"I want to see the details. But from what I know, it sounds like John Boehner got a good deal. Probably not good enough for me to support it, but a good deal nonetheless," Pence told ABC's Christiane Amanpour Sunday on "This Week."

Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the ranking member of the House Budget committee, told Amanpour that he wanted to know the details of the bill before committing his vote.

"They're still sifting through the areas where they are going to make cuts. You can't find anybody today, actually, who knows exactly what cuts we're proposing until probably the end of the day today, maybe early next week. So I'm going to reserve judgment," Van Hollen, D-Maryland, said.

However, when all is said and done, it looks like the deal will ultimately pass, bringing an end to the great budget war of 2011… and providing a sign of what lies ahead in battles over the 2012 budget and increasing the debt ceiling later this year.
