King said he is not satisfied with the House budget deal, but he said is was preferable to sequestration, which he said would have made arbitrary cuts in programs such as homeland security.
"The most important thing is we have a budget," King said.His remarks put King in the government-friendly camp of the Republican party. He said safety and security are the two biggest responsibilities of government, and he lambasted media and others who second guess the split-second decisions that a trooper must make to protect lives.
