    • On September 28, 2008, by Anonymous - Can we try to keep a positive tone on this forum, please. First off there is no way the Dems could add the UI extension to the bailout bill. It would have made that mess... messier. Who cares if the extension passes under HR7110 or VXYZ. The Dems are doing the best they can to implement it before the break. The blame game does no one any good. Let's see what happens over the next few days. Most of us are stressed out to the max anyway, let's try not to make it worse amongst ourselves!

    • On September 28, 2008, by Anonymous - HR 7110 is a bad bill it is the 56 billion dollar stimulus that was never meant to pass, 7110 is the reason we do not have an unemployment extension, 7110 is why the democrats have refused to allow unemployment to be added to the CR or the bailout, 7110 is a political ploy used to manipulate voters int thinking the democrats tried to get an unemployment extension but the Pugs wouldn't let them. 7110 is a insult to our intelligence. By pushing 7110 we will never get anything we need to focus on just getting an unemployment extension. This bill will never pass it is just lip service to help the democrats get more votes in the election. Don't be a sheeple
