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.
Yes but. They can have a cloture vote. Then waive the 30 hours of debate by unanimous consent. Then waive the second cloture vote by unanimous consent, and then have the final vote for passage. So this can all happen pretty quickly.

We keep hearing about the worst case scenario... What's the best case scenario in this current situation?

Today's the first and my rent is due. Can't even begin to think of how the discussion with my landlord is going to go.

The Republicans wouldn't waive the consent last time as they are filibustering this. And they want unlimited amendments so this will take 3-4 days atleast.

As for best case. We know its not on the schedule for Monday so best case is they bring it up Tuesday and it gets a final vote by Friday. Still has to clear 2 more hurdles after that. First J Boehner has to allow it into the House which he said he woudlnt unless it included some things he wanted and then it has to go through the Senate proccess which could take 3 days or it can take 30 days . we just dont know. Then you also need the states to restatrt up the whole payment process which could take 1-2 weeks. so best case is about 3 weeks until money starts to go back out.

Top CEO's yesterday told the GOP'S if don't pass the bill, their butt is out the congress, Walmart spokeperson said if this bill is not pass, the GOP donations and money is going to be cut off. Watch what happen, The GOP'S is going to pass it. Big Business are losing billions of dollars, when you effect their money, they take it personal. You will see the bill pass, Also you will see Wall Street and Bankers stepping in to put the GOP'S in their place.
