Jobs bill survives late Senate debate (access required)

Despite strong objections from Democrats and some Republicans, the Senate leadership Tuesday evening pushed ahead to debate the jobs bill, a maneuver that moves the business-tax-cutting legislation closer to passage.

Having cleared the debate, the bill now goes to the full Senate for a formal “aye” or “nay” vote, which is expected on Wednesday, Feb. 16.

Whether the measure has sufficient support to pass — it needs only 16 votes — is uncertain.
