Senate Dems Urge 10-Month Extension of Unemployment Benefits

By
Friday, January 22, 2010 at 4:45 pm

With unemployment still hovering in double digits and no real relief in sight, a group of 30 Senate Democrats today is urging party leaders to extend emergency unemployment benefits through the end of 2010 — 10 months longer than current law dictates.

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), the lawmakers argue that shorter extensions might be cheaper, but they leave state budgeters in a state of constant uncertainty.

Short term extensions, while still helpful to families, only add strain to state agencies that must constantly re-tool their computer systems, and at the same time, continue to assist the millions still searching for work. As our economy continues on a path to recovery, we need a robust extension of safety net programs that have provided a lifeline to families since the recession began.

Signing the letter were Democratic Sens. Tom Harkin (Iowa), Bob Casey (Pa.), Jack Reed (R.I.),? Sherrod Brown (Ohio)?, Chris Dodd (Conn.),? Jay Rockefeller (W.Va.),? Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.),? Al Franken (Minn.), Carl Levin (Mich.),? Frank  Lautenberg (N.J.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), ?Roland Burris (Ill.), Arlen Specter (Pa.),? John Kerry (Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.),? Ron Wyden (Ore.), Edward Kaufman (Del.),? Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.),? Patrick Leahy (Vt.),? Robert Menendez (N.J.),? Herb Kohl (Wis.),? Tom Udall (N.M.), Ben Cardin (Md.),? Robert Byrd (W.Va.),? Daniel Akaka (Hawaii),? Jeff Merkley (Ore.),? Barbara Mikulski (Md.),? Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) and Michael Bennet (Colo.), as well as Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.).

Democratic leaders are working on legislation to tackle the continuing problems related to the economic downturn. The package is widely expected to include an extension of unemployment insurance, COBRA health benefits, food stamps and help for states faced with budget crises. They’d hoped to have health care reform out of the way first. Now, that’s looking unlikely.

Not so fast-are they going to extend “benefits” or is this just another time extension on the EUC Law that is currently set to expire the end of February? Yes, we need longer and more Benefit extensions as this jobless recovery continues on…..

well,it's about time someone figured this out.this should have been done long ago.the so called band aid affect does nothing,except make those of us have to worry about when are benefits expire,we have enough to worry about,like trying to find employment.now hopefully this won't take forever to get passed or get passed like the recent one at the very last minute. i thank all in senate for bringing this back into discussion.there are some that do care of are well being in the house.

Fly if you spent the time that you post and sit on the internet and actually went to look for work then perhaps you'd be employed. It's morning noon and night with you on every blog and board related to this issue. If I were the people at DOL I'd be doing an investigation on your work logs and the fact you are still collecting unemployment even though your making money selling feeders. Sounds like income from a business to me.

I don't feel that just extending the deadlines for continuing unemployment will be enough. It's one thing to extend them, but with the current length of time Tiers 2,3,and 4 are, irregardless of having deadlines until 12/2010 won't be of much help if you fall out of the tiers early on. My suggestion would be to standardize Tiers 2,3,and 4 to 20 weeks of benefits each tier. Similar to Tier 1. This would help people who have exhausted their 26-week state employment, as the tiers would all be the same, no “13 weeks here, 6 weeks there” causing grief and frustration. For those already in the tiers, the extra weeks would help alleviate looking over your shoulder about what's coming next. The original idea of the EUC tiers wasn't for long term help, but with what's going on now with unemployment jumping in 43 of the 50 states, another look at the tiers and a more standardized benefit system should be put in place.

I think they are looking at a long term extension, because #1 it takes too much programming for each short term extension and #2 they dont see the employment situation getting any better for awhle.

They should have never let our jobs go oversees.

Nafta wasn't supposed to do what has happened. It was suborned by the corporate interests in this country, so I don't blame Clinton.

The majority of Americans on unemployment were employed at their previous job for 3-5 years. A large percentage from 5-8 years. Many more from 1-3 years. The reason so many are unemployed (15-20 million) is because they have been laid off due to the economy. Many businesses have closed and gone bankrupt, especially in construction and all related industries. Many more have scaled back to skeleton work staffs so as to reduce costs in an attempt to ride out the downturn. These businesses are in trouble as well. At any rate, for every job that opens, there are five or six people to fill it. That means that five out of six unemployed will always be turned away. This is the problem. These arent welfare rolls. They are previously employed Americans, from one year to a lifetime, who now find themselves unemployed and unable to find work because there is none to find. Twenty million unemployed Americans means they have no money to spend in their communities. This means a lack of money moving thru all other businesses, which means more lay offs in those businesses. It is an ugly cycle. So telling people to get a job is easy to say. But the sayer may soon find him or herself without a job. And I can tell you that going out and finding another job like in good times, shows an ignorance of reality. These are extremely lean times. If you have a job, you'd better hang on to it.

You may get good news. As I've said elsewhere here, the only way is up! The jobs will come! I realize it's hard, and it seems like there's no way out, but don't lose HOPE! America has been here before, and we got back on our feet, to be a world power, once more. It'll happen, again, I promise you!

meeeeeee,

Look at it this way, only a third of the stimulus money has been spent. The extension will happen, because it has to. Add to that the fact that a turnaround will take time, in which case another extension is more than just likely after that.

Look at the names above. They're the ONLY ones looking to your best interests. The GOP, it seems, could care less about us all. They're more than comfortable filling their pockets watching you and all these good people below, fail.

I came back from Iraq to watch this happen. It sickens me. I wish there was something I could do. All I can see to do is to tell you not to lose hope, try to stay positive. Help is on the way! DO NOT give in! You folk supported my buddies and myself, to fight. While I can't return the favor monetarily, I can try, emotionally. Keep your chin up! Things will get better! DO NOT LET DESPERATION SET IN! There IS help coming! Stay in the fight! THAT'S a winning strategy!!

The past couple of legislations serving the unemployed had overwhelming support from both parties. For instance the last unemployment extension came out of the Senate at 98 to 1 or something like that. The percentage was similar in the Congress. So I don't see how you can say that caring is a party thing. Granted, an unemployment extension should be an emergency and passed without much haggling. But I've noticed that the Democrats can keep and work on the bill for a week or two, and no-one accuses them of stalling or not caring. Yet if they bring it out and the Republicans (who thus far havent even seen the bill), want to make changes to it, they are immediately said to be stalling and uncaring about the unemployed. What I do find curious about the Republicans is that it is always the Democrats who start the process for the unemployed. I mean when the unemployed contact their reps, both parties hear about it and are then privvy to the need.

I'm not being confrontational about this, but the Republicans stalled the last one for four weeks before passing, at the number you posted. Four weeks. That's playing with people's lives, for political gain (it's nothing new, for either side). They knew what was in the bill, they say they don't, but you can't stay in D.C. as long as they have by being that ignorant.
It's all table tennis, of course, but in this case, the country is in deep trouble, and Republicans don't seem to want us to succeed.
In answer to your last, it was Republican failure that caused the unemployment explosion, to begin with.

When that bill came from the House it was a stripped down spartan…thirteen weeks for States above 8.5%. And nothing else. The Dems took it and worked on it for a week or two, and brought out something completely different. No-one could know what was in it. Especially since no Reps were invited. I'm not being partisan, just stating facts. In my mind I wonder, if the Dems wanted it to hurry thru, why not invite the Reps to the room at the beginning and come out with something bipartisan at the start. As for Reps stalling the bill for four weeks, it doesn't take a whole party to do that. One person can do it.
You said that Reps caused the bad economy. Common sense sense otherwise. You can't create an economy in this serious of a condition in five years. This took one or two decades and several administrations to mature. Jobs leaving the country, lloss of manufacturing, risky mortgage loans and so forth have been going on for decades. And it has finally come to a head. That said, these unemployment extensions have been a life saver for millions. And while they've passed with an overwhelming majority from both parties, I give Democrats the credit. In fact, while I've voted straight party tickets for years, I intend to consider Democrats at the next election simply because of their efforts for the unemployed during this awfull economic downturn.

Hello All, The Bill that would extend Unemployment Benefits was already passed by House and waiting for the Senate. It is House bill H.R. 2847 Title III
It would extend Benefits to June 30, 2010.. However it would extend only for 6 months. We need to write to all Senators and ask them when and if they approve this Bill to approve it for at least 10 months.

Hope this passes. At this point there is no relief in sight. Even worse, with corporate productivity and profits up because the number of employees are down, there is NO incentive or reason to start hiring. The only thing to do, really, is to improve one's skills as much as possible and 'wait it out' …. frustrating.

I feel your pain. Many think we are lazy and just want to keep drawing an unemployment check but what so many fail to understand is that many of us helf good paying jobs and we have leases and mortages and car payments, credit card bills all secured and setup with that good paying job and the jobs that we do find pays less than what we make on unemployment and if we took the cut in pay many of us would not be able to make our paymens and wuld ruin our credit which in turn causes more pain and misfortune in our future. There is more to this than just dollars and sense. I am sure amny just want to sit back and draw a free check but Sir that is not the cas for many of us and we are hurting. If you believe in a god please pray for us. All we want to do is survive and make it out of this with our homes and credit still e

not sure why the people with jobs on here are so angry. It's not like we all quit just to quit and collect free money. I have tried to stay off UI for as long as I can but after eating through my savings looking for a job, I had no choice left.

I would be one happy mofo right now if I had a job. Unfortunately, I can't find a job to save my life right now. Either I am over qualified or there is someone who is more qualified than me.

Look down your nose at the people on Unemployment because you have a job. Karma is a bitch. Lets see you nay sayers turn down money to feed your family when you are out of a job.

