Leading economists have told us recently that the economy is showing signs of recovery. Meanwhile, about 9 million Americans are out of work and many have or will have exhausted their unemployment benefits by the end of this month.
On Tuesday October 27th (that's tomorrow), the US Senate will finally vote on a bill to extend unemployment benefits for another 14 weeks. In these trying times, those less fortunate then us, who are about to lose their only lifeline, wait and pray for salvation. Many of us in the GPO community surely know of a friend or relative in such dire circumstances. A call to arms is in order.
Call, write, fax and email your representatives in Congress to vote "Yes" on this important legislation. It will make a big difference for them and their dependents to know that their fellow Americans are still compassionate and care about each other.
