Seniors in Tucson rally against cuts

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A few senior citizens rallied Monday outside the Tucson Social Security office to protest possible cuts to their benefits.

The group was made up of seniors with the alliance for retired Americans.  Some dressed in costumes for Halloween.

Their protest is in response to a new super committee in Washington looking to cut $1.5 trillion from the federal budget over the next decade.

Cuts to Medicare and Social Security are on the table.

"We worked hard for this all of our life, and they want to take away something.  Why don't they cut their salaries?  You don't hear them doing that," said senior citizen Yahudah Ben Yisra'El.

The super committee must present a deficit reduction plan to Congress by November 23.
