    Ya, I thought about that too. Well, I’ll find the local office here and check out the environment. Make a few fliers with this site on it and see how it goes.

    This bill WILL pass!! The current economic mess dictates it!!! It will be political suicide to vote against this crucial bill! The economic stimulus checks plus the extensions could very well end this recession. To vote against would almost be treason!

    EVERYONE go to http://www.unemployedworkers.org/april_16th_action.cfm . They are fighting for us and have a link on how to find your congressman and contact them. Lets plan this and do it right.

    It’s gotten quiet over there. I’m racking up comments on this side for now.

    Somehow I must be missing something or ignorant. If Senator Reid manages to tie the bill to the War Supplemental and Bush veto’s it. You people think it will not pass in the end?. Somehow I believe we have accomplished more than what we hoped at this point. The faxes and e-mails that the Republican have ignored will be acknowledged thru Senator Reid. I think this is positive.

    IllinoisCS, I AGREE 100%!!!! People are scared! People are desperate! America is not in the mood to wait for these insane political games between parties to iron out! WE NEED THIS HELP! AND WE HAVE NEEDED IT FOR MONTHS!!!! These people had better get something done!!! Because WE are literally starving and becoming homeless while these criminals in office give away HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS IN FOREIGN AID!!!!

    Yes, I am here for good. I have read some of the rubbish left on that site. It’s OUT of control.

  • Patriots 04/18/2008 7:33pm

    I agree IllinoisCS. I really hope it never comes to that but if you search the web and read what is really going on out there it is pretty frightening.

    I am currectly working on an actual petition on this bill. I need the latest stats:

    1. How many of us will lose their benefits by the end of the year. I think it was posted somewhere???
