It was the tax cut that nobody noticed when Congress enacted it a year ago. Now the question is, can anyone live without it?
While the loss of the tax cut would affect the most people, an estimated 160 million households, the loss of unemployment benefits would cause the most hardship for an estimated 4 million to 5 million households that depend on the payments for such basic needs as food and housing, he said.
