Unemployment Benefits End for Over 1.3 Million Saturday

Share this post

Unemployment benefits expire tomorrow for Americans who've been out of work for more than six months. ABC News reports during a five minute session of the House Thursday, Democratic whip Steny Hoyer complained Republicans left town, allowing benefits to expire for more than 1-point-3 million people, calling it a moral outrage and another congressionally-inflicted blow to our economy.  Democrats argue congress has always extended unemployment benefits, when so many people have been out of work for so long. Republicans may be open to a retroactive extension, but only if it's coupled with cuts elsewhere in the budget.
