Wyoming's U.S. Senators to vote against budget compromise

Wyoming’s two U.S. Senators plan to vote against a budget compromise that will be taken up by the Senate on Wednesday.  Senator Mike Enzi spoke out against the deal on the Senate floor.  Enzi says it cuts too little, if anything.

“We talk about how we have reduced the deficit.  Reduced the deficit?  Yeah, that means we used to be overspending a trillion dollars a year and now we are only overspending $500 billion, which is half a trillion.  That’s still overspending,” says Enzi.

Enzi says that he doubts the proposed spending cuts will ever materialize. He says Congress will find a way to reverse the cuts in future years.