I'm trying real hard not to run down the UE. I simply report on where the ongoing extensions are going to come from. Its not clear right now if any are forthcoming. With that being said I don't have any problem if they are extended, I don't advocate against it, but I don't see much in the way of movement either…so as long as you know what might be coming you'll be better prepared. I believe and so do many many others that things will work out in the end. I'm not a touchy-feely type…there are thousands of these stories. You need to see it from a different perspective.

There was a time, not long ago. I was working alot of hours at the best wage I ever had in my life (17/hr). Those $1000/week paychecks were nice. My company was having a record year! I started hearing about unemployment & extentions and came down with “I walk on water” sickness! I caught that “they can work if they want to” mentality. That was 2008. I was laid off January 6, 2009. That certainly cured me of that way of thinking! Today, I don't even have a clue where I am in the tiers! It has really made me regret my attitude throughout 2008. Yes, I admit, I had it coming. Too bad others who are employed cannot see their error in thinking before it gets too late. We are still shedding jobs, who's will be next? This is my public apology for my mentality in 2008!

I have heard that alot. Even from my optimistic brother (who is in the same trade as me, but different company). It's not hard to see it is already getting just a little worse each day. As people begin to fall off the unemployment rolls, I wonder how they will handle the influx in welfare applicants & the high crime that will surely follow. Right now, they are getting off easy by giving us our enemployment benefits – which we worked for and deserve! And, before anyone says it, we also would deserve welfare if need be. We all pay our taxes!

I am in the same boat as everyone here. I've had two companies close down, laid off from the third one and have extensive experience in many areas. I've been looking every day, applying to every kind of job that's out there, even part time, and running into brick walls everywhere I turn. Those employed people don't seem to understand just how difficult it is to find ANYTHING because they already have SOMETHING. I also live in a smaller town which makes it that much more difficult because you are upping the ante against how many applicants are applying for just ONE job. I've been unemployed since Dec 2008 and I just want everyone to keep focused, positive, and don't give up! We are all in this together! We understand all the worrying, the frustration, the rejections, the unknown. It's not humbling standing in the unemployment line when you're used to working. We don't have a choice though. I pray for an end in sight for all of us, to give us the strength to keep going. And for Congress to create jobs, not just SAY they will. There's alot of us out there WILLING to work, but less companies willing to HIRE. I've fallen into the middle cracks in the road. I'm overqualified for entry level, and not qualified by higher educational standards. High School Diploma's are being thrown aside more and more for degrees in place of experience. There's a job waiting for me somewhere, and there's one for all of you too! Just when we think we CAN'T go any further, or take any more, somehow, the spirit inside of us forces us on! Don't let any nay sayer's get to you. It's not worth it. Some day, they might just be in the same boat as all of us, and then they'll know what STRUGGLING REALLY IS! Wish you all the best!

The unemployed need to unite into a group similar to the unions and other organizations. There are millions of unemployed across the nation. Think of the power and clout they would have if they all joined toghether into one big organization. Then Congress would be more apt to listen to them. And they would then get the benefits and extensions they need to keep them a float till they can get work. Get a website going and an organization going. There are some free website designing tools out there that are pretty good. You do not have to be an expert to use one. Use this website for your organization and invite other unemployed to join. You could use donations from unemployed say maybe $5 or $10. dues to keep the organization going. Think, if you have a half a million people joining and they only send in one buck, that is half a million dollars. So small amounts can add up. This would help pay to keep the website up and for other costs such as postage, flyers and etc. Also get someone good at lobbying for you in DC. Then maybe you will see some action. Instead of waiting and worrying about whether or not Congress is going to give you a measly couple of weeks extensions. Lobby to get something better. You could even include a job site on the website.

I noted on Senate.gov something I did not see before & looks hopeful. In the “Active Legislation”, I see “Unemployment Extension, June 30 2010″. It is listed under “Bills That May Recieve Attention This Week” and is dated Feb 01, 2010! I'm sure you all know the links better than me. This might be worthwhile to look into. It is also listed with HR2847. Also, I found this by Google-ing “Senate Calander”!

A new tier? The only place you find that idea is on these cheerleader boards. Just take the 6 months and let it go at that and see what the rest of the year brings. I'm sure the people that have decision making influence read these boards and get the impression you think its all about you and your checks.

Comment posted February 3, 2010 @ 3:00 pm

Senate Democratic leaders are expected to announce the details of a jobs package that will likely include a combination of tax breaks, unemployment benefits and spending.

There seems to be some confusion over the possible extension of EUC benefits which I believe requires clarification.

Currently there are four tiers of EUC benefits; tiers 1, 2, 3 & 4. Tier 4 expires on February 28, 2010. If you are currently receiving tier 4 by that date your EUC benefits will continue until the six weeks extension (Tier 4) expires. However, the proposed additional EUC extension is not a tier 5, but rather an extension of the dead line for the already existing 4 tiers. Consequently, those who are about to exhaust tier 4 of their EUC benefits should contact their senators to lobby for an EUC tier 5 extension. If not, there will be no further extension of EUC benefits beyond tier 4, regardless of the new deadline.

Thanks Al for ttrying to clarify how the Tiers work. I'm still trying to understand…..I'm on Tier 4 and I only have one week left to claim as of today..so that is before Feb 28 which as you said is the expiration…I wonder why mine expired before this date?
“If you are currently receiving tier 4 by that date your EUC benefits will continue until the six weeks extension (Tier 4) expires”
I'm not sure what you mean by this statement…how would this apply to me since my last week to claim is before Feb 28?

Hope is important and their is a possibility for a tier V,so keep the faith and let our reps know that we need an extension in these hard times.Look up “Senate leaders near deal on jobs bill” on msnbc and read the updated details.

I think there is a general misunderstanding among the public regarding people on unemployment. I have worked every day of my life since I was 15 — while attending high school, university and every day since then. I would never take a vacation and when transitioning from one job to another, never took one day off inbetween. So here I am now, unemployed for the first time in my life and there are no jobs. Even when I graduated university in 1989, the economy was bad but jobs were still to be had. I pray every day to find a job; something that will allow me to pay my bills, buy food and move out of parent's house (I had to move back in when I lost my job, at the age of 43). I don't have any dependents but that doesn't make losing your life, as you once knew it, any easier. I grew up with parents who worked every day of their lives, whether sick or not, to give me what I have — a good education. I've applied those same principles but unfortunately, the economy doesn't care about your work ethic. It's all about the bottom line. So my question is: what about those people who have gotten laid off in the latter part of the recession, such as myself? The way Congress is working it now, I only have 6 months of unemployment benefits and then I'm out of luck. How is that fair? I think during an economic crisis rivalling the Great Depression, Congress and the Senate (our government) should mandate a minimum period of unemployment and do away with all these silly and confusing extension deadlines. It is an unequitable system, to say the least. I'm hoping that our government will grant an extension so that I have a bit more time not to sit on my non-lazy butt but to find a job. Please. I've written my senators and representatives but have not received any response. Let's keep on trying. We have no other choice.

Unemployment pays just enough to survive ….I cashed in my 401k and all my stocks before I even thought about filing for UI,had my car reposessed…have no health insurance and count on the UI for now.

When enough people finally crack and start resorting to crime this whole nation is in for trouble let alone very vulnerable to terrorist attacks

I dont whether you own your own business or work for someone but when enough people don't have money to buy food and pay utilities it will affect you also. and I hope you dont end up like us because I dont try to wish bad on anyone nor do I criticize either go back to your own sandbox

OK everyone i have a little news to share..Nancy Pelosis office emailed me 20 minutes ago.. They said the speaker and the senate is aware of our problem and after the jobs bill is passed thye will review what is needed and take action. They said they thank everyone for their views keep emailing and writing though it cant hurt,If the sneators come to the table with hundreds of thousands emails letters etc there will not be a problem passing these new tiers. On the other hand if it does take a while this is what you do. When you last check is claimed and not until you actually claim call or go on line to your family services or like some call it welfare office. I dont think thye call it that anymore but whatever you call go there call or go onine fill out emargency food stamps application. I did it last week for myself when I claimed my last check. Even though i own my owm house it doesnt matter i helped two neighbors and someone who i willnot name that emailed me from the blog to get them and i was just informed by mail today that we were approved for one year unless i get a job. it oges by how many in your family it 300 a month for adults and 200 each child. They also give cash on the first of every month i was told if there is no income at all and help paying all your utilities(neccesaties only) i now know at least my kids will be eatting whiloe lokking for another job and or tier 5 and 6 come thru in two months.As im sure you know trying to sell your house right now is almost impossible i bought mine brand new almost 5 years ago 499,000 and now i couldnt get 300,00 for it so thats what homeowners are delaing with. No matter how beautiful ti is pool 3 car garage they dont care unless you get lucky and have some rich company buy up some houses to make some money , but then they pay half of what you owe so what good is that.So many many people in my area have lost their homes in forclosure and what kills me they just sit there pools turnung green and rotting grasas overgrowing the bank does nothing with them not evenmantain them it disgusting why cant they let the people stay and work something out its better than lettign those properties rot away right?

This is Urgent folks. We only have a few days now before the February 28th deadline to get the Senate to pass a bill to extend unemployment benefits.

Instead of filling out a form on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi website, you can send her an Email at: thegavel@mail.house.gov

Email her the form letter below.

Also send this to your Senators and Governors.

Dear ____________________:

I am writing to urge you to take quick and immediate action on renewing federal unemployment benefit extensions, including the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program and full federal funding of Extended Benefits, as well as the $25 per week Federal Additional Compensation supplement and the 65% 15-month COBRA subsidy.

I am writing to also urge you to take quick and immediate action on creating additional Tiers for the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program.

