Pass a Simple Continuation of Unemployment Benefits!
The House and Senate have reached a deal to temporarily continue unemployment insurance and the payroll tax cut for two months while they continue negotiating the possibility of a year-long package.
We urge you to contact your representative and senators now. Tell them they must pass a clean, year-long continuation of unemployment benefits, the payroll tax cut, and other key low-income provisions.
These provisions were almost allowed to lapse during the holiday season due to brinkmanship on the part of Republican House Leadership. This must not happen again. Struggling families are not bargaining chips!
