    if this bill does not go through, since my benefits stopped in late October, I will be evicted and I am 71 and sick. I lost my job in early January 2008 and my social security check is inadequate for the area in which I live, as is the weekly unemployment check, but together they allowed me to live. now I dont know.

    I’m 27 with 2 degrees from a major Southern university, fresh out of college. Everything was great until I lost my job in January due to closing; used unemployment to keep up car payments, insurance, etc. while trying to find job. After unemployment benefits exhausted, I wrecked and totaled the car, losing every dime as it was worth exactly what I owed.
    I was in the middle of interviews, but without a way to get there (live in rural Georgia, 10 miles from nearest city) I had to back down. Now I have no job and no car, and you really need one to be able to aquire the other. Its not like buses, subways, and other mass transit exhist in rural regions of the country. At least if I was in a city, sure, I could walk and take a bus or something. The only thing you could ride around here is cows and goats.
    If it wasn’t for my family, I don’t know where I’d be right now. The only way I’m going to be able to do anything is if this extension passes; if it does, I could at least get enough to buy a POS to TRY to find a job. What am I supposed to do if they don’t get this through?
    I already had to file for bankruptcy and don’t have anything left! And to make matters worse, you can’t bankrupt student loans, which I have a lot of. Thank god I’m not married or have kids right now, but if things keep goind the way they are… I won’t even be able to try to be normal. So here’s your next generation, America.
