Congress Warned Not to Forget Long-Term Unemployed

There is unemployment, and then there is long-term unemployment. As Congress grapples this month with ways to tackle the nation’s jobless crisis, many economists are hoping lawmakers recognize the distinction.

Not only is there often a stigma associated with being out of work for long stretches, but the long-term unemployed are also more likely to have lost a competitive step in their field, requiring focused retraining programs more nuanced than simply throwing federal dollars to existing industries. Many other workers will discover that the task they’ve spent a lifetime doing is no longer relevant on the other side of the recession.

[Economy1]“The longer you remain unemployed, the tougher it is to get a job,” said Gus Faucher, director of macroeconomics at Moody’s Economy.com. “Your skills atrophy. Employers — rightly or wrongly — take that as a signal that you’re damaged goods.”

The combination of factors presents a dilemma, not only for jobless folks in search of work, but also for the Washington lawmakers trying to stoke the coals of hiring. That long-term unemployment is at the highest level since recording began in 1948 only adds to the urgency of getting the policy right.

“It’s a hard question for policymakers,” said Chad Stone, chief economist at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. “There aren’t a lot of things they can do quickly.”

Not that they aren’t trying. The House in December passed a $154 billion jobs bill, including billions of dollars in highway infrastructure, public transit and emergency help for struggling states. Few observers, however, gave that proposal much chance of passing the Senate, where Republicans have been pushing for a smaller bill with a greater emphasis on tax cuts. Indeed, on Thursday Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the leaders of the powerful Finance Committee, introduced a jobs bill of their own. The $85 billion draft proposal is centered around a series of business tax breaks designed to spur hiring and individual tax relief designed to encourage spending.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was quick to dismiss the proposal, arguing that it was too heavy on Republican sweeteners and too light on actual job-creation provisions. “The message is so watered down,” he said. The final product, though, is certain to look more like the Baucus-Grassley draft than the bill passed by the House.

Some economists are warning, however, that tax provisions like those in the Senate bill pretend that the jobless pool is a level playing field, ignoring the stigma and skills questions associated with the long-term unemployed — and therefore favoring those who lost jobs more recently. ”Someone who’s been unemployed only 6 or 8 weeks often looks like a much stronger job candidate than someone who hasn’t been employed for the last 66 or 68 weeks,” said economist Gary Burtless, formerly with the Labor Department and now at the Brookings Institution.

Desmond Lachman, economist at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, agreed, arguing that policymakers should be drafting their legislative fix in recognition that the nation’s jobless crisis is historically long-term. ”There is a distinction to be made,” Lachman said. “Policy needs to concentrate on retraining the long-term unemployed. Those who are short-term unemployed can rejoin the labor force more easily. They would benefit from policies that got the economy moving again and that subsidized employment through tax credits [among other things].”

The $787 billion economic stimulus, enacted last winter, included billions of dollars for new job training. Economists are largely in agreement, however, that the package wasn’t large enough to address the recession. Another pickle: deciding which jobs merit retraining is never easy. It leaves lawmakers with the task of trying to distinguish which occupations were shed as a result of the recession, and which were lost due to deeper structural shifts governing the ever-changing economy in the age of increasing globalization. In short, some experts warn, not all retraining is created equal. “There’s a mismatch between the skills these people have and the skills we need moving forward,” Faucher said. “Retraining won’t do any good if the demand isn’t there.”

The comments are timely. Even as the nation’s jobless rate fell to 9.7 percent last month — down from 10 percent in December — that headline-grabbing figure disguised a deeper problem: Namely, the number of American workers who’ve been unemployed longer than 27 weeks hit another all-time high of 6.3 million in January — up 183,000 since December and 5 million since the start of the recession in December 2007.  And that doesn’t count the roughly 2.5 million folks who want to work but have stopped looking.

The National Employment Law Project, an advocacy group, lent a bit of context to those numbers, pointing out recently that the average stretch of unemployment has topped 30 weeks — a full nine weeks longer than the most recent severe jobs crisis in 1983. Another dismal milestone: more than 41 percent of jobless Americans have been without a job for longer than six months, NELP noted, up from 26 percent in 1983. Since the start of the recession in December 2007, the economy has shed roughly 8.4 million jobs.

It’s a trend that threatens the economy in a number of ways. Not only do the long-term unemployed consume less, but they’re also more likely to foreclose on their homes — a situation that only cripples recovery efforts by depressing the housing market even further.

The White House seems to be well aware of the hurdles ahead. On Thursday, the administration issued its annual economic outlook, warning that long-term unemployment — and the skills lost as workers sit idle — can lead to a reduction in productivity and earning power, even long after the economy rebounds. The White House estimated that the economy will begin creating jobs this spring, though not in significant enough numbers to keep up with the labor pool, which grows by 100,000-150,000 workers each month. Indeed, Moody’s Economy.com is predicting the nation’s unemployment rate will jump back up near 11 percent later this year.

For his part, Brookings’ Burtless suggested that the depth of the crisis demands a public jobs program on the level of the Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration — which employed 3.3 million people in 1936 — or the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act under Jimmy Carter, which grew to 725,000 public jobs in 1978. The political reality, however, is that today’s Congress is much too conservative to endorse such large, government-backed programs, even despite the stagnant jobs picture the country faces.

Once again it is glaringly clear that their is a distinct disconnect between the taxpayer and our so-called representation in DC. The American taxpayer no longer has representation as our elected officials do what is best for them. All the unemployed, underemployed and discouraged American ex-workers will have the final say next fall when they vote all of the elite out. I would rather have someone up there with zero experience as opposed to these corrupt corporate lookouts. The destruction of the middle class is almost complete thanks to politics and politicians.

It's been very long time since the American taxpayer had representation in DC. The ones that do control are also the ones who pay the least in taxes but have the lobbists to “fund” campaigns for reelection. We would like to believe that we matter, but only in a time of election do the little guys really matter. Just take a look at how when campaigning you hear that they need to secure the woman vote, the black vote, the latino vote. And once they are elected? We need to support big business, the banks, the car companies, those that are too big to fail. However, those businesses have failed the American people because the monies used to keep them afloat is taken away from services that need it the most, i.e. taken from the little guy. This is becoming a country where the 5% control the 95% and middle class has become a four letter word.

I'm stunned that Congress and Senate have chosen to ignore the long-term unemployed, as if that will make the problem go away. If they don't address the situation, it will come back to bite them in the future.

the new Jobs bill needs to address an additional tier for long-term benefits! This is the only viable option for those facing a severe financial crisis, and will at least buy some more time for the economy and job recreation to turn around hopefully in the 2nd or 3rd qtr this year!!!

I have too contacted everyone to even creating a campaign for “long-term unemployed”. Many do not understand that any approved extension is not for longer unemployed but only for short-term/newer unemployed. The extension provide time to move from state to fed but again does not provide any additional Tiers after you have exhausted the 6 weeks
If you can open this link below, this is revised bill reduced yesterday that will only move the expiration date from 2/28 to 5/31 but again nothing requesting any new Tiers for the long-term unemployed that includes myself who has spent hours/years searching work that does not exist. http://finance.senate.gov/sitepages/leg/LEG%202…

EMPIRE IN TOTAL AND COMPLETE MELT DOWN!

