Thune A Likely No Vote On Budget

The House of Representatives passed a compromise budget deal last week, and then headed out of Washington for the year.

The Senate will debate the bill this week before adjourning.

Thune says at this point, he is not likely to vote for the budget deal…

 

The two-year deal caps 2014 spending at $1.012 trillion, up from $967 billion, and 2015 spending at $1.014 trillion, up from $995 billion, and replaces the sequester with more targeted spending cuts.
