Jordan said he didn't vote for the temporary budget bill and during an interview on Fox News Sunday he says what happened last week was not consistent with what he says the American people elected lawmakers to

On this week's broadcast of "Fox News Sunday", House Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said he had "big concerns" with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) over the two-year budget deal reached last week to avoid a government shutdown.

The House is expected to vote on the budget later Thursday, but House Speaker Paul D. Ryan was optimistic that they had the votes to pass it. "And now he presides over a bill that increases spending $300 billion, a trillion-dollar deficit, when we were so poised to win this fight".

Rep. Jordan repeated those sentiments today, saying the bill was "not consistent with what the American people elected us to do, not consistent with what we told them we were going to do".

"Just a few years ago, he was viewed as the leader of fiscal responsibility in our party", Jordan said. "Of course he's got problems". He said the bill will make the military "stronger than ever before".

In a separate interview on CBS, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney defended the deal President Donald Trump approved of and said to get a boost in military spending, they had to give into some Democratic demands.

He dismissed Republicans who said there weren't enough votes in the Senate to overcome a filibuster from Democrats. "And right now the top priority for this President was getting the Defense Department the money necessary to defend the nation".
