Saying there will be no grand bargain in the House-Senate budget conference involving spending cuts to entitlement programs, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claimed everyone is “willing to pay more” in taxes.

When asked by a Nevada Public Radio host what Republicans would have to concede to get Medicare and Social Security cuts on the table, Reid made it clear he is more interested in getting rid of the only cuts to actual spending seen thus far — sequestration, as reported by Roll Call.

“On sequestration, we’ve done one year of sequestration. It has been brutal,” Reid said.

“The only people who feel there shouldn’t be more coming in to the federal government from the rich people are the Republicans in the Congress,” Reid said. “Everybody else, including the rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more.”
