U.S. Senate Democratic leader says senators revulsed by spending bill

WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday that an “overwhelming number” of Democratic senators do not support the stopgap government spending bill proposed in the House of Representatives, but stopped short of saying whether Democrats would vote against it.

“We don’t know whether the House will send us this bill, but the revulsion towards that bill was broad and strong,” Schumer told reporters. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Writing by Makini Brice; Editing by Doina Chiacu)
