The last budget standoff culminated in a 16 day shutdown in October, costing the government billions of dollars and driving Americans' approval of Congress to record lows.
"This budget continues Washington's irresponsible budgeting decisions by spending more money than the government takes in," Rubio said, adding that the American people "deserve better."
WASHINGTON Congressional budget negotiators reached a hard fought deal Tuesday aimed at avoiding another government shutdown, agreeing on a plan that would restore some money to programs hit by impending across the board cuts but trim spending on federal retirees and raise fees on airline travel.

Federal budget deal faces test in House

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, like Ryan a potential GOP presidential contender in 2016, opposed the deal.
The deal sets 2014 spending at $1.012 trillion, higher than the $967 billion that would have taken effect under the sequester law on Jan. 15, but less than Democrats wanted. The increased spending is paid for with new fees and cuts elsewhere in the federal budget, including reductions in federal employee retirement benefits, cuts to the cost of living adjustment for military retirees who are younger than 62 and not injured or disabled, and new fees on airline travel.

"This agreement doesn't include everything I'd like and I know many Republicans feel the same way," the president said. "That's the nature of compromise. The American people should not have to endure the pain of another government shutdown for the next two years."

But the accord did little to placate leading conservative groups, who attacked the deal even before its details were announced.
Ryan, the former Republican vice presidential candidate whose political credibility may rest with his ability to sway his conservative colleagues, praised the agreement because it will further reduce the federal deficit by $23 billion and contains no new tax increases.
