rich c, I agree with you, but please don’t lump all “those tier 1 and 2 people” togther just because of one person’s ignorance! (they are probably employed and pretending to be one of us!) I am one of those tier 1 people, who by the way will be out of benefits by the end of the month if HR 4213 is not passed soon and very soon! I have also been writing letters, making phone calls, etc. etc. for support of my situation/extension as well as for yours and the other “99’ers” (adding a TierV). I will continue to petition, write letters, emails and make phone calls on behalf of all the people before me who have already exhausted their benefits as I truly believe that all of the “99’ers” still need assistance and should get it! I hope that you and the other 99’ers will do the same for me and the thousands like me as we all need all the help we can get and we need to do it together!

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.

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.

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…

For everyone who is fighting for additional weeks/Tier 5, please call Congress today and ask if they will be adding additional weeks to this bill.

Then they were to big to fail and we bailed then out insteads of the working class and unemployed! shame shame shame. Please inform your fellow congressmen on both sides this TIER V greater than 99 weeks unemployment extension issue WILL cost them the election. Not health care not the rest. This TIER V will. do you have hearts?. Pay for this anyway you have to but pass it now. PLease wake your friends in WAshington. THis is not going away it will get louder and louder until TIER V is passed!!! This is the worst job market in history!!!!! The future is now TIER V TIER V TIER V godbless you and godbless america!!!

Dear Congress, Has your staff told you or showed you the thousands upon thousands of calls and letters in regards to TIER V UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSIONS for the 2 million who have used 99 weeks and need a lifeline emergency extension? All house and senate are getting them in volume. Democrats and republicans. But the silence on TIER V is amazing!!! It seems to be falling upon deaf ears in congress!! A march on Washington is being planned now. Lives are in the balance on this!!! These Americans by no fault of their own Cannot find work after nearly two years!!! We are in an economic depression not seen since the 1930’s. An economic tsunami is coming to every shore in America soon. Economist will call it a double dip recession That was unexpected. I will call it a part 2 depression.

Tier v people, Remember NELP. They have been silent and invisible on TIER V as each day week month goes by where we cant pay our rent buy groceries pay basic bills lose our houses our hope our dignity. When i went to the UNEMPLOYED FRIENDS websight and posted my thoughts on NELP I was immediately banned from the sight? WTF with unemployed friends like that who needs enemies? Tier V people do you notice that we seem to be coming up with our own ideas- march on washington petitions calling and emailing president press congress? We are fighting this alone from square one when an organization has all the tools and options and contacts with press and Washington like NELP. This is wrong. I get the impression that NELP thinks we should have found a job by now When jobs have never been more scarce!!! Keep calling and emailing the president and congress and the press!!!

My state has Tier 4, however the unemployment rate in Texas is 8.2%,it has to be 8.5% and over for them to give us more unemployment. This still presents an obstacle. So what do we do now? Something other than Tiers must be done.

My Tier IV ran out 3 weeks ago….not sure what I will do now.

Crime & Drugs Inc. always hiring

Some “unemployed” residents find crime to be their best source of steady income. Judge Richard Stevens of Western County Court says he noticed a 50-percent increase in the number of criminal cases handled by his court..

No doubt it’s going to get worse ..with people losing their benefits ..UGH

Is this a workable link or are you asking for everyone to get on Youtube, facebook, twitter, etc., and complain? I just clicked your link and it didn’t work.

What you try’n to say? LOL.

MsDubya 03/22/2010 1:27pm

Everyone should write their Senators and Representatives and keep writing. I have written Schumer, Gilibrand and McMahon at least three times already. Today, I put in a letter to the White House.

Write, write, write, like we did before. NELP doesn’t appear to be helping they even say that there is not talk of additional help until the end of the year.
