Jobless Benfits set to expire

Yeah, sucks doesn’t it.

I have some scary news. Millions of America’s unemployed job-seekers will be cut off from federal jobless benefits starting Nov. 30 unless Congress takes urgent action to renew and extend those benefits through 2011.

For administrative reasons, states actually need to shut down their extended unemployment programs in advance of the federal government’s Nov. 30 cut-off—which means some people will be spending Thanksgiving without food on the table unless Congress acts soon (and they’re only in town for a few days).

I just signed an emergency petition. Can you add your name, too? Just click here:
