Unemployment Extension Bill Coming Today

By
Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 10:33 am

So says the office of Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), who heads the Senate Finance Committee.

The bill would extend the filing deadline for the existing tiers of emergency unemployment benefits — not to be confused with the creation of additional tiers — through the end of 2010. Under current law, that deadline will arrive at the end of May, threatening to lock hundreds of thousands of jobless Americans into their current tier of benefits without the option of reaching the next level.

The Baucus bill — which will be released jointly by the House Ways and Means Committee — also includes emergency funding to extend COBRA benefits, to prevent Medicare doctors from being hit with a huge pay cut June 1, and to extend a tax credit encouraging mining companies to promote worker safety.

Additionally, the bill would “increase or eliminate” the cap on the Oil Spill Liability Trust fund, which is currently $1 billion.

Democrats will want to pass this package quickly (and the June 1 deadline on some of these provisions begs their urgency). But the bill has a long road ahead, as the appetite for deficit spending, particularly in the Senate, is at an historic low. And if Sen. Bob Bennett’s primary loss in Utah offered any warning to lawmakers up for re-election this year, it’s that voters — at least in some areas — have lost that spending appetite as well.

Tier 5 is needed and this bill does not address that. I am sure that Americans that “have lost that spending appetite” are not apposed to UNEMPLOYMENT benefits. We are more so looking at the bail outs that big business got and then gave out huge bonuses! Good God, you really think that Americans are opposed to helping out their neighbors? Is it more likely that we are pissed off about Corporate Bail outs that went to bonus, TARP funds that were given to banks and they used that 'free money” to buy bonds and make profits off that rather then lending it to small businesses?

Really, this is the voice from the Media?

Support unemployment with the other 28,000 that have sent their voice to Congress.

PLEASE READ THIS AND HELP… Congress needs to Remove the High Unemployment Period restrictions and the deadline on Tier IV first, and then add a 5th tier that is not connected to the unemployment rate, or is at least tied to the UNDEREMPLOYMENT rate. OVER HALF OF THE STATES HAVE NO TIER IV because there unemployment rate is less than 8.5%.
You CAN NOT qualify for Tier IV (EB), IF your state is at 8.5% average unemployment or less for 3 months. These rates are adjusted on very subjective data, based on estimated migrant and seasonal farm workers and as people run out of benefits, they are no longer considered unemployed, and FALSELY drop the Unemployment rate.
The individual states unemployment rate does not matter if you are one of the people that has never been without a job, never drawn unemployment before, are trying your best looking hard for a job everyday, and are still on the verge of losing your home and being on the street with no income. Everyone please contact your politicians and local news channels until this gets the proper attention. Call and write every day. This last bill is nothing more than a deadline extension with huge restrictions tied to the unemployment rate. Just lip service during an election year.
I still can not understand why, while hundreds of thousands lose benefits each week, the Senate wants to draw a fiscal line in the sand over unemployment benefits! Two unfunded wars, generous bank and corporate bailouts, and unfunded tax breaks are not a problem for Congress, but once you get unemployment funding on the table then all kinds of fiscal responsibility come to bear. While the President and Congress are throwing in to save the world, the unemployed are helping the economy that he is trying to repair…by spending their checks. Moody’s Economy.Com economist shows us the statistics. For every dollar that the government spends on the unemployment line, $1.63 of economic activity is created. I bet we as tax payers, do not get a 63% return on investment from the banks, the auto industry, or Greece!!!!!!!!!

I have heard that the politicians, on both sides of the isle, want the UI benefits to lapse. Even though people would still be unemployed, they would fall off of the unemployment roles, thus making the unemployment rate APPEAR to be lower. This allows the states to deny Tier IV or EB benefits. The politicians are playing political games with our lives. Lets tie up their phone lines and make appointments to bring their offices to a stand still until they listen !!!!!!!!!

I just got an email from my representative from Louisiana and he sent this “As you may know, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3548, the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2009, on November 05, 2009, with my support. This bill provides for a fourteen week extension of emergency unemployment compensation for workers in all 50 states and an additional six week extension in states with unemployment rates exceeding 8.5%. This bill passed both chambers of Congress with strong bipartisan support, and was signed into law by the President on November 6, 2009.

