Senate Passes Bill That Would Extend Unemployment Benefits
"WASHINGTON (Bloomberg News) The Senate on Wednesday approved a $138 billion measure that would extend unemployment benefits and provide additional aid to states in lawmakers' second major effort this year to help the economy.
"The vote was 62 to 36. Six Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the bill; the only Democrat to oppose it was Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska.
"The legislation, which now goes to the House, would also extend dozens of expiring tax cuts and head off cuts in Medicare reimbursements to doctors.
"President Obama said in a statement, I am grateful to senators in both parties who took one more step forward today in getting our nation back on a solid economic footing."
