Reid Introduces New Standalone Unemployment Extension Bill

Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 9:45 am

Here we go again. Last night, Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Max Baucus (D-Mont.), the Senate majority leader and the head of the Senate Finance Committee, introduced a new unemployment extension bill. It is not actually strictly standalone: It includes an extension of the period in which homebuyers can close on a house and claim the homebuyer tax credit, a change agreed to in the House yesterday, and other provisions.

“Folks in Montana and across the nation are struggling to find jobs in this tough economy, and every day these benefits are lapsed is another day Americans worry how they will feed their families while they look for work,” Baucus said in a press release. “I urge my colleagues to stand with us to support American families and restore the unemployment insurance benefits that are often the only lifeline many workers have in this tough economy.”

Reid filed for cloture last night, and is working with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to move the bill today, though Republicans have repeatedly objected to any measure that increases the deficit.

The new bill extends federal unemployment insurance benefits through Nov. 2010, and the closing period for qualification for the homebuyer tax credit to Sept. 30. It is technically a substitute amendment to the killed jobs legislation. Here is a summary of what’s in the bill:

Unemployment benefits: Restarts the emergency unemployment compensation program phased out at the end of May 2010. The program provides up to 53 weeks of extended benefits, depending on the state’s unemployment rate. The measure is retroactive — meaning that Americans who have lost their unemployment checks will be compensated — and goes through November.

Further extended benefits: Restarts funding for further tiers of unemployment benefits to 99 weeks.

Eliminates the penalty for part-time workers collecting unemployment benefits: Gives states the option to let UI claimants keep certain benefits if switching to state benefits would reduce their weekly UI check by at least $100 or 25 percent.

These three provisions cost $33.9 billion over ten years.

Extends the closing date for the homebuyer tax credit: Homebuyers need to have purchased a house by April 30, 2010. Now, they need to close by Oct. 1, not July 1, 2010. The provision is estimated to cost $140 million over ten years.

Change to the Travel Promotion Act (TPA): The Department of Homeland Security was due to fund the Travel Promotion Board by the end of the year. This delays that funding start by a year. This change saves $95 million over ten years.

No, you cannot claim a homebuyer tax credit from prison: Remember all those prisoners claiming the homebuyer tax credit — even when serving life sentences? This allows the IRS to disclose tax return information to prison officials, to help recoup money from fraudulent claims. This raises $6 million over ten years.

Finding money elsewhere: This takes back $94 million in unspent Defense Department funding due to expire on Sept. 30, 2010. This saves $45 million over 10 years.

Ridiculous. One of the best ways to stimulate the economy is through UI benefits. All the money goes DIRECTLY back into the economy. The time to cut spending is not when you’re in the midst of a horrible recession (depression?). We spend $100b in Iraq every month and all that money goes right down the rabbit hole. the UI extension will cost $33b and go directly into the economy. Clete needs to “get real”.

Thank you Baby, Jesus! Now let's just pray they don't find a new way to make a bad situation worse. I've been unemployed since July of last year. I'm not proud of it but it's true. I've cut back on my spending, applied for jobs below what I was making before, but in the end Training classes get canceled, I get told I'm over qualified (I'm 26 and a entry to mid-level Call Center worker for God's sack!), or just like so many other Americans just don't get a call back. I pray, cross my fingers, and do a lil' voodoo chant when a apply for fast food or retail even. Anyway, I'm sure some ideological Elephant will tell me to try Day-labor, but that's his right as an American. That's the beauty of are system you scream your opinion at the top of your lungs and I scream mine. After we hyperventilate we attempt at compromise.

My the grace of the divine watch over you all,

I have been out of work since May of last year. I applied for UC in July of last year and my claim ended last Wednesday… It wasn't much but it covered my rent… now what? I scour the papers, I apply online to at least 3 jobs a day, I contact employers on Craigslist (most turn out to be scams) but have not had one interview in 6 months…. I don't want to beg for government money but at this point it's the only way I can feed my family and pay the bills… Fingers crossed that this is approved!!!!

I have been out of work from Oct. 08. I really really need my checks to continue while I look for work. I just cannot find a job!! I send out resumes daily and have had only 1 interview this year. My resume is done professionally so it's not that. I don't know what else to do. And for those who call us lazy and drug addicts, open your eyes, you are lucky that you still have your job because it could be you next, I would like to be there when karma punches you in the face. We are hard working people who just need help right now, not beggars. I have worked all my life like so many others.

They need to pass this bill. I'm a divorced mom who has been left with nothing and am about to come to the end of my 26 weeks of unemployment and won't be able to support my family unless I get a good job or unemployment is extended until I do. I have a few irons in the fire and intend to make something happen and know its only a matter of time but until then, like the rest of you, I need to keep my family afloat. There are millions of people out here like me and you who have families, too, and none of us care about these political games. I hope everyone remembers what the republicans did come November. Billions for the banks, billions for the car & credit card companies, billions for other countries and the war but NOTHING for the American people? Perhaps we can get Haiti to do a benefit for us…..

Is off-setting some of the costs? So even though it is pay-as-you-go they are saving from somewhere. Or am I not understanding this correctly?

I hope it goes through with out any other crap. But also what about the people that have used all 99 weeks. They ran out of funds in March. It has been about 4 months for them without any hope at all. By now I am sure they are almost homeless if not already and probably have not had a meal as well. Oh my what about there poor kids and babies. It makes me sick to see this going on. Whats one going to do with out the help and support of his fellow country. While they turned there backs on us, we are left to fend like savage beasts and continue to hope and prey and wonder when a job will call upon us. Some world we live in when the government screws most of us if not all of us out of our jobs then has the balls to take vacations and do nothing about it. Or when the do try to do something then someone else has something bad to say about it. Come on you should be ashamed of your self up there in government not even trying to work together for once in your lives to fix this freakish problem you brought on us. To bad you are not in the shoes of the people that are hurting I bet your asses would be moven to make it right then. God bless and god speed to all of you while my last straw is to jump.

I was laid off last year in June, I have been applying and go on interview after interview. Its so many people out of work, until finding a job is like finding a diamond on a mountain. PLEASE pass this bill, we want to work, I wish there was a way that these companies would just hire those that apply for work. Here in Nevada instead of hiring they are still laying off. What are we to do? Its easy for those to say “no” to the bill when they are not on a thin line to being homeless. Americans are in need, we need money to eat and keep a roof over our childrens heads. Please help us!!!!!!! pass the bill.