Americans watched and heard the State of the Union address given by our President. We heard his acknowledgment regarding the jobless citizens in America and felt his empathy for our situation. However, we did not hear a commitment from him to assure us of continued assistance under the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program. We did not hear a commitment from him to ensure that the overwhelming and ever-increasing number of Americans that are currently out of work will be given the lifeline of continued assistance, until such a time when each and every one of your constituents are gainfully employed.

The statistical graphs and measures regarding unemployment only reveal the ones that have not given up. There are many that have already lost hope – in themselves, in the American government and all of it's systems, and in America as a whole. In the President's State of the Union address, he emphatically stated, “We don't quit. I don't quit.” We, the unemployed in America, are praying there is not only truth behind those words but also, action. Immediate action that will sustain the unemployed to be able to maintain basic living necessities and expenses.

Without renewal of federal unemployment benefit extensions and without creation of additional Tiers, the “spirit of determination and optimism, that fundamental decency that has always been at the core of the American people” will deteriorate under the stress and strain from years of struggling and hardship, with no relief in sight.

Re-establish our trust in the government systems; re-instill our faith in the goodness of humanity; assist us in being proud again to be Americans. Pass and/or create the bills necessary to renew federal benefit unemployment extensions and add more Tiers. Our lives and the lives of our children depend on this to survive the current economic crisis.

Thank you,

All of you are losers! Go out an get a job for christs sakes! We are sick of supporting all of you left wingers.The worst thing that happened to this ocuntry is Obama! Hes giving away what Bush and Cheney saved! Our administration gave 1 extension and that was too much! This is just ridiculous. When my daughter told me about this site and all you getting together like an organization I thought are they crazy? And the states should not allow food stamps either, go get a job! And whos the moron that said keep your house or give it back? The banks need their properties give them back whats theirs! And welfare should be taken away all together. Who ever heard of such a thing. You either sink or float in this world the strong survive, the weak have to die.But thats just my opinion.

Hey Marcus, I believe you are the loser for calling everyone else losers. Do you understand that there are so so many illegal immigrants working in this country and makes it tough for us Americans to find work!!!!! Also, all factories are now in other countries for profit reasons. It's easier to profit out of the country now and the USA is responsible for that!!!!!!!!!!!!! The United States does not have much for production compared to years ago. Why? Because the govt made bad decisions from the years past to get us where we are at today. Small business's cannot compete with competition overseas at $2 an hour, with all the taxes and regulations the the govt set forth. Large companies are making it, because all their employees are overseas. So, us Americans cannot find work because of that as well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are more bank robbery's and suicides now than there ever was. Is that what's going to keep happening. America needs some serious help and I believe the Govt is 100% responsible for all us USA people out of work. There were many years of irresponsible govt BS that brought this on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marcus, I agree Obama is the worst thing that has happened to this country. I am a married mother of two and I started working two weeks after I graduated high school at a very large phone company that shall remain nameless. I am now 39 years old…..and was sent packing from this phone company after 21 years of service, with 14 years of perfect attendance…..with no more than a “see ya” From the moment I was laid off, I IMMEDIATELY started looking for work…..first, jobs comparable to what I did and comparable pay. NOTHING. Second, similar jobs with lower pay……still NOTHING. Now, I am STILL currently unemployed and would take a job anywhere to bring some money into my household….NO ONE is hiring. I am someone who has worked my @ss off my entire life, as well as my husband. We have an average home right now, and HAD a beautiful piece of land that we intended to build our dream home. We have since had to sell, to stay afloat. My husbands business is by commission….so with everything slowed down….his weekly check has gotten smaller. I just wanted you to understand that there are hundreds of thousands of NON Left Wingers that pound the pavement everyday looking for work that is sadly just not there. I NEVER in my life thought that I would have to collect unemployment…..but for all those years that I worked and the government took taxes out of every single check I took home…..I am a Loser for collecting some of my hard earned tax money back? after my lovely past employer sent my job to the Philippines for $3 an hour??? Everyone that collects unemployement are not all lazy left wingers looking for a free handout. They can be people that worked hard for years and years, and did everything right…. with goals and dreams that unexpectedly came to a screeching halt because in one days time you come home, after 21 years, newly unemployed and your $250,000 home will not sell in a crappy market and is now valued at $170,000….so your theory of sink or float….I believe its sink or swim…..I prefer to swim, however its a little hard to swim when there is no damn water! I am strong, not weak, I will survive but I dont appreciate being called a Loser! And that is just my opinion.

Belinda, I am not sure, but I think you have to wait for this 30 day benefit extension to be passed that Senator Harry Reid is working on. The one with the February 28th dedline. Then you should be able to get the Tier 4 checks.

Every state has different rules though.
You just have to check with your state on this to be sure.
Some states are not waiting for the Federal extension to pass.
Some states are getting their own funds going for the benefit extensions for their people there.

I would not worry about the letter, sometimes you have already got the money before you get the letter and some people never do get the letter, i just hope they do something before this 6 weeks runs out or we are going to have total national emergency in all the states because they are all set to go out about the same time, and i don't t know what state you'll live in but Ms. has no jobs and they are the lowest paid for unemployment in the united states.

What the HELL! You must still have a job/income. Myself and many others have worked all our lives, being on jobs for 10 to 30 years to find the life line taken away from our lives and family. Don't be selfish in these trying times because you have an income. If it was so easy to go out and find another job, just like that, then many would be employed. Any income is better than none, but with minimum wage, many will find themselves still on the street, catching the bus and seeking food stamps, etc. Don't judge, for you never know when disaster may strike you or a family member. Your opinion STINKS!

WHO WAS TAKING ALL THE KICKBACKS AND OBTAINING HIGH BONUSES WITHIN THE HOUSING MARKET, CAR INDUSTRY, BANKING AND SO ON…..NOT THE CURRENT PRESIDENT. ALL THE SCAMS WERE TAKING PLACE BEFORE OBAMA CAME ON BOARD, BUT EVERYONE WANT TO BLAME HIM AND HIS ADMINISTRATION FOR CORRUPTION BEFORE HAND. THE PRESIDENT CAN'T MAKE LEAD WAY FOR CRITICISM FROM THE PEOPLE AND THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES. HOW IS OBAMA THE WORST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY….UH? HE HAS ONLY BEEN IN OFFICE FOR ONE GOOD YEAR AND NOW HE IS THE FLIPPIN BLAME FOR 100 YEARS OF BULLSHIT AND SCHEMING. IF ANYTHING HE PUT MANY ON BLAST AND HAS TRIED TO GET RID OF THE HIGH PAYING, STEALING, LYING, THIEVES THAT ARE IN HIGH PLACES. OF COURSE, BLAME OBAMA.

I hope you are not implying that I am racist….you would be very mistaken if you are. I could care less if the President is Black, White, Purple, straight or gay for that matter…… My thoughts on Pres Obama are this……he is a very intelligent man, and a great public speaker. He just does not have enough experience to lead this country especially in the state that it is currently in. I DO NOT like his approach on how everything HAS to be steamrolled through Congress at 90 mph. Every agenda is rush, rush, rush…..HealthCare Reform, Cap and Trade…..etc…… I am from MA, a hugely populated liberal and Democratic state…..but look at the message that Scott Browns (R) US Senate election sent to Washington……..Americans do not support this TRILLION dollar Healthcare Reform that he is SHOVING down our throats. This is not going to cost us taxpayers money????? Be SERIOUS!!! Our great great great grandkids will still be paying on this if it goes through, and if and when it does go through……it will be on to cap and trade…..another HUGE bill that will have a HUGE impact on every single American …… and they will FORCE that through. How is that being the fair and balanced President he campaigned to be?? What of his talks about no backroom deals…..”the buck stops here” he said. So, now every state in the union has to pay for part of Nevada's medicare/medicaid payments to buy that extra Democrat vote for passing healthcare??? that is not a back room deal? The Stimulus package HAD to pass….and yet there are idiotic things the money is being spent on……most recent one I heard was the study at NYU to test the effects of alcohol and marijuana together……haven't heard of it??? Google it. Thats some well spent money of our tax dollars right there. I am pretty sure quite a few students at NYU would've done the testing for free after their frat parties. All the stimulus money that sits there, why aren't we paying it back to China now? Why is he givng a terrorist a civilian trial? The guy tried to blow up an airplane……if he succeeded, how would you feel if a family member or friend was on board? Does a person like that deserve a lawyer? I think he deserves a little concrete box with bars on the front for the rest of his life…..and that is being mild. Yes Obama has only been in office for a year, but he has made mistake after mistake and doesn't seem to learn from them…..bad appointees, Acorn, and just not listening to the American public in general. Its hard to be supportive of the President when every single poll on healthcare reform has Americans opposing it, and yet he ignores that, and goes full speed ahead, because its his grand plan, and he is too stubborn to see that its not a good idea, and no one wants it. I didn't like Bush, I dont like Obama….I haven't liked a Presidential candidate that made it to the ballot in years…… We need a complete government overhaul in my opinion, and get back to Representitives and Senators that actually listen to their constituents and pass their feelings on to a President who wants lead by listening to the people not by steamrolling them into crappy healthcare so he can go down in history as the one who finally got it passed.

WHY ALL THE LOOP HOLES , THEY MAKE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE COVERED AND WHEN THEY DO GET SICK THE INSURANCE CO IS ALLOWED TO DROP THEM!! DONT SAY AMERICANS DONT NEED OR WANT REFORM THEY DO, OBAMAS VICTORY OVER MCCAIN WAS BECAUSE OF HIS PROMISE ON THIS HEALTH CARE ALONE… WHY DO YOU THNK HE GOT ELECTED? HE PROMISED EVERYTHING HE IS DOING OR TRYING TO DO, INHIS CAMPAIGN HE PROMISED MAJOR HEALTH CARE REFORM!!! NOW ITS A SHOCKER THATS HES DOING IT? OH MY GOD A PRESIDENT THAS DOING WHAT HE PROMISED!!!

