Video: Congressman: Budget Deal Violates My Principles

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) wants to be supportive of Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget deal he negotiated with Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), even though it raises federal spending beyond the $967 billion limit set by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA). Gohmert told, “He says it doesn’t violate our principles – but it violates the previous agreement we had. And that’s kinda part of my principles.”
