Senate Passes Small-Business Aid Bill, 61-38



The Senate passed, by a vote of 61 to 38, a long-stalled measure to aid small businesses with tax breaks and expanded credit, a victory for President Obama after the bill was stalled for months by Republican opposition. The House of Representatives has already passed a similar bill and is expected to quickly approve the Senate's version.

If you're white, heterosexual male, speak English, and have an occupational skill then you don't qualify, sorry.
