CALL TO ACTION: Unemployment Extensions

Congress is debating and dueling in its usual way, holding innocent Americans hostage in the process. I am speaking of the current Unemployment Extension debates. Bills have struggled their way through the Senate and House, and opinions are split over how much longer to extend deadlines for the federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC)– two months or one year. If our leaders cannot come to agreement soon, the length of time will not matter– people will exhaust their benefits.

This is a call to action: spread the word to put the pressure on your senators and representatives to put bipartisan political bickering aside for once and get the job done. Our economy and people’s livelihoods are at stake!
