EL PASO - There's a protest going on all over the nation, denouncing cuts to social security - except here in El Paso, apparently.
The American Federation of Government Employees says that House Republicans have proposed slashing the social security budget.
Employees who say that would cripple the system and increase wait times are picketing at 70 offices across the country.
But here in El Paso, all was quiet at the downtown office - despite a scheduled protest here, too. We talked to a security guard and a manager, and both said they knew nothing of the protest.
