Rep. Alan Grayson Calls The Grand Bargain ‘an Artificial Crisis To Steal From The Middle Class’


via The Young Turks

Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL.) explains why he’s completely against the Obama administration agreeing to a Grand Bargain with Republicans. “The Democratic should be united,” Grayson says. “We are the party that created social security. We are the party that created Medicare. We should stand behind it, and we should protect it. It’s amazingly popular among the voters. Why should we shoot ourselves in the head by saying we’re going to end these programs or even cut back these programs?”
