Washington, D.C. – “With job losses hitting a five year high and with over 760,000 American jobs having been lost this year, the American worker is in need of immediate and urgent assistance. The American worker is the centerpiece of our nation’s economy and in order to secure both our nation’s immediate and long-term economic productivity it is essential that we secure the fates of working Americans.
“By voting to extend the unemployment benefits of our nation’s displaced workers, I am seeking to help those most in need. When our economy underperforms, it is working Americans who bear the heaviest burdens. By voting in support of this legislation, I am voting to help working families and to revive our sagging economy.”
