Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks erased gains in the final half hour of trading after the Senate rejected a pair of partisan proposals to replace $85 billion in automatic spending cuts scheduled to start tomorrow.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index closed down 0.1 percent at 1,514.56 at 4 p.m. in New York after rising as much as 0.6 percent earlier.
