Today in the Senate, they passed (by unanimous consent) the defense authorization bill
that Republicans held up over objections to repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell just two short weeks ago
; they passed by a voice vote the 9/11 First Responders Health bill
that had been the subject of so much drama and debate; and they passed by a 71-26 vote the START nuclear treaty with Russia
despite Republican objections to that as well.
And, for good measure, they are currently voting to confirm Mary Helen Murguia to be a judge in the Ninth Circuit.Update:
At 3:40, they confirmed Murguia.
