WASHINGTON (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 toward that bill was broad and strong,” Schumer told reporters.

1. Why would they NOT stop it?

There should be no question if it is that repulsive.
