Not everyone is happy about the compromise bill that will raise the debt ceiling. Democrat Representative Emanuel Cleaver of Kansas City had strong words about it over the weekend, calling it a "sugar coated Satan sandwich."
Cleaver said the bill is not a compromise because democrats didn't get anything they wanted except for an end to the stand-off.
"If I were a Republican I would be dancing in the streets," he said. "I don't have any idea what the Republicans wanted that they didn't get."
Not all Republicans agree though. Missouri Representative Vicky Hartzler, affiliated with the tea party, was critical of previous compromise bills. And on Monday afternoon she was still undecided on the bill.
Missouri Senator Roy Blunt on the other hand supports it.
"When you've got a divided government, no one is gong to be totally happy with the final conclusion," he said. "And for opposite reasons than the President, I'm not totally happy with this deal either, but it's necessary to go forward."
Blunt says at least now the nation is having discussions about our debt and our spending.
Congressman Sam Graves agrees, saying we can't keep kicking trillions dollars of debt down the road. He says Republicans held together to demand that spending gets reduced.
But Senator Claire McCaskill went on the national news over the weekend saying this isn't just a political fight, it's a fight over basic values.
"They have voted to keep giving taxpayer checks to big oil while they voted to convert the medicare system to vouchers. Now, that doesn't compute for us," she said.
But she will vote for the bill because she says even though there are things in this compromise she doesn't like, Medicare and Social Security were protected from the extremists.
