Tell Congressional Republicans: Extend Unemployment Insurance

Enough Republicans in the Senate have now signed onto a bipartisan agreement to overcome a filibuster and extend unemployment insurance benefits for millions of Americans who are looking for work. Now, we just need to make sure that this agreement passes the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

Sign the petition: tell congressional Republicans to work with us to restore unemployment benefits to our communities.

TO CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS:

For thousands of families here in Hawaii, and millions of Americans across the country, unemployment insurance benefits have been a lifeline that’s meant the difference between keeping their heads above water or sinking into poverty.

Unemployment insurance also grows our economy -- without extending these benefits, our country could lose 240,000 jobs in 2014.

It’s time for Congress to stand up for our communities, and extend unemployment insurance benefits.
