    • On April 12, 2010, by RealEstateSizzle - Get the National Flood Insurance Program OUT of this Bill! The Senate has left the housing industry without Flood Insurance for two weeks because it is hidden in this Unemployment Benefits Bill. Restore Flood Insurance today and THEN deal with the issue of Unemployment Benefits. Hundreds of thousands of homebuyers have been affected by this lapse in Flood Insurance at the hands of the Federal Government. This "packaging" of unrelated issues within the same bill has to stop! A Filibuster on Employment Benefits should not hurt the Flood Insurance program, but that is exactly what has happened. Thousands of homebuyers have lost their escrow deposits on home purchases over this mess and the US Senate has single-handedly put a STOP to any real estate closing which required Flood Insurance for two weeks, which they took a vacation. Unacceptable!

    • On March 25, 2010, by dartcanyon - Anyone watching the news this morning should have seen the report on the fact that Obama is going to ask for 1 TRILLION dollars for Haiti. Now that is laughable!! Why not ask for that money for Real Americans who need it because Washington coat us our jobs. If Washington can come up with that money, and they will, where the hell does that come from but they say there is no money to add Tiers to help the long term unemployed?? People are rising up against the healthcare nonsense and if they think all of us will sit back and let them kick us under the bus much longer they better think again. There is NO discussion at all about added Tiers. I have searched every government site and none of them are working on anything for us but let a foreign country come along and need and boom.....they have their wishes granted. I am appalled more every day by what I see this government doing to the common people.
