Yesterday, a bipartisan group of 70 members of the House of Representatives wrote to the congressional super committee asking them to save $1.8 trillion over the next 10 years. They propose “ending the overseas contingency operations emergency supplementals and on-budget appropriations starting in Fiscal Year 2013, providing $170 billion in Fiscal Year 2012 to fund redeployment,” and “saving more than $1.8 trillion from current law spending levels over ten years.”
