    • On December 17, 2010, by Abaratarrr - Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi could have given us a tier 5 at anytime, they still could if they wanted to, all they have to do is attach a 3706 to the continuing resolution or the defense bill, it would guarantee passage, they refuse to help us. Thia is the only president and only congress in US history not to extend unemployment when the unemployment rate has been at 7.2% or higher. We are suffering more and longer under worse conditions than anytime in US history, This administration and leadership has the WORST RECORD IN US HISTORY when it comes to helping the unemployed. Please urge your representatives to vote no on this bill unless help for the long term unemployed is attached.
