Tuesday's live video events

There may be four shopping days left until Christmas, but Senate lawmakers won't have time to shop today, as they continue debating the issues of the day on Capitol Hill.  CNN.com Live will have that debate and more throughout the day.

Today's programming highlights...

9:30 am ET - Senate in session - Senate lawmakers extend their lame-duck session another day to take up the New START accord, health care legislation benefiting 9/11 first responders and government spending.

9:30 am ET - Santa and friends return to Wall Street - Santa Claus apparently had so much fun during yesterday's closing bell that he's coming back for this morning's opening bell!  He's bringing his friends from around the world to assist the CEO of Rosetta Stone in ringing the opening bell.

10:30 am ET - Sen. Arlen Specter says farewell - He's represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate for 30 years.  Now, after losing his primary race earlier this year, Sen. Arlen Specter is preparing to call it a day.  He will deliver his final floor speech to Senate colleagues this morning.

11:00 am ET - Census report briefing - Remember those Census forms you got in the mail earlier this year?  Today, you'll find out what the Census Bureau did with them.  Specifically, the Census Bureau will announce the 2010 U.S. population, as well as Congressional re-apportionments.

CNN.com Live is your home for breaking news as it happens.

    Why is CNN so quiet on this 9/11 bill? The fact that Senator Jon Kyl (R) is willing to block it is amazing. Appearantly, he is more loyal to the American Chamber of Commerce than the American Heros of 9/11. And from CNN's lack of coverage, I would assume that's thier stance as well. When exactly did the American press become the voice of corporate desire?

    It is not like this is a new bill, Senator Kyl saying they need more time, the Republican problem is they need too much time to pass anything. They have had plenty of time, they are being paid to work, just like the rest of us. If we don't perform, we are gone, well Senator Kyle and buddies I don't care if you have to work Christmas Day, it is your own fault, so you will miss all the country club parties but we don't care, if you did your job all year this would not b e a problem. This bill should have been passed a long time ago. Need I say more.

    I also want to say all the news stations should spend more time on all these failures to do what is right instead of doing so much reporting on Palin who does not have a voice on anything, the last I heard she quit her job and then lost running for another one. In other words a loser. Let Fox have her as they are not a news station. I am soooo Palined out, she is not NEWS.
