Seven of nine of Colorado's members of Congress voted to approve a budget compromise, with GOP Reps. Cory Gardner and Mike Coffman opposing the deal that reforms defense spending cuts and military pensions.

Coffman said he didn't like that the budget restored some money to defense spending.

"I think we should stay with the budget cuts," he said. "We need to prioritize spending within those cuts."

Gardner called the bill too modest.

"Budget caps, while not perfect ... brought about much-needed reductions of out-of-control Washington spending," he said.

Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet supported the resolution Wednesday.
