The super committee failed in its task to reduce the deficit nearly two years ago.
Republican leaders want to set up another special working group to solve the impasse in Congress.
Remember the super committee? Its failure triggered sequestration's trillion dollar haircut to the federal budget. The committee imploded because the two sides couldn't agree on changes to the tax code.
The politics on tax issues haven't changed, but now Republicans are demanding changes to the health law before they'll fund the government.
Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) served on the super committee and opposes this latest idea from Republicans.
"The idea of creating another committee, when the last one took three months and didn't succeed, is a diversion," he says.
House Republicans combined a bill to set up a new special committee with a measure to pay federal workers like Capitol Police officesr who weren't furloughed on time.
