WASHINGTON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Rhetoric is heating up on Capitol Hill as lawmakers work on a budget deal for the rest of this fiscal year.
They're under a deadline to reach an agreement next week or face a government shutdown.
House Republicans and Senate Democrats reportedly reached a tentative deal to cut about $33 billion, though House Speaker John Boehner nothing's set in stone.
On Thursday he criticized Senate leaders of dragging their feet.
This came as Tea Party activists rallied near Congress, urging House Republicans to fight for bigger spending cuts.
