UPDATE Re: Rep. Pastor and Progressive Letter To Obama Re: Social Security

On Friday, we posted about Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD7) and the letter he co-headlined from the Congressional Progressive Caucus to President Obama, urging him to mention in his State of the Union address that Congress should keep its "hands off Social Security". 

We noted that caucus member Rep. Ed Pastor (D-CD4) did not sign on to the letter, and wondered why.  At our request, we received a response from the Congressman Monday.  He indicates that the letter did not get to him until it was already sent, and that he attempted to sign on after the fact.

Mystery solved.  And yes, we agree that those kind of things do unfortunately occur.

We welcome your comments about this post. Or, if you have something unrelated on your mind, please e-mail to info-at-arizonaspolitics-dot-com. Thanks.
