Senators, stop delaying unemployment benefits, now

    1. Petition by

      Fargo, ND

As you may very well already be aware of, recently, Senators Kyl and Hatch delayed a vote on a bill that would have extended unemployment benefits for those whose benefits have been depleted.  With unemployment at its highest in decades and rising monthly, their actions are an affront to American workers; and an economic attack. The bill has support in the House, and the President has said he will sign it, but, these senators blocked it.  They should be ashamed.  Please, tell both Senators to step aside so needy people can receive their payments.

      I have been unemployed for an entire year and look for jobs everyday. The competition for jobs is fierce here. I am single and have no other income, and my unemployment benefits are quickly coming to an end.