I posted the above link so you all could read the reply in the article by the screen name DrMaliaL. Clearly her thinking is very flawed and she's rich like only 1% to 10% of Americans. The rich do not take care of the poor in America. They take care of the rich like themselves. The poor are subsidized by EVERYONE that pays taxes, including the person you ordered your lunch from at McDonald's today. Anyway back to the point. This bill NEEDS to be passed. If it isn't passed the economy is going to get much, much worse. The unemployed are NOT lazy system milkers. The fact is there are many more unemployed persons than there are jobs being created. What we are seeing is economic hysteresis, meaning that even though the economy is growing it is still shedding more good jobs than it is creating and the economy will NEVER be the same as it used to be. We are just going to have to learn to live with this idea until someone in the government gets some balls and outright MAKES companies quit moving jobs out of our country and gets control of health care costs and not in a socialistic way. I have been unemployed since Sept 2009 and I can tell you I've busted my butt to try to find a decent living wage job. It's nearly impossible when just a few years ago a period of unemployment would have lasted no more than 60 days. I sincerely hope congress can do something here because if not I see terrible times on the horizon for millions of families and an economy thrown into an all out world wide depression that could last decades.

How/Where do you find out if your state qualifies for the unemployment extension?


Rebecca S
Comment posted June 30, 2010 @ 2:51 pm

My first question is how well is your math skills? I see that it was stated 431,000 jobs have been created out of those 411,000 were temporary census positions!!! There are 15.0 million people unemployed and 6.8 million have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks, where are they to work? There are not enough jobs out there! People are starving and living on the streets now because you and your fellow constituents are finally worried about deficit spending, why can we not help the fellow American but we send aid all over the world and we can't take care of our own.

We are in a crisis situation here there are approximately 643,000 Americans homeless currently with up 1.5 using an emergency shelter or transitional housing, and with the denial of the unemployment bill there could be an additional 15 million in the same tragic circumstance in the very near future. Do you care or worry about the children of these 15 million people? With that being said the actual number of future starving and homeless will have at least doubled and possibly tripled once we add the children in the equation.

There are not enough shelters in our country to house these individuals or food pantries to feed them. Are you and your fellow constituents alright in knowing this do you all have no souls? Also, just wait and see life in American as we once knew has changed and once all the long term unemployed lose their benefits you all will see the scary aftermath that has become our country.

I guarantee crime will at least triple as well as violent crimes and murders, people will not care they will do what is in their instincts to survive may it be rob, kill, or steal no one will be safe anymore. People will have a no care attitude their thinking will be way out the box they will have the mentality that if they commit a crime and go to jail they will have shelter and three meals a day something they can not get currently.

Then what will happen when the jails and prisons run over and can no longer house additional inmates, I will tell you what will happen pure and utter chaos in every state, city, and town in America. There are only 13,492 FBI special agents, 800,000 law enforcement officers; there are approximately 1,421,668 in all of the armed forces. How are they going to keep us safe when 15 million are fighting to eat and have shelter? There are approximately 22 million people in Iraq not too far off from the amount of people we will have here with no means to support themselves!!

Also, may I ask where is the 7 billion a month come from to keep our troops in Iraq, also where is the 9 billion dollars that is unaccounted for in Iraq, or the 10 billion that has been mismanaged or wasted there, or where does the $390,000 a year come from to deploy just one solider in Iraq? Or how can our country afford to give Haiti a 100 million or more, or 779 million to Sudan, or 684 million to Egypt, or 327 million to Uganda, or 592 million to Ethiopia and the list goes on yet we can not help on own? Also employers across the U.S. pay into unemployment where are these countries paying into us, yet we freely hand them our tax dollars?

I want answers to these questions but I am sure you can not give one can you? Also, how many of the 15 million of the unemployed will be in line to receive public aid, food stamps, or shelter/public housing? And how are those programs funded with tax dollars? At least some of the monies are recuperated from employers for unemployment benefits something that can not be said for the monies spent on war or given to other countries.

I am so passionate about this because yes I am 1 of the 15 million and I have experience I hold a degree in accounting and I am still seeking employment and have been since February 2009. I have submitted at the minimum of 75 resumes a week and not just in my own city but across the U.S praying to get something I have had 5 interviews and at all 5 I have been told I am 1 in 10-20 they picked to interview and at least 200 people have applied for that 1 position. Do you not see this as a crisis situation?

I am praying that this country that we all fought and worked for so much is not about to crumble before all of our eyes. I do believe very soon we will all be shocked and devastated when we see how our country has fallen to a level of despair we may never come back from. Although, we hear nightly on the news the recession is over and things are getting better well lets see what happens when the unemployment dollars are no longer circulating in the economy and more houses go foreclosed, more car repo’s, credit cards and bank loans unpaid. Then everyone will see it’s not a recession we are in it’s a depression and I do believe it will be worse than the Great Depression because if we crumble most of the world will follow.

Last but not least for every dollar spent on employment 1.63 dollars is infused back into the economy, does that happen with food stamps, monies given to war, or to other countries, I do not believe so. We all will see what happens when those dollars are no longer being circulated back into the economy mark my final word the stock market and the world will crash soon!! Thanks to all the senator's out there that finally worry about deficit spending after shelling countless of billions to other countries, war, and big businesses (i.e.: banks, car makers, and such) but no we can not help the people!!!!!!

Personally, I think they should just pass the damn thing unanimously and figure out how to pay for it later. Under normal circumstances, I can understand the bickering over money, but there aren't any jobs to be had, and the ones that are being found are these monkey-wage jobs. Those don't pay the bills. No unemployment and no jobs either = a 2 pronged attack against millions of people. Things are about to get REAL ugly. I've been out of work since 11/9/08 & I'm a stone's throw away from losing everything. Then what? Should we all make a tent city the size of Delaware? Sure you're homeless, but at least you have healthcare >.<
WE MUST MARCH ON WASHINGTON AND BE HEARD!!! OFTEN!!!

Why are the Republicans playing the games they are using the average people like myself who stand to lose everything we have worked our whole lives for, It may just backfire on them. If there are budgets that need to be cut let it be the budgets which permit millions upon millions of dollars to be sent to pay the dictators of third world countries for being “good little dictators and behaving themselves”. Once upon a time in my life the United States did not have to answer to any country for any reason but now it seems America has sold itself out and is not the powerful leader that the entire world looked to for leadership.

