US Senate Republicans won't delay stimulus:McConnell

WASHINGTON, Feb 11 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republicans are not planning to try and use procedural maneuvers to delay passage of a proposed $789 billion economic stimulus bill, the party’s leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, said on Wednesday.

McConnell said there was a widespread feeling in the minority party that they “ought to vote and move on.” He spoke after congressional negotiators said they had reached a deal on the massive package of spending and tax cuts to try and rescue the flailing economy.
