    Those who vote for unconstitutional warrentless wiretaps and vote to protect the criminals that violate our privacy are not worthy of the position they hold. It’s impossible to justify undermining the very essence of our constitution in order to protect it. Another sell out.

    Thanks! for voting nay on S 3101 (Medicare Competitive Bidding Delay)…lets just turn this country into a socialistic society. Do you realize that by allowing competitive bidding you are making large companies get bigger and shutting down thousands of smaller Durable Medical Equipment companies, thus thousands of jobs have been lost. Medicare recipients have not been educated on this issue and are in for a scare. Thanks again….greed and money= US government!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a fellow republican and would like to suggest and request that you as well as all other republicans vote to pass s.1230 and I urge congress to get this done soon as intrest rates are rising which will cause a slow down in the rebound of the realestate industry.

    Senator Bunning,and the party of NO…

    First I would like to offer my condolences that you had to miss watching a basketball game last night,and instead felt that it was more important to
    block the very thin lifeline that has been helping unemployed families
    keep a modest amount of food on their tables.
    Obviously, you can not relate to anyone who is below a six figure income through no fault of their own,but every minute that you obstruct these
    Unemployment Benefits extensions, more children are going hungry,more houses are not able to keep their lights and heat on, and more families will be evicted or foreclosed upon in the middle of winter.

    Can you even begin to imagine what that feels like as a parent? Obviously not.We are all watching C-Span, and you should be aware that no one has any doubt that your actions last night sprung from anything but corruption, greed and ambition.

  • briandamron46 02/27/2010 6:26am

    unemployment extension.!
    i find it hard to believe that its too much on our budget to keep people in their homes and to feed our people especially our children. you are a pathetic excuse for a human being. (as a working gulf war veteran that put his life on the line and had friends that did not come back.) you need to be dragged off the senate floor to the front steps of congress and be shot by a military firing squad for treason against the american people, and many other members also that do not care for the average american, but will help the wealthy and lobbyists when the revolution happens and it will some day i hope it ends up like the french revolution then you will get yours, what goes around comes around.

    Was that comment written by Senator Bunning, or one of his employees?

  • purplelilac3084 03/06/2010 7:14am

    I am proud he stood up to the white house! I have been on unemployment for 1 1/2 years, and I am not angry at him. They passed a bill to pay as you go, and this is what he stood up for! He, like no other member of congress, is concerned they are bankrupting our country and OUR children and grandchildren are going to suffer from paying these trillions of dollars they do, without a blink of an eye. China owns more of our country then we do, so WAKE up people and realize he did the right thing.

    If you are apart of the American unemployed or share the same views as the unemployed and want to have a peaceful march on Washington to show that we do need our unemployment or in support of unemployment, email me at unemploymentmarch@yahoo.com. This has to be done, a peaceful stand needs to take place soon to make a difference. Before a lot of Americans lose the little bit that they do have. We didn’t ask for the economy to be this way and it is not our fault that we can not find jobs all at the same time. We worked all of our lives and now that we need help, the people in congress is saying no! We are the ones that help pay for wars, national disasters, and the congressmen paychecks. Now they are telling us that they cannot pass a bill so we can feed and house our families. What is more important the “Oil Spill” or the unemployed and their children. I don’t think so, it’s time for a peaceful march, email me at unemploymentmarch@yahoo.com, to make a peaceful stand now.

  • AnnaSchaefer 06/20/2010 11:26pm

    You and the rest of the Republicans are so transparent! President Obama, as well as us Americans, know what you are doing. Stalling and not voting on what the people want and need in this country. Do the job you were elected to do, and start voting! Your tactics in stalling is only going to back fire on you all. Show our President some respect. How you treat him, is a reflection on how you treat us Americans. We may have been fooled in the past, but not anymore! We The People have spoken by electing President Obama into office. We need change and we need it now! And quit blaming President Obama for the disaster in the Gulf. Enough is enough!

    I am asking to please get something done about the unemployment extension. I just ran out of benefits today…I have worked non-stop until 2008 when my shop closed. This is ridiculous that I have to sit down and figure out how I am going to feed my son. I have a degree and the skills to aquire a job, the only problem is there aren’t any jobs. Come on now, please tell me how I am going to pay to keep a roof over my child’s head and feed him? Can you answer that? Oh I forgot you already showed your concern for the american people with your NAY vote.

  • pelmof 06/29/2010 4:46am

    Dear Senator Bunning,
    S.3520 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

  • C570482 07/04/2010 12:24pm

    Dear Senator Bunning:

    I am writing to implore you to vote for HR 5618, S 3551 or one of the other bills to restore emergency unemployment compensation. I am aware that you have concerns about the funding for these extentions. I believe you all can come up with a solution that is a good fit.

    It has been noted that in the past you have against for recent Bills to extend emergency unemployment benefits. Knowing you were a Major League Baseball player (with a great record) before becoming a Senator, you may not have a recent memory of being unemployed with no jobs in sight.

    As you know, The Congressional Budget Office estimates that every federal dollar invested in unemployment insurance assistance provides a return of $1.90 in economic activity.

    Please know citizens are watching the actions of Congress.

    Sincerely,

    Regina Poole
    Philadelphia, PA
