The budget agreement was reached by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and approved by the House in a bipartisan vote last Thursday. Though the deal faces staunch opposition by Republicans in the Senate, Johnson has conceded his support.

"The budget deal struck by Paul Ryan and Patty Murray is no 'grand bargain,' but I credit Paul with understanding that a grand bargain is not possible at this point in time," Johnson said in his statement. "Although I disagree with a number of provisions in the bill, on balance the good outweighs the bad. As long as the Senate does nothing to worsen the bill, I intend to support it.”
