Conservatives Seek Defeat Of Budget Plan

Updated: Thursday, December 12 2013, 02:08 PM CST

Conservative groups are urging House Republicans to oppose a budget deal that is coming up for a vote later today.

Some House Democrats are also unhappy with it, because it doesn't contain a provision to renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed. But the plan is expected to pass in the House.

It would ease $63 billion in scheduled spending cuts and replace them with longer-term savings measures.

Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama complains that "it's a fee increase to fuel a spending increase."
