    This is absolutely absurd. My husband spends 4-5 hours a day networking and looking for work. He has been out November. His benefits exhausted 4 days after the expiration so we are left out in the cold. July rent and all utilities are due with no money for them. You are leaving Americans to just sit and wait til you all decide to play nice instead of saying I am taking my ball and going home. By not extending this you will cause more people to lose jobs as the unemployed will have no money to spend. You will have more people homeless so you will cost areas more money for aid to homeless. This has been since before Memorial Day. Really come on it must be nice you all take long weekends and vacation breaks while we wonder how long til we MIGHT se money and how long til we have to live in a shelter.

    Debbie Stabenow’s (D-Michigan) standalone unemployment extension bill has already been introduced. It will now be up to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) as to whether Stabenow’s unemployment extension
    bill is brought to the floor of the Senate for debate or a “unanimous consent” vote and when.

    Senator Reid has previously expressed that he prefers to keep the unemployment benefits extension provisions of the bill included in the broader “American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act of 2010″ or “Extenders” bill and intends to set it aside and move onto other business for the next few weeks in order to pressure Republicans to vote for the entire package of provisions when he returns to it.

    So, while Senator Stabenow’s standalone unemployment extension bill could be entertained by the Senate soon, it will be up to Reid whether he chooses to bring it up for consideration and when he wants to do so.

    Finally received a response from Barack Obama – in a form letter but hey- here are some websites from that letter….www.dol.gov of course there aren’t any dol jobs for Ohio- but maybe someone on here can benefit. also try www.careeronestop.org- I’ve been working with a temp service (unsuccessfully at this point) but she said employers are not posting much due to overwhelming responses and they are callin on temp services to weed out good canidates…oh yeah also try www.indeed.com for fresh listings daily….so go see them also…don’t give up- I pray for us all everday and reading the posts help me realize that I am not alone, I’m not the only one with it all on the line…..your all in my thoughts and prayers. Never give up

    There is a new bill in order support this one and write comments… http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5618/actions_votes ……this is a stand alone bill 5618

  • brokechristine 06/29/2010 9:51am

    they are voting right now on HR 5618…….pray

  • brokechristine 06/29/2010 10:18am

    didn’t pass……

  • Abaratarrr 06/29/2010 11:24am

    it failed reviving a 2/3rds majority by 18 votes, if they will vote again but using normal procedures it will pass. A republican will propose an amendment to pay for it, the amendment will fail then the bill will pass.

    Only 30 repubicans voted for this bill, if 18 more republicans would have voted yes they could have sent this bill to the senate today, 24 democrats did not vote yes on this bill. If 18 more democrats had voted yes this bill could have been sent to the senate today. Now if they immediately start normal procedures they can have it to the senate by Thursday, Friday at the latest. there are at least two senate republicans that said they would vote for a stand alone extension even if it is not paid for so it looks like this could come down to 1 vote in the senate.

    Please Pelosi get this thing rolling, and people please keep calling Reid and beg that he allows for a vote on a a stand alone unemployment extension.

    correction it failed by 16 not 18 votes

  • patsy1950 06/29/2010 11:43am

    I just read Businessweek/online and the article said that House Ways & Means chairman Levin will re-introduce the bill tomorrow under regular procedures, stating that with just a majority needed it will pass the House. Don’t give up hope. I know many of you are really hurting bad, but this will get done, possibly after the 4th holiday vacation. We are just the pawns in a very cruel game by both Dems and Repubs. Good luck to us all….

  • Jess01869 06/29/2010 12:05pm

    yes…they are indeed toying with the American people. Congress needs a makeover.

    Why isn’t anyone noted the fact that the separate Bill S-3520 was sent to the Senate Finance Committee for review? Write to the Senators on that Committee and tell them to PASS the DAMN BILL, or else they will find themselves on the Unemployment lines! Hit them where it hurts too!

