President Barack Obama pauses while speaking about benefits for the unemployed, Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, in the East Room at the White House in Washington. The president applauded a Senate vote advancing legislation to renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed as an important step. The Senate voted 60-37 Tuesday to clear the bill's first hurdle. But Republicans who voted to move ahead still want concessions that will have to be worked out before final passage. The Republican-controlled House would also have to vote for it. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
