Super Committee Fails to Reach a Deal

The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, a.k.a. the Super Committee, announced last week it was unable to reach a compromise. Under the 2011 Budget Control Act, the Committee was required to find $1.2 trillion in additional cuts by November 23 and Congress was to then vote on the package by December 23. Without a deal a series of automatic cuts — a process known as sequestration — will take effect equally across defense and nondefense discretionary spending.

By law, 18 percent of the savings must come from decreases in debt-service cost, leaving $984 billion to be split between defense spending and nonmilitary discretionary spending. The total is set to be divided equally over 10 years, or $109 billion per year from 2013 to 2021. This translates into $55 billion in cuts each year to nonmilitary discretionary spending. ADA will continue to monitor the sequestration process to identify specific nutrition and food-related program cuts as they are released.