Now, we worked on re-writing the China Failure going on this month, and then we went over to (http://www.TheDailyBeast.Com), where an article was written, [Obama, Pelosi at odds], and after having read that, there is very little to say, nothing is going to get done, between now and the [4th] of July and after that its is everyone for themselves.

It seems the Clintons have put the bug in the Media Messiahs Imperial Presidents head that if he too were to lose Congress in the first [2] two years, it will mean his re-election in [2012] since like Bill the Messiah is Teflon. But, unless the economy gets a lot better a lot faster we kind of doubt that happening.

Things are in a Deadlock heading for a Meltdown, and the rest of the Global Community is going to move on and look out for themselves, the article reads like the American-Israeli Empire jumped out of the frying pan into the fire.

I am just using AARP as an example. The AARP is a membership association. The purpose of AARP is to provide a voice to the more than 38 million members of the organizations. The AARP lobby is one of the largest voices in the Unites States. Issues ranging from social security and Medicare to providing employment opportunities. The AARP is an effective voice and has the membership backing and ear of the Hill to impact the legislative initiatives of every Congress and President. So why can't the millions of unemployed Americans across this nation create an organization like the AARP, except make it for every age group. And get somone to lobby just like the AARP does for the unemployed? Get a website up and ask for $5. or $10 bucks dues to help pay for phone calls, postage and to keep a website up. There is certainly more power in numbers if the millions of unemployed all join toghether into one hugh organization. Then Congress will really take notice. And I think Angie has the kind of take charge and leadership qualities to get something like this going.

I recently saw a response from someone I'm sure you are all familiar with, saying to the effect that they are noticing there is a unemployed persons campaign right now for more checks and maybe they are not using their time and resources in the most effect way. Hint.

Dear Lost Jobs: Dont worry about remarks from the peanut gallery! Ive already started all my mailings. I had my attrney write up all form letters with all yur input including the overhaul of unemployment computer systems. Remember everyone I am not an office worker! I am a surgical technician for a vets office and never really had to use a computer! Im learning as I go, and if I had more money I would of taken a computer classs for sure! You know in this world there are many kinds of people, some help lift you up, andothers love to make you nothing and feel like nothing, I taught my children all of them , to stay with and arounf uplifters. I taught them that they can be anything if they work hard enough! And only recently in their 20s have they thanked me now they all graduated! So the morale of the story dont pay any mind to those who try to make us feel useless. Everyone is someone and all they need is someone to help them aknowledge this. There are some exceptions as we have seen on this blog. But Im talking about human beings not other species. KEEP EMAILING, KEEP FAXING, .KEEP IT UP EVERYONE WE CAN DO IT!!! THANKS FOR YOUR MORAL SUPPORT IM REALLY TRYING THE BESAT I CAN FOR ALL OF US. LOVE ANGIE

Drinking and picking up hookers while gambling away your disability payments, when you could be helping other people with at least 100 dollars a month to a shelter? Donating time is free, But I believe they require you to be sober and not on drugs. I believe your HINT REMARK WAS AIMED AT ANGIE AGAIN. What is wrong with trying to get something done? If Martin Luther King did what you did African Americans would still be sitting on the back of a bus for gods sake. Everything starts somewhere. She cant find a job so ,she does this in between her kids, her house, and god knows what else! I wish I could do more to help her. And you have two tiers left and are screwing us that dont have any checks left and no income , by taking money you dont deserve and gambling it to boot. People like you are useless to society .Dont knock good people who spend their time out of a drunken stuper and try to get things done! And what type of person comes on a unemployment blog and brags to people who are losing their homes , jobs and life savings that they gamble thousands of dollars away and gets drunk with enthusiasm.

I'm not old like most of the people on these blogs, so I don't have to worry about stuff yet…But I'm not leaving anything up to chance either. It might be too late for some of you to start doing something you want to do, maybe you should have thought that before…just saying.

And yes there is a feeling around the camp that the money used on extended check program can and should be put to better use.

I didn't start the attacking…I have an alternate view — I should have known that bothers the narrowminded.

And you know, I don't think I would even take an UE check if I was eligible…It just wouldn't feel right.

WORK? You said your on disability which means you can not work. You just said you work hard for your money..At what gambling illegal activity?And if your not 37 like us how do you get 5000 a month is disability? On disability you can not work( that is what disability is)! Keeping americans from the housing market bottoming out to even more than it is now, is what those extended checks will do ,It will keep millions of americans with a income while we are waitng for jobs and this jobs bill to work? So dont say you work for it if your not working! And if your younger than 37 and on disability already, what are you saving for the future?Being in a casino drinking picking up hookers and casino girls! Thats not saving for your future especially if you are disabled. You should be saving that money like you tell us to for a rainy day or better yet, how about getting some medical attention so you dont live OFF working americans on disability for the rest of your very young life. And I remember in a old blog last week you said you worked hard for many years , if your younger than me or us how CAN THAT BE? Look do what you want with your money, but there is nothing more important THAN AMERICANS especially NOT OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE HAITI and others like it?I made 1000 plus a week and if i got hurt we get a third and thats it. So tell your lies elsewhere too many holes in your story. I guess they teach you that in the gambling hooker halls!

Then check out the rules first to see if this company will allow you to use their software for the purpose you intend it for. In this case an unemployment organization.

Right now the most important thing we can do is try to urge our Senators to push this unemployment benefit extension before the February 28th deadline. Contact Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi too. And Angie I sure hope your daughter will be alright.

Angie, I gather you have used up your 4th tier then. I notice a lot of people are saying a 5th tier is needed. In fact some are saying the way the job situation is going they think even a 6th tier will soon be needed. They need to make these benefit extensions last longer too. This 13 or 6 weeks is used up so quickly that people are soon back where they started again. And it is wreaking havoc on the EDD offices too. They can't hardly keep up with the changes so that drags out the time people get their checks too. This whole system has got to change. It is no good this way. I hope you do not lose your home. Hope they get a 5th tier for you soon.

Are you people delusional? Tier 4 and 5 are never going to be a reality. It seems/appears that an extension of any kind is going to be difficult at this point. I hope people that make decisions or have the attention of decision makers see some of these blogs and realize that not everyone agrees that throwing money at what is becoming a blackhole entitlement is whats going to create jobs….and I do think its getting through to them. But if there is a trend in the other direction I think us as majority would be inspired not to see that happen.

O.K folks here is the latest I found today on the February 28th extended benefits deadline. On Thursday, Feb. 11, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) introduced an amendment to push back one week the eligibility deadline for extended unemployment benefits. Reid wanted the deadline moved to March 7 as a stopgap measure. Both Judy Conti, a lobbyist for the National Employment Law Project, and Sen. Mitch McConnell (Rep. Ken.) objected. They both want a longer time. McConnell. said “We'll be back on the 22nd and hopefully we'll have sufficient time to work on an acceptable extension.” I hope this helps to let you know they are still working on this. Plus we need to keep on those phones and faxes and push for another tier. Tier 5 is badly needed.

