Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., signaled disappointment with the House and Senate budget deal reached late Tuesday by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

"I'm sure its the best Paul could get, but it's not anything I can support," Coburn said, pointing to the billions in dollars of government waste that currently existed in Washington.

"We're going to raise spending back up because the political powers that be want to spend more money rather than be responsible with what we know needs to be done up here, which is hard work eliminating all the stupidity and fraud and duplication that is going on."
