House Dems Step Up To Stop Unemployment Insurance Expiration

levin_sandyThey’re drawing a line in the sand against the “heartless’” Scrooges:

Rep. Sandy Levin (D-Mich.), the House Ways and Means Committee ranking member, said Tuesday that he is determined to see a yearlong extension passed before the benefits expire on Dec. 29.

Levin said he would refuse to accept a reduction in the number of weeks or any other trade-off as part of an extension.

“I think it’s heartless to talk about a further reduction,” he said.
