Senators Blunt and McCaskill both say there’s opportunity in Super Committee debate for things to change in Washington.

McCaskill says for the first time in a while, Republicans are looking at raising revenue, and Democrats are willing to look at cutting some programs too. She says the idea of putting everything on the table has helped the possibility that the committee will meet its goal.

Blunt says this committee has the power to make some long term agricultre funding legislation happen.

He’s been reccomending that to one of the members, but says he hasn’t talked to the committee as a whole. He says right now the policies are done yearly.

Blunt and McCaskill admit there is also a chance the committee may not reach its goal. The Committee has a goal of making $1.2 trillion in reccomendations by November 23.
