Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the Democratic Policy Committee chairman, leaves a news conference after he and other leaders spoke to reporters after the Democratic-led Senate rejected conditions that House Republicans attached to a temporary spending bill, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Sept. 30, 2013.
