The Congressional "super committee" charged with tackling the country's debt held its first public hearing in more than a month. With less than a month before the deadline for the panel's final report, Democratic members of the committee outlined their plan on Wednesday, which they say will cut $3 trillion from the country's debt. The plan is strikingly similar to the "grand bargain" nearly reached by President Obama and Speaker John Boehner over the summer.
