Instead, the Senate's top Republican said he is focused on funding the federal government when U.S. lawmakers return next week and will work with President Barack Obama to avert a shutdown, which last paralyzed the government in 2013. On the possibility of tying measures that kill funding of the women's health group to federal spending bills, McConnell told Kentucky TV station WYMT: "We just don’t have the votes to get the outcome that we'd like.
