House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., announce a proposed spending plan at the Capitol on Tuesday.

The final count for the vote in the House yesterday on the bipartisan budget bill was 332 to 94. The modest pact was designed to ease the effect of the next round of spending cuts which will hit next month.

Supporters are relieved that the agreement will help avoid another government shutdown, but this bipartisan budget deal faced plenty of bipartisan opposition, too.
