Governor Jon Huntsman today released the following statement on the failure of the so-called "Super Committee" and their inability to reach a decision on combating our nation's growing deficit.

"Today I empathize with Americans who are overly frustrated with our government's inability to accomplish anything," said Governor Huntsman. "We face a historic debt, and people cannot trust their elected leaders to agree on even a modest level of spending reductions. The fact that the president's utter abandonment of leadership on our debt crisis necessitated a super committee signals his failure and Washington's dysfunction. It's time to get serious. We need bold solutions and principled leadership to renew and rebuild America."
