Who are the lawmakers who have been named to the congressional 'super committee?'

Nine lawmakers have been named to the twelve-person congressional "super committee" on deficit reduction, the bipartisan panel responsible for finding an additional $1.5 trillion in debt savings in the national budget over a ten-year period.

If progress is to be made, the negotiations will likely require political sacrifice on both sides of the aisle over issues like taxes and entitlement reform.

Today on American Morning, John Avlon, CNN contributor, and Ron Brownstein, CNN senior political analyst, join Carol Costello to weigh in on whether or not the selected lawmakers are likely to reach a meaningful deal.
