Reaction to the Congressional budget deal announced Tuesday by House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Committee Chair Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.:

President Barack Obama:

"This agreement doesn’t include everything I’d like – and I know many Republicans feel the same way. That’s the nature of compromise. But it’s a good sign that Democrats and Republicans in Congress were able to come together and break the cycle of short-sighted, crisis-driven decision-making to get this done. That’s the way the American people expect Washington to work."

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Chairwoman, Senate Budget Committee:

"Because of this deal, the budget process can now stop lurching from crisis to crisis."

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., Chairman, House Budget Committee:

"This budget is a step in the right direction. It is a clear improvement on the status quo."

Tim Phillips, president of the conservative Americans for Prosperity:

"We’re going to hold them accountable if they go back on sequester. The message is simple: Keep your word."

Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah:
"There’s a real concern about giving up the sequester. Republicans know that the one major victory they had was the sequester."

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.:

"We need a government with less debt and an economy with more good paying jobs, and this budget fails to accomplish both goals, making it harder for more Americans to achieve the American Dream. Instead, this budget continues Washington’s irresponsible budgeting decisions by spending more money than the government takes in and placing additional financial burdens on everyday Americans."
