Congressman Bob Filner; Supercommittee Failure, Medical Marijuana Crackdown & City Pension Plan
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Congressman Bob Filner joins us to talk about the Congressional Supercommittee's failure to reach a deal, medical marijuana crackdown and the City of San Diego's pension reform plan.
Bob Filner, Congressman, (D-51st District)
This week the Congressional Supercommittee threw in the towel. The group of 12 say they will not find an agreement on whittling down the national deficit by one point two trillion dollars and triggering automatic cuts. The lion's share of the automatic cuts come out of defense spending which is crucial to San Diego's economy.
To discuss this political failure in Washington and how it might affect San Diego is Congressman Bob Filner, Democrat, representing the 51 District in San Diego and Imperial County.
