(Newser) – Jon Stewart had some tough issues to discuss with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last night, such as Congress’s abysmal approval rating (“You wonder, who are these people who approve of Congress, this 9%?” she mused). But Pelosi had one inspired idea to reduce America’s debt, as pointed out by the Atlantic Wire: “What I would like to see [us] say to the 12 people on the super committee: Get in a room, sit down, reach agreement, on public television.” She continued, explaining that her TV idea is all about transparency and openness (sorry, those of you who were hoping for sex and drama à la Real World: Congress). Sadly, Stewart didn’t bite and went to commercial.
