Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin praised Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) willingness to work on entitlement reform while on the Senate floor Wednesday stating, “I don’t disagree with Paul Ryan saying we have got to look honestly at Medicare.”

“If we don’t touch Medicare in about 10 or 12 years it goes broke and we can’t let that happen. So we have to look at Medicare in a sensible way to reduce the costs of Medicare,” Durbin added.