I have been in medical school for one year. Now that congress didn't approve the extension I have to drop out of school and pray that I can find a job. Without warning or anything my benefits will end in two in half weeks. I was told at my career center I would draw for two years, enough time to finish LPN. Now my dreams are gone because our government choose to help other countries instead of “HOME ABROAD”. I have spent thousands of dollars on my future career and I get screwed in the end.

I'm so confused! I completely exhaust all of my UI benies (state and federal) on 3/16/10. Does this mean that is it and I have to start worrying about being homeless? I can not find work anywhere!!! Are they going to create a tier 5? What are we supposed to do?

Folks unless the millions of unemployed get toghether and form an organization similar to what the Unions do, we will always be putting up with this crap from our government. There is power in numbers. An unemployment organization could be formed like a non-profit organization. And there are plenty of free websites out there on the internet. Just Google for free websites. They are easy to set up and design. No special talent or knowledge needed. They are so easy to work with, anyone can design one. You don't have to be a webmaster who has a degree in website design to create one of these sites. If you can use a word processor or Microsoft Word you can design a site with one of these free programs. Then ask maybe $5. or $10. for dues to help keep the website up, pay for phone calls and postage etc. Then get someone who is good at lobbying you can send off to Washington DC to lobby for the unemployed. Then when the government sees you are an organization that numbers in the millions they will first take notice and do something for you.

It is really sad to see that SOME people are willing to put others down because they are unemployed. It seems to me that these people should be grateful that they have a job instead of making a mockery of the others who lost their jobs, whether they are newly unemployed or long term unemployed….you are right Lucy a sense of encouragement and HOPE would be nice to help us all get through this.
I also wonder if anybody ever thought about the long term unemployed people as well. What's going to happen to all of them when they exhaust their 99 weeks of benefits? We aren't talking about just a handful of people; we are talking thousands if not millions of people nearing the end of their 99 weeks, with no end of the recession in sight. Why hasn't this issue been addressed in this big bill as well, why are they forgotten about? They need a 5th tier.

It is so sad to see that the great human race is willing to put others down because they receive unemployment.

As a former worker trying to get back into the workforce I would not put anyone down let alone call someone names simply because they were let go of their job through no fault of their own, and is having a harder time finding a job.

Unemployment is something that is not paid by the tax payer; it is paid for by employers.

TO ALL OF YOU WHO CONTINUE TO BEAT DOWN THE UNEMPLOYED, you must have a recession proof job if you have a problem with others receiving unemployment. How about offering them a sense of hope INSTEAD of making others feel bad? A word of encouragement would be nice!

I hope in your lifetime you do not have to experience the life of unemployment. Being unemployed in your mid age of life is challenging for most people. We are hit with words like your overqualified for this position or you need a degree. Why don't you offer someone some advice and tips on how to obtain and keep a job through these tough economic times instead of criticizing others?

I am the sole supporter of my household, college kids, marriage and mortgage. Do you actually think this is somethhing anyone has asked for. I've depleated my retirement, gone into collection on credit cards, etc. I am aware I wwill take a serious pay cut at any new employment opportunity and am willing to do so. For every job there are probable 500 applicants, interviewees are lines up. So now what is your great response??

I've never got a job from a newspaper or some random job search site (didn't bother looking either), because I never just wanted to survive or stick food on the table.

Ok – I am not looking for a pissing contest here. But, just to clarify, I am the product of a corporate restructure. Which means that myself, a majority of my contacts within the field, and many peripheral people in the many other industries suddenly (& yes without warning) found themselves unemployed. I am not crying, just disillussioned as unfortunately I did tie myself to corporate. Until this era I have never had a problem gaining employment and progressing. I have compensated my budget drastically with my own resourcefulness & ingenuity. But, I did rely on the proverbial paycheck. It is just unfair to voice an opion and degrade people for not having the ability or foresight to find a way to be independantly self-sufficient.

I have no problem with people who are resourceful and want to regain their step. I am opposed to (as a majority are) to handing out what seems like indefinite UE checks. I do not look down on the less fortunate (but so many on these boards have unchecked emotions and anger and they see everyone not in agreement as the bad guy) Its selfish and they want it to be all about them.

To the mack: I just have to laugh at your posts. It's interesting to see that you feel the need to disrespect people who are unemployed. Why do you get such great satisfaction kicking people down that are not as fortunate as you are? Do you think you are untouchable, and exempt from ever loosing a job? Why do you THINK you are better than the millions of people who lost their job? Everything that you are saying is totally absurd & you know it!

If it was that EASY to find a job right now, we wouldn't be in a recession. I don't think the millions of people who are unemployed right now need to justify anything to you! If anything it's the other way around!

If you can't offer something POSITIVE to say to the MILLIONS of people who are unemployed right now, maybe this would be a good time to reflect on YOUR OWN life, and thank GOD that you have a job! While your at it, ask yourself why you are so MISERABLE with your own life that you feel the need to bring everyone down with you!

Of course there is alot of unchecked anger and emotions. Our society & economy has been in a downward spiral and it's hard to see the light. We have our vets living on the streets, with minimal or no assistance. There are manay, many people who have become devastated with the unemployment situation. there are not enough jobs to go around. Our industires have virtually all move out of the country. Try buying USA made goods – can you find them? and when you do they are more expensive. Most people are apathetic until it affercts them directly and then they do think of only themselves. But, generally most people are good, honest hardworking individuals that now do not know where to turn or how to deal with their situations. It is time that we turn to each other and draw from others strength and work together a a whole unit. We need to think and protect ourselves, become strong and then help to others to recover.

My benefits ran out February 6th, (fourth tier), haven’t seen my son in the year and a half I've been on this unemployment crap. The income is too unstable to involve a child in, and his dad doesn’t want him around me till I can “get my *#it together.” He's six, and he's paying for this economy’s crash more than I am. I’ve gone from couch to couch this whole time cause I cant afford a place of my own & still have the lights on. I’m 27, and when I was 25 I got a class a cdl so I wouldn’t have to wait tables my whole life, then went over the road for awhile driving for swift. Luckily I met someone who owned a company in phoenix who said they needed another concrete mixer driver and they would train me, and I figured cool, $16.00 an hour to start, 50 hours a week, and full benefits. So I moved down to phoenix from Payson and started my training. the day after my training ended, I was told that I was going to have to be laid off with another 40 employees because gas prices had risen too high and they couldn’t afford to keep the trucks running, that I did a great job, and wanted me to come back to work when things leveled out. well that hasn’t happened yet, and everyone else that has a truck on the road is having the same problems they were, so finding another job in the field has been like finding a needle in a barn full of hay. plus I hardly have any experience, and my cdl is gonna expire soon which I guess doesn’t really matter now, cause if things keep going at this rate, I wont have a use for it anyway. I’ve tried getting into another field, but with no luck. there's ten people to every job that becomes available. I'm not entirely sure how our government got this country into this mess, but we have professors in classrooms in Harvard that might have some really good ideas on how an economy works and the best ways we can overcome a failing economy. politicians aren’t trained to do math, so maybe they should ask the professionals. I don’t know, just an idea. sure wish we could figure it out though, and soon. otherwise, I’ve got my eye on this bridge a few miles out of town that might make good shelter until I die of starvation. Oh well, at least my son isn't gonna have to be there doing it with me. Good luck to all of you who have gotten caught up in the results of other peoples greed. Apparently we're nothing, cuase they favor they're jets and mansions while we get the cozy warmth of an underpass and the delectable leftovers from the dumpsters at mcdonalds, if we're lucky. I suggest if your story resembles mine, get it online, talk to the governor, post it on a billboard, whatever you have to do to get the story out there as soon as possible, because the more people that are unsatisfied with the way things stand now that get their stories out there, the better chance there is of changing it sooner rather than later. Again, best of luck to you all.

So unfortunately for you mack, you will be HEARING A LOT about the long term unemployed people needing a 5th extension. Just like there are MILLIONS of NEWLY unemployed people wanted the 99 weeks of benefits, there are MILLIONS of LONG TERM unemployed people needing a 5th tier. Better get used to it, and if you can't learn to show some respect for the MILLIONS of others who are unemployed right now, I suggest you go somewhere else & make an ass of yourself…Obviously the people here have had enough of your rude comments!!

Again there is no tier 5 or adding of weeks…just them playing with your lives. (as you like to think). But I will leave the board if there is a extension handing out benefits past the 99 weeks (looks like you're stuck with me though) and if there are not more tiers or add-ons I will need your names and then will have to report you to your UE depts as freeloaders and turning down work.

in response to steve, he might be right about calling it tier 5, from what i heard they are going to try to not break it down in tiers but just run it all in to one, because it cost them too much money and work to break it ip in a few weeks, but never the less reguardless of what they call it, it is comming and it doesn’t matter what they call it,.

That is 1 million too many people! Do you remember how many people had to wait until December to receive their extensions? It was over a million and come this April it will be way over a million who have exhausted all of their 99 weeks of benefits without finding a job! The economy has not changed, and for the government to ignore this fact that there are millions of long term unemployed people still struggling!
The news media needs to report this as well. Just like it’s all over the news about the newly unemployed needing the 99 weeks….the long term unemployed need help as well and we need a 5th tier. It would help us out if we could get a news reporter to report this on the internet as well….I guess they are not saying anything about it….in the hopes that if they just pretend that we do not exists, that they don’t need to add more weeks to the unemployment extension!!!

