UpFront – Social Security Cuts loom in fiscal deal; Solutions to gun violence

They’ve almost got a fiscal deal in Washington, and there’s bad news for anyone who ever intends to retire: Barack Obama’s apparently willing to accept a cut to Social Security benefits. Dean Baker joins us to discuss the deal, and what the cut would mean. Plus: Scott Klinger on the roots of the extremely well-funded “Fix The Debt” campaign.

Also, a look at programs that actually stop gun violence–in the streets of Oakland, and around the world. We’ll be talk to violence prevention expert Garen Wintemute, and Linnea Ashley with Oakland-based Youth Alive!