I was unable to support this legislation when it was first considered by the House as Louisiana workers were excluded from the extension of emergency benefits. I am happy that through my efforts, and the efforts of my colleagues from other states which were also excluded, the legislation was improved and will now be extended to all unemployed workers.”
So I think that means the we will all be getting tier 4 not sure about a tier 5

What I am confused about is the fact that the politicians keep using our “deficit” spending as a reason to object to extensions of unemployment, yet are willing to spend on things that will not and do not help the American people. Those of us who are unemployed are also voters – it's time for them to think about that and concentrate on helping us and stop tacking other things onto bills that have to do with unemployment. Whether they want to recognize it or not, it continues to be the single most important domestic issue for ALL of them to think about. I have added my name to every petition I can about this issue but it doesn't seem to mean anything to the guys in Washington. It's time for them to wake up and smell the roses. If they think bailing out Corporate America and other countries are the answer they have blinders on. It is the everyday Joe who needs their support. They also need to develop a stimulus that creates jobs not just for a select group but for a broad range of industries. Our roads aren't the only thing that needs work done on them.

I have copied, signed and forwarded the 99ers petition for addition of a Tire V you mentioned here, but with one change to the figures that indicate a 6:1 ratio of applicants to openings.

BLS figures currently indicate that there are 16 million totally unemployed and another 11 million that are underemployed; that is a total of 27,000,000 seeking full time employment. With only 290,000 jobs filled last month, that is a 93:1 ratio.
I do not buy into the lie that there is any existing significant quantifiable data which indicates the volume of unemployed that have ceased seeking positions. This argument appears to me to be total conjecture, because the only means of knowing would be by the individual’s filing of job searches. Once benefits funding expires, individuals no longer report searches.

Furthermore, a recent Gallup Poll was produced for major marketing firms and corporations which was one of the largest polls that Gallup has ever done. This supports my stated BLS figures identically. The general purpose of this poll was to more clearly identify current market conditions for these firms, so they can more accurately forecast and adjust sales directions and dollar predictions.

Our government needs to get real. In economics, the flow of money does not trickle down from the financial firms; it starts at the point of purchase, the consumer. A tier V extension is needed to give sustenance to the revitalization of our economy. Our economy has to be on firm ground first and stable, otherwise it will lead to worldwide destabilization and then wars in Europe and Korea.

First of all, no one of authority is going to read these comments so you are just venting to other unemployed people. Secondly, why the heck are people fighting for a tier 5?!!

If they did make one, it would only be for like 6 weeks or something which is good for like one month rent or whatever. If you are down to your last month rent with no job prospects, that assistance isn't going to do jack for you. Especially all the energy you are putting into asking for money lol. Use that energy to get a job or move somewhere that will hire you. Jobs aren't impossible to get everywhere, only in some places.

Anyway, not to kick you while you are down because I am unemployed too but complaining here is pointless. Write these comments to your congressman and not in this posting section.

99% of the people who comment here are so satisfied with themselves leaving a comment here, they never bother to make the statement where it counts which is to a state/gov't officials email. Use common sense geez!!

There are people, much older than I'm sure you are, that are having more trouble than you can begin to comprehend. There have been suicides and serious bouts of depressions over this economy. Please do yourself a favor and please stop posting on blogs, go out and “Use that energy to get a job or move somewhere that will hire you” since you seem to have it all figured out. So go ahead, get a job, and please stop embarrassing yourself on these blogs. Thanks.

Learn how to read, I said if you can't pay your rent, a few weeks of benefits isn't going to save you. So yes, common sense will tell you not to focus and cry about this 5th tier nonsense.

Let me tell you something before you open your mouth again, if you have gone 99 weeks without finding a job, you deserve to be homeless straight up and down. So, instead of telling me to get a job, you should lead by example. It is your opinion that there are no jobs elsewhere, get off your ass and you will see for yourself that there are jobs out there if you look outside the box.

They might not be jobs you want and you might have to relocate but it can be done so stop passing it off as “non-sense” Your ignorance isn't hurting me, you are only hurting yourself. If people want to commit suicide, let them. It is their life and if they want to take the easy way out, don't expect me to shed a tear for them.

You expect the gov't to make your problems go away, you make me sick. I don't need job advice from someone who hasn't been able to find one in 99 weeks ok Einstein? There are jobs available where I am now. I suggest you move if it's been that long and no one will hire you, or you should take a class or something.

