Durbin Discusses Unemployment Benefits

Lawmakers in Washington DC are debating plans from the White House to infuse trillions more dollars into the economy and back infrastructure spending across the United States.


Illinois Senator Dick Durbin says Democrats and Republicans both want the same thing. But they are seeking different ways of achieving it and he says pulling back support for people who have lost their jobs won’t help them return to jobs they might not be able to afford.



A number of states are ending participation in the federal unemployment benefits program in the hopes of getting people back to work, but Illinois is not one of them.
