Bipartisan Senate bargainers ended a long-running election-season standoff and struck a compromise renewing expired jobless benefits for five months for more than 2 million Americans who have been out of work the longest, the lawmakers said Thursday.
Senate Democrats and Republicans both say they want to renew benefits for the long-term unemployed, but in their newest proposals the two sides are still far apart on details such as how to pay for an extension and how long it should last.
Three years after an assassination attempt on then-Rep. Gabrielle Gifford brought members of Congress together, fewer lawmakers crossed the aisle Tuesday night, leaving the chamber once again a partisan seesaw.
As President Obama rang in 2014 in Hawaii, the director of his National Economic Council said Wednesday there would be "no better New Year's resolution for Congress" than to make its first legislative priority restoring emergency unemployment benefits for the estimated 1.3 million people who were cut off Dec. 28.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Shelley Berkley and Republican Sen. Dean Heller have easily brushed aside a slate of unknown challengers to win their respective Senate primaries.
Republicans on Tuesday filibustered Democrats' latest election-year effort to stoke the "war on women" issue, dooming a bill that would have opened up far more avenues for women to sue businesses when they suspect pay discrimination.
The Senate on Wednesday rejected every single budget being offered this year, leaving the chamber — and therefore the federal government — without a plan to address Medicare, Social Security and the other major entitlement programs that are driving deficits and debt.
While some Democrats have made it clear that they would rather not be seen with President Obama on the campaign trail this fall, likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney doesn't appear to face the same problem.
Proposed bipartisan legislation that would stop Congress from getting paid if they fail to pass a budget on time is winning fans on and off Capitol Hill.
Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., told a KSNV-TV interviewer on Friday: "What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots."
