Tell your member of Congress: Don't cut emergency unemployment benefits
Republican and Democratic negotiators reached a budget deal late Tuesday. A vote in both houses is expected before Congress adjourns Friday for the holidays.
Not part of the deal: an extension of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program.
Consequences? As of Dec. 28, 1.35 million out-of-work people will receive no more compensation checks.
Use the form below email the petition from Daily Kos and The Nation to your member of the House of Representatives: Don't leave town without extending emergency unemployment insurance.
