Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin, D-Ill., won’t say if the Senate will go along with the $10 billion in spending cuts that House Democrats have offered, Politico reports.

“You can’t balance the budget of America by cutting education, richard,durbin,spending, cutsresearch and innovation, and basic investment of the infrastructure of America’s future. It can’t be done,” Durbin said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

House Republicans passed legislation that would slash $61 billion in spending for the remaining seven months of the current fiscal year; Democrats countered Friday with $10 billion in proposed cuts.

Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the House Republican Conference, focused on the nation’s 8.9 percent unemployment rate, blaming it on Democrats.

“High levels of indebtedness are going to lead to high levels of high levels of taxation, which lead to high levels of unemployment. If you really want people to have paycheck instead of government checks, we’ve got to put the nation on a fiscally sustainable course,” Hensarling also said on "Fox News Sunday."
