Left in the cold

I am a 61 year old woman that has worked all my life, and have now been unemployed for 6 months. Congress chose to go on Christmas vacation without renewing unemployment benefits.

They say they will vote on it in January......so what are we to tell our landlords? What are we to feed our children with? Are we supposed to say wait, wait 2 weeks until I feed you, house you? Isn't it more work to deal with this retroactively? Unemployment is still very high, there are few jobs. Wake up, we are talking about the human condition, nominations and immigration can wait, it is high time you deal with the priorities...the human condition at home.

Renew Unemployment Benefits, the money goes back into the economy.
