This exerpt from “Senate expected to OK unemployment benefits extension today”
By Annie Lowrey 7/20/10 8:44 AM

“The bill does not include an extension of the $25-a-week Federal Additional Compensation funds, tacked onto many unemployment checks. It also does not include any of the other provisions originally included in or proposed for the jobs bill or extenders package: It does not close tax loopholes, or provide Medicare funding to states, or include funds to keep teachers and other state employees working. It also does not create an additional fifth tier of benefits; federal extensions only continue in states with higher than an 8 percent unemployment rate, and the maximum weeks of state and federal benefits remains ninety-nine.”

Just got back from Help for Homeowners Community Event here in Denver.
Drove 52 miles round trip, waited 3 hours to talk to a “counselor”.
They told me to go get a job at McDonalds or Walmart and pay my mortgage!

Where is all the money going for this program?
Are they helping anybody who has lost their job/career at no fault of their own? Anybody, please post if you have had success in a modification.

Star 58, I hope you are correct, and it is good to think positive, but I never thought they would leave for July 4th vacation without extending benefits, I thought for sure one side would care and give in but they showed their true colors. Why I feel that they will not vote yes is because Repbus now know that they will have Byrd’s interim senator, hopefully as a yes vote, but it will not be for a while because of the Gov. 1 to 1/2 week delay, so the Repubs have more time to make the Dem’s look bad. They are not worried about the children of the unemployed who may not be going to college because of their decisions, who knows what is gong to happen down the road, we can reduce the debt throught the years but the children of today only have today.

Tier 5 is absolutely need by ALL Unemployed. Stop the games on the deadlines when there are only a few this Bill will help. Remove the deadlines and incorporate new TIERS 5, 6 for at least one year American Unemployed are suffering. Your ODJFS need to be contacted on their practices of stopping the unemployed not to file claims this is wrong it will not provide true unemployemnt rate numbers. Do something right for a change you know there is job issue in this country if 99 weeeks can not find work and the 26, 43 weeks can ot find work why are penalizing the complete 99 week unemployed. Get a Tier 5 , 6 BILL.

The operative word is BEFORE Obama. I may not agree with everything he does but at least give him the chance that everybody gave Bush. (for two terms)

I got through on the phone today, they told me that they have started paying everything but SEB2 and that they are still doing the programming for SEB2 and that it could take another week.

Any other Colorado folks, expect to wait a week or more for SEB2

Good Luck to us all today!!! It kind of makes me worry that everywhere online and on the news keeps saying that it should pass with no problem today… Just like one of those famous last words type situations

With 232 “yay” are we at the simple majority? I believe so, but am afraid to assume that I am correct.

Senator Frank Lautenberg will replace the late Senator Byrd as Chairman of Homeland Security Appropriations. Senator Lautenberg is not a newcomer he’s been a senator since 1982.

Senate Democratic leaders are preparing to turn to a package of tax extensions for individuals and businesses as early as May 20 providing the House passes a Senate-amended version of extenders legislation (HR 4213) that the House had approved earlier.

The House is slated to act on the measure on May 19, but revenue offsets continue to pose a problem, and negotiations between the House and Senate taxwriters remain ongoing.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said on May 17 that he expects to wrap up work in the next few days on a financial regulatory reform bill (Sen 3217) and then turn to the extenders package with an eye on final approval before beginning the week-long Memorial Day recess that starts on May 31. The extenders bill also includes a long-term extension of unemployment benefits and health insurance for the unemployed, as well as a five-year delay of scheduled cuts in reimbursement payments to…

Wasn’t he already a Senator? For NJ? That would mean that there’s an opening in NJ. I thought the Senator had to reside in the state they were representing, how could that happen?

Cost issues and revenue offsets have also posed problematic for a planned jobs incentive package that Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., wants to soon mark up in committee. Republicans are demanding assurances that Senate Democratic leaders will address the estate tax dilemma, which is set to revert to its original 55-percent tax rate at the end of 2010. Baucus has been negotiating with ranking committee member Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., and Finance Committee member Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., on how to proceed on the estate tax. Both Kyl and Lincoln have been pushing to set the exemption level at $5 million for individuals and reduce the tax rate to 35 percent. Kyl has proposed several revenue offsets to Baucus, but the two lawmakers remain at odds and have not reached an agreement on how to pay for the bill.

