Here's what happened on day one of the Super Congress meeting.
That's good old bipartisan, blue ribbon committee work for you.
Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said Thursday he told congressional leaders he would not serve on the debt supercommittee if it was going to consider further Pentagon budget cuts.
Kyl made clear during a luncheon speech on Capitol Hill that the military industrial complex has a major ally on the high-level committee.[...]
Kyl announced he will not only quit the panel if further Defense cuts become part of its deliberations, but added that he will push that it "waive" the Defense-specific triggers that were in the August debt law.
There is the slight problem that if he quits and the committee fails, defense cuts are automatically triggered. Of course, he might not have intended that to be a factual statement.
