NBC Montana caught up with the Senator Saturday as he traveled to Missoula to take part in a ceremony honoring a deceased Vietnam Veteran.
Tester said at the moment, both sides are deadlocked. When we asked him who was to blame, he said he wasn't interested in pointing fingers.
"The fact is that every time you point a finger, there's three pointing back at yourself,” said Tester. “We need to work together. There's good people on both sides of the isle that want to work together, and I think in the end, that's exactly what will happen.”
Tester said he believes a deal will be reached, but not until the last minute.
