Hearing on long term unemployment not well attended by elected representatives

I’m told there was a special on soup today in the cafeteria.  Too bad the 4.6 million folks who have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks couldn’t partake. Only Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) attended the entire hearing. Sen. Chris Murphy  (D-CT), and representatives John Delaney (D-Md.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) ultimately showed up. Out of the 19 member Joint Economic Committee, just 4 could be bothered.
