    White House signaled it would accept an extension of unemployment benefits, but the speaker refused to allow the stimulus package to be broken up.

    What was she thinking?

    Geraldo just made a point on his show about our stock market melt down. Could it be Russia or China is keeping the markets down to break our economy? Something to think about. I guess we’ll find out Monday. I pray that is not true!

    My fellow u/e people on here-once again the repuuuuuuuuuuuuublicans deny us -remember in November it was McCain back in January who denied us benefits from the start with the warning that this will happen!!!

    After the Senate approved the $700 billion bank bailout, the majority leader, Harry Reid, tried to persuade his colleagues to address another economic calamity before they left town for the long election recess. He urged them to extend unemployment benefits for 800,000 jobless Americans.

    In the face of Republican opposition, the measure failed. Benefits start expiring this week. So much for Main Street.

    This site started out as a group of people with real problems and a common need to work toward getting the UI Extension passed. I’ve read some sad stories and know that most of us are together in our fear of not being able to feed our families, keept a roof over our heads, and pay our bills. We need help…a hopefully, a job. In the meantime, we all need UI to tide us over until that happens.

    However, our site has deteriorated into something else….some people have drifted away from the original goal and are using it as a political platform; a place to post fictional distortions of the facts; nonsense; and rude comments. I will continue to call and write to the people who are in a position to help us but I will no longer read or participate in this site until it returns to its original goal. Until this happens, I have better ways to spend my time.

    uh, politics and getting the UE passed are intertwined. but there is too much irrelevant stuff here as well.

    Spot on! Anyone reading this forum has got to get the feeling that perhaps the blamegamers on here are nothing more than folks thinking they are ENTITLED to a handout. The ignorance and immaturity does not serve any of us well.

    Boo Hoo is it DOOMS DAY YET?

    NOT…..Things will work out!

    We just have to wait for the DO NOTHING CONGRESS to do nothing for a while longer, they want to try and sway the votes the way they want, in their favor.

    Extension of Unemployment Benefits needs to pass, whether it is part of the stimulus package or not.. it should have passed before the session ended as many are running out of Benefits.. We won’t see anything happening until Nov 4, over 800,000 are of the UE but are still not employed…UE stats in Ca are 7.7% and rising…
