Sign and send a petition to your member of Congress: Restore unemployment benefits now
Because Congress failed to act, 1.3 million unemployed Americans just lost their already meager benefits this weekend.
House Republicans refused to include unemployment in the federal budget, even though the long-term unemployment rate is double what it has been historically when federal emergency benefits were allowed to lapse.
E-mail your member of Congress now, and demand that they restore benefits to the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program.
