Be skeptical of the bipartisan budget deal, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Wednesday.
Washington's far-right lawmakers may turn the budget agreement reached Tuesday night into the latest vitriolic political fight instead of a long-awaited sign of gridlock clearing up, Cramer said, citing a lack of significant movement in stock futures and the looming election year in 2014.
"I still feel that something must be up with this, because if we really had Washington off the front pages, as these stories would indicate to you, then the futures should be through the roof," Cramer said on "Squawk Box" before the market opened slightly lower. "That's been the major impediment to any great rally."
