Editor's Note: The deadline for the super committee is fast-approaching. Will they reach a deal in time? Anderson Cooper is Keeping Them Honest at 8 p.m. ET.

At least this time, shutdowns and defaults really aren't a threat if the super committee fails to approve a debt-reduction plan by next Wednesday - its official deadline.
So what is the super committee trying to accomplish and what's at stake?
How much they'll cut: No one knows ... still.
