Unemployment benefits expired for 1.3 million long-term jobless workers on Dec. 28, with millions more imperiled by the Senate’s inability to pass an extension for emergency unemployment insurance on Tuesday.

After days of backdoor negotiations, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) brought two measures to a vote Tuesday evening, hoping enough moderate Republicans would join Democrats and lend support to one of two motions aimed at extending or modifying unemployment compensation.

The first proposal, which would have extended unemployment insurance for another 11 months, failed 52 to 48. The second, aimed at extending benefits for an additional three months, had 55 votes in favor and 45 against but failed to meet the 60-vote minimum required to pass.

Every vote cast against extending emergency unemployment insurance belonged to a Republican senator. Below you'll find the contact information for each senator who voted no on the measure, excluding Reid, who voted against it for procedural reasons:
