Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called President Obama's proposal to Republicans a "joke" when it comes to entitlement reform, during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. Graham has held that Republicans should agree to revenue increases as long as Democrats agree to entitlement reform.
"The president's plan, when it comes to entitlement reform, is just -- just quite frankly a joke," Graham said. "So I don't think they're serious about finding a deal."
Graham did talk about what entitlement reforms he wanted to see in a potential deal.
"There's no age adjustment for Medicare and Social Security, there is no means testing in the president's plan," Graham said. "We should do what Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill did: Adjust the age for retirement and means test benefits. Do It together. And Republicans should put revenue on the table. And the president's plan does nothing but damn us to becoming Greece."