This government has gone to hell in a hand basket! I'm 63 and have had a job for 45 years without a void! They are saying were losing our skills by sitting idle, and considered “damaged goods”.
We are not getting hired because we are getting old! If I personally need to hire 5 people for my business, who do I pick?
The 63 yr. old that is going to cost me a bundle for the company health plan, that's at the age for serious health issues and lose a lot of time away from work, may be limited in his stamina performance? Hell no – he will hire a young buck who costs the company very little and expendable like a spark plug without any repercussions! We are not losing our skills or edge, we only lost our youth!!

rwtillema. You are so right! Wea re either over qualified or too old or just plain ole no ones hiring. Its sad the wya these young people treat olders like garbage. it was all of our elders who got this country so great to begin with. We were taught school you have to go school college to make something of yourself , well I did and I sent my three eldest chidren thru all of the above!Im overqualified to work at burger king what the hell does that mean? Why wouldnt they want a mature 40 something running their registers and dealing with their customers. Well eduacated, mature, responsible, got a reliable car, you know everything they ask you on the damn application. Every fast food place I went to for a job those were the questions!And they also know we will show up for work knowing we jave homes and children to support nut no, I was lkiterally with a big green stamp , stamped overqualifired on teh front of my application. I was told I was manager material, so I said ill apply for that. Well they wernt hiring managers I was told by a 19 year old kid right out of high school who wont cost them alot of insurance like you said, Now what kind of qualifiactions can a 19 year old kid with no college for business ed doing with a mangers job and full health benefits, no offense but every on ein there was less than 19. making 6.50 an hour. I dont mind kids who work . I worked my way thru college also as a waitress and bartender but i knew how to d these things and was defianately qualified!at 20 years old as My family ran and owned bars and diners. i had experience,so I understand you rfrustration. Good luck to you

Folks here is something that may help if you are not getting anymore unemployment checks. There is a website called Freelance jobs. Most of this work you do at home on your computer. And it costs you nothing. The jobs are free to apply for. There are business owners all over the world posting help wanted adds here. They are looking for people who want to work at home. Virtual assistants are what these home workers are called. Does not matter where in the world you live because you do the work at home on your computer. There are so many people out of work that most of these jobs are gone. But I just now checked the site out and there are still a few jobs left up there. And more could come in later. Check it out and give it a try. It could help pay for some food and your rent. And I doubt if they care what age you are, just as long as you can do the work required. And remember never pay anyone to get a job. The ligit ones never charge you a cent.

You need some reality quick. There are multiple posters with opposing views on these blogs. Not everyone sees your act as cheerleaders for more checks as the must thing to do. In fact prevailing thought in most places is just the opposite. You have your blogs to have some fun with, but I suspect when all of this tier 5 nonsense ends, that will be the end of your commenting days…we'll miss you., but we'll get through it.

I see that some here really have an issue with people receiving unemployment. After reading all the comments and, trolls or not, how about we switch positions. I will gladly do your job, and you can collect unemployment. You can sit home and see how easy it is to find work. You can worry about your rent, mortgage, car payments, food, clothing, and any other bill you have.
What a lot of you dont realize collect unemployment isn't a handout. We have paid into the system for decades of work. And without unemployment benefits the economy would be worse than it is now. Some of you that are working have jobs still because people do get unemployment and have to pay for neccesities like housing, food, utilities, transportation, and clothing. What do you think will happen if millions of people stop getting benefits? Since it doesn't affect you now, pray it never will.

You just have to not give up and instead try to do anything ligit that will help you to get out of a bad situation. And Angie I hope when you get time you will still think about getting an unemployment organization going. Even if a person is lucky to get some work, they never know when they will be unemployed again. And we don't want people to have to struggle through this mess again. The whole unemployment system needs to change. The system is outdated. Plus millions of unemployed need to join toghether into one big organization so they have a powerful voice in Washington, DC.

O.K. folks, here is the latest news for February 17, 2010. Democrat leaders in the Senate want to bypass 'pay-go' for unemployment extension. They said extensions of unemployment insurance and COBRA healthcare benefits should be emergency spending that isn’t subject to the pay-as-you-go statute, which requires new non-discretionary spending to be offset with spending cuts or tax increases. With current extensions of unemployment and COBRA benefits ready to expire February 28th. and the jobless rate still near 10 percent, Democratic lawmakers want to pass the extensions quickly, without having to find offsets for the costs. And a House Democratic leadership aid said, “Assistance to unemployed workers during periods of high unemployment are always classified as emergencies,” “That’s why they were done that way under the [House] jobs bill passed in December – while everything else in the bill was paid for.” Now lets hope & pray they do move quickly on this after they return on Monday February 22nd. And keep on the phones & faxes to keep the pressure on them to do this before the February 28th deadline. And also push for a badly needed Tier 5.

Get this one. connor1998 wrote, in response to kai2:

Heres a idea for all the unemployed. There are plenty of jods out there: McDonalds, Taco Bell, Burger King, In N Out Burger, other Fast Food chains, cleaning hotels or motels, working at slaugterhouses, farm labors, day laborers, cab drivers, supermarket workers. You can start your own buisnesses to include: carpet cleaning, pet grooming, landscaping, window washing. There are many jobs out there. Hence, if you want to work there is work, and then after a time other avenues will open up to you. Good luck.

What connor 1988 forgot to mention is most of those jobs are taken by illegal aliens who come to this country. At least in California and some other states the illegal aliens take all the day labor jobs. And farm labor jobs. In fact they are the reason a lot of Americans are out of work in some states. Because the employers want cheap labor. And hamberger stand jobs, unless you are a teenager forget it. They won't hire anyone over 21. And even most of those jobs in some states are taken over by the illegal aliens. So are the hotel and motel jobs. Just go to Las Vegas and see who is working now in the hotels. And how are you going to start your own businesses if you don't have any money? This conner 1988 should get real. He is living in fantacy land.

He hates reading we have nice big homes with pools, hot tubs, and might stilll even own a nice car. Ive applied fior Food stamps and we have been approved , starting next month march my last was was claimed, they are heping us with electric, cash assitance nad are now in the process of setting my 4 kids and wife all full medical benefits, so people if you claim your last week call the social services dept, and get on,its better than unemployment you get full benfits!not as much cash only 1000 a month cash, but you get medical! But IF WE GET ANOTHER EXTENSION YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT INSTEAD! I WAS TOLD WHEN IT COMES WE NOTIFY THEM. EVERYTHING KICKS IN ON MARCH 1SR.And I for one am not embarressed to get food and cash assitance, I hope everyone who is cliaming their last checks to get on immediately it takes almost three weeks top actually be on, and 4 weeks to get medical benfits, by the way no co payments at all with medicaid!

