So maybe Mon. Feb. 3rd we'll be one step closer to having EUC checks sent out again. The Senate has messed around for a month on this. Assuming the extension passes on Monday then the extension goes to the House, and how long are THEY going to mess around? Another month?

There is no vote Monday. Nothing is scheduled at all. Also the vote will take a few days. There has to be 3 votes in the Senate. The first would be a cloture vote and they need 60, then after a cloture vote there has to be 30 hours of debate and Admendment voting then a 2nd Cloture vote which needs 60 again and if it passes the 2nd cloture vote then they can have the actual vote which they need 51 . This all takes about 3-4 days. Since there is no vote scheduled this week its impossible to know when it will go to the House. And the house is on Break after Feb13th to Feb 26th so unfortunately it may not get to the house until then.

They get 1 break a month to go home and work in there home Districts. Technically they are working at home . But most of what they are doing is campaigning for reelection or fund raising. They get Fridays off most weeks and They also get all of August off. I read somewhere that this year they are working the fewest days ever. What a job.
