      Rep. Raúl Grijalva Rejects Obama "Fiscal Cliff" Plan to Cut More from Social
      Security than Military

      <http://www.democracynow.org/appearances/rep_raul_grijalva> Rep. Raul
      Grijalva, (D-AZ), co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

      Democracy Now: 1219/122

      Democratic Rep. Raúl Grijalva of Arizona joins us to discuss his opposition
      to President Obama’s offer to cut more from Social Security than from the
      military in the ongoing negotiations over avoiding the so-called fiscal
      cliff. Obama has offered to cut some $100 billion from military spending,
      but even more from Social Security: $130 billion by adjusting the inflation
      index for Social Security benefits. Grijalva says Obama’s proposal opens the
      door "for some long-term damage down the road."
