How can they just drop the unemployment extension? They blew that GI Bill way up, what the hell for?

OK I just tried to email all of the Republican represatives in Michigan and if you are not in their district they will not accept your email. That is how ignorant they are. Their phones will be burning from me.

Well outotime, say your point.

Ya, I was just checking that out myself. Weird.

Each state may handle it differently yet I believe most states will proactively notify everyone who is eligible and advise them how to proceed in order to submit your claim.

It only takes 5 thumbs down to dismiss the nonsense from the trollers playbook.

like i said thought. wishful thinking. that would almost be like asking Congress to actually put in a full week of work

Congress has a self-imposed deadline of July 4th to get the war supplemental to Bush. We could be waiting all month folks.

Calm down, it’s the same newspaper reporting this, isn’t that odd? the washington post doesn’t know if we don’t ,who’s leaking the information? Nobody!!! just scare tactics at our expense, they think, I believe this is BS like last time. Scroll back a month or so You’ll see.

I guess it’s just something for him to do. I am really disappointed when I come to this site and find all kinds of distasteful comments and links to information I am not interested in. I really wish we could stay focused on what most agree to come here to support.

Every state SHOULD get this help because there are pockets of unemployed counties in some states that are as high as 9%. So although the state may have a low rate there are people in counties of that state that desperately need this extension.

I agree with you, I live in California we are high as a state , But I am for the support of this bill , I think all states should get this help.

06/19/08 on PBS The Nightly Business Report will have current Jobless Claims. Right now there are talking about what we already know, a dismal economy. At 7PM they will have Washington Week in Review.

Whatever our odds may be in THE natural it’s always good to keep hope alive and have faith in God. Goodnight everyone.

I was reading that the House and Senate are going to cut Home heating, Katrina and some other domestic stuff, but they are going to keep the unemployment extension and the new GI Bill in the War supplement. If they keep the Troop withdrawal time limits out AND Then and only Then will they pass the war bill with the UE extension and GI Bill in it. Then Bush will sign the Bill because he wants a strong Military.
