Thank you, Mr. President: Disaster Unemployment Benefits Expire Soon
A Rebublican-ledCongress just approved big - and I mean big - tax cuts for the rich, but the working-stiff is told "get a job; if you can!"
The U.S. Labor Department announced the 13-week extension of disaster unemployment benefits approved by President Bush in March will expire June 3. This will affect about 72,000 Louisiana residents who are still receiving the assistance. New Orleans CityBusiness, 05/11/2006
