WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The proposed budget deal is admittedly imperfect.
"You all know budgets," said Sen. Tim Kaine, (D-VA), to the Alexandria City Council Tuesday night. "If you compromise and work a budget out nobody gets everything they want. They're not perfect."
But, perhaps the possible budget deal is better than perfect, it's done. Well, almost.
Sen. Kaine was on hand to discuss the deal reached by Senate Budget Committee chairman Patty Murray (D-WA) and House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) Tuesday.
"It definitely puts us on a sustainable budget path for the next two years so there's work to be done beyond 2015 and there's still some issues that we're wrestling with the next couple of years," said Kaine, adding that, when seeking compromise, everyone is not going to get everything they want.