If I was unemployed for as long as you, I would be bitter myself I give you that but stay in your lane, that bull won't fly with me. You are complaining to deaf ears in this forum because no one of authority is listening and you are too dumb to understand that fact so take your own advice and stop posting here. Embarrassing myself is something that is your opinion, I could say the same to you but I am sure you already know you did

You don't know nothing, being unemployed for 3 years with 22 years of experience. All a person can do is make a full time job looking for a job, and the jobs you apply for has 12 other people to it. Being 55 years old doesn't help either. Having applied for small jobs and being over qualified for those positions. Down to the last pennies and all the bills being do.
NO way of paying them without money. Calling on follow ups just to find out the position is on hold because of certain reasons. This economy overall stinks and these idiots are fighting each other. We will all someday face the judgement from God the Almighty. I pity these people. Right now I just wish the Lord would come and take us all away from this world. This would be the best thing that would ever happen.

If there are jobs available where you why are you unemployed? You must be one of those people that give the unemployed a bad name – such as lazy or milking the system. You evidently enjoy being unemployed so why are you here. No one expects you to shed a tear for anyone who would take their own life, as cruel and heartless people do not cry for anything. So why don't you go and take one of those jobs in your area and leave the people alone who just need someplace to vent.

I am one of those long term unemployed. I can't believe the rhetoric of people saying there is something wrong with you if you can't find a job – they say you are either stupid or lazy. There was one study where the author cited Pittsburgh in the 80s when Reagan sold the Steel Workers out & an industry collapsed. Her argument against extended benefits was that there was no Emergency Unemployment Benefits available at the time and a percentage of the unemployed got jobs within 6 months (or something like that). But, as with most conservatives who twist the facts, she neglected to mention that Pittsburgh had a huge migration to other states for employment and particularly the South which wasn't unionized. Pittsburgh had a population drain. She also failed to mention the difference in today's recession as compared to Pittsburgh in the 80s. This recession and the job loses now are across the board and not limited to one industry such as Steel. When you pick & chose your statistics you can defend any thesis. Furthermore, when there is 1 job opening for every 5.5 job seekers (and that doesn't include those who are not counted, so it's much higher than 5.5 job seeker per job opening). How anyone can assume that there are enough jobs for everyone who wants to work is beyond me. If anyone knows a part of the country where employers are desperate for workers let me know. Another factor that is overlooked is location. What about the rural areas where closing one grocery store affects an entire town etc These remarks aimed at the unemployed pegging them as lazy are more indicative of the person's attitude rather than based on fact. It's baseless prejudice. It's also offensive when so many people are truly hurting. And the recent legislation does nothing for the hardest hit, those who lost their job early on and whose benefits have expired. There were no benefits extended to help them and this is a real tragedy. They are now uncounted – in PA, the unemployed who exhausted tier IV are now going on 3 weeks without income. And currently there is no legislation pending to provide additional aid. This is just not right & it's curious why this group of jobless workers have been abandoned. There is currently a grass roots effort to bring attention to the 99ers who need Tier V. Until the jobs are created we are in dire need of some additional benefits. The other issue was that the long term unemployed were misled by the media into thinking the legislation being written had included some aid for them which it didn't. They were just cut off. None of the Senators are willing to address this issue and even NELP who is supposed to advocate for the unemployed seemed to have written them off citing that there is no political will to add additional weeks or tiers. Rather than extending the emergency program for only a few until the end of the year which is what is being talked about, something must be done even if that means the date would have to be moved up a month or so to provide additional weeks or another Tier with the hopes that there will be job creation down the road and the situation can be reassessed. Well they will know I am not to lazy or stupid to vote for and of them on election day.

Common Sense:

You are purely and idiot. And you have no common sense. You are a self righteous person with no care in the world but for yourself. You obviously don't understand or are not willing to understand that their are 15 million unemployed Americans and only 2.5 million jobs out there right now. And those 2.5 million jobs may not even be filled due to the downturning economy.

It has nothing to do with wanting or NOT wanting a job; it's purely who will hire you. Many have degrees and a fast food joint or any minimum wage payer shrugs at the people that are too qualified. Yes, they can lie on their resume to get it, but most likely the employer will figure out just by looking at them that they are too qualified.

When a person moves to another state that may or may not have as high of an unemployment rate, they are taking those jobs away from those states that should be looking towards the people to fill those in that state! You are not worth the print on a piece of paper!!

Unfortunately for you, what goes around comes around, and you will, believe me find yourself in an unfortunate, very unfortunate situation. And when you do, you will then eat your words!!

Have fun being who you are; you sound like a very unhappy and lonely person!!

The governing body does not work for the real people anymore so stand up and work for yourself.

