Members of the Congressional Black Caucus spoke on the House floor for the extension of the Federal Unemployment Compensation Act.

With unemployment across the U.S. at 9 percent, Chairman Emanuel Cleaver, II and members of the CBC called for extending jobless benefits beyond the current expiration date of Dec. 31.

“It is virtually impossible to live any kind of productive life without hope,” Cleaver said on the house floor. “And there are millions of Americans who unfortunately cannot place their hope in this body.”
