That’s right, millions of families will find their income cut off by by midnight tonight if this Congress doesn't act today to extend unemployment benefits. The impact of losing that income will be felt by those families, but will also have ripple effect throughout our economy, through the holidays, for the rest of the year, and might imperil the opportunity for a recovery.
Join other ADA activists in signing the petition to urge Congress to extend benefits NOW. With 5 applicants for every job opening, the recession still lingers for millions. Sustaining them through unemployment benefits is the reason the program was created – that’s the American way, and that’s why American’s for Democratic Action is fighting to extend these benefits now! Won’t you join us – sign the petition, share it, and help us mobilize people to make sure Congress gets this done.