In my life time of working which is 30+ years, I have never had to get on food stamps and hand outs but what can you do. It's just frustrating that all there worried about is who's going to pay for it. Well let one of these countries have a diaster and the US will jump right in and send them money and no questions asked on how it's going to be paid for..figure that one out, but when it comes to dealing with unemployment and people lives it's a different story.

You've got to be kidding me: it's not a standalone bill.
It seems that the Senate is just going through the motions of PROPOSING bills; but they are NOT ACTUALLY concerned about the bill(s) EVER PASSING IN THE SENATE.
Senators: Pass a bill that meets the Democrats and Republicans HALF WAY; half of it increases the BUDGET and the other half is from the CURRENT STIMULUS. Who cares where the $ is coming from; the unemployed will LOSE EVERYTHING NOW if this bill doesn't pass.
Or ELSE: lets see where the economy winds up after the Senators fail to get the job done.

I was just watching C-Span 2 on TV, and watching the proceedings from the floor of the House. It's just insane…hardly anyone is there, and they have been voting on bills all morning. Hopefully, the representatives who slept in with their mistresses, and the ones that have major hangovers from last night's drinking, can pull it together enough to get their lazy asses to work and help us in our time of need. I am so “over” politics…and watching live on C-Span 2 makes me even more apathetic. I'm an out of work since Aug. 9-2009 grandma, and desperately need my unemployment benefits to help me hang on to my tiny little apartment. No one is hiring here in Northwest Ohio, and the future looks very bleak. I'm incensed with our elected officials, who repeatedly appear to be flipping us hard-working middle class people the finger, when we are so desperate for help. Shame on all of you…you are paid well to do your jobs, and this is what we get in return?

26 weeks expired May27 sence then. 2 kids and a wife , house with 10 years paid and only 5 left, Educated Mechanical Designer with 20 years in, 3 cars Paid for. Only have 20 dallors left for gas to find a job. Went out again Mondy and dropped 7 resumes of and filled out 4 applications. Have called both Ohio senators (Many Times) and the Rep. told me that he does not want t bankrupt the country. I told him that is exactly what he is doing. The Dem was fighting fo tier 5, Ohio cuts you off after 76 weeks I asked why he is fighting for something that will not effect his own state? They where not aware of this, I ask you what in the name of all that is good our these Jokers Playing. It is not Politics as we think I am starting to think that our Country has already fallen and the new owners will not pay for the old debt. Our Senators our paid for, call them and add up what they saying it does not add up, and the Media do I need to say any more. Grab the children and guns and do what you need to do to servive.

While I have spent much of my time lately writing republican senators and putting them down for the hold out,I am now writing democrats and asking if they are truly concerned about the unemployed then why don't they give in and give the republicans what they want.Give them an unemployment bill that is fully paid for.We must suffer while this power struggle plays out in washington.No one in washington cares what happens to average people.They only go to washington to benefit theirselves.Pretty soon,americans will begin to stand up and fight for what we need and then I am afraid of what will happen.We can only be pushed so far until we finaly begin to push back!!!

Your state has an unemployment page under the department of job services or employment department. If your state qualifies for extensions, it will show it there as Tiers 2 and 3, or as Emergency Extension. If your state is over the 8.5% unemployed, it should qualify for the extensions. If you still are not sure, contact an unemployment insurance office in your state and they will be able to tell you.

No, you cannot. Your money is going into worthless wars, bank bailouts, and corporate welfare on a massive scale. It is not going to the people who paid in 15% of their income from unemployment and low wage jobs, believe me. If you paid those kinds of taxes, then you have a job and you are one of the lucky ones in this nation.

If you do not like that some of this money might go to help American citizens in need then I suggest you find a place to hide. When the people of this country finally get totally fed up and look for someone to blame and attack – it will be politicians, corporate leaders, bankers, and people with names like Jose and Yousef, because the American people will be goaded into believing that when you pay $23,000 in taxes and your name is not Sam or Bill or Jimmy, that you are the enemy of the American People. This is how FOX News works, so consider closely what you write and under what name.

Let me see if I have this right: The GOP screwed America with its economic policies that left us trillions in debt and with laws that prevent us from protecting our environment, our jobs, and our homes, while bailing out banks and big corporations, but when Democrats want to undo some of the damage caused by these failed policies, you think they are trying to create a communistic America? Are you insane or just ignorant?

Michelle Bachmann said that people in Congress should be investigated as being Anti-American – all while she and her family get farm subsidies annually over $200,000 – agribusiness welfare! The only ones who seem to be anti-American are the Republicans. They have proven themselves to be more interested in wars and environmental damage; crippling unions and bailing out banks; acting out weird sexual fantasies than attending to the people's business; and pandering to right-wing militias and racists than in helping educate our children in their own history. You can call this American if you want, but I call it treason. This is a democratic republic, which means that the voice of the people (that's the democratic part) reflects the will of the people (res publica – the public mind), not the will of corporate and military America. Until the Republicans can do that, then the only fascist (corporately controlled government) government in this nation one led not by Democrats, but by the Republicans that people like you will re-elect to finish trashing this nation – and then only God will be able to help us all.

My family is about to lose our home and god knows what's next. I've worked every day of my life since I am 15 years old – I am now almost 53, and can't believe what our country has come to.

Why is Congress in such a stalemate/standoff to pass “Common Sense” legislation such as the unemployment extension which is good policy and benefits American citizens first? Is it because the GOP (Greed Over Principles) Elephants playing too much “Hungry, Hungry Hippo” while waiting for the November elections or the Democrats (Donkeys) being stubborn mules because they control both Houses but can’t stop Republican filibusters? Are both parties “NO COMPROMISE” stance, filled with “EGOTISM” and a line drawn in the “PARTISAN POLITICAL” sand, detrimental to the American people whom are suffering through one of the worst economic downturns since the Great Depression?
Are their ineptitudes and inactions affecting you or other Taxpaying citizens personally? From the looks of thousands of comments on this site and hundreds of others, this seems to be the case.

