Rep. Schiff – House Must Take Up Unemployment Insurance As Soon As Possible

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement after the Senate broke the filibuster on legislation to extend long-term unemployment insurance for 1.3 million Americans and 222,000 Californians who lost their jobless benefits:

"It's unconscionable that long-term unemployment insurance has not been extended. The millions who are unemployed are looking for work, not a handout. Speaker Boehner has the power to bring up the bill that will be passed by the Senate with bipartisan support for a vote on the House Floor immediately – he should do so without delay.

"This is the number one issue for the House as we return this week, and it's my hope that the House Majority will open its eyes to the plight of millions of families throughout the country."
