Senators, Hoyer to hold news conference urging supercommittee to “go big” (Live video, tweets)

A bi-partisan group of members of the House and Senate will hold a 10:30 a.m. ET news conference Wednesday to urge the debt “supercommittee” to make an even bigger dent in the federal deficit than the $1.2 trillion reduction it’s required to make.

Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), Mark Warner (D-Va.) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md) are among the attendees. None of them are members of the supercommittee.

Watch live video of the news conference below and view tweets from staff reporter Rosalind Helderman after the jump.
