Super Committee GOP 'Put America Second and the Politics First'

In a National Journal/United Technologies live policy briefing on Tuesday morning, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., said that Republican members of the super committee refused every step of the way to meet Democrats halfway on a deficit-reduction deal.

Kerry said that Democrats unanimously pushed for a near-$4 trillion deal at the expense of many "sacred cows" of Democratic entitlement policies, but Republicans would not compromise.