I have been unemployed 2 years, have looked for work the entire time, including “out side of the box” and can definitely prove it as I am required-court ordered through Child Support services to look for work and send them proof each month and haven't gotten an interview yet. That includes out of state/area where I am located. I have been homeless for the past 2 months and can say that I know that those who have and are employed couldn't give a damn about me or any of the rest of us. I suggest that those of you whose benefits are exhausted, as mine are, concentrate on survival. No one is going to help us in this supposedly Christian nation (which is really a hedonistic. selfish society, people care for their own and no one else) and eventually this society will crumble. The nations that hate us are sitting back and waiting for the disintegration. Me, I'm just going to hold on as long as I can to life and when the good Lord takes me, I only hope my kids will be able to somehow make it through the dark days ahead. American dream my ass. Only if you fit a certain slot.. Here's some news for you folks who think the long term unemployed are lazy and deserving of the Hell we got handed to us by greed. Death comes to us all. You can't take a thing with you and all your hoarding and greed will surely be judged by the Almighty. But there is good news…you can help your fellow men/women/children while you still have a chance. because no one knows the hour of their demise. Good luck and God bless to you all.

The whole tier thing is too arbitrary. Everyone should get the same amount of weeks. But all these extensions need to be backed up with actual job creation, starting with more effort to bring manufacturing jobs back as everything in my house is made in China! Congress should levy a high tax and tarriff on those Anti-Americans that create businesses and personal fortunes without creating jobs for their fellow citizens. This is at the root of the high unemployment we have. I doubt China has the percentage of unemployed that we do.

The continued depersonalization of the “unemployed” is used so that others don't have to deal with the difficult knowledge of a painfull situation that exists foe some in this country. If people felt others pain we would have a more social society and less depersonalization and hence degradation of humanity here in America

Yes I think that's a good idea.That will be a demostration of how the government is acting of leaving out of the bus to millions of unemployed in the country.Today the Congress will pass a bill with another extension,but only for deadline to those who have still weeks on their unemployment insurance,that bill will not add more weeks for those who exhausted all the benefits by means the 99ers.

38 states claim employment is rising, but unemployment rate is up to 9.9%.

And this http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100014240527487…

New unemployment claims are up 471,000.

How can you trust any media these days when all you get is conflicting stories and misleading stats.

Does anyone buy that unemployment is getting better? I sure don't and I am not unemployed.

Because the official unemployment rate (that 9.9%) is not an actual reflection of the number of folks without jobs. It’s based on the number of folks without jobs who are actively seeking work. So when the economy begins improving (like it is now), it spurs more and more long-term unemployed people — many of whom had given up hope for awhile (and therefore weren’t being counted) — to return to the job hunt. That, in turn, increases the size of the official pool of jobless workers. And if the pool is increasing faster than businesses are hiring, then the unemployment rate will go up, even as jobs are being created.

I have been unemployed since Oct 2007. We all keep saying we need a Tier V, but no one hears us. The Media doesn't pay attention. The government says that we have had enough. Yet we don't do anything, but post on these blogs. Why can't we all work together as one unit, and protests at all the media stations across the country on the same day. Wouldn't you think that should get some attention?

First off -Let me say I am NOT trolling, a LOT of the misleading #'s are the fault of the people who have run out of benefits-Due to plain laziness. When they run out-and stop applying every two weeks because they wont recieve anything, then they are uncounted-in efect “no longer unemployed” its certainly an imperfect setup but if your state is at say 8.3 and all those people had continued the checkin every other monday-the rate would count them. When you stop because the benefits have run dry-you are hurting everyoe else as well as yourself.

Does anyone know if Congress is addressing an extension for those of us who started unemployment sometime during the months of November and December 2009? What I heard from my state unemployment office is that there may not be any extension for people who fall in my category.

If I were a senator, I would vote for a tier 5, but just because someone is opposed to it, the shouldn't be slammed with invective. Many people who are EMPLOYEED are feeling the weight of this economy as well, and there is no bailout for them. Nearly everyone is hurting! I know small business owners who are hanging on by the skin of their teeth, waiters and waitresses who are hurting because not nearly as many people are eating out. Theses people need money for food and shelter too! We all have to weather the storm. Our Grandparents and great grandparents endured, and we must also.

But those employeed but hurting people are struggling right now too! EVEN WITH THE 4 CURRENT TIERS in place!! And they are STILL in a dire situation. So where does their help come from? How is tier 5 going to help them?

BTW, even if your statement was true, how is it going to help someone who owns a manufacturing based business? How will it help an art gallery owner? If someone on benefits uses them for luxuries, then they should not be getting those benefits. The situation is complicated and people opposed to the continued extensions should not be painted as demons.

