Although Sen. Marco Rubio hasn't seen the House-Senate budget package agreed upon Tuesday, the Florida Republican slammed it nonetheless.

Rubio issued a statement via his official Web site, which reads, "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."

The statement continues, "In the short run, this budget also cancels earlier spending reductions instead of making some tough decisions about how to tackle our long-term fiscal challenges caused by runaway Washington spending. I voted against sequestration because of its effect on key programs, including the defense budget, but higher spending and more revenue are not the appropriate ways to address that problem."

Rubio also conducted a radio interview Tuesday with Fox News' Sean Hannity to speak out against the deal reached by Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and Republican Rep. Paul Ryan.

"And my sense, from what I've read, is that this budget is going to fail to accomplish those goals," Rubio said.