I have been on unemloyment for 6 months. I seek jobs daily. I also have headed back to college so that I can get a more stable career soon, and I hope to never be in this situation again. We NEED this extension passed. Just 2 days ago I interviewed for a part time position (one opening) and I was the 18th person in line for the interview. The interview lasted, for each person, approx. 45 seconds. It was disconcerning to say the least. There are no jobs. Where are all the promises that Obama made at? I would love to see some of these jobs that he was gonna create are hiding. I am a mother of 3. I worked years for a company that I was devoted to. I never missed a day of work, and there wasn't a week that I didn't put in at least 50 hours. Please don't say that alll of the unemployed are lazy, because we all arent. I know that there are some who have taken advantage to sit on their behinds and do nothing, but that's not me. I want a job, I want to complete my education, and I want my kids to have a home. Please pass this extension….. its important to me and the rest of the unemployed americans.

When I don't have a job, I can't pay bills. If I can't pay bills, I have to file bankruptcy. If I file bankruptcy, those companies loose money. Those companies loose money, they lay-off employees… and the cycle begins again..

I am praying for everyone today, including myself, that the powers that be will pass the unemployment extension bill. I have worked steady since i was 16 years old. At age 40, this is the FIRST time in my entire life that I have ever had to rely on unemployment to make ends meet. The last company that I worked for closed down because so many of our clients were closing down also. My previous position was as a Marketing Analyst. I was dedicated, never called in sick, and enjoyed my job. I'm currently looking for whatever I can get. I've applied at Starbucks, Target, etc. I interviewed at a company for a Data Entry position last week and was told that I was overqualified and that I would probably be bored in this position. BORED???? I need to pay my bills. God bless everyone in the same position as me.

There is already a bill that has been proposed in the Senate S.3520. This bill was proposed several days ago. It has only uinemployment as the subject. Reid and his buddies want to propose something else that they can tag on other items on their agenda. This thing will never get passed if they don't address the issue of unemployment as a true stand-alone.

Thanks Stan, for finally bringing a cogent post to this thread. I empathize with the many postings on here regarding this topic, as I too am unemployed and affected by this legislation, or lack thereof. I do have to comment though, on the rampant and atrocious grammar and spelling inherent in almost ALL of these posts. I hate to say it, but if I was a prospective employer and witnessed this type of illiteracy on a resume, I would take a pass on applicant as well. People, please, if you have no grasp on correctly expressing yourself in proper english, go and find a 5th grader to proofread and edit your post (or your resume, for heavens sake!) prior to submitting.

I'm 31 years old. Heald the same job for over 10 years. Despite making a fine living at one time, I trimmed back my living expenses and now currently have NO debt. I did this because I saw the economic downturn coming before it happened, due to working in the boating industry.

I can't find a job, and frankly if this doesn't pass soon my family will have to move.
It baffles me that this issue isn't on the news more. We are spending billions on the afghan war, but can't fund an EMERGENCY LIFELINE.

Also, FWIW, I have NEVER gotten unemployment until I got layed off, never any kind of government assistance. Now the one time I need it I'm told to go pound sand.

I have been unemployed since Nov. of '09 and although I apply for anything I can I have only had a handful of interveiws with no call backs. Now like most of the unemployed who are without UC benefits we are only eating one (very inexpensive) meal a day and no money to pay bills. Without money for gas how are we to get to an interveiw or apply for jobs?? I was actually at an interveiw with my stomach rumbling from the lack of food, which is very embarassing. I am now apply for welfare in hopes of some sort of help plus the people on welfare are given “job priority” I am told. Aparrently we are to use the system against its self to get noticed and at this point anything I can do to get back to work is all fair game. I have even thought of doing things that I would never have considered before but my consience is still in control, so far. Why does an american even have to endure this after 25 years of paying their taxes and serving their country? I wish I could understand how the news can concentrate on other countries problems and totally ingore the americans on unemployment. Maybe we should try to get some coverage of OUR FAMILIES trying to survive without help. The sad desperate eyes of the americans without food and being tossed out of their homes because they can't find work or pay bills due to a cruel government.

I guess its just tough luck, huh? They are no longer “labor statistics” for Mr. Baucus to review. Maybe if people like Max are not re-elected, then those in need will have some “good luck.” Get rid of this guy!!

My stomach is in the knots every day. I'm 26 and have worked every day since I was 18 and got laid off last year. I don't want to be out of work, but I haven't been able to find any thing. The government is ran by a bunch of cold, heartless, ruthless people. We didn't cause the economy to become this way.
we were actually working and putting money into the economy and now we are the ones being punished. It's a really sad world we live in.

This month I will lose my Internet and phone service, at the end of this month I will be without my rent so the landlord will start the eviction notice I can't blame him as he has bills also. So I will have no phone, no home and will be living in my car soon. Not being able to shower or contact employers hoping for work and stinking because I will have no place to shower. I have no place to go and getting depressed more and more every day. I understand I'm not alone as thousands and thousands of people are in the same boat as me however when the time comes I will do whatever I need to do just to survive so keep your distance from me Congress men and Senators your on my shit list!!!!!!!

Hey Rob, don't misunderstand my point. Yes, we can manage to interpret the gibberish and comprehend the underlying points of the posts…it's just that it is REFLECTIVE of a more concerning issue that such a large proportion of posts on this thread contain so many errors. It makes the entire group seem like we're an uneducated collection of unemployable losers. How do we know that congressional staff are NOT reading these threads? It doesn't seem that difficult to take the time to put forth a decent argument, voice your opinion, AND make it legible. Doing so only increases the merit and credibility of the message, and might get the reader to take the issue more seriously. We're all on the same side here.

Hi my name is Ron and i am a struggling single father who is on the verge of losing everything. I can recall when i was making $100 per day and happy. All bills were paid and i even managed to save over $6,000. But today i announce that all of my savings have been used up paying bills now and i am left with nothing. I use to work 15 hours a day when the economy was good, and we all know how long that was ago because these last few years have all but killed me. I created a new PayPal account with steadystreamofincome@gmail.com as my email address because a steady stream of income is exactly what i need to survive. So this may be called begging, but i call it trying to survive. If anyone can help me out so that i don't lose everything i have left. Please make a very much needed donation of any amount to me through PayPal using my email address Please. I need you and i need your help. I am trying to get 1000 people that care to send me $1 each. That will keep a roof over my head for 4 months as i live in a trailer and everything is low cost here in the south. If anyone is reading and paying attention. PLEASE HELP

I too have been without unemployment since it ran out in May 2010. My job was outsourced in Dec 2009. I have been on a few interviews, but none have resulted in a job. I have worked for 18 years and this is the first time I've ever been without a job. ***To all who currently don't have any unemployment income – you can apply for Food Stamps (now called SNAP). If you have no income on the day that you apply, you will receive food stamps for that month and the next month. Don't know how I'm going to pay my house payment, but at least I got $200 this month for food.