ADDRESSED TO: COMMON SENSE

I don't like to judge others, but somehow you have never been humbled! That's yet to come in your life. When that happens, maybe you will have compassion for those Americans who are hurting and victimized by our rich and selfish wealthy population, that feel they should not have to contribute to those who are in need. I am from a wealthy, Christian background, that migrated from Europe. My family were among the Pioneers that were truly Americans. Everyone helped each other out during the great depression and gave of themselves, property, money, food, built homes for others, and shared their compassion for their fellow Americans. They didn't pile their wealth in their own pockets, just because they felt they were better people due to their money status. That doesn't make you a good citizen or person. I have worked and retired from financial institutions and government jobs. I have the knowledge and experience of what has and is happening now. I think your mind is still in the 70's. The small businesses, large corporations, etc. are closing down. I have seen and participated in Job Fairs when a total of 20 positions would be available, while thousands of anxious Americans would be in line applying for those few jobs. I would appreciate it, if you can lower yourself, go out and see what is happening in the workforce. Those that have lost their jobs should not be labeled as LAZY! Unfortunately, things are going to get worse……..be mindful!

By the way, I predicted this happening 6 years ago and have been writing to our Congressmen, Senators, President Bush and Obama since 2004 I also email them all on a regular basis….just get back either auto general replies or no responses at all. I have thought about chartering buses to Washington D.C. and make reservations for all those who want to see our Congressmen (Republican or Democrat) in person. Once we have voted our government representatives in their offices…they do as they please and don't listen to the very American people who have voted them in and pay their salaries, pensions, etc.

Too many Americans are wondering why you decide to give money to foreign countries and not to the unemployed Americans.

If you are employed, but still struggling, whether an employee or business, think about those you have applied for whatever job there is, but can't get hired……lost their jobs, homes, cars, and have no food. Those who have been able to keep their jobs due to the business that is somehow hanging in there…they are very, very fortunate. However, there are millions of Americans that don't have anything left. My parents and grandparents were wealthy immigrants from Europe, but back then they shared their wealth, property, food and helped build homes for those in need. During the Great Depression there were “Soup Lines” all over the place. But, if you know correctly, many of the super wealthy stock holders committed suicide by jumping out of windows, because they lost their MONEY! So, don't think it wouldn't have been worse, if those wealthy people who had compassion for those who were starving hadn't helped their fellow Americans out. Also, that's when “Welfare” was developed by the U.S. Government. Now we are in a GREAT, GREAT DEPRESSION. Back then you didn't have mortgages on homes, you built them yourself; you didn't have debts from creditors, etc. All you had to do was pay your taxes. This is something much, much bigger!! We need to help the hungry, tired and homeless….that's what America should be about. I'm fortunate to be retired, but I'm ready to fight for my suffering American neighbors. God Bless all of us.

Do me a favor, if you haven't already), look up the Congressmen and Senators representing your State on the Internet and send them emails. I have been doing this for 6 years, consistently, and you will be very upset in what you get back in response (all automated/thanking you for the email, but not addressing the subject matter). I have also mailed written letters, but their letters are formatted general response letters they send back that also doesn't answer questions and doesn't relate to anything you are writing about. I have even called via phone…..I had to leave a message on either a voice mail or if a person answered, I was asked to leave a message. Never did I receive any answers or acknowledgement of why I had called. When I started doing this years ago….and still now, I wanted to fire them all for not doing their job. I wish I had saved all of my emails starting 6 years ago, but this last year I am keeping records. Let me know what kind of responses you get! Copy and paste them to us so you can show the rest of us proof of deafened ears from our Government Representatives. It is NOT GOOD!!

Amen to that; Wall Street sucker punched us, the banks, corporations, all jumped in too, by sending all of the old, good jobs over anywhere, and then, lining their pockets with $100M dollar perks, and they are still not satisfied.
It is like a fight, being jumped, and no one to help you.
I have 2 degrees in Business (BA/MA) and have looked every week, 1-2 resumes out, if I am lucky.
I get no responce, and the few I do, 500-1000 people have applied; how do I get in? Who can live on that crappy Wall-Mart wage? Oh yeah, people who do not have an eduumacation, and or, are not career motivated, and or, do it, just for the extra money.
I am 50, well educated, 2 Degrees, and out in the cold. I feel like I am living, a nightmare on elm street, and Fredie is just around the corner.
I thought, if we followed the rules, play the honest game, we would never have an issue in my America, plus I worked hard too; oh yeah, that is for suckers.
If you steal your way to the top (Wall Street), shaft your fellow man, sucker punch them, and laugh all the way to the bank, you win the, boy with the most toys game; shame, shame, and double shame..
You know what I say; It is not my job to Judge mankind, but God will; all you you in that, “chasing the money game at all costs”; remember, you will be tossed in the lake of fire, for 1000 years; now that is the correct payback.
If you do not, change your evil, wicked ways, (everybody else) your fate awaits,and someday, I'll be with my maker, on those streets paved of gold, enjoying the love, one can never imagine; oh yeah, I'll be laughing all the way to the heaven bank.

