My husband lost his job it took him almost a year to find another. We were without medical insurance and had to decide whether to buy food or medicine . I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus and a child with special needs . My husband recently lost his job again. It devastates me to know we will once again struggle to make the same decisions. My husband is a hard worker and its a shame that in This economy our government will turn their backs on those honest good people down on their luck. Please extend unemployment benefits.
