U.S. Congress to Begin 2014 With Jobless Benefits Battle - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

The U.S. Congress begins what promises to be another highly combative year with a showdown over a White House-backed bid to renew unemployment benefits for 1.3 million Americans. The battle will kick off a 2014 drive by President Barack Obama and fellow Democrats to stem a growing gap between rich and poor. The Democrat-led Senate plans to escalate the fight in coming weeks by bringing up for a vote a bill to increase the federal minimum wage, which has stood at $7.25 an hour since July 2009
