"It's I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today."

WASHINGTON (WBKO) -- Wednesday Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement opposing the Ryan-Murray Budget Deal:

“There is a recurring theme in Washington budget negotiations. It's I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.[i] I think it's a huge mistake to trade sequester cuts now, for the promise of cuts later," Sen. Paul said. "The small sequester spending cuts were not nearly enough to address our deficit problem. Undoing tens of billions of this modest spending restraint is shameful and must be opposed. I cannot support a budget that raises taxes and never balances, nor can I support a deal that does nothing to reduce our nation's $17.3 trillion debt." Sen. Paul said.
