In an exclusive interview with the Peak, national tea party hero and Colorado Senate Republican nominee Ken Buck ripped the budget deal struck by Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama, saying the GOP fell well short of the "promise to the American people we'd cut $100 million from the budget…"  

When asked during a real-time interview on the social networking site Twitter whether he would vote for the budget measure, Buck answered simply: "No".  

The interview is still in progress on Twitter. To follow the interview see our previous post for instructions for the Twitter-illiterate. Our Twitter account is @copeakpolitics and you can use the hashtag #CPP to see the live feed.
