WATCH: Grijalva Calls For End To War In Afghanistan: "Cost To Our Future Is Too Enormous"

Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD7) took to the House floor yesterday calling for a "responsible" conclusion to U.S. military action in Afghanistan.  He noted that it is costing our country "the ability to recover and prosper." 

Grijalva, who is also the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, concluded his speech thusly: "Be responsible, but end it. The cost to America, the cost to our future is too enormous to continue on the path we're on.  A path that has no end."