I started reading blogs like this one in Jan of this year. Free speech is one of our rights in this country, I've learned a lot about the the struggle of my fellow americans & that I am not alone. The people who want to post negative comments just want to get a rise out of you.They talk about things like a bloggers spelling or grammar. If you ignore them they'll go away & if they don't so what they will not get the attention their after or KARMA will kick in and they'll have to eat their negative words. To those in this struggle congress is dragging their feet because there are other things they want passed and we are the pawns. This is not a game peoples emotionally health are being affected by this @ the thought of losing their homes, cars & the only income to feed their family. I've lost my home & car and now they dangle the only income i have to feed my three kids, I have never been on any other assistance other than UI and have work since 16. I am not a charity case I am american who never complained on pay day at the amount of money they took out of check, I worked two jobs when the child support did come, I never used credit, HAD a college account,savings account, & 401 K before all this started. All I have now are the Love of my kids & my UI to help feed them. Keep updating struggling americans like me. I truly beleive every genaration has a crisis to deal with this one is ours. How do they come up with money to help & fight other countries but cant find money to help their fellow americans. To the blogger I know keep up the work trying to help,things are still the same for me and it looks like its about to get a lot worse.

But I know how it is when the kids want food and you have to either pay a bill or go food sholling! Of course food shopping is always first! ?But for two weeks I had no money and had to stretch what little food in the house ! It was horrible to hear the kids get upset and cry. We have even eatten cream corn and bread for dinner. Never again, I now starting next week get 900 dolars a month in food stamps and full social services benfits. I had to wait until there were no more weeks to claim..And i understand having the love of your kids!! When the snuggle you up at night theres no better feeling in the world right? i am lucky enough to have a beautiful home to raise them in, but what good is that with no elevtric or food in it! so oneof the trolls i think it was Mack told me to stop whining and go to welfare, it was the best thing I ever did.I still worry efvery day about getting a new full time job, but my kids have full medical,and the 1000 a month in cash stating in march will help the mortgage and my parttiem fill in work helps the rest of the bills, this month things are alot better than last month . I was at the end of my rope, im sure you know that feeling. You look at your little ones and think oh my god, whats oging othappen to them? right? and then we come on here for news and the trolls are slumming saying give your houses to the bank, screw them.

I have been searching the internet for anything that will help us. And I found a free accounting course anyone can learn. So they can maybe get a job in accounting. It is called Accounting 101.
Here is the link to the website: http://www.a-systems.net/accounting.htm)

I do not know how good it is. Everyone who is interested will just have to check it out for themselves. It is absolutely Free. And you don't even have to sign up for it. Just click on the link and bring up the site and start learning accounting. And to the left of the website you will see another link you can click on to bring up a free financial calculator. Most people unemployed can't afford to pay for any training so anything we can find that is free helps. And it helps to learn some kind of job skill.

Welfare is an option…If its what gets you by — take it. “I was woking and paying taxes” but not lately. What do you want to be called? welfare client — fine thats what you'll called.

Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing me. I have heard from many
Americans who are losing their jobs and struggling to pay their bills.
Every day, I meet with my economic advisors to make sure we are
doing all we can to create good jobs and help Americans support their
families and pursue the American Dream.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was
the first step to spur job growth and ease the pain of unemployment.
This measure was designed to save or create millions of jobs here at
home in industries such as alterative energy, health care, and
construction. By extending and increasing emergency unemployment
compensation and increasing access to health insurance, ARRA has
provided relief to millions of unemployed Americans and has helped
improve our Nation's economic outlook.

Many Americans, however, are still struggling to find
employment and provide for their families, and I am working to
promote additional job creation. To assist workers who lose their
jobs, I signed into law the Worker, Homeownership, and Business
Assistance Act in November, extending unemployment benefits
beyond what exists in ARRA. I also signed into law an extension
of COBRA benefits and partner with Congress to ensure that a safety
net remains in place for those who face long-term unemployment.

My Administration is also helping Americans return to work
by emphasizing job training in industries that cannot be outsourced.
Recently laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits have
new opportunities to pursue higher education and job training
programs, including easier access to Pell Grants. To encourage job
creation in the United States, I am replacing tax laws that send jobs
overseas with new incentives to create them here at home. Available
assistance can be found online at:
http://www.dol.gov/recovery/implement.htm or http://www.opportunity.gov.

Together, we can help more Americans find and keep good jobs and
enjoy a healthy standard of living. To locate an employment center
near you, select your state at: http://www.dol.gov/dol/location.htm.
For information on benefits and opportunities for those out of work, I
encourage you to visit: http://www.dol.gov/dol/audience/aud-
unemployed.htm. To find career resources, you may call 1-877-872-
5627 or visit: http://www.careeronestop.org. While it will take time to turn
our economy around, I am confident that, working together, we will
emerge from this crisis stronger than before.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama

This is the response I recieved from the white house, I sent a email about a month ago. i asked about the jobs, an extention & new tiers. I dont know if this will help anyone.

With the job situation the way it is, those extra Tiers 5 and even 6 are needed. So here is a form letter I found and contacts for Congressmen & Senators.

Just copy and paste the letter below into your word processor program.

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,

The sad facts of this country is that it has continued to allow non stop immigration while allowing companies to outsource jobs everywhere else in the world. It has gotten so bad that even the illegals are wanting to go back to their own country. Here in NYC the Mexicans themselves can't even get the menial jobs that once dominated. Now due to stricted hiring laws those jobs go to the influx of green card carrying middle easterners. Employers are having a ball. They can choose to overwork dirt cheap labor, while paying no benefits. So anyone who sits there behind a computer telling you to get a job working in McDonald's, Walmart, or the 7-Eleven really should know what they are taking about first. No one, and I do mean NO ONE, is hiring anyone who has skills and made a decent living. Business start ups need capital, banks won't lend, it's all the catch 22 that you love to hear about.

I still ask myself why this country got into this mess in the first place. Well, it's because people like some of the ones here believe that since they have a job, then everyone should have one to. I say I agree. But since there are no jobs, give me yours and I'll get up early, trudge to work with a smile on my face, and reap the benefits that I went to school and worked hard for. The one here who gets paid to blog, that has to be the dumbest job out there, I'll take it and at least support the ones who continue to struggle just to keep what they have, since no one is getting ahead. I don't think anyone here wants to be on welfare, but just imagine the costs to EVERY market if that happens. I mean just look at all those welfare folk who shop for cars, pay mortgages, shop at Macy's, eat out in restaurants, go to ball games, and the like. And then, when the newly welfared(did I make up a new term) cannot shop, the stores will start laying off their staff to add to the unemployment mix, and then so on and so on and so on….

Maybe people won't be able to post on blogs, omg! That might mean you'd be out of a job too.

People here want to work. The overqualified, the middle aged, the close to retirement. We made this country great through blood, sweat, and tears. Work is all we know. You're born, you work hard, you live a good life, you retire, you die. No one here asked to be unemployed, but for people here to bash instead of actually helping is just un-American. I'm 40 and I'm ashamed that this country has deemed being old as being useless.

Oh puhleeze. The one area you're in has a Mcjob not hiring right now or as you claim has something to do with your residence status…whatever. The ones I pass everyday have had now now hiring signs out forever. Do you want to be labeled as cheap labor then be overworked..not me bub. I'm sure that a lot of you want to work. Perhaps you have you expectations set a little high, thats going to change for many real soon. No no one is overqualified for housekeeping or a Mcjob. And the online world will be just fine…maybe it'll look a little different at some point, but I'm all about adjusting.

