Conrad Says Entitlement Reform Must Start in the Senate

Serious entitlement reform “must originate in the Senate, the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee said Wednesday,” The Hill reports.

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), the chairman of the budget panel, said the only hope for entitlement reform would be the bipartisan talks among a small group of senators.

"At the end of the day, my own judgment is this has got to start in the Senate, it’s got to be bipartisan, and if we demonstrate that a group of us — a significant number of us — can come together, I believe that will bring the president and House to the table," Conrad said on MSNBC. "Because then they’ll be under intense pressure."
