I couldn't believe that Congress would not pass an extension of unemployment benefits for those out of work more than 6 months. How heartless is that?
Maybe the infamous members of Congress who voted 'no' should be sentenced to live on unemployment benefits for the remainder of their terms. I wonder if any of them could make it on those benefits? I hope people also remember who they are on election day.
I know that we're in a tough economy, but we should do better than always cutting funds and services for the most vulnerable.
