Budget Dispute Deepens Rift Within GOP

Senate Republicans "are locked in a widening internal dispute over future budget negotiations, splitting along generational and ideological lines on the party's approach to the central issue that drove the conservative surge in the Obama era: how to deal with the federal debt," the New York Times reports.

"It was the Old Guard versus the Tea Party, but with real ramifications, as Congress careens toward another debt limit and spending crisis this fall with seemingly no one at the steering wheel. The newer members say negotiations should go forward only with a binding precondition that a budget deal cannot raise the government's statutory borrowing limit."
