DSCC spokesperson Stewart Boss issued the following statement on the emergency unemployment relief expiring this weekend as Senate Republicans refuse to act:
“The emergency unemployment benefits that more than 30 million jobless Americans rely on to pay for food, housing and other essential bills will expire this weekend simply because Senate Republicans refused to extend it. After a two-week break and days of embarrassing infighting in Washington, Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans took a long weekend off, ignoring the personal financial struggle families across this country face. It’s another stunning failure in a series of self-serving political maneuvers that have made this public health and economic crisis worse, and voters won’t forget it.”