Someone else called Pelosi`s office and they were told there is no more extensions (tier 5) because not enough people are complaining about it….

EMAIL or CALL your state senators, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and demand a Tier 5 extension.

Posting on the net is great but it won`t do a thing unless you are contacting these elected officials as well.

if Pelosi`s office “needs” complaints then flood her office with phone calls and faxes and send them to her.

The unemployment bill has misinformed a lot of people. They are simply extended the dates not adding any extra weeks to this bill. I don't understand why NONE of this was addressed in the bill to add additional weeks for the OTHER MILLIONS of the LONGEST TERM UNEMPLOYED.

This bill is not a second stimulus, but it's going to deliver badly needed relief to Americans who are hurting, said Sen. Chuck Schumer, it would be cruel, even inhumane, to tell these people that their unemployment benefits expired. Well HELLO, don't you think it's cruel, even inhumane to FORGET about the MILLIONS of the LONGER TERM UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, whose 99 weeks of benefits are about to run out if not already! They still can't find a job either, and we need a 5th tier!

Lisa is right. Millions of people all across the nation are asking for a Tier 5 even a 6 one. Even some of the Senators say the job situation may not get much better well in to 2011. There is still too much out-sourcing and foreignors on Visas coming here taking the few jobs left. There is a definite need for a Tier 5. Millions of Americans maybe out of work, but they can still be a powerful voting block. So remind your Representatives when you call or fax them that they will be voted out of office unless they help millions of the unemployed with more benefit extensions. And these 6 week ones just don't hack it. The money is soon gone and the jobless are right back were they started, begging Congress for more extensions. Congress may talk about where is the money coming from to pay for the unemployment benefits. Yet they don't worry about where the money is coming from when they vote themselves a big fat pay raise.
You don't hear them arguing about where their pay raises are going to come from do you? They always seem to have pleanty of money for that.

I've been unemployed for 52 weeks at $131.00 per week, and am looking at the end of Tier4. There are very few jobs in my county…mostly in health care and over the road truck drivers. Many places don't take walk-ins anymore. You have to apply online. And hardly anyone even acknowledges your application. You never hear back. I've emailed my reps and the leaders in the House and Senate asking for another Tier. What else can one do? It's not that I want to be on unemployment, especially at a mere $131 per week. It's that there are no jobs. Even a part time job would pay more, and provide the security of a steady income as opposed to the short term promise of unemployment Tiers. The reason I'm only getting $131 is because when my regular job of thirteen years ended due to bankruptcy and the economy, I found a part time job which I worked for a year and a half before it too went bankrupt. That part time job is the one the state used to determine my benefit amount. If I had had unemployment on my mnd I would have jumped on the wagon at $275 per week and would have received the full 99 weeks. But then, who thinks that way?

I knew you would ask…its a program that has spy capabilties that was designed in Israel and is used in the blogging community to keep track of whats being written and is used a lot to identify the malcontents. Media and many government agencies use the data taken right from these blogs and form definite opinions. In the case of the UE the decision makers who pass and write legislation form much of their opinion from what is written and posted. They can certainly find out who you are, but its unlikely they would pursue any one unemployed individual at least thats what I'm being told. Although they have noticed many of the unstable fringe element constantly asking for more checks, and they have adjusted their legislation accordingly. Example: no tier 5 for the forseeable future…maybe never.

That's a silly argument. Every unemployed person here would love to have their Representatives read their posts to get an idea of what the unemployed are going thru. Heck, contact us!

As for your position, you seem to be laboring under a delusion, as if this were the eighties, the economy were strong with plenty of jobs and the unemployment rate were two or three percent which is the normal ebb and flow between looking and finding work. Were that the case, there would be no need for federal unemployment extensions.

The reality is that this is the worst economy in our nations history. Remember the bank bailouts, the insurance company bailouts, the trillion dollar stimulus, the auto maker bailouts, the construction industry going in the tank, foreclosures, and bankruptcies way up. Are you aware of these facts?

As for the emotions coming from some unemployed people here and elsewhere, that's desperation. But can you blame them? There are two million jobs and fifteen million unemployed people, not counting those who've fallen off the rolls which may put the figure closer to twenty million, not to mention the high schoolers and college grads entering the work force.

There may or may not be another Tier of benefits. I hope there will be, and it is sorely needed. Like the previous federal Tiers, it will be an act of compassion and charity towards the unemployed, and act as a form of stimulus to the local economy as the money is spent on rent, electric, groceries, clothes, gas and so on. This in turn helps to keep other businesses alive as the money passes thru their hands.

I'm convinced that this, the American people and the economy, is all irrelevant to you. You're here to say things that you think will hurt people who are already suffering because you enjoy it. And yet God grants unto you, day after week after month and year of Tiers for you to carry on your non productive cruelty towards your fellow man. What makes you think you deserve one more second of life for which you have such a casual disregard? Are you aware that God is reading this column too….reading all your words and measuring your soul?

Here is a new bill.

H.R. 2847 Can Be The Bill To Include A Tier 5 Extension
Posted by G at 11:29 AM on March 12, 2010.

H.R. 2847 (Jobs Hire Act) is being worked on and all signs point to the bill coming up for a vote before the spring break. This could be the vehicle we need to facilitate creating an amendment for a tier 5 extension ASAP. It's Friday, let's make the calls, send the faxes and e-mails. No matter where it is placed, let our elected officeals know we need a tier 5 extension allowing for benefits for those that have, or are about to exhaust all previous extensions BEFORE THE SPRING BREAK.

H.R.2847

Title: Making appropriations for the Departments of Commerce and Justice, and Science, and Related Agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Rep Mollohan, Alan B. [WV-1] (introduced 6/12/2009) Cosponsors (None)

Related Bills: H.RES.544, H.RES.552, H.RES.976, H.RES.1137, H.R.2391, H.R.3288

Note: Pursuant to H.Res. 976, the House modified the Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Act, 2010, H.R. 2847, substituting the “Jobs for Main Street Act, 2010″ as Division A of the Act and the “Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2009″ as Division B. (Regular appropriations for FY2010 for activities funded in the C-J-S Appropriations Act were included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010; see Division B of P.L. 111-117.) The report of the House Rules Committee on H.Res. 976 (H.Rept. 111-380, p. 5) summarized the matter included in Division A of the Act concerning the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP); infrastructure, employment, and public investment programs; unemployment insurance; COBRA; small business loans; the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage; the child tax credit; surface transportation; and certain civil rights claims.

Obviously they don't care that much….thats why you get so many conflicting stories when you call their offices. Actually they kinda tell you what you want to hear (sure the senator's working on that right now) to get you off the phone. Example: where is that tier 5 legislation the cheerleaders are trying to sell you? I haven't heard anything substantial in the news cycle regarding the UE extension since March 9…I'll give you a guess why not. Face it longterm its a uphill climb for you and it starting to snow. I'd start being real about my job search if I were you, because if you think its tough now you have know idea whats coming…Maybe you do…I hope.

Its not irrelevant to me, but I'm an excellent judge of people, and I know things sometimes aren't what they appear to be…don't take my word though, because I'm not the one handing out your checks…but it seems you have problem with them too.

“act as a form of stimulus to the local economy as the money is spent on rent, electric, groceries, clothes, gas and so on. This in turn helps to keep other businesses alive as the money passes thru their hands” That is a UE advocated talking point/bumper sticker. It has some validity, but come up with something else huh? I watch all the numbers e.g. UE has been coming down (lets put it this way..its not going up) retail spending is on the rise, businesses are adding inventory…all positive things. But the problem on these boards and I will limit it to these boards..most of the UE don't want to express themselves like you, is you don't try and see the positives. There was nothing cruel and inhumane in what I said, just a difference in our points of view.

No that picture abuses your emotions…I offer a reality check…because I truly believe you do not tell anyone around you (not the online world) the things you express here. Do you tell friends, family, people you encounter man I really need that Tier 5 to pass or I just made a hundred calls to senators and obama? No you don't, because its awkward and embarrassing to talk out loud like that.

You do have the right of course…but with that comes my right to ask what the hell is wron with you? One more time the cost of the program is too expensive, that is why there will be no more tiers and extending of current tiers…what part of that can't you understand. Money Money…you don't have it and the gov't doesn't have it (for this program) Keep begging and I will keep giving you the reason why not…clear?

Who is paying for the unemployment extension?

Don’t worry, you won’t have to go into tax debt because of this bill. The government isn’t taking money from tax payers just to turn around and give tax credits to those same taxpayers. The unemployment extension will be paid for the same way unemployment insurance has always been paid. That wouldn’t make any sense. CNN reports:

Hi Angie…I am here in California. I was laid off from my job too, and I was used to making a lot of money as well. I am grateful for my unemployment checks, and I am about to start my 4th tier. California's unemployment rate remains the 5th highest in the nation at 12.5%.

You are doing a great job with your petitions! We do need a 5th tier, and it truly doesn't matter what mack says…he is so unimportant and just a bitter person….like I said, I like to put him in his place and laugh at him because he proves over and over again, how foolish he is….just laugh it off I do!

