The Daily Quote

“Today, six Republicans crossed party lines to vote with Democrats to open debate. For the [emergency unemployment insurance extension] bill to end up on President Barack Obama's desk, as he wishes, both the Senate and the House would still have to pass it… ‘The message here that I was hoping to bring out first day back, first full day back from our recess was maybe Republicans and Democrats can actually work together to get good things done,’ said [Senator Dean] Heller [R-NV]. Heller said he thinks the bill will pass the Senate… Heller said the House should vote on the bill. ‘I truly do believe that reasonable people can come together, we can have a discussion on this,' said the Senate Republican.”
