    WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the House probably will vote on a stimulus package with an extension of jobless benefits on Friday.

    The speaker said the stimulus bill likely would contain an extension of jobless benefits, and help for states in the form of Medicaid and infrastructure-construction dollars.

    Congress is in its final days before its scheduled recess for the elections. But the need to finish the $700 billion bailout package to deal with the financial system crisis leaves open the possibility legislators will remain in Washington longer.

    Pelosi and other congressional leaders, as well as the presidential nominees, were scheduled to meet with President Bush Thursday afternoon. Pelosi said she would use the opportunity to urge Bush to support a stimulus package, which she said may be “a little more” than the originally anticipated $50 billion.

    “We hope the president sees the light now, but we intend to proceed with a very lean stimulus package,” said Pelosi.

    She added that “it would be very hard” for the administration to argue Wall Street needs a $700 billion bailout while not helping the average worker who is feeling the “ramification of Wall Street’s crisis” in job losses.

    While Pelosi offered no details of the stimulus plan, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel proposes extending unemployment benefits for seven weeks for all states, and then on top of that another 13 weeks for states with jobless rates of 6 percent or higher.

    Michigan has the highest jobless rate in the nation, at 8.9 percent. The national average is 6.1 percent.

    Bush signed a bill that included a 13-week extension of jobless benefits on June 30.

    That earlier extension was expected to help about 226,000 jobless workers in Michigan, whose benefits either already had been exhausted or would have been soon.

    I will post this as (2)-parts as there is now a 1000 character iimit on this forum.

    EVERYONE,

    Please do not become discouraged, I know that this sentiment is better and easier to be “Said” rather than acted upon, but my point is please do not allow yourselves to despair because of some “UNFOUNDED” comments or scare and fear based comments some may choose to make in this here forum.

    This is just my opinion:

    I have been following this for some time now and “NANCY PELOSI” and the majority of the “DEMS” have been trying to include this the “Extension”; in (2) different bills, thus not fruitful due to “REPUB’S” blocking. They are trying, they will attempt to include this in some spending measure, stimulus add on or somethng and I have a strong feeling that they will get “AT LEAST SOMETHING”!!!

    It goes way beyond it being an election year. Politics! Politics! They all know that they have to and they (MUST!!!) “Stabilize” and “Revitalize” some public spending and the best way to spearhead that right now is through “UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION”. Leaving off to adjourn without and “EXTENSION” will cause major losses for both Economy and political parties. Mark my sentiments!

    Just my opinion. And yes, I am a realist and am still keeping hope “ALIVE”!!!

    Be Blessed All…

    So are they giving wall street the whole lump sum of 700 trillion??

  • Anonymous 09/25/2008 2:30pm

    Just heard Obama talk about the contentious meeting today, he said it all, " We need to think about Main Street, jobless claims are the highest in 7 years, we need a stimulus package", he had the guts to say it, let’s see what happens tomorrow.
