Lawmakers who seem to only care about the super-rich made sure Congress left town for Thanksgiving without taking action to maintain emergency jobless benefits. Now, 800,000 long-term job seekers will lose their benefits on Nov. 30. And the total is set to rise to 2 million in December.

Check out our unemployment clock, and share it with your friends.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
