    who ever asked what the question was is a moron. The question was and I quote “Wish some 1 would ask Nancy Pelosi What are 800,000 ppl going to do from now until the Stimilus is on the floor 3 months from now!!!!”

    and the answer is “SUFFER”

    Time Magazine Names Colo. Senator Allard Among Nation’s 5 Worst
    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/health/8749006/detail.html

    Pelosi just had a news conference
    Everybody spoke and did their usual talk about helping mainstreet.
    2 economists mentioned the Unemployed and Benefits.
    The first was a ROBERT KUTTNER Senior Advisor of the DEMOS PUBLIC POLICY AND ADVOCACY GROUP who said help must go to the unemplyed who are losing and have lost their benefits. He said hearings should be held now so that the new president had all this set out before he came into office. Also this stimulus must be mostly for main street not wall street as the first one was aimed mainly at wall street.
    The second was a JARED BERNSTEIN,Senior Economist of the ECONOMIC POLICY INITIAVE who also said help must go to the unemployed. He then said that 800,000, the 13 week extension group, have just lost their benefits, must also be covered in this new package. He said the rate of unemployment is 6.1% – but that that figure is WRONG. — ITS I S REALLY OVER 11% counting those who have just run out of unemployment benefits.
    None of the other advisory economists mentioned the unemployed.
    Perhaps we email or call and thank these 2 guys. It will keep them going for us.
    Pelosi said the last stimulus was written by both parties and the republicans got the benefit. She said if the republicans again wanted to block the vote the democrats might as well write the package alone.

    OBAMA just said to EXTEND UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AND NOT TAX THEM

    ON CSPAN now

    If you believe in the Democrats after they have sold you down the road to make themselves look good at your expense and for those of you who have kids to feed, your children’s expense and you’re still going to vote for those selfish self serving idiots, then you deserve to live under the bridge. If Bush said he would sign an extension and Pelosi loaded it with pork so it didn’t go through, and you all still want these dispicable idiots in office, then you’re all sheeple.Good Luck.

    I think it’s pretty selfish for you to assume your strife is any worse than anyone else’s. Your landlord has to go through the court to “throw you out”. That usually takes at least 6 months.
