Unemployment benefits have expired for hundreds-of-thousands of Americans.

Congress had a chance to extend the benefits for people out of work for more than six months Tuesday, but republicans blocked the effort.

If the measure is not renewed by the Lame Duck Congress, two million Americans will lose their unemployment insurance by the end of the year.