Well its a sad morning over in my neighborhood, the people who live three houses away from me in my gated community here in Florida, were literally put out in the street this morning! The sheriffs came and tossed them out of hteir home, they have owned for 14 years! They both worked for big companies here for years and were laid off three weeks apart almost 22 months ago! they have been helping to get ptitons for help with ui insuranc enew tiers but hteir time now has run out, seeing their kids toys and furniture out in the street is heart breaking! They had a beautiful home they both worked so hard for! Even with the food stamps we fot them on thye lost it! I was crying all morning something has to be done and quick! This man literally went out every day looking for work, he used my office every other day to print more resumes, and he got three interviews in 6 months! between the two of them at least when the ui benfits were coming in it was almost 800 a week and kept their bills at least currnet or close to current , this is shame, now the house will sit and rot as the banks just board them up, like others around here and dont maintain lawns or rest of the property! Animals start living in the pool, snakes lizards ,sometimes baby gators, well at least animals have a new home right/? ay. We literally have houses all over here that have forclosure short sale signs all over the yards for over a year already! kids use them for partying the cops come and throw them out every weekend! they need to pass a new tier and soon I hope every one is emailing and calling all weekend i know Lisa and trace are, lost jobs always does hes a good egg! Then theres the trolls who write everyone and say dont give them nothing let them die……Well I guess its up tot he senate and house now, isnt it sad that after years and years of college, working hard at great jobs for years its come to this! And these hard working tax paying citizens have to beg or get welfare to get food on the table! you know we did it right… got an good eduacation, bought homes raised our kids, and then Bush!!!!! He should rot in hell with all his billions.keep emailing keep faxing, and the phones every hour on the hour will due. god bless all of us! love angie

You see when you take a mcjob you are at the mercy of the employer and he will let you know when your time is up. I have have worked for people, and even enjoyed some aspects of. But in the end it just made more sense for me to pursue other opportunities that were there…and no turning back. I've said that I have pursuit that will never go overseas or be outsourced. Its actually recession proof, unless the internet ceases to be (how likely is that huh)…someone always needs content.

However, when we deal with our emotions by calling others names and saying rude things it's simply a reflection of one self. You simply don't get your point across by talking this way….if you speak on a more intellectual level you may get further. Please take care of yourself.

I write and speak to the level of the situation — and this board doesn't require a high level of intellect. I am reflecting the 90-95 percent of this country's views regarding the the milking of the UE benefits. So check yourself and ask what impact am I going to make today, am I tired of being talked about like this — should I get a job?

As I bloggd last week children and their toys thrown in to the street literally with sheets wrapped around all their belongings! From a bank we bailed out! They do not like this health care thing but thats their opinion she again today has come here had coffee and helped me fax everyone, and she herself handwrites letters and emails for me also! It doesnt hurt to ask. I know where you are in /california has a very high rate of unemployemtn but keep your head up? have you exhausted all of tier 4 also? keep in touch with me ok you have my email address and dont for get every day at least ten emails, that 70 a week just from you and with my 800-1000 thats alot from just 2 people, that doent count my family and friends that email in my behalf also, then add Trace 1000 lost jobs, steven, john, michael, and paul and of course allison we are small numbers but look how many we are together, so if you email 20 a day that sevenmore, get a frined and thats 100 more!

Rude yes, its required to come on these boards…angry no. I don't really care about UE wants and desires. What I do care about is the ones freeloading the system (oh I forgot nobody does that). By the way the majority feel they way I'm expressing it. What is with you people and denial? And by the way I have a job…so that automatically puts me ahead unless you don't care about working and being productive…just saying.

Please note that California, Nevada, and Wisconsin had their TUR triggers sunset but they currently meet the IUR trigger criteria to remain “on” in the EB program, so their EB periods would continue until they fail to meet the criteria to be triggered “on”.

people like you make me sick…. do you realize that to even qualify for benefits, you have to WORK for a certain amount of time? We are not just a bunch of freeloaders wanting something for nothing. Do you know that unemployment does NOT pay enough to live off of, it us made to help get through tough situations and alot of us right now are just trying to feed or families and have a roof over our head. God forbid you lose your employment… I worked the same job for 11 years before I lost my job, you tell me sir or mam, is that long enough in your opinion??????

Unfortunately, that's how some people think of us here. They don't get the fact that the millions out of work were contributors of society. Paid their taxes on time, supported their local communities and their local economies. Worked long hours to get food and shelter for their families. Then, in the blink of an eye, it's gone. And now, we are being treated as lepers. Despite the fact that many people here were paying unemployment insurance through payroll taxes. Despite the fact that we, the unemployed, are STILL taxpayers because we have to pay Federal taxes either through deductions in unemployment or at the end of the year when tax time comes around. Oh, how people forget once you're unemployed

Thats right just 3 states and Wisc. has not held 8.5 for 3 months (avg) But what the rest says is the triggers are now off. You will only receive checks til the end of the year if congress passes 4213 otherwise the tier you are on is the last one. EB triggers off in April. What does this tell you. You can read right?

Let me tell you something mack. I came home from Iraq to no jobs here. I spent 18 months risking my ass so you could run your mouth here. I have been searching for a job like you wouldn't believe. I started school after I couldn't find a full-time job hoping I could find a part-time job. Wal-Mart won't even return my calls. When I'm not at school, I volunteer for the city with their IT department at least three days a week. I need a tier 5 extension. You have no right to call me a free loader or any of these other people. Who are you? What have you done? Let me guess. You pay taxes. So does everyone else. What have you really done for this country?
I understand that some people do cheat the system, but there are a lot of people who don't. These are your fellow americans your talking about. Americans who are suffering. If your so concerned with free loaders, then why don't you bitch to the people in washinton who are all criminals. Most of those crooks have been free loading since this country was founded. You talked about us riding out the gravy train. I get three hundred dollars a week. Thats no gravy train. I am a single parent with two young children. For you to make fun of people because they don't have money is just ignorant. Again, there are people abusing the system and then there are those who are not. I didn't hear people bitching about sending money to hati when there are thousands of americans who are starving in this country.
I served this country for eight years in the army just to come home and listen to some jack-ass who has nothing better to do than harass people here. You mack are a little man. You come on here and brag that you have a job and how much better that makes you than us. I bet you have a small penis. Does it make you feel good to come on here and do this. Do you feel like your doing us a favor by showing us the error of our ways. I don't want more unemployment, I would really like a job, but until that happens, I want my unemployment that I worked hard for. You have a good job. We all get that. Would you like a cookie? In reality, I'm glad that your doing well and have a good job. Thats one less american that is suffering through this hard time. I also agree that people who are just milking this UE should be cut off. I think there should be mandatory work searches for those drawing UE, foodstamps, and medicaid. I think there should be drug test for these as well, to get rid of some of the free loaders. You must understand though, that you are no better than me or any other of these people just because you have a job and we don't.

( I betcha 3/4's of the senate and house didn't know that the bill didn't include help to the original longest termed unemployed!) How is it that I am a law school graduate and I didn't understand, and was NOT prepared to lose my benefits!! I followed the bill relentlessly day in and day out!!! Thanks for the FALSE hope and misguidance! It's only going to cost me my (mortgage) house and my very expensive health care benefits! That's all! NO biggie, right? I will mail my foreclosure notice and my healthcare insurance cancellation in two weeks to the white house!
We are begging you!!!!! Put our concerns on the news!!!!! Enough with the trivial issues!!!!!

Bye the way, my older sister is an Ivy League grad lawyer and is also UNEMPLOYED!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is Bull Shit! Yeah, she and I are one of you! That’s right! Not that it shouldn’t matter! But, it’s not just skuzzy Joe Blow or Jane Ho, who’s not even dignified to polish off the scum off your shoe heels who’s pounding the pavement with 100 others for one position.

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We cant go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to brend
So we all must lend a helping hand

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe theres no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we're making
We're saving out own lives
its true we'll make a better day

No Angie, the health care is only free for illegal aliens. It states all legal American citizens must pay for it. I have been working with an organization contacting Senators and Congressmen about the health care bill. Here is what it really says in the Obama health care bill: H.R. 3200 exempts nonresident aliens from the individual taxes, insurance purchasing mandates, and fines which are required of every legal, U.S. citizens (p. 170).

Notice it is required by every legal, U.S. citizen to PURCHASE this insurance or face fines and jail time.

I was just taking some time to read all of the previous comments.
I honestly wonder why any of you pay any attention to “The Mack”.
He is obviously delusional to consider UE a gravy train by any means.
I can agree with him on one point however. That being the fact that many people do take advantage of the UE system. However can you not say the same about the “bailouts” the govenment provided to AIG that were spent on employee bonuses…

If we as a nation can not take care of our own then I regret to call myself an American. I also find it quite ironic that the senate has difficult time passing a Tier 5 extension that will undoubtedly cost billions but has no issue providing 500 billion dollars to Haiti. Yes it was devastating what happened in Haiti but how dare our government make suffering americans play second fiddle to anyone.
In my opinion “America comes first”.

In conclusion It is a shame that people like you Mack can live through life with such a flawed sense of values and lack of compassion. It is also further disturbing that you, a person of ill will can thrive through such difficult times.
I hope that you find hard times and that your life becomes a reflection of deeds.

I wish the worst for you in every possible way. For you to be stricken with cancer and to live one hundred years in poverty could not save your soul from the inevitable.

I'm sure you will reply to this post with your predictable charm that most of these users have come to love. (That was sarcasm if you didn't catch it)

My will to make it is stronger than most. I have the support of a great family and I was listening when I should have been. You would be surprised to know that I have wide range of view on many things, some with much compassion…I don't club baby seals, I hand money to the homeless, I give generously. But I can't figure out why people come to these UE blogs and reveal their inner-most flaws with people they will never know or see. Therapeutic exercise I supppose. Self pitying weaknesses should remain with oneself.

So you give money to the homeless but have a strong conviction against people getting a Tier 5 extenstion/Extensions until the end of 2010 that could possible prevent them becomming homeless as well?

That makes so much sense…. (Sarcasm)

I answered your pathetic excuse for a reply above.

Also regarding the new phrase used inthe media as you call it
“Extended Vacation”. Exactly how is making 1/4 of most peoples original salary a vacation. If anything most people are just managing to get by.
This isn't a vacation by any stretch of the imagination.

