Senate Democrats won a squeaker of a victory in a procedural vote aimed at extending unemployment benefits
Senate Democrats won a squeaker of a victory in a procedural vote aimed at extending unemployment benefits for millions of Americans on Tuesday, as President Barack Obama was preparing to complain that Republicans in the House of Representatives plan to block the measure.

The legislative proposal would continue federal jobless benefits for an extra three months, at a cost of $6.4 billion.

The 60-37 Senate vote was an unexpected victory for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who managed to attract the support of six Republicans. He hopes to pass the measure by the end of the week.

Democrats needed 60 'aye' votes to end debate and authorize a final vote. Tuesday's preliminary roll call was delayed a day to allow a dozen senators to return to Washington amid nationwide air traffic chaos caused by an historic cold weather snap.
