Millions of people around the nation will be watching Congress tomorrow to see how this body votes on extending unemployment benefits. Many unemployed people need those benefits to take care of basic bills.

"I sure hope that members of Congress have some compassion. I have been looking for work for the past several months. I need a benefit extension to pay for rent and food," said Joe Acosta.

"I don't think the benefits should be extended. I think there are jobs about there and people should take whatever they can get," said Jorge Cruz.

"I believe Congress should extend the benefits. A lot of people are out of work and they need those benefits," said Alex Franco.