Perhaps you will understand better when your in this position.
I'm expecting a reply along the lines of
“That will never happen to me due to my amazing planning and my philosphy of listening when it matters”.

Your right, your will is stronger then most, you are so willingly anxious to bash the unemployed any chance you get! I guess that's your form of therapeutic exercise that shows your weakness, & self pity, which should remain with oneself.

Are you jealous because you can't be on an extended vacation too? If that's the case, since you claim to be so generous…how about giving one of us your job?

If you are that unaware of the economy, perhaps you may want to educate yourself instead of coming here for YOUR THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE!!

The Mack Is Wack

Mack you obviously live in a world that is your own or are in a small town with a population of less then 3000.

It is pretty evident that this is so due to your lack of knowledge on just about everything and the ongoing fact that you only provide generalized sources as proof for your claims or outdated statistics.

You also fail to realize that a large portion of employment was through private and small businesses. When those stores closed and were not bailed out like AIG and other said banks people lost jobs. Those jobs were not reintroduced in another form, they were eliminated.
I have many friends who had to close their doors do to stress on the economy and in the process had to lay off their entire staff.

Also you forget to ever mention a few other factors that has killed the job market. Here is a big one for you, outsourcing. Have you even given thought to how many people have lost their jobs do to outsourcing? No you probablly haven't because as I said before you are in your own little world.

I'm actually a bit disapointed in you Mack. I was expecting a better OP from you. Tisk Tisk.

“I'm not the only one objecting to these extensions”

Of course you arn't jack ass you have a job. I'm also betting that the people objecting to it also have jobs. You know what that sounds like? A biased opinion that should be sent straight to the trash.

Also if you think that Tier 5 extensions arn't going to come then you indeed have no grasp of simple economics. A good portion of UE benefits goes back into the system. People pay bills, buy food, and the necessary items to survive. For those who ride the “gravy train” as you would call it still contribute by buying merchandise at said store.

When you don't give UE benefits to people, you have millions of people who have nothing. By having nothing you have nothing to lose. It is at this point now that crime rate increases and things spiral down hill.
Does that paint a pretty picture for you?

This is just adding fuel to the fire everytime you reply to Mack. It would be smarter to just ignore him and act like the did not exist. This newspaper the Washington Independent was good enough to give the unemployed a site to post on. I am surprised they have not run everyone off of their site a long time ago. Everyone is like a bunch of children fighting with the Mack. Now lets get back to what this site was suppose to be for, the unemployed. And forget the Mack. Lets get back to contacting our Congressmen and Senators to ask for a Tier 5 before everyone's benefits run out.

Comment posted March 23, 2010 @ 8:55 pm

Hmmm well their are reasons for that…and since you obviously are not educated also it's so funny how you are constantly bringing up the fact that we don't have a job….Here is what happened: although the Senate passed a year-long extension of the filing deadline, it did so as part of a larger bill containing “tax extenders,” provisions of the tax code that lapsed at the end of the last year that the Senate wanted to extend into 2010. The problem is that those extenders were offset with revenue raising measures that the House had already set aside for the health care bill. So the House could not pass the Senate version of the bill, and late last week, passed another 30 day extension of the filing deadline of the UI and COBRA programs so they wouldn’t lapse. The plan is to then deal with the longer extension of the filing deadline once the Health Care bill fully clears Congress.

People have specifically have asked you to provide actual facts to every comment that you post…& yet you still can't do it…and try to divert the attention else where…for future reference…back up what you have to say with facts…other then making these false assumptions of others….& show a little professionalism & respect while your at it…

Those are actual facts. If I can find them you can too.

But if you can show me a specific bill written up to this point addressing add'l tiers or weeks beyond 99 then you may have some credibility in your cause, but at this point you have better chance at getting a job than ore handouts.

Again the fact is there is no tier 5 or added weeks being considered at this time. This is the focus of our group — no more money past 99 weeks. The other type extensions, they seem to be having traction problems also, but yes they are in the form of a bill. Another fact: UE benefits were not talked about at all today in the senate. Don't you need some movement on something by the end of this week? Question for you — do you feel this is a high priority with them? I get no joy seeing some one suffer…besides you are faceless on a comment board…only you know what your true situation is.

You people want this to be personal…My life will go on whether UE benefits are addressed or not…and yours will too.

Hi mack, we understand that about the tier 5 and that's what we the people are working on. It won't happen over night, but it will happen eventually. By the end of this month, there will be MILLIONS of people exhausting all of their 99 weeks of benefits and are at the verge of loosing everything!

The economy has not changed in the last 2 years…Millions of people still cannot find jobs. One of my friends applied for a job, and over 2,500 people applied for the same job! They interviewed 80 people out of the 2,500. Needless to say..there is a lot of competition out there. It's not easy out there to say the least.

So seriously, you should really count your blessings & be thankful that you don't have to go through this & experience what it's like to be unemployed in these times. This is not any ordinary recession…this is history in the making mack…so unless you experience what it's really like out there…you truly are clueless.

As far as the government is concerned, they always wait until the last minute, but they will not allow millions & millions of people sink, and we have hope & faith that things will always work out for everyone who is affected by this economy. You should never wish bad upon anyone mack..& although we are faceless to you…we are REAL…behind this computer, and we have REAL feelings…because we are people too!

This is a job for me man…I get paid to read blogs, boards, and give opinions about whats going on out there. Actually its a great job…getting paid to do something you want to do…your own boss, working when you want to and deciding who you want to do business with. You people are just headed back to mcjobs…but that'll work. I'm glad you called that service, its what I wanted you to do all along…I'll check with her. Say it now — mack was right…if you can do that I can guarantee things will get better for you. Positive focus c'mon. I've got your attention and a lot of others too.

Hey mack…have some class & show some compassion for your fellow Americans. I know it might be a bit difficult you, but try to behave like a responsible civilized human being. I've been reading all of the comments here, especially yours…& you seriously lost all credibility a long time ago…
The majority of persons collecting unemployment are honest and are victims of this recession. They would not qualify for unemployment insurance if they were not laid off due to no fault of their own. Report more stories on that fact than the childish few who do abuse the system. There's fraud, waste, and abuse in every program from all government programs (state or federal). What's with the need to pick on the unemployed?

With comments like this and the lack of cooperation in the Senate, it is going to be an uphill climb for the honest unemployed who are in desperate need of an extension of benefits. As is true with most things, the greedy few can ruin the entire system. Or a more famous phrasing, “One bad apple can ruin the entire bunch”.

In my opinion, I think the bigger fraud is the fact the American taxpayer is paying United States Senators (who have a salary of $147K to 194K per year) to say to the people, “We are just not going to cooperate the rest of the year”. Or just flatly saying no and deliberately obstructing critical and time-sensitive legislation that will help millions of jobless Americans. This fact is something to think about when we all go to the polls this November

Cindi is right. Even Walmart, who hires on a regular basis, has no jobs here in NJ. A friend of mine is Director of HR for Walmart says she gets over 50 applications a day and she has no positions to offer anyone.In fact, Walmart is cutting hours. Sears is cutting hours. Petsmart is cutting hours. These for the most part are minimum wage jobs. Recent college grads are having problems getting a job. In NJ the Casino's are cutting most of their hourly employees down to 32 hours a week.

I'm not down on the UE…But I can't get behind someone who needs 2 and half years of gov't handouts. As most are saying if your job search efforts are sincere and that ambitious then you would be able to find suitable work (or maybe a little less than you're used to) to get back on your feet. These are not just a few saying this..Come on! When no new extension happens, I suspect that ambition to get back to work will kick in…because if it doesn't thats when the suffering will really begin. You should be getting prepared to take a job, because its really going to get competitive once the gravy train rolls to a stop.

Its not that deep. Actually I was on the lead back oct/nov 09. While I opposed that one…it was inevitable that something was going to get through. But since then the UE rate has declined steady (could be better of course), the markets are picking up…really all indicators, housing is bouncing along the bottom. (not my beat though) But once that previous extension got through, I decided to look at this thing more in-depth and I can't see where giving someone 2.5 years of UE handouts ( at 2.5 years, yes it does become a handout) is helping the economy in general at all. Yes I know the bumper sticker slogans. If I cut and pace something its because I had some involvement in it, also it comes as a result of many hours of research…so go ahead say it: Mack knows what he's doing. As far as education; it helps, but it does take an entrepreneural sense, and being in the right place at the right time.

If you know someone that needs some quick income and great food:

This week in an area near me, there is going to be an attempt by some of the freeloader fringe to protest for more UE checks. (not sure if this effort is all that organized). Well with my own money I am intending to bring some anti-more check people in to oppose it. What they will be doing is throwing a newspaper at them, specifically the want ads. When I started perusing these blogs for reasearch and information and to observe and report, I never thought I would become this engaged…good thing for me — because I truly want to make a difference.

What is ridiculous is people picketing outside of these media companies asking them to report on their need for a more UE checks. Someone at one of these organizations was telling me that they see the passion and they do understand, but its a fine line for them not to become enablers, because gov't spending is out of control and belt tightening is what the majority want to see right now. This is a worthy effort. If you would take the time to see that giving people more handouts for very little or nothing in return makes them dependent on the gov't. then you would actually understand what this is all about…but I don't think you want to.
If you think giving 2.5 years of UE checks is the way to fix this country..you're high..But I certainly do not and I'm not alone.

At this writing I'm not sure they are going to through with it…which is a good thing I guess. But we'll be ready in any event. Hope to see you there.

This information came from the Labor Board. And it shows that in some states the unemployment rate has actually gotten worse. This table shows the comparison from 2009 to 2010.

For example California was 10.2 in 2009 and now is 12.5 in 2010 – Other states have also gotten worse..

