Who's on the "super" committee

If you listen to the buzz in the nearly empty halls of Congress, there's likely to be one Californian on the so-called "super" committee: LA Democratic Congressman Xavier Becerra.  His name keeps cropping up in the "who should be on it" articles for two reasons: he's the number two guy in the Democratic caucus and he sits on the House Ways and Means Committee - the one that writes tax law.  And the big fight to come will be whether this "super" committee will find a way to cut enough spending without raising taxes.  Democrats want new revenue, Republicans say "no."
