But McConnell said the price of being in the majority is having to take bad votes, adding that the fundamental problem with the Senate is that Democrats arenít willing to do so.

After the dispute and a rare, lengthy floor debate over the Senateís dysfunction from Members of both parties, Reid suggested that the Senate return Tuesday for a final vote on the underlying Chinese currency legislation, as well as votes on the presidentís jobs bill and pending free-trade agreements.

Senate Democratic leaders are scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden at 10:25 a.m. Friday in the Oval Office.