I have been out of work for 6 months now. My husband and I decided to start a family when things were going well with my job. As soon as we got the good news about the pregnancy, I got the bad news about my layoff. Believe me, its hard enough to get your foot in the door for an interview let alone with a big pregnant belly. I truly feel for those in my shoes or those in worse situations.

Oh, but please make sure we all chip in and save the pelicans!

The other day my husband and I were at Home Depot talking to a young woman working there. She complained nonstop about her job. I wanted to shove her aside, march straight to the manager and tell him I would be happy to work in place of the ungrateful twit at the customer service station.

There will always be people out there who will never understand or care to understand how it feels to be in our shoes, let alone the “pocket lined” politicians that run our country.

Hello Shimosley, I am in the same shoes as you as I live in New York State ( Rochester) I have also been with out unemployment from may to current, I applied to Department of Social Services and they told me the same exact thing. I did not qualify for Emergency Food Stamps I received to much UI Benefits of 4.4 weeks!. I also asked the case worker the same thing ” I am sure you have heard about unemployment and no extension currently passed” She replied no have not heard any thing. So I was then told that I had to wait 6-8 weeks for them to process my application threw there system for Family Assistance. My case worker sent me to a job search class that I completed however I do not understand how New York state thinks that there are jobs out there cause right now here I am not having any luck. So for now the only thing I can do Is go to the local churches and local charities to get some kind of food to feed my daughter and I. So thanks to the good old Senate, House of Legislation, New York State included! I almost have nothing. I have a roof over my head but when I can not pay the rent by the 5th of July I will be most likely facing eviction and then I will have nothing. Good old America huh!

My father lost his job of 13 years at age 60. Six months later he was called in to interview for a similar position at the same company that laid him off. A younger gentleman looked over his resume and asked, “So, what do you have to offer the company?” He wanted to say, “How about 13 years of my life?”

He still didn't get the job because they knew what his past income was and had no intention of paying half as much for a near identical position. Not only is it practically impossible to find work, but companies know the desperation and can ask for a scroll of qualifications for pennies on the dollar.

Obama will age 20 years by the time his term is up. He knows what the people need and he will continue fighting to help us one way or another. The man isn't God, but he isn't one to be pushed around either. Although I'm sure he will be blamed for everything gone wrong all the same. I just know I won't be voting for Republicans any time soon.

Editorial NY TIMES NEWSPAPER

Who Will Fight for the Unemployed?

Published: June 29, 2010

Without doubt, the two biggest threats to the economy are unemployment and the dire financial condition of the states, yet lawmakers have failed to deal intelligently with either one.

Federal unemployment benefits began to expire nearly a month ago. Since then, 1.2 million jobless workers have been cut off. The House passed a six-month extension as part of a broader spending bill in May, but the Senate, despite three attempts, has not been able to pass a similar bill. The majority leader, Harry Reid, said he was ready to give up after the third try last week when all of the Senate’s Republicans and a lone Democrat, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, blocked the bill.

Meanwhile, the states face a collective budget hole of some $112 billion, but neither the House nor the Senate has a plan to help. The House stripped a provision for $24 billion in state fiscal aid from its earlier spending bill. The Senate included state aid in its ill-fated bill to extend unemployment benefits; when that bill failed, the promise of aid vanished as well.

As a result, 30 states that had counted on the money to help balance their budgets will be forced to raise taxes even higher and to cut spending even deeper in the budget year that begins on July 1. That will only worsen unemployment, both among government workers and the states’ private contractors. Worsening unemployment means slower growth, or worse, renewed recession.

So if lawmakers are wondering why consumer confidence and the stock market are tanking (the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index hit a new low for the year on Tuesday), they need look no further than a mirror.

The situation cries out for policies to support economic growth — specifically jobless benefits and fiscal aid to states. But instead of delivering, Congressional Republicans and many Democrats have been asserting that the nation must act instead to cut the deficit. The debate has little to do with economic reality and everything to do with political posturing. A lot of lawmakers have concluded that the best way to keep their jobs is to pander to the nation’s new populist mood and play off the fears of the very Americans whose economic well-being Congress is threatening.

Deficits matter, but not more than economic recovery, and not more urgently than the economic survival of millions of Americans. A sane approach would couple near-term federal spending with a credible plan for deficit reduction — a mix of tax increases and spending cuts — as the economic recovery takes hold.

But today’s deficit hawks — many of whom eagerly participated in digging the deficit ever deeper during the George W. Bush years — are not interested in the sane approach. In the Senate, even as they blocked the extension of unemployment benefits, they succeeded in preserving a tax loophole that benefits wealthy money managers at private equity firms and other investment partnerships. They also derailed an effort to end widespread tax avoidance by owners of small businesses organized as S-corporations. If they are really so worried about the deficit, why balk at these evidently sensible ways to close tax loopholes and end tax avoidance?

House lawmakers made an effort on Tuesday to extend jobless benefits but failed to get the necessary votes, and it remains uncertain if an extension can pass both the House and Senate before Congress leaves town on Friday for a weeklong break. What’s needed, and what’s lacking, is leadership, both in Congress and from the White House, to set the terms of the debate — jobs before deficit reduction — and to fight for those terms, with failure not an option.

A version of this editorial appeared in print on June 30, 2010, on page A30 of the New York edition.

For the first time, I am ashamed to be an American. Democrats could not get enough votes to pass their unemployment extension and the Republicans offered an alternative. They offered a two month extension, fully paid for…..and the Democrats would not accept it. What do they do instead? They go on a 11 day break……. I am ashamed to have voted for any of the current politicians, not to mentiion sorry. I am ashamed for myself, one of the unemployed who was cut off in early June and sorry to all of the others like me. I wish I could call for an immediate impeachment of all politicians because they DO NOT have Americans in mind with their votes.

