The U.S. leads the pack in the percentage of older adults who have trouble paying their medical bills.
(Timonium, MD) - Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) on Monday will be joined by jobless Marylanders in urging House leaders to allow a vote to extend emergency unemployment insurance. Constituents will share their stories at the event, which marks the local launch of the national "Faces of the Unemployed" project to highlight the true impact unemployment is having on families across the country.
Nearly 33,900 Marylanders have lost their unemployment benefits since the program's expiration on December 28. A 5-month extension passed the U.S. Senate in April but, to date, House Republicans have blocked consideration of 11 bills to restore this vital safety net.
