Senate passes payroll tax-cut extension. Will House follow?

This morning, the Senate has passed the two-month payroll tax holiday extension by a procedural motion called Unanimous Consent. That means senators were able to stay home and didn't have to fly to D.C. to vote.

The session lasted a total of 1 minute and 29 seconds.

The attention now turns to the House, and we are watching to see if an angry Tea Party member comes out an objects, throwing a wrench into this whole process and requiring the House to come back next week to have a full vote with all members.
