Arizona Progressive Rep. Raul Grijalva Co-Headlines Letter To Obama Re: Social Security

(UPDATE (1/25):  I received a response from Rep. Pastor yesterday.  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.)

Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD7) is co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.  As such, he is the first signer on a letter to President Obama urging him to tell Congress "hands off Social Security", during the State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Talking Points Memo has a copy of the one-page letter.

Potentially interestingly, fellow Arizona Representative and CPC member Ed Pastor (D-CD4) did not send the letter.  An effort to ascertain why is being made.
