Benefits for the 99ers?

I just read Mike Thornton's Examiner page article on the latest efforts to get additional benefits for those who have exhausted all of their unemployment insurance benefits to date.  I'm not going to repeat everything that Mike wrote in his Examiner article , but, with so many people rapidly exhausting unemployment benefits, this is a positive step.  As Mike mentions, however, with the Republicans in control of the House, this bill would face a steep upward climb.

Time to write your Congressman to support this legislation, particularly important if you are in a Republican or Tea Party District.

Let's all remember that there is strength in unity!
