WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–April 6, 2011.   Assistant Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the President’s fiscal commission, released the following statement yesterday on Congressman Ryan’s budget proposal:

“The Ryan Republican budget has three pillars: reduce Medicare benefits by more than half; reduce Medicaid benefits for seniors in nursing homes; and reduce taxes on the wealthiest Americans.
