Today, the Senate is expected to pass a bill restoring long-term unemployment benefits to nearly 3-million Americans.

Six Republicans have indicated they'll join the Democratic majority to push the measure through.

After the vote the bill faces an uncertain future in the house.

It's opposed by Speaker John Boehner and Republican opponents want to attach several so-called "job creation" measures, like construction of the Keystone Oil Pipeline, before passing it.
