Sen. Patty Murray enjoyed the Daily Show segment on the budget deal

Posted By on Fri, Dec 13, 2013 at 4:47 PM

Congress announced a breakthrough this week with a possible compromise on the federal budget, led by Rep. Paul Ryan and Washington’s Sen. Patty Murray. The Daily Show reacted with a segment in which Jon Stewart called Murray and Ryan a “life-size bar graph of the fiscal distance between the parties,” and Murray apparently found it pretty funny. (Watch the segment here.)

This reaction photo posted to her official Twitter account today is perfect:

Murray and Ryan — chairs of the Senate Budget Committee and House Budget Committee, respectively — also sat down together to discuss the plan with Meet the Press. The extended interview will air Sunday, but here are some early excerpts.
