CNS News reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Republicans are putting wealthy Americans ahead of senior citizens when they propose cost-saving changes to entitlement programs.
Asked if Democrats would be willing to go further than the $600 billion in entitlement cuts that President Barack Obama has proposed, Pelosi said that discussion should "be left until next year."
"I mean if you're collecting trophies, and if you want the scalp of seniors before you will touch one hair on the head of the wealthiest people in the country, then what's the discussion about?" Pelosi asked.
She said serious negotiations about economic security for senior citizens and families require “a longer conversation about where we have to go.”
