(Breitbart) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reportedly finds the budget deal announced by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) “deeply concerning.”

Though Cruz has not been able to fully review the deal that increases spending beyond the sequester levels because of his 20-hour flight back from South Africa after attending Nelson Mandela’s funeral, he reportedly has taken issue with deal because it increases spending for minor promises of future reductions in the debt that may never materialize.

“We shouldn’t sacrifice the modest 2.4 percent spending cuts already in law in exchange for a mere possibility of future reductions,” a spokeswoman for Cruz told The Hill on Wednesday.
