House Progressives: The Caucus of No?

Suzy Khimm/Mother Jones – In particular, the Arizona Democrat said, progressives would oppose big cuts to Social Security and excessive tax cuts for the wealthy, even if they were coupled with tax cuts for the middle-class. Grijalva also said that progressives would press for a quick withdrawal from Afghanistan, threatening to raise the issue during the next round of budget negotiations. “The policy’s a failure, and we have to protect both our national treasure and human treasure,” he said, adding that withdrawal “could be decided by the military budget as part of deficit reduction—it’s not off the table.”
