Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said Thursday that lawmakers do not have "bad intentions"  about cuts to spending and entitlements in the budget.

"I don't think my friends in the Democratic Party have any bad intentions – we don't have bad intentions," Kinzinger told MSNBC's Morning Joe" when asked about the timing of tax cuts Thursday. "We don't do tax cuts so that we create a terrible deficit and are forced to deal with entitlements."

"We do want to balance the budget, but in our view — and it's a different political opinion than the other side of the aisle — we believe, just like a business that's in debt that expands to get out of debt . . . we have to reinvigorate an economy that's been stagnated," Kinzinger said.

Kinzinger said he was not "overly optimistic" lawmakers from both parties could work together on a budget deal.
