Obama's new Super Committee sounds like...

Obama's super committee to control the debt sounds a lot like GosPlan (economic planning) from the USSR. The council's decisions took the form of decrees and decisions to the Czars(The Pres's council of ministers/national committee).

Both the Republican Party and Democratic Party have central committees. The Union commissariats directed their designated branches of administration throughout the USSR directly or through subordinate agencies; the Union-republican commissariats directed their corresponding branches, based on registers of enterprises or institutions, through republican commissariats of the same name; and the republican commissariats were responsible only to the councils of people's commissars in their own republics.

One of the duties of Gosplan was creation of Five-Year Plans.