And oh yeah..the wack job in the 500k crib that says people won't be able to afford the dollar menu, funny I see those entitlement cards getting whipped out all the time everywhere. Shhhhh

Comment posted February 19, 2010 @ 11:32 am

That's nice. The ones in my area also have the same signs too. As they all do. Doesn't mean that they are hiring the people who come in there with degrees. So your analogy is flawed. But yet I have applied for those jobs and others that I would sat are below my expectations. Overqualified is a nice way of saying you won't stay around when the market recovers, because seriously why would you be looking to work here in the first place, so we won't waste our time to hire you.

You seem a little bitter at the people who actually want to work but haven't found anything. See in speaking for myself I wouldn't have a problem working 2 or 3 jobs if need be. Though I rather have one, I'm a realist and well shit happens.Again, nothing out there. But your generic observances about setting bars too high don't fly…bub. It's more about can I afford my home, can I keep gas in my car, can I eat. What planet do you live in where $7.25/hr can pay for rent let alone any other necessities. Maybe in some small town that might be the case and if I could move that might be an option. But, there is some inherent meanings to the unemployment rate….THERE ARE NO JOBS!!!

So “the mack” thanks for taking the time to school me and the rest here and the negetives of being unemployed. Oh and how about you go apply for those jobs you say are there and see if you can be a test subject. If you get it that easy, then maybe we will just stop posting and shut up about it ourselves. Good luck.

Comment posted February 19, 2010 @ 12:16 pm

As I said it could be just your area. I know a 7.25 an hour mcjob isn't the ideal opportunity. So if you or anyone doesn't feel that would be a good fit most would understand. But as the hour is getting late you might want to un-conflict yourself. Little secret…you don't have to mention you have a degree or ran microsoft if thats not in the job qualifications or description.

THERE ARE NO JOBS!!! – perhaps, but the phrase is starting to be overused, it doesn't explain everything. The unemployment rate is dropping. I am not disputing that being UE is not a positive, but wanting to collect indefinitely or until to you find that job that suits you, thats where the negativity shows up.

Oh and I don't get my jobs from the newspaper or now hiring signs. Never have.

And to Steven. You did an excellent job of explaining the unemployment problems in this nation. No one could have said it better. Really gets to the heart of the matter. And it really goes back to the fact our own government has caused this problem of unemployment. So I feel they owe these benefit extensions to help Americans to survive until that day there are more employment opportunities created for our legal citizens here.

Comment posted February 19, 2010 @ 4:15 pm

Thanks lostjobs,

It sounds wrong but it's a true as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. By giving companies the ability to send jobs overseas that's x numbers of jobs less here. And the people that benefit? The companies themselves and the politicians whos wheels get greased. That's why you call for cellphone service or computer tech support and end up getting Vietnam or somewhere in India. Then you add the number of people coming into this country legal or otherwise and realistically what do you have? More people, less jobs. Total industries have collapsed. Housing, construction, finance, auto jobs gone. Companies now can ask for a receptionist to have a Masters in order to work. They can hire cheaper workers and force their current employees to work longer hours for the same pay just because people are afraid of losing their jobs.

This is a sad time we live in, especially when most in the government are directly responsible for the mess that we are in. It makes me a proud person to know that the banks, insurance and the auto industry were too big to fail. Now what about the middle class that dollars have paid into those companies. Are we to little to save? Or do we only matter during elections or tax time?

Steven, they certainly will need middle America at tax time. A lot of the illegals are paid under the counter. And that is an important reason why some of our states are going for broke. That is what happened to California. Too many benefits given out to support illegals and not enought taxes coming from the illegals to help support the state. Looks like our only hope is at the voting booths. We must do all we can to get rid of the self serving politiitons. And try to put into office the few who do have some concern for the average American out there. I hear many Americans across this nation have finaly woke up to this fact. And our busy doing all they can to work to support the good candidates. And make sure the corrupt ones wind up standing in the unemployment lines. Course we know they won't be doing that. Most will retire rich from all the ill-gotten gains they have reaped while still in power.

Folks I found another website that may be of interest to some of you. It lists Government jobs in every state. Just type in what state you are in and what type job you think you qualify for. Or just do a job search for what is available on this site. It is called USA Jobs. The Federal Government's official job site.
This is a United States Office of Personnel Management website.
USAJOBS is the Federal Government's official one-stop source for Federal jobs and employment information. Here is their website link:

website (http://www.usajobs.gov/)

Also it pays to check out your city websites. Many of them list jobs with the city.

And most City and Federal jobs pay good as long as you have the experience and certifications required..

You will most likely have to take a test and pass it for both the City and Federal jobs. After you apply they will notify you where you go to take the tests.
This site gives a list of current job openings.

Saturday February 20, 2010 The National Governors Association had a meeting. They say they are bracing for more economic turmoil. They say governors are struggling with states staggered by unrelenting joblessness and cut-to-the-bone budgets even as Washington reports signs of economic growth. And they think the worst is yet to come. They said it doesn't look to good for most states. And high unemployment persists. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland said. “He joined fellow Democrats at a news conference to call for an extension of soon-expiring unemployment benefits.”

So keep on those phones, faxes and emails not only to your list of Senators, but to the Governors as well.

.And even the Governors at that National Governors Association meeting say things are going to get worse. So they are pushing for this extension too. And I think for another Tier.

I read there are 22 states that will not be getting the extra weeks of the tier 3 extension due to being just points under the cut off of 8.5. So almost half our nation will be facing the streets this- winter. There are not enough jobs out there yet, so this magic number cut off is ridiculous. Also the 6 and 13 weeks extensions should be for normal times. These are NOT normal times, we are practicly in a depression as far as jobs go. So they need longer extensions. Some of the Senators want a long term extension that will last out for the rest of the year. But with all the haggling up there try and get it. Too many Senators are playing politics instead of worrying about the plight of the millions of American jobless. This is why we need some Congressman to sponsor a bill that would overhaul this outdated unemployment system we presently are putting up with.

After we get through working on this emergency February 28th dedline and asking for a 5 Tier, we need to then go to work contacting Congressmen across this nation and ask them to sponsor a bill to overhaul the unemployment system so millions of Americans don't have to suffer through a mess again like this.

And Angie is right. We all have to work toghether on this. One or two people can't do it all. Congress will only do something if millions of people out there contact them.

So keep on those phones and faxes.
Send them to the President, Senators, Governors and especially to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Polasi and Nevada Senator Harry Reid.

I think having deadline was bad call anyway there should have never been a deadline to begin with (no expiration date) and as far as new jobs being created where and how? I have been researching some work at home positions as with the technology of the internet they are becoming more abundant, just stay away from the ones that ask for money upfront and if you are internet savvy there are possiblilties. here are a few links to some

http://www.freedomathometeam.com/rkutney

http://www.kachingkaching.com/worldshopping

There is possiblities in work at home jobs.

And I say again to those who think we dont deserve UI benefits. I paid into them for over 30 yrs. and to SS which I probably will never see a dime of.

