Senator Reed on unemployment extension

The Senate delayed a vote until today on extending unemployment benefits because snow delayed many senators' flights back to Washington.  RI's Senator Jack Reed says people on long term unemployment haven't given up their job search.  They are looking because they desperately need work.  Republicans including Alabama's Jeff Sessions agree they need continued unemployment checks, they just want Democrats to cut something out of the budget to pay for them.
