Unemployment Benefits and Cobra Health insurance were temporarily extended!
"We have a responsibility to make sure out-of-work Americans can still access the vital safety-net programs they need to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table while Congress works to pass a longer-term solution," said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus(D-Montana)
The measure also extends the COBRA Health Insurance program . This will allow unemployed people to continue to receive the health insurance they had received from a former employer.
