    I saw this and was wondering why is Rep. Rangel introducing a tax relief bill? I looked over the first part of it and it made sense. Then I found the part about increasing the estimated taxes on “certain corporations” from 100.25% to 126.75%!

    This bill punishes achievement, just like the IRS Early Retirement Penalty, which Rep. Rangel also supports. It will help to drive “certain corporations” from our country to someplace where they can do business without being punished by the IRS.

    It’s not amazing this can be introduced and passed in two (2) days with zero co-sponsors since everyone is focused on unconstitutional government health care. Meanwhile, the FairTax bill (HR 25), which has numerous co-sponsors and would give all corporations incentive to do business in the USA and simplify our taxes as citizens, sits idle.

    Then Senators who oppose this bill are attacking the middle class americans like myself who work in the construction industry. They want to piss and bitch and moan about boo hoo whos gonna pay for our unemployment.? Hmm i am gonna guess we are going to pay for it our selves, with the govts ability to throw trillions of dollars to banks, automakers supervising boards(not the workers), and yet they can not help out its own citizens. I know that with out the middle class construction workers NOBODY would have a car to drive built by americans, on roads that are built by american workers, to buildings and/or work built by american workers. Yet the senators bitch and moan wondering about taxes and shit. Set your political bickering aside step the f- up and take care of the people who put your fat asses in office. Otherwise we will getyou the hell out its simple.

    Both of the senators from my state are voting yea for this. I would hope everyone posting here is writing their senators a nice email to voice their opinion. We dont have alot of campaign $ to give but we can give them a good piece of our mind, the more the better. I doubt they read this site but I know at least their aids read the emails. One could only hope it gets passed on.

    You’re looking at this all wrong. Extending unemployment benefits extends the rate of unemployment which delays our recovery, which costs our children and grandchildren dearly in terms of debt service (INTEREST on our $14Trillion national debt). Additionally, this bill is not just about unemployment benefits. It an attack on the middle class. For example, there’s a provision in this bill that mandates that every penny of all income coming to a small services business (less that 4 service people) have to pay unemployment tax (on every penny) as well as FICA that everyone else has to pay. We are already paying the 7.5% FICA on every penny. But to have to pay and additional 7.5% on every penny of income when you’re the ONLY employee, is so completely ridiculous and will tremendously hurt small business and the middle class.

    Are you blind? Where was the out cry about this war GW put us in trillions a year, money we don’t have. Where was the out cry of the bail out of banks, wall street, and car makers. Yes there are those people who are on unemployment who are not looking for a job just sitting a collecting money but what about the people who have looked and found nothing. My job closed 6 months ago, they didn’t give us a warning at all the $1200 a month I get from unemployment is not enough to survive on even with an additional $400 a month for child support.

    My question is are you and the gop gonno put me and my family up in your homes if i get evicted.

    The problem with politicans and politics in general is that they stick with thier party instead of the good of the people. Bipartisan does not exist they never come together and agree on anything, and you people put this people to represent who, sure not the lower or working class

    GW provided more unemployment extensions then oboma has, he extended benefits every time the national rate went over 6.5% and kept extending as long as the rate stayed over 6.5%. So on this issue GW would be a god send for us.

    The 6.5% threshhold for keeping extending unemployment benefits is the one Bush policy that I wish would have carried over to the Oboma administration

    Under Democratic control in 2001, the 2009-2012 budget was showing an annual $850B surplus. The Republican White House/Congress turned that into a $1.2B deficit for each of those years – which is about a $2T swing. So don’t even come in here and post that Dems just spend money without regard for the impact.

    2001 vs 2012
    The U.S. budget situation has deteriorated significantly since 2001, when the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) forecast average annual surpluses of approximately $850 billion from 2009-2012. The average deficit forecast in each of those years is now approximately $1,215 billion. The New York Times analyzed this roughly $2 trillion “swing,” separating the causes into four major categories along with their share:
    Recessions or the business cycle (37%);
    Policies enacted by President Bush (33%);
    Policies enacted by President Bush and supported or extended by President Obama (20%);
    New policies from President Obama (10%).

    I’m soooo sick of hearing who’s fault it is… The fact is, this country is in turmoil. Right now, who gives a chit who’s fault it is? It’s broken… so instead of pointing fingers… FIX IT. Everyone is so busy wasting time placing blame when all that energy could be put into doing something about it! It reminds me of a group of people standing in a circle over a dying man. Instead of giving this man CPR, they’re pointing fingers at who took his breath away. By the time they stop their bullheaded BS, the man is dead.

    I agree with you loganstorm. Does it really matter at this point who is at fault? Republicans & Democrats who have been in control over the years are to “blame”. We’re all f’ing Americans and should be helping our own. I know voting in November is important, but I don’t know how we will all be contacted on where to vote if we don’t have a HOME address. Will they send our mail “under the bridge” where we’ll all be huddling? Let’s quit bitchin’ about who is at fault (like our government does) and continue to email, call and ask for help. That is what we can do again and again and agin – so do it!