I lost my job in June 2007. I took advantage of the free computer training class at the job center. Then i went to and passed a tractor trailer course just to get practice how to shift a truck because i never knew how to drive a standard. I wanted to get a b truck driver job. So i took the a training to get 8 more weeks of shifting practice because b training only gives you a week of shifting training. And now if you don't have any experience, you won't get hired anywhere where i live. I have an 18 year old felony of which was the only time i was ever in trouble. I cannot find employment just because of it. Anywhere i go to apply for a job now, you have to pass a backround check. I am out of 99 weeks since April. I stopped paying all my credit card bills. I keep getting phone calls. I am tired of explaining all the time about my situation to them. There are a lot of people out there that can't pass a backround check and can't get hired and need a tier 5. Nobody mentions our situation. And friends of mine i know that never lost their jobs say they should stop extending unemployment. They don't even bother to put themselves in our shoes because they never lost their jobs like us. Someday they will get a wakeup call, and they will be in our shoes like a thief in the night.

This is news of great proportions if the people in government can ignore us about this then they will ignore us on other things. I want to also know who counts in America. Is it not said we the people and we the people are by the way side now. That we the people can’t help the politicians so we are not herd. Someone in the news doesn’t agree on the 99’s so, they don’t report it. This is a joke, the loss of jobs are worst than 1948, people look at the graphs. I blame our news people and than our government and take a look at the petition passed to the congress on the 5th tier. One of the most signed petition and nothing was reported and they ignore us in congress. You tell me who is running our government and who do they care about.

I go to school 40 hrs a week and study another 30 hrs. I have a BS in Industrial Management, but couldn't find a job unless I want to move to China, since that is where all of manufacturing has moved. I am in LPN school currently & will have my license in August. My unemployment tier 4 runs out in 2 weeks and can't even find an $8/hr job in this area. Again I hope you don't end up like the millions of unemployed and have people keep telling you to get off the couch and get a job. You must be a Republican and support NAFTA and feel secure in your job. I wouldn't feel to secure since I believe eventually we will be a third world country in the next few years.

The shrinking rate of the middle class is growing fast. We have a great problem and maybe next year when you go to that resort you will see less people or maybe you can’t because you are in that situation as us people who complained and nobody cared. Is the 5th tier going to help our nation problems? I do know that if we keep hitting our pocket book that maybe the next time the government won’t let all the jobs go away. The people who are getting hurt are people who worked all their life, who sent people to the moon, who took little and made a lot , and who believed in the American dreams which is too work hard and live free with their accomplishments.

I think most Americans are misinformed regarding the need for a Tier 5. I only received 52 weeks, I need a Tier5 so I can continue my benefits which ran out in March. I am a single mom, a college graduate and also attended Law School. The state in shich I live in does not have a Tier 4, our unemployment rate is at 8.3%, they need to be at 8,5% in order to receive a Tier 4. So there are so many facets to the need for a Tier 5, and this seems to escape the media. All that you hear about are the 99ers needing more unemployment.

Most don't have that problem?? If you were able to afford to go to a resort lake and mingle with the rich cats, that's the group you are among. However, since we, the majority of the past working (30-40 yrs) class, and lost our jobs, retirement benefits, homes, medical, etc. – we are the ones who paid into the rich cats pockets and the government. Guess what, when we are gone, you won't be getting any more money from the working class. Only the rich who have stashed their money away will last for a little while. Hope you learn how to grow your own food, create your own electricity, water, gas & sewage, repair the roads, raise cattle and butcher. Yes, we have been doing that all for you. The farmers are going down fast. Grocery stores will close. Hmmm, wonder about restaurants? Enjoy your problem free life until you and our Government try to do without the hard work, production of life needs that we worked so hard to provide for all of you. Good luck to you and those in your group!

