The budget deal that has been brought together by GOP leaders and the White House is being seen by many as outgoing House Speaker John Boehner's last hurrah, but Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said Wednesday the deal is being crammed down lawmakers' throats, just like other legislation in recent years.
"Time and time again, and before the new leadership comes in, they do it again," Rep. Jim Jordan, who leads the House conservative Freedom Caucus, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.
"We get this less than 48 hours before we're supposed to vote on it."
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan
, who is expected to win the vote to replace Boehner, on Wednesday said he is resigned to accept the deal, as House members want to create a "clean slate" and move on to other pressing issues.
Earlier in the week, though, Ryan had commented that "this process stinks" and that the House won't be running that way in the future, as the deal should have been worked on for several months.
Jordan said Wednesday he agrees.
The deal increases the borrowing authority by a trillion-and-a-half dollars, but it does not cut spending, and there should have been more discussion before it passed, he said.
"We met with Paul Ryan last week, and one of the things we discussed was go early or go home," said Jordan. "Pass that bill and tell the Senate it's your turn to do something ... sustain the debate and take a good position and then don't move. That's what we haven't done under the past leadership."
