>>> in washington today a vote to extend long term unemployment benefits went down in the senate as the chamber descended into partisan argument. instead the vote was 55-45. negotiations to find a compromise will go on, but that's little comfort to more than a million people who were cut off from benefits right at the beginning of the year. tonight
