Still No Agreement On Deficit Deal
With just over a week left, there is still no deficit deal in sight for the Congressional supercommittee. Lawmakers admit they are far from agreeing on $1.2 trillion dollars in deficit savings over the next decade. The panel is divided along partisan lines.

The committee is stuck on finding a mutually agreeable blend of tax increases and government cuts.
