Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, meets with reporters on Capitol Hill Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, after the Senate passed legislation to extend Social Security payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for just two months, setting the stage for another fight in February. The action also extends long-term unemployment benefits for another two months and requires President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline within 60 days unless he declares the project would not serve the national interest.
