    We are displeased with your NAY vote on H.R.5749. Please be aware that unemployed Republicans in ILLINOIS won’t be voting for you or the other Republicans anymore, they will be voting for Democrats. The most upsetting idea you and your Republican Cohorts presented is that a person would be eligible for a year of unemployment benefits after working only a week! That is VERY misleading, it makes it seem like a person would be eligible for a large amount of money, when that is NOT the case. People need to know the truth. The truth is each state has eligibility requirements and stipulations for earning a certain amount in a certain period of time in order to be even eligible for any state benefits. The amount of the state benefit is only about 1/3 of your previously salary, and depends on the total amount earned while working during the look back period. Here in ILLINOIS you need to earn a minimum of $1600 in the look back period which consists of 4 quarters. Therefore a person who worked part time for one week and earned $1600 in that week would only be paid $50 a week for 26 weeks. Is $50 a full benefit to you? For this little amount of money, you and the other Republicans jeopardized this legislation, you are making millions of people continue to hurt and be desperate. We are not happy with you or the other Republicans, now your job is in jeopardy.

    Vote yes for H.R. 2296 BATFE Reform.

    This resolution corrects some misinterpretations by the BATFE which have resulted in problems in the past. This currently has wide bipartisan support so I am requesting you support it also.

    Dear Congressman Roskam,

    h.r.5618 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 consequences for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again—h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
