Boxer Statement on Republican’s Vote to Block Extension of Unemployment Insurance

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) spoke on the floor today immediately after Senate Republicans voted to block the extension of emergency unemployment insurance to 1.4 million Americans and 250,000 Californians.

"I have to say what I think is going on. They don't want to extend unemployment compensation for the long-term unemployed."
