The Republican leader also suggested that Obama and the Democrats are facing pressure from far-left liberals not to make changes to entitlements.

“I understand the dilemma the president and the majority leader have,” he said. “Their hard left doesn’t want to change anything ever. They think any dollar spent or any commitment made by the federal government on any program at any time ought to be there in perpetuity. Well, times change.”
