On supercommittee, growing doubts about reaching a debt deal
Lori Montgomery and Rosalind S. Helderman
With just 10 days left before a Thanksgiving deadline, members of the congressional supercommittee appear increasingly pessimistic about the odds of forging a debt-reduction deal, despite a new offer by Republicans to raise taxes.
The public debate has grown more divisive since both sides laid out their latest offers last week. Negotiators, already under attack from the left, are facing fresh pressure from the anti-tax right. And charges of betrayal are expected to intensify Monday when the House returns from a week-long break, fueling concerns that a deal could emerge from the supercommittee only to die in the House or the Senate.
