ZERO Senate Republicans support Paul Ryan Budget Deal...
It's war! Senate gears up for epic battle as ZERO Republicans line up to support budget agreement (and Democrats need to find at least five)
- Congress needs to pass a new budget by January 15 to avoid another government shutdown
- Republican Rep. Paul Ryan and Democratic Sen. Patty Murray negotiated a framework and tried to sell it to their respective majorities
- The GOP-led House passed the plan Thursday night despite complaints from tea partiers and other budget hawks
- But objections from Senate Republicans, including a claim that the plan restores spending cuts by shortchanging veterans' pensions, could kill it