Heres the deal…if you want to stay on UE, whatever. But what attracts negative attention is getting on these boards ranting about more UE checks or thinking its all about you…big clue — its not! So there are millions of UE that collect their money, stay away from anything public and when its over they go get a job. We don't know who those people are and its best that we don't. Also — we don't need to know anything about you or your existence, there are just too many people in this country to believe you're going to get personal attention. Go about your business and it will all work itself out. One little thing that makes me proud…over at one of the bigger boards, they were complaining that they weren't seeing enough protesting or signatures for cause. I'm sorry to report but thats the reality of it. Just a few fringe. The rest — not so much.

Try not to get delusional. Since Tier 4 was handed out, that UE rate has declined (could be better – but has been lowered) some states better, some not. So if california is getting worse, they should address it and get people the help they need. I'm sure they will get around to it. But don't blame me because you're not being heard, blame your message — thats uour real problem.

Profile of a Sociopath
# Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

# Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

# Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

# Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

# Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

The people that have collected 99 weeks, probably don't have much of a chance (but thats why we're still following it) of seeing any more, and if you are one of the minority that feel the need to spill your emotions on these sites, be prepared for the attacks.

All I know is I'm comfortable and make a decent living. These boards were at one time about getting back in the workforce, sharing constructive ideas, but so many lost their way when that tier 3 and 4 was handed out, then expecting the gov't to pay more checks after that until they can find that perfect-fit job. Thats where I entered, and I can tell you that is flawed thinking, so far it hasn't worked out well for those that had that mindset…but since my time isn't limited, I be around working the boards and phones…g'luck all…Ist one to the top wins!

Aight..listen up. Just to show you I hope all of you find a good job, and will be supportive in that venture, I will begin each one of my posts with something like: good luck on the job front or you'll get that job..you get the point. Funny I don't hear much of that around these boards.

The things you learn about while trolling the UE sites! Well I'm going to pass along some valuable help; specifically to the people that still have checks remaining, but others can benefit from this in the future. Go to ratracerebellion.com (very legitimate site) and research only the self employed / contract-non employee status companies. (do not worry about ones that want to make you an employee). The beauty of this that you can work from home as a contract employee, I won't give specifics but by making some calls and reading about it on their sites, you will soon see what I mean and where you will fit in. The person that offered this suggestion has made this work for them in previous downturns and this one. They asked that I don't share their specifics, but assured me and I checked also, this will work.

Hey Mack!! Didn't think I'd find you over here being so hypocritical and all. Wanna hear a good one?? Mack talks about people on unemployment milking the federal gov't, when for 4 years, Mack was doing the same thing in the guise of the military. He's making such crude statements about people being on unemployment for 2 years, when for FOUR years Mack was milking Uncle Sam!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Ask him also to prove that as he puts it “15 million unemployed people don't want additional benefits.” Ask him. He won't answer the question, but just give you the runaround. Mack is a hypocritical troll who also qualifies as a gov't milker too.

Well I went today to apply for a parttime receptionist job, I spoke with the HR lady and I almost was begging for the position. I am a 99er and have been unemployed for 2 years. I no longer have benifits and if people think there are jobs out there they are full of s!%*&. I told the lady that the amount of salary that I had made in the past(it was required on application) wasn't important to me (because this was a lower paying job) I just really think the job is perfect for me. So yes I will take any thing legal to do and yes it won't be good pay but I am out there looking. I don't know how people are going to pay there bills and eat. For the ones who are putting people down for being unemployed you can kiss my ass, you better be thankful you aren't dealing with trying to keep your home, paying for things you can't pay, and buying food. Just remember what goes around comes around and all those out there who are putting us unemployed down better watch it, they may be faced with “How are you going to pay your mortgage to” Bless you that are having hard times you are not alone.

MAck, since you are so intelligent and have all the answeres and you seem to know there are so many jobs out there-give me the name of the newspaper you getting that has all the job openings because I do not want unemployment, I want a job. However, I am 63 years old. My husband and I worked for the same company for for over 20 years and they closed their doors and filed bankruptcy. We have a mortgage to pay as well as utilities and other expenses. We have applied for every job opening in our paper, signed up with our career center and gone door knocking on so many businesses we lost count-still no job after 1 year. So with all your intelligence, tell us ignorant old people how we are going to continue to live without extensions to unemployment. We have worked and paid taxes all our lives and through no fault of ours, we have no job and can’t get a job.Get off your high-horse and stop putting down employment extensions. I agree extensions are not the answere. The answere is stop sending our jobs to Mexico and over seas and put them back in the USA and no one will have to worry about unemployment. I will be watching for the name of that newspaper.

I am hoping for change! We need 5 tier extensions. Damn I never thought I would be in this situation.

I am in the same boat, and know of 3 other people here in CO that are at the end of tier 4. Now that my COBRA has expired, I have been turned down for insurance from 2 different companies, and one offered me a policy for $600+ a month and 10K in deductible(I did not know that COBRA even expired). I am suspicious of all the news stories that say the economy is improving, and wonder where they are getting their 'facts'- not from any of the everyday people!

WE ARE IN A DEPRESSION!

Published on Sunday, Jun 06, 2010

WASHINGTON: Even as employers have resumed slowly hiring this year, a disturbing trend pulls in the opposite direction, as the number of Americans who've been jobless for half a year or more continues to reach new records.
Throughout last year, when unemployment averaged 9.3 percent, the long-term jobless averaged 31.5 percent as a percentage of all unemployed.
''The situation remains very dire in the labor market,'' said Heidi Shierholz, a labor economist with the Economic Policy Institute, a liberal research center that closely tracks employment data.
The previous modern worst showing for long-term unemployment was in 1983, when, coming out of what was then the worst recession since the Great Depression, 23.7 percent of the jobless were long-term unemployed.
After the 1991 recession, the long-term unemployed in 1992 were 20.2 percent of the jobless.
As bad as 2009 was, better data skewed the 31.5 percent number early in the year. By December, the long-term unemployed were 39.8 percent of the jobless. That share crept up month by month to 46 percent in May, meaning that almost one in two Americans who've lost jobs have been unemployed for longer than 26 weeks.
''The main thing I'm concerned about is it was so much higher in 2009 than in any recession, and we've only seen it go up since then,'' said Kai Filion, a policy analyst at the Economic Policy Institute who crunched the numbers for McClatchy Newspapers to provide a state-by-state breakdown.
His concern is well-founded. Averaged over the first four months of this year, 43 percent of unemployed Americans have been jobless for 27 weeks or more. That's more than double the 1992 average, almost twice the 1983 average and approaches one out of every two unemployed workers.
''The way you think of long-term unemployment is it is a sign of severe deep recession. States that get hit particularly hard are going to get particularly high unemployment,'' said Jesse Rothstein, the chief economist for the U.S. Department of Labor.
''Things are going to take a relatively long time to turn around. You can't see full employment from here,'' said Raj Chetty, a Harvard University economist.
The long-term unemployment numbers provide fuel for those who are arguing for extending unemployment benefits, which usually last 26 weeks. Congress has extended these benefits several times since the recession began in December 2007.
The House of Representatives passed another extension May 28, but the Senate hasn't yet agreed.
If Congress fails to extend benefits beyond the current 99-week maximum, the Economic Policy Institute estimates that 8.2 million Americans will fall off the aid rolls. Even with an extension, the drop-offs will number at least 3.3 million.
When benefits expire, severe poverty often awaits. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said that 33.7 million Americans received food stamps in 2009, up sharply from 26.5 million in 2007. This March, the latest numbers available, more than 40.1 million Americans were getting food stamps.
''It is the most fundamental safety-net program that's available, so when the food-stamp program grows it does speak to the economy. Many people will turn to food stamps because unemployment [benefits] wouldn't be available,'' said Stacy Dean, the director of food assistance policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal research organization.

If the congress thinks its so easy to find a job then let them step down from where they are and let them try to survive with what we have right now. They dont want to pass the extension on unemployment then I think they should have to take a major pay cut themselves let them live on what we make and see how they like it they wont make it I stand for passing the unemployment bill for people that needs it to pay their bills and house payments if people lose their house and business start to shut down then what are they going to do

Today is June 27, 2010 my name is Debra Davidson. I have been unemployed since January 8, 2009. I'm legally blind, Developmentally Disabled and suffer from mantel illness. It has been Extremely hard for me to find a job. The truth is there are no jobs out there. I live in New Jersey were the Unemployment rate is 10.2% . It is extremely hard for someone with Developmentally Disabled, is legally blind and suffering from mantel illness to find a job. I'm constantly looking, sending out my resume and getting no responses. I have bills to pay, food to put on the table, a roof to keep over my head, medical bills to pay, and pay for my medications just like everyone ells including you Congress men and Representatives. You spend billions on wars and don't think about the budget. Are you trying to put all of us that are unemployed into poverty? Please, Please we desperately need tier five Unemployment and money beyond that to survive this economic crises which we did not create.

Yea I'm 57 and been out of work for 2 years, been on numerous job interviews and even been in the top 6 which they received over 300 resumes and still didn't' get the job. I'm even dropped my wages to open salary and still can even get a response back. What does the president or congress this the American people to do. I agree with the person who said why does the first lady have to take trips and spend money the country doesn't have. My husband is even one of the state workers that our governor Arnold idiot has continuesly takes money and makes him work with no pay. Why does he have to pick on the state workers, they have already proved it hasn't saved money just more overtime. it only looks good on paper. We need for the governor of california to make his people take pay cuts and make the ch0 have pay cuts. This is so wrong, no wonder the crime rate is going up, people are just trying to survive, so please if there is someone out there listening a TIER V is so badly needed, please help all of us or there will be more people on the streets and not paying their rent.
