WASHINGTON - Unemployment benefits to approximately jobless 200,000 Americans saw their unemployment insurance end Monday, April 5.
The benefits came to an end -- at least temporarily -- as a result of "gridlock" on Capital Hill, followed by a congressional break through April 12, 2010. Democrats and Republicans are engaged in a debate over whether to approve an extension when Congress returns from its break.
