Obama Pushes GOP On Unemployment Insurance
President Barack Obama lauded the Senate’s advancement of a bill to extend jobless aid on Tuesday as a “very important step” and called on Republicans in both chambers to back the legislation “without obstruction or delay.” “Voting for unemployment insurance helps people and creates jobs and voting against it does not,” Obama said in remarks at the White House. Obama’s remarks came shortly after the Senate voted 60-37 to begin formal debate on the unemployment insurance extension, which would offer a three-month extension of the long-term aid to 1.3 million Americans.
