The Republican leader in the Senate says President Barack Obama is trying to 'politicize' financial reform.

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says senators ought to go back to the drawing board and try to fix the bill. That's similar to the GOP message about Obama's healthcare legislation as it headed for Senate passage.

Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia disagrees and says McConnell and other Republicans should offer specifics, not just "broad-brush critiques."

Obama used his media address this weekend to criticize McConnell for opposing a bill Obama contends would help prevent another financial meltdown. Republicans say the bill would make more bailouts possible.

The senators spoke Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."