Those who are legitimately trying to get food stamps and welfare deserve it.

Those who are trying illegally use the system will get caught.

I see people that are on welfare that think “well I'll just have another baby and get more $$.

The ones that are against us who think it is easy to find work I hope you never end up like us.

KARMA IS A BITCH

btw to all the trolls I already gave my house and car back to the bank

I am able to just get by on UI and have a neighbor kind enough to share their internet connection with me.

UI wont last forever and I dont expect it to, but I think this country needs to help the people here before funding help to other nations.

Trace, I checked out those work at home job links you posted. This one has a lot of complaints against it: http://www.freedomathometeam.com/rkutney

Check out the Consumer complaints and Rip Off Report.com

Rip Off Report had a lot of people posting complaints about that company. One said he paid nearly $400 to join and did not make on cent. When I first clicked on the link to that site and read what they had to offer, it looked like a racket to me. And I found out I was right.

There are a lot of work at home jobs out there on the Internet. But most are rackets.

There are only a few ligit ones.

Elance, Guru and a few other ones are good ones who do offer you real jobs with some good pay.

Best to check out these online jobs with your state Consumer Affairs office first before applying for a job with any of these work at home companies.

And you can also check out the Rip Off Report.com site to see if there are any complaints against any of these companies.

I did not find anything bad yet about the other company link you gave.

But I think it would be hard to make any money selling products now that so many people are out of work. There will not be very many people out there able to buy much now.

Thanks anyway for the suggestion.

And like I say there are a few good work at home sites. You just have to be careful and check them out good before signing up with any of them.

Marcus, before you open your mouth, you should get your facts straight. I do not know what planet you came from, but most Americans know the unemployed pay taxes too, on their unemployment benefits each year. And a lot of states demand that the welfare recipents pay them back after they are working and no longer on welfare. So it is not exactly a free hand out.

Plus there is an old Indian saying: “Don't judge anyone until you have walked in their moccasins for at least one day.”

You don't know what the other person is going through.

Some of the unemployment department online sites even say there has never been a time like this since the great depression

So if Angie or others on this site cannot get a job what is wrong with getting food stamps and help to keep a roof over their families head ?

Besides if you were working all day as you say, you would not have time to harass people on this site.

At least the decent people on this site are all working toghether to help each other.

@Marcus.

You make the Republican party proud. Before you hit send you should check your spelling, grammer, and content. At the very least, maybe you should go to college whereby you can learn how to remove your head from your ass and put it in the sand where you can view your version of America.

Your credibility is at fault when you spout ” I make blah dollars, give up your house, give up your kids, get a job. ” Give me a break! Get a life Marcus, at $30 an hour, you can rent one at least. You obviously have no kids. Whatever you line of work is, you are way over paid, amd the stress that you are putting yourself through just to fight people trying to live is pathetic. I'm sure that those corporate heads at AIG worked so hard when they tanked the economy. Yay republican party self interest. Continue to inform your representatives on the Hill, you make Palin look like Stephen Hawkins.

Now that I have your attention, I can expect the full tirade fo crap from you. Feel free to do so, though I may have to give you change for your two cents.

Oh and about your job. There is a little known secret fact that most people don't know. The republicans favor tax reductions for businesses and free trade agreements with other countries that can take jobs from here and outsource them to other points of the globe. Software, hardware, tech service, website development, etc anything that can be do cheaper elsewhere will leave the US. And if that happens, and it happens too fast, there will be no way to recover those jobs. Oh, wait… that already happened.

Good for you. Have a cookie.

Now, why is it that you and Martina are so concerned about our homes? Do you own a bank? Are you a bank lover? Do you secretly wish you had a home yourself? Did your daddy own a bank and you miss the childhood rolling around the money bin while visions of forclosures danced in your head?
And what about our children? Are you a pedophile and want to take them in? Is your sperm count low? Are you really concerned about the kids? I think children would value the struggle of a parent trying in a tough time. But maybe they should show your posts so they can see just how cynical and self involved the republican'ts really are. Turn in your homes, put your kids up for adoptions, put your stuff on the streets. Do you even believe that yourself?

Folks here is the latest news for today, February 22. The Senate is thinking about giving a 15 DAY jobless benefit extension. This would take care of the February 28th dedline worry. The 15-day extension would give lawmakers more time to enact a longer fix, they say. But they were scorned by consumer advocates, who want benefits extended through 2010.

“The extended benefits program will be needed for another year at least, so a 15-day extension makes no sense,” said Ross Eisenbrey, vice president of the Economic Policy Institute. “Extending the program for only 15 days will force the states to twist themselves into knots to restart the program while simultaneously preparing to shut it down again. This is waste and abuse.”

So this leaves the unemployed running out of time with the February 28th dedline looming up in a few days.

While our Senators are haggling it out once again with those who disagree with the Senators measyly help again.

So what I am thinking here is the Senators may get tired of arguing and may just junk any help for the unemployed. And there goes our February 28th dedline.

So maybe it would be smarter to except the 15 day benefit extension. At least a bird in hand is better than two in a bush as they say.

And then it gives us some breathing time to work on a longer extension plus more Tiers.

What does everyone think about this.

Here is the latest on the jobless benefits. A 2-week, stop-gap jobless extension is sought. Harry Reid wants to extend existing unemployment benefits and the COBRA health insurance subsidy two weeks to March 15, so it will buy time while he works on a bill for a longer extension.

They say it is unclear when the unemployment and COBRA extensions will be considered.

Thanks for paying my way. And if you think that you did, you're more delusional then we all think. I would have to go with the years of taxes that I paid into for emergencies like this. But if it wasn't such a dire need to continue these benefits, then they wouldn't have past the last 4 extentions. But you supported the bailout of the banks who wouldn't think twice about running you into bankruptcy would you? Of course not. That's the America you envision. Now that I've said my peace, you may continue your rants. Please feel free to contact your reps and tell them that you personally will not stand for more extensions.

We can all now hold our heads up a little higher knowing that people like you exist. An internet coward who likes to bash women, while talking out of their ass.

Here is the latest news as of February 23rd. Harry Reid has now decided to extend jobless benefits till December. Reid is talking to GOP leader Mitch McConnell about what to include in legislation to help the long-termed unemployed, and to extend several expired tax breaks. Reid wants to pass two measures. The first is a 30 day extension of jobless aid. The second would be a broader and longer term measure suggesting a full year extension of unemployment benefits.

Now folks lets hope they get this passed.

Folks I have been posting for months about an idea I had about the unemployed across the nation joining toghether into one big organization. Similar to what the Unions do. I posted this all over the internet on news blogs and etc.

So here is the good news I found today.

Someone has now started this idea a month ago.

Click on the link below to bring up the new website for the Unemployed.

Laid Off? Join 31 million unemployed Americans – UCubed — Home
That's what UCubed is here to do: Help you and 31 million other Americans organize, work together and get back to work. Let UCubed help you connect. …
http://www.unionofunemployed.com/

And they also fight for your unemployment benefits.

And Angie you can still start one of these Unemployment organizations yourself.

Does not matter how many of these type organizations there are.

