Tax Bill Passed by Congress Broadens Jobless Program

the economic package that cleared congress on friday includes changes to the nation's unemployment-insurance program aimed at helping more americans stay in jobs and others go back to work.

those changes, backed by president barack obama and some capitol hill republicans, effectively broaden the base of workers who would get help. the provisions were tucked into a $150 billion bill that will extend through december a cut in workers' payroll taxes to 4.2% from 6.2%, prevent a steep drop in doctors' medicare compensation and renew expiring unemployment benefits.
