Washington, July 25 (TIWN) US Congressional Democrats have blamed the Republicans for their "months-long disarray and delay" as the enhanced federal unemployment benefits are set to expire in a few days.

"This weekend, millions of Americans will lose their Unemployment Insurance, will be at risk of being evicted from their homes, and could be laid off by state and local government, and there is only one reason: Republicans have been dithering for months while America's crisis deepens," House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said in a joint statement on Friday.

"We had expected to be working throughout this weekend to find common ground on the next COVID response package. It is simply unacceptable that Republicans have had this entire time to reach consensus among themselves and continue to flail," the statement said.
