    WE MUST REALLY CONSIDER THE FACT THAT CHINA and JAPAN WILL SOON BECOME THE SOLE ECONOMIC POWER IN THE NEXT DECADE MAKING US RELY ON THEM BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THE ONLY SOLUTION IS FOR THE USA TO ‘GROW SOME BALLS AND START REALLY –TAXING- CHINA REPEATEDLY- BEFORE IT IS TOO- TOO- TOO- LATE!!!,,,,,,,
    ,STOP ALLOWING ANYMORE ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO THE USA! Not even a ON A WORK VISA …ALL hurting Americans and 99ers must STOP BUYING ANYTHING MADE IN CHINA OR JAPAN

    THE USA NEEDS TO TAX THE GOODS ENTERING THE USA FROM EVERY MANUFACTURER THAT LEFT THE USA AND IS NOW DOING BUSINESS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!….USE THE TAX TO PAY FOR ADDITIONAL UNEMPLOYEMENT TIERS!

    “Both Houses need over 50% of either house to pass a bill on to the President. For an ordinary bill to pass each chamber or house of the US congress, it needs a simple majority of yea votes which would be 50% + 1 vote. In the US House of Representatives, ordinarily there are a total of 435 seated Representatives. 50% of 435 is 217.5. As there are no half votes, the fewest yea votes required for an ordinary bill to pass the House would normally be 218. In the US Senate, ordinarily there are a total of 100 seated Senators. 50% of 100 is 50. A simple majority is 50% + 1, thus the fewest yea votes required for an ordinary bill to pass the US Senate is 51.”

    Lees bill is headed to the floor but they are still gathering additional Co-Sponsors and they are working on the Repu blicans. There is some discussion that there are many Republicans who support this bill. BUT, they are AFFRAID TO GO AGAAINST the ENTIRE REPUBLICAN TEAM AS A WHOLE, each trying to decide who will be the first to show public support and when it would be best to do so, WITHOUT being looked at ‘bad’ by there fellow Republican piers!

    COLORADO anyone have any tier four updates, I called to claim yesterday and CUB line said that I do not have any weeks available to claim, my understanding was that tier 4 was to be made payable the week ending 2-19, I spoke to someone else that should be getting tier 4 she said no funds have been added to her account.

    Any info would be great, I am on hold to talk to someone now but they often do not answer for several hours.

    Hello fellow unemployed. I used to blog in here but found a temp. job for awhile. Was wondering what other open congress unemployment sights are getting comments in lately, and trying to catch up on the latest.
    Has Nancym written anywhere that any body knows? I had some questions to ask her about deciphering the jargon in reference to the Obama extension for the 2011 year.
