Grijalva returns from debt debate

TUCSON, Ariz. -- After a long two weeks, Representative Raul Grijalva was back in the Old Pueblo Thursday.

The debt ceiling debate that intensified late last month kept the congressman in Washington for an extended period of time.

"We're gonna have automatic across the board cuts, that will involve every program, including the military," said Grijalva of the history making legislation.

Grijalva says he hopes his colleagues have learned a lesson not to act like this again these next 6 months as the group of 12 hammers out more cuts.
