UI Benefits Extension in US / Obama to speak on Tuesday

President Barack Obama will ratchet up his administration\’s push for an extension of emergency unemployment benefits on Tuesday with an event at the White House attended by people whose benefits have expired.

Obama, who is on vacation in Hawaii, and his advisers have been pressing Congress to extend the federal aid to help out-of-work Americans who are searching for jobs and avoid damage to the economy.

“The president will talk about the toll that allowing unemployment benefits to expire has had on 1.3 million Americans, and he’ll warn of the negative consequences for the broader American economy if Congress fails to act quickly on this urgent priority,” the White House said in a statement.
