"The president indicated he wanted this to be about a bipartisan proposal. I must say that, surely, privately, he's embarrassed about the product that came out of the House. The only bipartisanship was the opposition to it, all of the Republicans and a number of Democrats," McConnell said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"I can't believe that the president isn't embarrassed about the products that have been produced so far," McConnell added later in the interview.

McConnell called for a smaller stimulus without earmarks, focusing on tax relief and federal help for homeowners.
