As millions lose their unemployment benefits, Congress considers extending tax breaks for the wealthy. In many cases, they say that they need to because these are the job creators. I ask, since the tax breaks have been in affect for 10 years, why is unemployment at nearly 10%?

Unemployment benefits boost the economy and create jobs since virtually all of the money is spent by the recipient. Please write or call your Representative (or any of those listed below) asking them to extend Unemployment Benefits immediately. If you choose to write, simply click on the Representatives name and you will be taken to their contact form or you will access their email address.

Do it because it's the right thing to do, keeping in mind the old saying: "There, but for the grace of God, go I".
