The Senate is considering the motion to proceed to S. 2343, the student loan bill.  The Senate is also considering the following nominations: Jacqueline H. Nguyen, of California, to be United States circuit judge for the Ninth Circuit; Kristine Gerhard Baker, of Arkansas, to be United States district judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas; and John Z. Lee, of Illinois, to be United States district judge for the Northern District of Illinois.  Republican senators continue to focus on creating jobs, lowering the deficit, reducing gas prices, and replacing the Democrats' health care bill with reforms that will actually lower costs.
