Raúl Grijalva rejects Obama's Social Security cuts

Democracy Now!:

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 "to very long-term damage down the road."
