Why the delay on jobless benefits?

Success - Article sent! close

This is regarding the article in The Washington Post on Sen. Jack Reed's proposal to reinstate the unemployment of millions who were cut off in December. What I think is amazing is that with a snap of their fingers our government is sending or has sent $1 billion to the Ukraine but can't decide to assist its own people struggling to stay afloat. Why is it taking months to negotiate this?
