FILE - This June 3 2014 file photo shows Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Senate’s top Democrat has yanked a $180 billion spending measure from the floor after the chamber’s top Republican protested a plan that would have denied Republicans the chance to more easily win changes to the measure. Majority Leader Harry Reid pulled the measure after McConnell thwarted a move to require a supermajority 60-vote threshold for adoption of amendments to the measure. (AP Photo/J.
