    You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Children are going homeless as a direct result of your actions. Look your family in the face and tell them how you just wrote off millions of fellow American citizens… good people from across this country who would most assuredly be earning a living if it werent for these extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in.

    You and the others who voted ‘no’ on the extension of unemployment can be thanked by everyone for the ‘New Homeless’. I’m going to do everything in my power to organize those impacted by this poor decision, and create a scene so big the media wont be able to ignore it. It’s the only way those who arent rich can have themselves heard by our so-called representatives.

    This Democratic senator only votes 61% of the time with his party. This guy needs to be voted out. He needs to replace that “D” with an “R” for Repugs! He is a disgrace to his party.

    well, if he votes 61% with his party, that is a good thing. that means he doesn’t vote for the party, but the issue at hand.
    democrats could of passed the unemployment extension bill by taking it from the stimulus, but NO, they just keep bankrupting our country!
    Stimulus money is being wasted every day! If fact, more has been wasted on garbage that doesn’t even help the economy. And the jobs they promised, where are they? hmmm, they are in bigger government!
    so, even though people think the republicans are bad for blocking the bill, they are PROTECTING our country. We keep borrowing money from china, etc.

    I pay my bills on my own & have been unemployed for 13 1/2 months, have a Masters Degree & want to work. I apply for 40 jobs a week in various ways from professional jobs, to waitress jobs, to grocery store work & everything in between. I still have a balance with the unemployment extended benefits that expired on the June 5th. That frozen balance will make the difference of me becoming homeless or not in the next few weeks. If you’ve never had to worry about money before,count your blessings. I am like hundreds of thousands of people all scared out of their mind that they’re going to become homeless & would give anything in the world to finally get a job if I could only figure out who will hire me right now. This is an emergency situation. I’d rather be working than writing this email requesting more support. I respectfully request that you pass HR 5618 to Restore the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act of 2010. Thank you.
    With Gratitude,
    St. Petersburg, Florida

    All these comments look like a hate blog. Health care…ever hear them talking about 18,000 Americans dying every year or just the having to have insurance (that they should carry anyway) which keeps folks off EMTALA. Cornhusker kickback, you protected Nebraska. The DEMS screwed it up by not doing it for everybody. This hate blog doesnt seem to carry much substance but alot of low level insult.

    Thanks for nothing…..why vote no on the dream act. Hope you are a native American because if not, your just cold hearted.

    I’m disappointed that you voted with republicans on the Blunt Amendment. So, I guess you and Rick Santorum are in agreement. I can’t believe you are in favor of the GOP attack on women’s health and attaching it to a transportation bill! You are on the wrong side of history.