“I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong is subject to some sort of political pressure that is — again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown,” Barton said. “So I apologize.” – WHAT AN ASSHOLE! Barton, why dont you and all your Republican colleagues go skim the ocean for the next 20 years!


The unemployed and YES, THE SO-CALLED, “99ers”!!!!need their benefits and NEED THEM NOW!! THIS IS DISGUSTING..AND MAKES MANY angry at the government. I pray that everyone who is without their benefits is hanging on, and I know, as I am, by a thin thread. There are too many people out of work applying for the same jobs!! I applied EVERYWHERE!!..No call backs…nothing..let’s pray for relief soon…

lordgotmilk 07/19/2010 9:00pm


I know I shouldn’t do this, but I’m going to take a stab at how politicians think. Reid is bringing 4213 back to the table because he believes he has the votes to pass the pork filled version of the bill. With more and more attention being paid on this issue (leading to Obama’s “call out” today and the press attention it got), they have it in place in case the vote on 4213 fails again. They will have the ability to get 5618 on the schedule right away.

Reid would be content just dragging it on till 4213 passes, but thanks to Obama finally stepping up and calling them out on the issue and the media attention it garnered, he’s gonna be under pressure to get this done, then get something through that will address the 99er’s.

doctors who provide services through Medicare and Medicaid.

Taxwriters need to come up with approximately $50- to $60-billion in revenue offsets, according to some estimates. House Ways and Means Chairman Sander Levin, D-Mich., had said earlier that he expected to use a phased-in change of the tax treatment of carried interest, currently used to compensate investment fund managers. The provision would raise approximately $20 billion, but the Senate has yet to sign off on the proposal. Other revenue raisers under consideration include changes in pension funding rules, various tax-compliance provisions, and funds derived from an increase in the oil spill trust fund excise tax. Lawmakers are also reportedly considering requiring certain S corporation partners, primarily lawyers and lobbyists, to pay the Medicare tax on their earnings, which would raise nearly $10 billion.

minimoe 07/19/2010 8:06pm

I really do not understand why they are voting on 4213 tomorrow and NOT 5618.. They even read 5618 twice last week so they could put on the calendar for voting. Now all of a sudden they are going to do 4213 instead. Just dont get it. They are talking about how important it is to get us our benefits back ASAP withouth any further delays. So why not just push 5618 through first. Instead now we have to HOPE 4213 passes the first vote tomorrow, then wait for it to go back to house for vote (i dont know how long this would take? would house be able to vote on it the very next day, wednesday?) and then HOPE it passes there, and then wait for President to sign it.. I just dont understand why they would go this route. We just cant wait any longer

The “99ers”, those that will not be helped by ANY current extension bill were talked about on Nightly News tonight.

Congrats to all those out there that are fighting this battle.

We are getting big media attention now (finally).

NOW is the time for anyone of those 1,400,000 that exhausted all extensions already, without finding work, to do EVERYTHING possible to let all of America know of our plight! Even all those still on the extensions that will be renewed need to think about what will happen when they end all too soon. There WILL NOT be enough jobs by then!

Use the November elections as a tool.

Media, media, media!!!

Our survival depends on it!

There are many of us out here fighting tooth and nail, but we need EVERYONE unemployed to join the fight if we hope to win!

The FACTS are that the REAL unemployment rate now is higher than 1931!

Star58 07/10/2010 5:40am

My husband and I were talking….He seems to think that the Repubs will flip when they come back. It’s all to make voters think that this is all the Dems fault and that they are giving in “out of the goodness of their hearts” and vote for them. They all know that this is an emergency and should be paid for from emergency funds. So all babies born will have over a hundred thousand dollars in debt on their backs. What ever happened to “it takes money to make money”? The rich have been saying that for years. Everyone forgets that the money will not be worth that much 50 years from now. If that’s the case we have had the equivalent of thousands of dollars of debt through the years.

Does anyone know New Jersey’s unemployment rate? Senator Frank Lautenberg of NJ (democrat) took Byrd’s place. Final vote needed perhaps? Write him!

Jess01869 07/19/2010 3:30pm

I hope Snowe and Collins don’t back out since the 60th vote would be there…tomorrow is a big day for the unemployed. If it does pass, how long til it’s on Obama’s desk to sign?
