On Wednesday, Senate leaders announced they have come to an agreement on a plan but only for a short-term deal.
After 16 days of gridlock it appears consensus has been reached at least in the Senate.
The deal will fund the government until Jan. 15, raise the debt limit until Feb. 7, set up budget negotiations between the house and senate in the hopes of reaching a long-term deal and strengthen verification measures for those seeking federal subsidies under Obamacare.
But the compromise has Utah's two republican senators at odds.
Sen. Mike Lee, widely credited for leading the defunding Obamacare fight which ultimately shutdown the government, said he will not support the latest deal to open it.
A spokesperson tells ABC 4 Utah’s Kim Johnson, "he would not support a spending bill that funds Obamacare because it is not ready to implement, is already harming the American people, and is being unfairly implemented by the president. This bill will fund the president's health care law and therefore he will not support it."
Sen. Orrin Hatch said he will be supporting the bill because it'll prevent an economy-shaking default. But he also appears to be taking a strong jab at Lee's hard line tactics.
“Too many were lead to believe that we could accomplish something that was never possible mainly defunding Obamacare through a government shutdown, my gosh that is the President’s signature program and they weren't going to give in no matter what happened,” he said. “If you had any experience in here at all you would know that can't be successful.”
