McConnell protested Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's plan to allow votes on amendments from both parties, saying it was "ridiculous" to do so in a way that McConnell said would favor Democrats, who control the chamber.
It was unclear whether the two sides would be able to reach agreement on any approach to passing an unemployment compensation bill this week, before the Senate goes on recess next week for the Martin Luther King holiday.