    This bill has been discussed in many forums including this one and some online media. Its been with the finance committee since 6/22 and may never come out to the floor. It is a standalone bill, but not paid for. My guess it won’t come to the floor if the Dems think it will be vetoed. The Dems need to step up to the plate and make it funded with stimulus monies. I don’t know if the Dems have any tricks up their sleeves and this is what is taking so long, but they are not winning any brownie points from me right about now. I know I have e-mailed & called both Dems & Repub senators daily, and the media. Everyone needs to be unrelentless with Congress, the president, mass media. We can’t give up.

    Fuck it, looks like it’s time for some Anarchy in the U.S.. I am a tradesman, and the only job I can get is with slumlords that couldnt give a shit if I pay taxes, have insurance, or even do quality work. Our government wants to make it impossible for small businesses to exist, they make it impossible to stay honest, so I say give it to them like they want. I am hungry, literally. I am now at the point that I gotta do what I gotta do to survive. We should set up tent cities in their neighborhoods and at their offices, so that they may see and suffer the reality that we are having to live. Maybe if we make a big enough mess, they will realize that this mess was their responsibility to prevent in the first place.

    everyone knows the obama administration is cleaning up after bush meltdown, now the republicans are using the political crutch of over spending to get re-elected. republicans are trying to get these corporate lobbyist backing to get major sponsorships and to get elected in office. I knew they would scapegoat anyone who got the presidency. I’m not from iowa i can’t farm some agriculture. i live in california were basketball players make more than a teacher or a doctor. most of these issues never hit home for the fortunate than they make us feel bad because all were trying to do is feed ourselves, and get back on our feet. the american people need to stand up and defend ourselves they tax us with no problem, but when there’s a problem they wanna turn there head and to the blame game. stop playing with our money, who give a fuck about new jersey and what the fuck there are doing there. we are all different, over saturated job markets and private sector lobbyist humanitarians we need fema

    its time to destroy and rebuild

    It’s quickly coming to a time that we need real change. I propose, when real change is made (by whatever means it takes) that the house and senate be comprised of 50% working class Americans. Yearly rotate the non-politicians similar to the process of filling a jury. During their service, they can’t be fired from their normal employment, they are housed with their families and paid the one year amount for the position they are filling. Their vote counts as a full count and a diverse field of professionals to be on hand to help them through the legalese. After your year of service, an amount equal to your house salary is then placed into a retirement plan such as a 401k. Only then could we entertain the idea that it is of the people, by the people and for the people.

    I just saw Reid on CSPAN 2 about another amendment & cloture vote on this bill, but came in at the tail end of it and couldn’t figure out what was going on. Does anyone know?

    I was watching also. Senator Reid needs to learn to speak clearer because I thought he said the small business bill and the unemployment extension have reached agreement and will be presented tomorrow. So I watched and listened 3 more times and that is what he said…

    HR 5618 – it’s not dead yet. Today they set aside rules to fast track the legislation. As a result a 2/3 majority was needed to pass the bill. That failed with 261 ayes failing to hit 2/3. The bill will be voted on again tomorrow and require only a 50% vote which would equate to 219 votes. Should be plenty to pass.

    patsy1950 06/29/2010 5:17pm

    I did read that. It looks like the Dems in the House will get 5618 passed, and then in the event the Senate cannot get their new bill passed 5618 will go to the Senate for vote.

    jbizzle85 06/29/2010 5:21pm

    so does that mean that it passed?

  • Comm_reply
    patsy1950 06/29/2010 5:31pm

    No, the bill has not passed in the House or the Senate. The House is going to vote on it tomorrow thru a regular vote and it is expected to pass the House. I read that Senator Reid will bring the Senate Dems version to the floor tomorrow. Hopefully, one of these bills gets passed by the Senate before the end of the week.

    I’m just nervouse about 4213 getting passed. Reid must feel like he has the votes to since he moved for cloture. Fingers crossed again!

  • Jess01869 06/29/2010 7:08pm

    I hope it’s not going to be stalled for the sake of a potential hurricane relief fund…although, then…everyone would need help.
