WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday all Republicans in the chamber will vote no on a potential $3.5 trillion budget bill Democrats are working on.

"There won't be any Republican support for this and hopefully some brave Democrats will stand up and say 'I'm not going to do this' for the country," McConnell said in a Fox News interview, saying that if the vote falls along party lines, Vice President Kamala Harris, a Democrat, would have to act as the tie-breaker. "Every Democrat will own this if it happens."
