Looks like it. But no deals between the sides.

Default Congress on leave again until Thursday 2/6

Then they are "hoping" for a vote. Still have to get 60 votes, they are talking the pension smoothing, but also not allowing millionaires to be able to collect benefits... Staying positive!

Definitely can't get excited at all with what we've seen thus far. But today's unanimous procedural vote shows a glimmer of hope.

unfortunately, not really..just showed that no one was going to vote for the non paid bill because there was no way of passing it..so they unanimously voted to get rid of it and are now going to vote on thursday for the new bill

I am calling all the unemployed people to not ever vote for any Republicans in the coming elections again. They have been playing with our lives and have no sympathy for the needy. I was also on unemployment in 2008 and boy the Republicans were brutal back then and they are the same now. Since 2008 and have vowed not to ever vote for any Republicans ever again with no exceptions. Even if you are a Republican, you don't deserve this and look how they are treating you. Please show your voice at the polls and kick out as many Republicans as you can. If 1.6 millions of us who are unemployed go to the poll in the up coming elections, the Republicans will not have a chance. Don't just do the talk, bring your ass to the poll, even if you're sick. No more excuses.