We need more than unemployment extension. We need an overhaul of the social safety net system. I have been out of work for 2 years and have not received a penny from unemployment or insurance benefits. I was an independent consultant contracted to 1 company for 5 years. I have lost my savings and my retirement and could not afford health insurance and now live in poverty through no fault of my own. Unemployment insurance is based on an antiquated employment system. It has destroyed financially many families due to the “luck of the draw” for how you received your income prior to the lost. Many people were contracted and worked very hard and there is and was no help. It is extremely unfair to provide for a “chosen” group of unemployed both for the weekly cash as well as the Cobra subsidy.

This is absolutely crazy. While I suppose at some point we really do have to say no more to unfunded spending, this is a horrible bill to use to draw that line in the proverbial sand. I'm glad… REALLY glad some in congress are finally willing to draw the line and say “no more unfunded spending”. … and I'm saddened and ashamed that those same members chose THIS bill to do it.

I'm also frustrated, saddened and angry that others in congress just can't seem to understand that there is and has to be a limit to how much and how long you can spend money you don't have. Even now, democrats are unwilling to defund or delay funding of current programs to pay for this. Those of us who have lost our incomes KNOW that sucky choices have to be made. And we make them. Because we HAVE TO.

Take that 33B and spread it out as cuts equally and proportionately over EVERY other federal program, without exception. OR… take taht 33B and spread it out as income taxes to EVERY taxpayer. Either way, pay for it, pass-it, and move on! We are all Americans, and should ALL be taking care of each other.33B is a huge amount to me, but relatively small potatoes to the overall budget. This is simply not rocket science (or well-plugging science)

The Republicans think they will hurt Obama by not passing the unemployment extension, and thereby worsening the economy. This will backfire and they will end up screwing themselves with their own hypocrisy. As the NYT editorial states, “even as they blocked the extension of unemployment benefits, they succeeded in preserving a tax loophole that benefits wealthy money managers at private equity firms and other investment partnerships…” More evidence that they care only about their own political agenda, and preserving wealth for themselves.

I too am unemployed and find myself searching the internet daily to find out if the extension has passed. I thought I would never stoop to look to the government for a handout.

The Republicans are not to blame. They have proposed to pay for the extension (and end this delay) by paying for it with UNUSED STIMULUS MONEY (hundreds of millions) but the Democrats are saying no.

So when you all fax, call the elected politicians, just ask the Democrats one question “WHY WONT THE DEMOCRATS ALLOW THE UNUSED STIMULUS MONEY PAY FOR THE EXTENSION THEREBY NOT ADDING MONEY TO THE DEFICIT AND END ALL OF OUR ANXIETY!!!!!

I’ve been unemployed since May 1 2009. Since then I have applied to 478+ jobs including my state’s unemployment office and believe it or not, a contract job in Afghanistan. I changed around my resume into several different versions including the one I try to cover that a one time CEO is now trying to find a job flipping burgers. Now that one took some skill! Republicans calling us lazy?? I have never in my life filled out so many applications with no results and I always had a job. Time after time I get the same rejection letter that will say how impressed they are with my qualifications, but they are seeking other candidates. I get depressed, but every morning I am up at dawn on the computer filling out the applications and searching for that job. Come November I will remember those who are running for office and will make sure what and who they stand for. When I think of what this great country has come to it breaks my heart. Sure, Happy 4th of July to all of you.

What's awful is the unemployment extension block isnt even news worthy. If it is all mentioned it's a small article some where in the middle of a paper, or hiding some where on the web. 1.2 million have lost benefits. by august 1, it will be up to 2 million.
im tired of hearing the Reps. worring about the deficit in another generation. I am worried about today, tomorrow. We payed off the deficit before, we can do it again.

the republicans completely blocked the EUC. The Republicans said they would vote for 1 month of benefits if out of the stimulus package. This was on the 25th of June, and they have been debating this since the end of May.
I was watching CSPAN that day. Not a single Republican voted or made a cconcession to extend unemployment. Democrate Senator of Michigan, Deborah Stanube fought for unemployment. While the Rep. were calling the unemployed: animals, hobos, drug addicts, lazy, welfare cases,and spoiled and entitled

What a sad day in US history. I was hardcore republican for 30 years. Rest assured I will do everything I can to make sure that no republicans win in November. I have a feeling I'm not the only one. I hope all the Senators have fantastic 4th! Not to mention a week off from a job which they do nothing….On the other hand why doesn't out President make them stay in emergency session til these piss ants do something constructive!

Let me start by saying that I strongly believe that President Obama is a good man and that in no way do I blame him for what has happened today. I do believe and hope that he will step up and do something about this travesty that has occurred.

Today is July first and I do not have the money to pay my bills, buy food or to even pay for my rent next month. I have worked miracles with the 290.00 dollars a week that our government so graciously bestows upon our family. So I assume that my two daughters and I will have a roof over our heads for another month maybe two if we are lucky enough that the courts decide that we can stay that extra month.

Today some Republican senators blocked the unemployment bills that would have ensure that unemployed American families would continue to collect unemployment benefits.
These Senators say that their only concern is about our deficit. I say where the hell where they when their Mr Bush was running up the deficit into billions and trillions of dollars. They went along and approved everything, why ? because he was a Republican like them ? or maybe because Bush paid them off in some way ? or is it maybe that these heartless Republican will not vote for anything that the Democrats want to accomplish for their fellow men. I guess it's all about the Benjamen's in their pockets that matter. Heartless worms.

How many Americans families will lose their livelihoods because of this heartless action of not extending our unemployment benefits.

These Senators have just shown 2. million unemployed human beings with families that we have to feed, that they just don't give a damn about us, the only things these worms care about are themselves nothing or nobody else matters.

If any of them would actually care or even had hearts they would not leave DC until they have voted to extend unemployment for those that have exhausted what little benefits they do get. They would not leave until this matter was resolved. But I guess that their week long vacation and their fourth of July activities are much more important than making sure that American families have food on their tables so we too can celebrate our nations birthday.

These Senators must not be voted in again come November. List there name, know there names and make sure do not vote for them. Call their offices, Fax their offices, Day in and day out if necessary. We are the people of the United States of America and we are not asking for a hand out. We worked for it. We sacrificed for it. We pay taxes after taxes for it. Our paychecks are taxed, everything we buy is taxed and then at the end of the year it is taxed again. We have paid years after years for unemployment benefits when it is really needed.