    The Progressive playbook (including both parties) is to divide and conquer. If the people are constantly arguing about who’s at fault, the ruling class can continue to shove chit down our collective throats until we finally choke. It’s up to us to see the bigger picture and do something about it! Vote out anyone and everyone who hasn’t convinced you that spending and taxes MUST be cut dramatically and immediately!

    This is the most tired argument of all! GW also inherited a failing economy and 9/11 pushed it off the cliff. Remember when Clinton was still in office they were accusing the newly elected but not sitting president GW for “talking down the economy?!” I am tired of hearing how Clinton created all of these surpluses YOU PEOPLE forget historical fact, it was the mid-term election and the newly elected house leader Newt Gingrich who mastered the “contract with America,” that Bill Clinton kicked and scratched from even being implemented, remember he allowed the federal government to be closed for 8 days trying to weild his power and he got clobbered for it, then the contract with America was inacted and the measures did give us the largest surpluses in recent history!

    Well said…The recent commments concern me, I wish people would understand the contents of a bill before they point fingers. The reality is both Dems and Repubs should take responsability for there actions. This bill was earmarked to help the unemployed, but was packed with dem pet projects totaling billions of dollars. Very early on Reid had the option to strip it out but refused, he was also asked to use stimulus money and refused again. Even the press release on this website does not address the facts, but instead points fingers. People need to make informed opinions based on facts, not on media peception or opinions. We have a new president that needs to take responsability for this country.

    You have got to be kidding me…I don’t care if you are a Republican or a Democrat,you have to remember that our economy was much better off when Clinton was in office…I am shocked that there is anyone out there that would even entertain that thought.When Clinton was president we all had jobs,were taking vacations,celebrating the holidays…and the world was a much kinder and gentler place.To all my fellow my americans who may be without food,shelter,transportation…Please know that may prayers are with you and I will continue to pray that the fat cats get their head out of their ass…GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Clinton was a tool,
    If you are looking at the jobless rate for the 8 years Clinton was in office it was 5.2% it was also the same for George jr 5.2%, who was also a tool.
    Remember NAFTA was put into law in 1994 which fostered one of the largest movements of componant and drug manufactures to set up shop across the border for cheaper labor and no tariffs. I spent the past 25 years overseeing us manufacturing operations in forign countries mainly during the Clinton years, and most likely would still have a job if it was not for my decision to not support that agenda. My decision was to support “Made in the USA” which ultimatly put me out of a job. Be warned dem or repub is in the pocket of big business this I am sure of, just look at AIG.

    You are an ignorant dip. I trust you never use or need any assistance from OUR government. Must be nice to have your husband work and sit at home doing house work. And probably not doing that well. These are extreme times we’re in, not as if this was 5 or years ago. are you blind!!!! These people are out of work due to no fault of their own.

    Do the MATH idiot…
    For every $1.00 provided businesses makes money. The government receives their state and local tax.. it was determined that $1.90 comes back into the economy. Do you really think people are saving that measly $300 per week. Yeah getting rich of that. It contributes to the economy, guess what your local stores WONT get anything now. Great job!!!

    Corporate tax rates are already much lower than they are for individuals. I read recently that corporations pay, on average, 12%. Corporations have a ridiculously good deal in this country. Taxes are not about “punishment,” they’re about contributing to public infrastructure and public amenities, and corporations are not paying even a fraction of their fair share at this dismal point in our history. The really sad thing is that, as a country, we’ve been here before, where private interests clobbered public good, but I guess we have to learn this lesson yet again. I’ve already learned it, so can I get an exemption, pretend that I’m not in this with everybody else, as the conservatives seem to want to do?

    Nope, just extends the deadlines.

    Bringing over this article regarding how the press is getting info regarding the recent extension bill wrong…


    But what really caught my eye was this part…

    UPDATE (10:30 a.m. CT): There have been a number of questions about why the various politicians continue to refer to the provisions in the jobs bill as an “unemployment extension.” I think there are several key reasons. Unlike the Senate bill, the House version of the bill apparently includes additional weeks of benefits for those who have exhausted the current coverage. It’s not clear to anyone I’ve spoken to how that will be resolved with the Senate version.

    CNN/HLN just had a piece on about people who are cheating on unemployment and that Sen. Byh, I think, opposes the passage of what the Senate just approved. There are cheaters in every system including the very people who run this country from Washington. Until each and every one of them is honest, straightforward and does NOTHING wrong then I don’t want to hear a damn word about anyone else. The vast majority of the unemployed are honest people who look for work regularly and can prove that.

    I don’t see any of the crooks in Washington being denied paychecks, benefits or anything else even when they get caught and that seems to be a pretty regulat thing with the fat daddies. They are playing with out lives, giving money to foreign countries, foreigners in this country and approving piddly bills that are really stupid and unnecessary. Take the money from NASA and take care of Real Americans out of work. We don’t need to be in space and have no business there. Keep that money and the exorbitant paychecks to play in space right here on terra firma and we’ll all benefit.
