WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said a $21 billion Democratic measure enriching health care, education and job-training benefits for veterans seemed headed for defeat Thursday, and he blamed Republicans.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell countered that Democrats were miring the bill in election-year politics.

This week, Republicans tried amending the veterans’ measure to make it less expensive and to add new penalties against Iran for its nuclear program. President Barack Obama strongly opposes that step, saying international talks on Iran’s nuclear program must be given more time.