We all want jobs. I have worked all my life. I am not lazy. I have looked and looked and applied over 400 companies with nothing to show for it. if these Senators do not want to pay benefits then let them find every single unemployed American a job. I am sure we will all graciously and happily accept.

I leave you with something that I wrote, and I did not write this out of anger but out of desperation, sadness and an empty void in my heart. You will recognize the first paragraph.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
My heart now cries for thee,
For Government and Corporate men, have brought you to your knees.

America, what have they done,
now progress just a dream,
No jobs in sight and family life no longer has a mean.
To rise above all that's been done,
from Governmental greed.

America, things have to change, our for fathers agreed.
we must unit for righteous rights, don't let false leaders lead.
America, America.
Gods eyes are set on thee,
To proper now we must be bound,
From sea to shinning sea.

I really have no pity for the unemployed. They are there because of their own action or inaction. At best, they were unimpressive enough to make the layoff list to begin with. I am an employer, and I proudly reject applications and resumes from applicants who are presently unemployed. It's a sign of laziness when someone refuses to secure a job, especially by the time they've gobbled down three or four extensions. http://www.nightshad.com/blog/2010/06/29/how-ab…

I got hurt at the prison I work at March 2008. The prison won't let me return to work light duty so unemployment commission found in my favor proving that my employer was at fault in not accepting me back at a light duty position until my work comp case is concluded. This has been very traumatic to me and my family and I have since run out of unemployment benefits having exceeded my 99 weeks. My orthopedic surgeon won't let me return to work full duty and I have been looking for another job. There is nothing out there right now. I have since filed a legal complaint with PA Human Relations Commission because in addition to my comp case. People who are unemployment are on it because of their employer's inactions or discrimination. They are not lazy and undeserving. You are way off base and out of touch. I bet your employees like having you as a boss… NOT!

Seriously Mike you're posting this as a joke right? We are unemployed because of our own inaction and we are subpar workers?

There is NOTHING at all lazy about 99.9% of us and people like you don't make things better at all. No doubt you're rich and have that “I got mine now you get yours” attitude that is so prevalent in America today and has been part of the root cause of this whole problem. In short Mike you are a scumbag PERIOD and I can't believe that you, as an American, have so little heart toward the American working people. You rejecting applications from those who are unemployed simply worsens the problem. Remember Mike, if we all go down you will eventually go with us. You might not think you will but you will.

One more thing Mike that I happened to notice in your blog about going out and flipping burgers to prove that people want to work. The local McDonald's down the street from where I live in Indiana has 150 applications on file with a turnover rate of about 5 people every 2 months. I spoke to the manager there while I was out delivering resumes one day. So, what is your answer to that. Fucking McDonald's has 150 MIKE, 150 Apps on file with a 2.5 person per month turnover rate!!! How long would it take me to get a job there at that rate. They want to employ everyone so, oh, let's say if the turnover rate were 5 people per month it would still take 30 months for me to go to work there. You really just don't get it do you. You all live in denial of just what a problem this is and the scale of this nationwide emergency.

When were you last unemployed? The American employment system is nearly completely broken. How can you be marketable when there are hardly any places actually hiring? When McDonald's has a backlog of applications on file? How do you stay marketable when 6 million people who live in your state are ALL trying to land the only 2 to 3 thousand jobs created in a whole year in that state?? I really think people like you and Mike don't understand because you don't have to deal with it. It's an out of sight, out of mind issue with you guys. There used to be many, many jobs with hardly anyone to fill the positions both skilled and unskilled. Today the absolute reverse is true. It's simple supply and demand economics and right now the supply is outrageous and the demand almost non-existent. I have a friend with a PhD. in physics who sweeps the floors at Wal-Mart at night and I'm not joking. And the only reason he got the job was because his friend is the store manager. He can't teach at the University because they've cut the faculty to the bone and he wasn't on a tenure track. So what do you call that? He did “everything he needed to do” according to the way YOU see things.

What is so atonishing is that is sounds like, Mr.ProudConservative, that you actually believe everyone in the United States has the same access and opportunity to achieve a higher level of education, such as a college degree, and that we were all taught and had access to free forms of birth control and other contraceptives. Not making the correct choices in life? Come the fuck on, already. When you come from poverty, when the government does all it can to keep the rich wealthy and the poor impoverished, there is no such thing as equal opportunity in this nation. You should be ashamed and embarassed that you paid all that money for a higher education when it has obviously done nothing to educate you about the plight of Americans struggling day-to-day to make ends meet. I am guessing that you are a thirty-something white dude, who has never felt oppressed, marginalized or penalized for your color, your gender, your class, sexual orientation, or the location in which you grew up. You are confident in your opinions because you feel ENTITLED to them, to everything! You made it, after all. You kept your dick in your pants. Good for fucking you. I still know many women who had children, obtained a degree, worked hard for their wages and fell victim to our crappy economy the same way millions of other people in the U.S. did. Including myself. I have a degree. I worked at a drug and alcohol treatment center as a chemical dependency counselor, but our organization was closed after funding elapsed. Now I am on unemployment and state assistance. I have a degree in Creative Writing, so I obviously know how to write a cover letter and a resume and I have still been unemployed for the past four months.

All I have to say to ignorant, entitled men like you is, I hope your dick shrivels up and falls the fuck off, asshole.

The 4th doesn't really seemed like it should be celebrated in any way this year, Especially without money nor an end in sight, bills pilling up and collectors calling every hour! It makes me sad and has my heart feeling heavy and sad that our government doesn't care for it's people nor their children!

Wow. People like you are always a sad and invigorating reminder of why I do the kind of work I do. Clearly, you know nothing about the realitites of addiction and alcoholism that effect millions of people worldwide, regardless of one's “free will.” Additionally, I do not fell you are worth debating with class, just crass. Because it makes me angry. Because it is just that appaling. I'm not sure how playing the victim is even relevant in your argument, or brief synopsis or my previous comment, just as a sidenote. Why would anyone, of their own free will, choose to be part of a collective, marginalizaed population that has been and continues to be oppressed by people such as yourself. When you can tell me how to change the color of one's skin, or one's sexual orientation, so that they can somehow walk a more successful road in this world, then I'll listen to what you have to say.

