Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Collapse of "Supercommittee"

The so-called Supercommittee failed today because Republicans continue to insist on tax breaks for the super rich at the expense of job creation and even at the expense of Medicare and Social Security. Congressional Republicans have zero interest in governing and they certainly aren't interested in getting Americans back to work. Their singular focus is on cutting the super rich yet another big break while the rest of us are asked to give more and get less in return, year after year.