I have been talking with Ed Schultz wife Wendy Schultz to get us on the radio show today and the TV show tonight. I need other 99ers out there who are willing to write the Schultz and tell them about their real life stories – no boiler plate letters – just real life details. I just watched the TV broadcast and frankly it was weak! We opened the door with them to talk about this. Now let's keep the door open with our stories. Please email me at inkedhoudini2006@yahoo.com and I will put you in touch with Wendy Schultz. The member of Congress Stabenow they interviewed just talked in circles. She even babbled about small businesses and loans. She may as well of been talking about pruple unicorns. We have our teeth in the media now – don't let loose. Let's get our stories into the Schultz right now so that we can get more TV air time. Let's keep the story alive. Many have written in. We need even more to write in. Even family members of 99ers who are suffering. Thanks.

I doubt my grocery store will be going out of business any time soon. These were not “rich” people, they are comfortable, but they do know how to make money, and we've been doing this for a long time. Its not something that just came to us.

Pay no mind to all the hooverites out there. They have no compassion whatsoever to Americans who are unemployed, down and out and killing themselves as we speak. All they care about is the maximum way to line their own pockets at the least expense to themselves possible and if not, then fight for the bailout otherwise on Capital Hill. Allegiance to God, country and HUMANITY be damned.

Nope, I’m just someone who isn’t going to blame anyone for my own position nor will I cry to my gov’t to fix my personal financial issues beyond what they already generously provide. 99 weeks of benefit is beyond compassionate so stop feeling sorry for yourself please.

I am here because I do what I want and say what I want. Freedom of speech kiddo ;-) Anyway, I have what is known to responsible people as a “savings account” Ever heard of that? I havea heart and love lots of things and lots of people but one thing that does not deserve attention is quitters. Life is a gift so if you commit suicide, that is blatantly offensive. Life is what you make of it. suicide is just retarded. I don’t need advice on what job to take from another unemployed person. You are welcome to apply for the jobs if you want. I’m doing fine thanks. True, you do need a place to vent but if you think 99 weeks of free money is not enough, expect someone to laugh when you ask for more money. It doesn’t take 99 weeks to find a job unless you are not looking outside the box. I don’t care though, vent away. If you don’t want to hear me, don’t reply to my comment and I won’t reply to yours.

I truly enjoyed reading this brain fart of a reply. Your opinion holds no weight. You can call me an idiot and I can call you one. It doesn’t mean anything. If you have an issue with what I said, go cry in the corner. If I was self-righteous, I would not care about people taking 99 weeks of money and expecting more. However, because I am not self centric, I do think it is kinda silly to be so angry about the whole thing.

The only other country that comes close to our unemployment system is Denmark. They offer up to 4 years but that is only because their population is like 5 million while America is like 500 million. With that many people and businesses, you can find a job. You can take out a loan and start a new business, you can take some classes to be better qualified in your career or start a brand new one.

Americans are know for picking themselves up from the boot straps so dude, stop crying. Someone will hire you. Young people quit fast food jobs all the time. They work there for like a year or two so their turn around is perpetually frequent. They would hire you so stop making excuses cry baby. You might not like working there but you can. Just be honest and tell them your goals and situation. Lying about it is stupid. Moving to another state for a job makes it harder on that state but if after 99 weeks of living somewhere, you can’t find a job, newsflash, the well is dry. That state is no longer capable of sustaining it’s current population with gainful employment so it is time to spread the numbers out a bit.

Besides, going someplace new can be interesting. We are all Americans, it doesn’t matter if you go to another state and take a job, just do it. I’m not worth a print of paper? You’re a waste of s*erm ;-) I have a savings account that says I’m worth more than you and I earned every penny so lets not go there mr.crybaby. What is unfortunate for me? From where I’m sitting it looks like you are the one in panic mode, I’m doing just fine.

Oh, and for grammatical accuracy, you forgot to place a comma after the word “then”. I have no idea where lonely and unhappy came from. I don’t logically see how you made that connection from anything I said but I’ll tell you what, your post was thoroughly entertaining thanks for that hehe.

I can just as simply call you a loser too. Nothing you say can change that either so you are just stroking your own ego. It doesn’t mean anything Mr.Wake Up, it holds no weight, zero… You aren’t even talking about anything specifically. It’s like saying you don’t like the color red. Good for you but it doesn’t mean anything you just like to see yourself type. Excuse me if I don’t take career advice from a fellow unemployed person, you might want to worry about your own situation first before playing guidance counselor. It was a very entertaining comment though thanks hehe.

