The time for bipartisan politics to end is now. Each day, more American workers are being laid-off or completely fired from their positions. The self-employed are struggling and are at a loss on where to turn.

Senate leaders are meeting throughout the afternoon to work on striking a bipartisan deal, before the days end.

We will update this story as events happen.