And if you form it as a non-profit, you will be exempt from taxes I believe.

Just ask your attorney about this.

Well it seems that the republicans really don't care( would like to use another phase, but…) if people end up homeless, on welfare, or becoming criminals just to survive.

Last night they passed the Patriot Act, which means that the government wants to continue spying it's people, but refuses to help them. Now Kyl wants to add a cut to Estate Tax to the unemployment extension bill. WTF! So multi milliionaires can save on taxes but the people that need a break the most are tossed aside. Way to go Senator Kyl of Arizona, the minority whip is now whipping the people that he serves. But it's the people that line his pocket that he cares about.

Then there's Sen. Bunning of Kentucky. He's trying to block the bill by arguing over how it's going to be funded. His own state's unemployment rate is 10.7%, and I have to say another WTF!

So the republicans know that the extension is needed and they want to tack on anything they can for their own agendas. Or they will stall for as long as they can.

I hope that the people of Arizona and Kentucky really respond to what these reps of theirs are doing.

On a side note, since I'm really tired of the trolls citing whatever nonsense about paying our bills. Let's get a few things straight:

There are no jobs or we would have one as no one wants to struggle paying neccesities.

Our benefits are not tax deductable. We get the same rate of tax as everyone else. So that “I pay taxes so I your bills” sh!t doesn't wash.

If welfare is the next step because there is no extension, your taxes will go thru the roof, as entire families will be bankrolled by the government for food, medical, utilities, etc. Right now it's just the unemployed person that gets the benefits AND STILL PAYS TAXES ON THEM.

If people end up homeless because of the lack of extensions, expect crime rates to go up, more job losses, less consumer confidence, a weaker dollar, and a another possible recession that could make China our new overlords.

It's sad to think that the average person out there doesn't give a sh!t about his fellow man until it hits them in the pocket. There, I've said enough.

Again today Friday February 26th, Senate Republican Bunning Blocks Extension of Jobless Benefits ? – 2 hours ago

Because it would add to the federal budget deficit, he said.

Bunning objected under a Senate rule that allows any single lawmaker to prevent a bill from coming to a vote. Lawmakers can eventually overcome those objections with 60 votes. But this process takes several days. Democrats predicted the bill would be overwhelmingly approved next week. They will work on it this coming Tuesday March 2nd.

I filed my last claim to weeks ago and recieved $1.00 on my card for that week. I just found out today that my unemployment has exhausted, and that congress did not give an extension for people like myself that has exhausted their 4th tier.

Folks here is one reason why there are not enough jobs for Americans. Check this website out. It is called “Numbers USA.” Click on the link below.
http://www.numbersusa.com/ – Cached – Similar

Has Your US Rep. Joined the New 'JOBS CAUCUS' to Give Illegals' Jobs to Americans?

While most politicians talk about jobs but do nothing, growing numbers of U.S. Representatives are joining a new caucus that is pledged to start driving 8 million illegal aliens out of their jobs so they can be filled by unemployed Americans.

Make sure your Congressman has joined the RECLAIM AMERICAN JOBS CAUCUS. This is a Caucus that recognizes that millions of Americans could be put back to work for almost no cost simply by enforcing the law. Thus far, Congress has been paralyzed over whether to go further into deep debt to try to create new jobs. But the at least 8 million jobs held by illegal aliens offer an alternative that is easy on the budget.

Listen to the way the Caucus describes itself and its mission — aren't you ready for some politicians who take unemployment seriously enough to say these things?

There are more than eight million illegal immigrants in the labor force in the United States. In many states, there are almost as many illegal immigrants in the labor force as there are unemployed workers.

Lamar Smith of Texas, Gary Miller of California and Sue Myrick of North Carolina have formed the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus to: raise public awareness of the connection between illegal immigration and unemployment, pressure the Administration to vigorously enforce the laws against the employment of illegal immigrants, work to implement legislation that will protect American jobs from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to make E-Verify mandatory), work to defeat legislation that will put American jobs at risk from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to defeat amnesty).

Let's build this Caucus into a force so that even the news media will have to report that some people think Americans should have jobs before illegal aliens.

I say screw the gov. im not paying a single dime on taxes on my unemployment
They cit off funds and still expect broke people to pay taxes. put me in jail. It will cost them more by doing that. im 45 i have a heart condition from a major heart attack. I have spinal fusion and a herniation above my fusion, also gout, 2 herniations in my neck and the beginings of arthritis. It will cost tax payers more to jail me then make new tiers.

Well Folks here is some good news.

A NEW SITE.. TAKE A LOOK AND GET INVOLVED
Below is a new site that is focused on nothing but the Tier V Extension:

http://tier5.webs.com/

Sign on and start posting on this new site.
Plus get busy again contacting your Representatives again.

Plus contact your Governors, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and President Obama and demand a Tier 5 or tell them millions of jobless Americans who need this Tier 5 will vote them out of office.

There maybe jobs showing up out there, but most of them are going to illegal aliens or foreignors coming here on Visas.

Plus too many people applying for one job.

So millions of American's still need a Tier 5.

HUD does pay anyones mtg or rent until you apply and wait and then maybe qualify. You just might, but it could take years. Larger states even longer. Its an option but its not their in the immediate future. And social services the same way…you don't walk in and walk out with a check. Its another option but it doesn't go down as easy as the one with madcow diesease claims.

And nobodys going to pay your mtg when your behind…if that was the case the foreclosure situation would have never happened. Bottom line is no their really isn't an angel.

Ah the mack is back. Missed your inane comments but opinions are like assholes…

Since you like to be informed any news on the creation of jobs or the bettering og the market? No, didn't think so. Unemployment is still where is was a month ago, thought the number doesn't paint the whole picture.

And how the hell is your phone bill more than $325 a week?!? Is that 325 in US dollars and are you taking 325 yen. I would suggest you put down whatever you are smoking as it's making you hallucinate. And if I'm wrong please look into switching carriers as the one you have saw you coming.

You can say what you like as you do, but I never geard someone so wrong about a topic that they seem to know so much about. Remember it is better to appear the fool and remain quiet…

If nothing happens with an extension for the long term unemployed then the impact it will have will only show once the numbers roll in with welfare, homeless, crime, and suicide rates. Maybe there won't be a need for bloggers opinions anymore either. Tsk tsk.

The ONLY true way to get results is to continue discussing the issue and continue speaking out — Congress understands UB are required when the job market is nonexistent, but sometimes Congress should be reminded our votes deciding THEIR jobs are as-well on the chopping block. Domestic Product grew $1.90 for every $1.00 the Federal Government paid out. If the Federal Government cutoff benefits to the unemployed and fail to extend UB for the long-term unemployed it would truly be a tragedy for millions of families, children and the GDP.

PELOSI: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail
JCT Confirms Failure to Comply with Democrats’ Mandate Can Lead to 5 Years in Jail
Friday, November 06, 2009

Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

In response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

“H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

– - – - – - – - – -

“If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]

– - – - – - – - – -

“Criminal penalties

Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:

• Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

• Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]

When confronted with this same issue during its consideration of a similar individual mandate tax, the Senate Finance Committee worked on a bipartisan basis to include language in its bill that shielded Americans from civil and criminal penalties. The Pelosi bill, however, contains no similar language protecting American citizens from civil and criminal tax penalties that could include a $250,000 fine and five years in jail.

