Quote of the Day: Armand P.
—Armand P., who has been unemployed for 13 months and recently lost his unemployment benefits, to the Washington Post
More than 1.6 million unemployed workers have now been cut off from emergency unemployment insurance. For many of them, this is their only source of income as they struggle to find work.
Every day that Congress fails to extend unemployment insurance, it becomes harder to reinstate necessary assistance. We cannot give up on the unemployed, and neither should Congress.
