    with a couple exceptions (e.g., Base closure commissions) blue ribbon committees have only one purpose--kick the can down the road.  Committees serve to give the semblance of movement and work without actually doing any.  

    As far as the mandated to be acted on by congress bit...so was the Bowles-Simpson committee.  Yeah, they couldn't even get a proposal out of committee on that one.