The unfortunate peoole who have lost their jobs and are unemployed are taxpayers too. they would not be eligible for unemployment benefits if they had not held a job on which they paid into unemployment benefits, and been laid off or their job disappeared. Since you are so wise and made the correct choices in life,I sincerely hope that whoever you work for did not make the correct choices and decides send your job offshore or close doors entirely. Then maybe you would not be so judgemental.

If you are truly an employer who has jobs available and refuses to hire an out of work person just because they are unemployed, then you deserve to find yourself out of work and on the street. I sinceely hope that it happens to you some day. Noone is exempt from bad luck and unfortunately some of the people who deserve it the most are the most unfeeling and arrogant. You are evidently one of those..

SOMETIMES PEOPLE WHO ARENT MARKETABLE ARE BY NO FAULT OF THERE OWN. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO COMPLETE MY COLLEGE FOR SIX YEARS, THE LAST THREE HAVING BEEN DENIED FINANCIAL AIDE AND LOANS DUE TO HAVING TO MANY LOANS ALREADY, AND NO FAMILY MONEY TO FALL BACK ON AND KIDS TO CARE FOR, HOW EXACTLY DO I BECOME MORE MARKETABLE THAN I AM? I WORK MY ASS OFF, MY LAST JOB DISAPPEARED SINCE THE COMPANY WENT BELLY UP, TOP TO BOTTOM UNEMPLOYED. I HAVE SEVEN YEARS EXPERIENCE AND SEVENTY SOME CREDITS IN COLLEGE AND CANT CONTINUE IN SCHOOL OR FIND WORK IN MY EXPERIENCED FIELD SINCE THERES NONE TO FIND, SO ITS NICE YOU DONT UNDERSTAND HOW ANY OF THIS CAN BE SINCE YOU NEVER HAD TO DEAL WITH THIS SITUATION, BUT DONT BE SO IGNORANT TO CRITICIZE EVERYONE ON LONG TERM UNEMPLOYMENT WHEN YOU DONT KNOW SHIT ABOUT ALL THE SITUATIONS THAT GOT THEM THERE. I APPLY TO TWENTY JOBS A WEEK AND FIGHT FOR SCHOOL FUNDING TO BECOME MORE “MARKETABLE” AS YOU SAY, BUT SO FAR HAVE GOTTEN NO WHERE BUT MORE DESPERATE. I HOPE YOU SOME DAY EXPERIENCE THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS DEBATE SO YOU CAN STICK YOUR FOOT IN YOUR MOUTH AND KNOW WHAT A JACKASS YOU WERE. EVEN WHEN I FINISH MY DEGREE THERE STILL IS NO GUARANTEE OF WORK, I HAVE PLENTY OF FRIENDS WITH ADVANCED DEGREES WHO CANT FIND WORK OR SETTLE FOR LOWLY JOBS ANYONE QUALIFIES FOR, SO DONT FEEL SO UNTOUCHABLE, THIS ECONOMY COULD CATCH UP TO YOU TOO! AND WHEN IT DOES, I HOPE NO ONE SHOWS YOU ANY MERCY!

So you got yourself too many loans… Who fault was that? You were having sex instead of hitting the books in college… Who fault was that? The taxpayers? Just like a liberal. No one owes you “financial aid”. No one is entitled to give you a loan. My point is that the government is not going to get you out of this. Only you will. go watch that movie with Will Smith called the Pursuit of Happiness. Winners do what losers wont. It is not too late. You can do it. Why? Because you live in the richest country in the world. Be a victor, not a victim.

To proudconservative. I have read all your replies on this thread and one thing stands out and that is that you continue to assume we are all liberals. That is not the case. One other thing I might point out is that, yes, America is rich but it's wealth is faltering and like another poster said, not everyone has the access to what it takes to make it like you seem to think. I have seen many people, even those with means, struggle very badly in these very difficult times. I believe, like everyone else here, that you really haven't seen the other side or are just in denial as so many people are. You will notice that in this reply I have not cursed or used abusive language and I won't, but I don't blame those who choose to. They are angry and the majority of them have every right to be angry. Unemployment insurance is a right that every tax paying (or former taxpayer if you're unemployed) is entitled to. Not everyone wins. Your quip reminds me of another quip of my own, “Not everyone gets to be an astronaut.” Why don't you show a little sympathy to your fellow American brothers and sisters.

Yoiu sir are an ignorant ass and you are the problem of the economy. I would debate you but that would be lowering myself to the your level and like boxing with a blind man, becuse it is obvious that you are ignoratn fro your writing and understanding of the economy. I certainly would like to know waht your company does so that we all on here can avoid it. I am college educated in engineering and economics and it quite obvious that your aren't educated.As to the layoff lists, I have the unfortunate duty to have had to make one and decide who stays and who goes and I generally let the ones like you go.

So for you the owner i have no respect for people like you that would do something like this it wasn't his choice to lose his job with a wife and 2 kids.
Before you speak you should know peoples outcomes of why they are getting unemployment. So put that in your mouth and eat up.

You jerk. Sounds like you never had to struggle a day in your life. You must be one of those people born with a silver spoon in your mouth. Mommy and Daddy paved the way so you could reach success. Well some of us never had it like you, we had to start working right out of high school and didn’t get a scholarship to see college. You probably were able to keep your pecker in your pants because you were a jerk in school and no chicks would dig you. Good for you n8whit. People like you need to experience what it is like to live without money. Every day is a struggle to get by while you richies complain about helping the less fortunate. You are a selfish peice of work and I hope you wake up and realize how many people you just insulted.

You jerk. Still being a jerk. I chose to be a victor. I chose to be a millionair too. Well i’m no millionair yet and I’m not victorious. But I also made a choice not to do drugs or commit crimes. I got up and went to work since I was of age to work just like everyone else. Some people can only go so far when there is always some jerk out there who is a better candidate for the job. I’m not jealous but when a more qualified individual gets the job instead of me where does that leave me? I end up having to take what I can get just to be able to pay that next months rent. Have you ever had to just take what you can get? I bet you overcame the odds right? You probably had more help getting over the odds than you realize. Some of us just never had the help so we are left to struggle and be looked down upon by pompous buttholes and n8whits out there. Sorry to call names but your point of view is offensive to people who really try there best with what they’ve got. there are too many congressmen who share your logic which in my opinion is the reason this country is in such disarray.
