Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has issued a warning to republicans to keep Medicare cuts off the table, saying democrats will not cave on cutting funding to the important program.

"It's time Republicans abandon their ideological plan to change Medicare as we know it and work with us to strengthen and preserve our promise to seniors instead of what they want to do."

Reid went on to say that democrats aren't opposed at looking at how the program is running and making it better, but that slashing funds would make Medicare too expensive for seniors and drive health care costs higher.