“The Senate Finance Committee had the good sense to eliminate the extreme penalty of incarceration. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to leave in the jail time provision is a threat to every family who cannot afford the $15,000 premium her plan creates. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative that will lower health insurance costs without raising taxes or cutting Medicare,” said Camp.

According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.

Here is the latest news on the Tier 5. There is a march planned on DC to demand a Tier 5 benefit extension be passed. The media will also be at this Event in DC.
And you should spread the word about this march on DC to as many you can. Post it on blogging sites, news sites and unemployment sites. We need as many people we can get to come to this event.

My husband has been unemployed for 18 months. He has had plenty of interviews but the competition is unbelievable. We would have better luck playing the lotto. The 1500 a month we get in EUE is not enough to even cover our mortgage. UE is worse then low wages it is unlivable. We have 4 kids. We have been paying into UE benefits and Social Security etc for a combined 40 years. This is what we are left with when the economy sinks. Slowly selling off our life to stay afloat.
I sure wish someone would show us how to get one of these jobs the administration has claimed to create.
When the UE runs out this month we will be on our way to joining the gypsy ranks. from middle class to no class….so the adventure continues.

That is strange. When I first posted this about the march people said they got back an immediate reply. Maybe by now they are swamped with emails or else your email did not get to them for some reason. I found the info about the march on a new website. This new website group are fighting to get a Tier 5 benefit extension. They are a good group. And it is free to join. Here is the link to their website: http://tier5.webs.com/

Check them out. I am sure you will like this group. And they can give you more information on the DC march. Plus I hear they are having these marches now in other states too.

Paul,

That is strange the group that is having the march on DC did not reply back to you. Other people told me they got a reply the same day. Maybe they did not get your email. Emails do strange things somethimes. Or maybe by now they are swamped with people contacting them and could not get back to you yet. Send them another email again. And by the way I found this great website were people are fighting for a Tier 5 benefit extension. Check them it out. The link to the website is: http://tier5.webs.com/

The people on this site found the info on the DC march. And maybe they can give you more info on it. The group that is having the march on DC is now getting marches going in other states they say.

Here is some advise for those about to lose their homes. If you are age 62 or older you may qualify for a reverse mortgage. You do not have to be working or have any income to qualify. In fact this is for those who need money and cannot keep up the payments on their homes. Or need money to pay their bills and need income. This could even maybe give you more income then unemployment checks do. And better then welfare in some cases. If you have enough equity in your home this could be your best bet to keep from losing your home and winding up in the street. But warning, look into it carefuly. And only work with an honest loan company or H.U.D. with this. Check out the website link below for more info on this. Top Ten Things to Know if You're Interested in a Reverse Mortgage …
Reverse mortgages are becoming popular in America. HUD's Federal Housing Administration (FHA) created one of the first. The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage …

Here is latest news on Tier 5 benefit extension.
Call Nancy Pelosi’s office and ask for Wendell. Please also call Jim Mc Dermott’s office (Switchboard number: 1-888-245-0215) Ask for the creation of a Tier V program. They have said they may work on extending the maximum number of weeks of unemployment insurance benefits to 125 weeks for states with high unemployment. Let's join together and make our voices heard as one that we are in desperate need of this extension.
We need people to flood them with calls as soon as possible.

Folks,
Here is some good news. A lady who was unemployed has now started her own radio show about the unemployed. Besure and listen to the show and call in about your jobless problems and talk about needing a Tier 5.

I have launched my own RADIO SHOW:
The name is Jobless talk. My 1st test show is a 1/2 hour TEST segment at !:30 California time TODAY. Callers are welcome at 1 (347) 857-2884

If it works out I will be doing an hour show twice per week all about the plight of the Jobless and what Washington is NOT doing to help us.

I was laid off work almost 3 years ago (6-4-07) as a credit manager. I was already 68 years old at the time and just turned 71 on April 18, 2010….I was working because I needed the income….I have not had one response to a resume i have sent out….(Who is going to hire a 71 year old man)….My health is good and I feel like working but nobody wants me…..not even part time…..I was told by my next to last employer that I was the reason their health insurance rates were so high…I was about 61 at that time….after leaving that job i talked with an employment attorney and told I didnt have a case (after paying him approximately $11,000.) There is nobody to turn to for help….I dont qualify for food stamps or any type of government assistance (heat assistance or anything else). My house needs extensive work but I cant afford to do it and cant get help with that either……Now there is no extension of unemployment benefits for people like me. But the people making the decisions about extending benefits are professionals (mostly attorneys) who are financially secure so why should they care about the ordinary people…..There is only one recourse for people like me……VOTE AGAINST ANYONE CURRENTLY IN ANY POLITICAL OFFICE, LOCAL OR NATIONAL AT EVERY ELECTION!!!.

We, the REAL long term unemployed need the Congress and President Obama to come up with a Tier V. We have been left out completely. No one is taking about us the ones that have been unemployed and unable to find a job any kind of job for almost 2 years. We need HELP NOW!! A Tier V is necessary for us to survive, be able to put food on the table, buy medicine. We are not beggers. We were working people who lost our jobs. I am tired of looking for any kind of job. There is nothing out there particularly for people like me 62 yrs old. Yes, I have an immense amount of experience as a legal secretary, but I have applied and gone to the few interviews that have respondended to the hundreds of resumes I have sent out. As soon as they see me in person, (and I don't look 62) but they can figure it out, they tell me “we will keep you in mind”. Of course, they never call back. We are productive, hard working people. I much prefer to be working than have to beg the Government to extend unemployment payments for us. In other words a TIER V and soon, or there are going to be hundreds of thousands of us out on the street as beggers, homeless people. Please don't look the other way, because the longer you all let this problem go on the worst is going to be for you and for us, who are in desperate need of HELP.

Folks,
Here are two good websites. You can become a member for free. Both are a lot of help to the long term unemployed. Both have radio shows too that help the unemployed. They are both getting news reporters interested in their websites and radio shows. They have had several news reporters as guests on their shows. These reporters are trying to help the long term unemployed by writing articles about a Tier 5 is needed. Here is the links to the websites: http://www.tier5.webs.com
and http://joblessunite.yolasite.com/

The radio shows are called “Unemployment Roundtable.” The link to the show is: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/tier5/2010/04/19/u…

And the other radio show is “Jobless Talk.” And the link to that show is: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/paladinette

These people are accomplishing more for the unemployed than any other website or group.

I think it is so unfair that they are not including people who have been out of work over 99 weeks. What to they suggest we do? The longer your out the harder it is to find work. Now they are extending benefits and us 99 ers as they call it are screwed. That is not fair. What about us and our families? Is Obama going to let us move into the white house with him and his family. I am sure he is eating steak while we eat hamburger helper if we are lucky. I hope all you 99ers out there open your mouth and stand up for yourself we deserve a tier 5 with this economy and they know it they are just holding out on us and that is cruel.