This problem of a Tier V Extension I do not understand. I work lost my job and can not find another one. I have no income because unemployment is exhausted and now I am to being ignored by my government who is under the impression they have done all they can do and we should be finding these jobs that are not their. I am not a lazy low life looking for a hand out from the government. I worked and paid taxes for the past 35 years. I have a Masters and will take any job I am offered because I have a family to take care of. The government needs to MAN UP! How are we suppose to survive? I am so tired of this back and forth bull. If I could I would fire everyone of them. Let them walk a day in my shoes and feel just as worthless.

If you write to gov’t officials, you are the 1% out of the 99% who reaches out where it counts and if you learn how to read properly, I didn’t say “no one” writes to congress. So just because you don’t know how to read or choose to only recall random sentences instead of the entire statement, does not mean I don’t know what I am talking about. You just need to learn how to read instead of skim. 1 month in your home “is” something to scoff at because unless you got a job that same month and are waiting for your first check, you are wasting money for nothing. The smart thing to do would be to check into a homeless shelter with your child about a month or 2 before your benefits run out and save that money while looking for a job while living at the shelter. They are non profit and there to help ya donut. The way you are doing it is not only moronic but also prolonging the inevitable. So, shame on you and there is no need for caps lock because the truth is what it is…

Correction, it is, “Do you “like” the sound of your voice”. “Nlike” is not a word. Oh, and if you don’t have any job prospects or money after 99 weeks of being taken care of, oh man.. nevermind… good luck bro..

This was the first/only logical and intelligent comment I have seen on this forum. Kudos, it was very nice to read your comment and I respect it. I wish more people were like you and as proactive as yourself. I have been humbled in my life though and have picked myself up from my own bootstraps when I had nothing but the shirt on my back so yes, I am humbled and experienced just like yourself. Please do not presume otherwise. I don’t presume to know you so it is only fair.

I am not calling anyone lazy, I am just saying that if you cannot find a job after 99 weeks, something isn’t right because you can get a job doing something and if you think otherwise, you are lying to yourself. It may not pay well and it may not be glamorous but those jobs are out there. I will not get into detail because I already responded to someone further down on the page on that subject. So, if you ride out 99 weeks and have not even a bottom of the barrel job lined up, stop crying with your hand out. I am all for helping anyone that needs it but only if they are willing to do what it takes to survive and do something, take a class, do an internship, get a McDonalds job or anything. Those places have crazy turn around because their core staff are teenagers who quit usually after like a year or so.

I wish our Government and all the fortunate and wealthy people will be humbled to finally come to the aid of all of the suffering unemployed American people. Unfortunately bad things are starting….I was informed of a suicide today…a 45 year old unemployed man hung himself. Also, our crime rate has increased to a frightening level. I'm very concerned, since the robberies and killings are being committed by those who are unable to find jobs. They are now going to the wealthy homes, breaking in, while husbands, wives and children are at home and stealing whatever they can to survive. I call it the “ROBIN HOOD EFFECT”, steel from the rich and give to the poor! I believe this will become worse and the safety of those who are more fortunate may find their lives in danger. Even then, I believe our Government and the more fortunate population won't realize that all that is needed is jobs and financial assistance until the population in need can get back on their feet. We have way to many long term unemployed and not enough jobs to compensate for the amount of those who are without jobs. I guess the Government and those more fortunate will hire body guards and build walls around their homes, rather than help their fellow man. The other big problem is that there will no longer be places to buy food or any other services, because they have all closed down….so they won't have any place to spend their surplus money. We need to realize that in order to survive or be successful in life or business, we need each other in order to sustain and survive. God help us all!

Breaking into homes is not a new concept. These idiots and creeps that attempt that usually do it when nobody is home. It would be too dangerous and they know it, to try something when the owner is around. The affluent don't give in easy. Punks don't get away with things like your describing. You might even be too delusional to understand right now. And again the safeway will not be going out of business anytime soon, whether you're shopping there or not

I'm a unemployed Michigander( long term) which puts me at the bottom of the barrel.My benefits have recently run out and its looking kinda bleak but I still try to not let it get me down though its getting harder,I could sure use the benefits extension but what I really need is a job on unemployment I'm slowly getting poorer and poorer.From what I understand about the debate going on in congress about the extension is not about whether its a good idea or not its about how to pay for it the Republicans want to spend some of the surplus stimulus money that's still sitting there,while the Democrats don't want to use stimulus money and want to borrow the money instead.I see a lot of articles on line talking about the debate in congress they fail to mention this they just say Democrats for it Republicans against it. When in fact the Democrats could use the stimulus money and get it passed right away.
