Time to Renew Unemployment Insurance
3 Million jobless people and their families are still without Unemployment Insurance because Congress has failed to act.
Email your Rep and Senators – tell them they must extend Emergency Unemployment Compensation NOW.
The Senate passed a bill that would have extended unemployment insurance for the long-term unemployed through May. But, the House refused to bring the bill to a vote. The House leadership has chosen to take action on tax breaks for corporations while rejecting help for the jobless. That's wrong. The House and Senate must both take action to restore Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC). They should make it retroactive to make up the benefits lost since the program was allowed to expire in December.
