Millions of people are about to lose their unemployment insurance. Starting Feb. 28, people will not be able to file for federal unemployment benefits or COBRA (health insurance subsidy). By March, 1.2 million workers will be forced to survive one way or another. By June, that number will blossom to nearly 5 million Americans.
