Sen. John McCain rebuked Republican colleagues who plan to vote against the budget deal as lacking "intellectual integrity," the Washington Examiner
"My only response to that is that I respect their vote but I'd like to know what we do in order to avoid another shutdown of the government," the Arizona Republican said.
"I have concerns about the budget deal, everybody I think does because of the nature the way business is done, but to somehow vote against it without an alternative to keep the government from shutting down, then I think lacks some intellectual integrity."
McCain said he would vote for the bipartisan budget bill, which has already been passed in the House.
