are none. Will they be able to agree on a Chief of Staff?
