Rep. Van Hollen on super committee deadline: 'We know what is at stake'

Time is running short in Washington for congress to reach a debt deal. There's now only five days left for the so-called super committee to come to an agreement. 

The bi-partisan group needs to shave $1.2 trillion dollars from the nation's deficit. But after two months of negotiating, the super committee still remains deadlocked over debt and taxes.

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans talks with super committee member Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland) about what's standing in the way of a deal.
