WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he does not think the Republican-led Senate can reach a budget agreement with the Democrat-dominated House of Representatives this year.

“I can’t imagine that we could reach an agreement on a budget with this particular House of Representatives,” he said, adding that a spending deal put in place last year would continue to guide the government this year.
