    Thank you Abaratarr for clearing things up for MrsDee. She obviously is not informed. And you MrsDee, FYI my project would have taken me into retirement if the president during his bailout to the banks would have had lending stimpulations to work hand in hand with the very worthless Infra Structure Stimulas Packages he put together. If he would have 100’s of thousands of people in the Building and Land Development industry would be back to work. And no I did not vote for the inexperienced public servant.

    Honey I’m informed…Coburn did block it. You are lucky you are near retirement, most of us will never be able to afford to retire.

    Really, what was the date that coburn blocked the bill? A vote would have to have been scheduled first. He never blocked it, he threatened to, but never got the chance because reid never scheduled a unanimous consent vote. Never scheduled a vote period until it was to late.

    I am in the same boat as everyone here. It sure sounded like we would be getting an extension if you listened to the news or read the newspapers.
    This was a HUGE LIE!

    I went online a re-applied for benefits. Everyone here…please do the same.
    The unemployment percentage is going to drop. Unless we make a lot of noise, the employed Americans will think we got that extension!

    Please re-apply….everyone.
    WHen I did, they told me to claim my weeks on 5/3.

    Just DO IT

    Your post here moved me to tears and then anger.
    I hope you do not mind if I use this to contact my representative and the media.
    I think they need to hear this from someone like you.

    Feel free to utilize my posts. I have e-mailed my representative without even as much as a comfirmation return e-mail in response. My State Employment Commission (VA) hasn’t even posted anytype of information on Federal Extension 4851. I have been told by them to wait…they would send me a letter in the mail. Meanwhile, project hold ups stager the development & building industry. Forclosure rates continue to soar. I continue to look for work not only in my field but out.

  • AnnetteNuck1 03/25/2010 4:45am

    Additionally sir, your stimulus for infra structure is a joke. You cant touch the stimulus money until after you finance the infra structure for the project. The banks are not lending therefore your stimulus money sits not doing anyone any good. How are busines suppose to put u back to work if th banks dont finance the beginning of the project. Gee, I thought as smart as you are there would have been a stipulation to these bank bail outs to cooperate with your stimulus plan monies. Guess you are not as intelligent as you thought huh? Get real sir. Your descisions are driving people like me who use to have a nice home and decent life into poverty. You suck.

    Unemployment Line Stays Long: Up to 26.4 Million Seek Full-Time Jobs

    Unemployment is expected to remain above 9% for at least the next two years, according to Christopher Woock, research associate for The Conference Board, and other economists.


    Can any one say “DEPRESSION”

  • sassysally50 03/26/2010 2:12pm

    What about the Unemployed that has Exhausted all Tiers ..and Have no Jobs or Benefits left to pay for their basic needs …Where’s their HELP!!!!

  • HopefromCA 03/26/2010 6:32pm

    I feel that this is about delay,delay,delay. Congress does this over and over again. The feeling I get is that they feel if they make sure we have a gap between tiers it will force some of us back to work but all it does for the most part is force some of us to take part time work and then when the next tier comes along they don’t qualify for it because their income is too high.

  • TCBlackcat 03/26/2010 9:51pm

    FL -FYI (I called the UC office to check for any possible extensions for those with exhausted benefits, and was told to call back in 3 weeks for update or keep an eye on the website. It looks as though the long-term unemployed just may have a chance with this one, despite the wait; and this one will be retroactive)/April 12, 2010:

    The Senate will convene at 2:00 p.m. and will be in a period of morning business until 3:00 p.m. with the time equally divided and controlled.

    At 3:00 p.m., the Senate will resume the motion to proceed to H.R. 4851, the Continuing Extension Act of 2010 (UI/COBRA et al). The Republican Leader will control the time from 5:00-5:15 p.m. and the Majority Leader will control the time from 5:15-5:30 p.m.

    At 5:30 p.m., the Senate will proceed to vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to H.R. 4851. That will be the first vote of the day.

    Cloture vote at 5:30, which starts the 30 hour clock, which means a vote Wednesday morning or afternoon.

    Washington is on break until April 12th. Nothing will get done before then unless Obama or Pelosi call them all back from Easter break.

  • AnnetteNuck1 03/30/2010 4:23am

    Mr. President and members on the Senate,
    I hope you are enjoying your traveling and family during this holiday. I however am stressing over keeping a roof over me and my childrens head. I am a Builder and Developer. My talents certainly over ride those of my competition “men” however with the job market in my field suffering the worst hit due to others “Banks, Government” I have been unable to find work for 13 months now. I have two checks remaining for unemployment with no prospects. I have had 2 interviews “2”. I have lost my nice home, my credit is destroyed, everything I have worked for is almost gone. Where is my BAILOUT? My company has been granted one of your useless Stimulas but my company can not get financing for the Infra Structure in order to access the Stimulas funds. Will you people please get off our Holly asses and do your jobs. I vote. I count. You are suppose to hear me, hear the people your crappy decisions have affected. Pass 4851

  • AnnetteNuck1 03/30/2010 4:33am

    I live here in Virginia and have every intention of coming to the White House front door if HR 4851 doesnt pass. I will be bringing my childrn with me so that YOU, Mr. President and You Senate members can explain to them why mommy cant put a roof over their head!!!

  • navgas 03/31/2010 10:29am

    This also affects all military (active duty, retired, and their family members) by implementing a 21% cut in Medicare reimbursement to physicians. Medicare/Tricare are linked. If this is allowed to take effect it will mean cuts in care for all seniors and military. Remember, it means the military currently fighting our wars. Their family members could and will be denied access to healthcare even as their military spouses are fighting and dying for this country. This important issue is tied to Colburn’s Viagra issue among other bullshit pork!

  • aaronk1 04/03/2010 11:21am

    How can congress send $1 trillion dollars to Haiti knowing full well that this money will never be repaid, and congress is complaining about spending 1/100th that amount on people in there own country people who voted them into there current jobs.

  • NYER1 04/04/2010 11:43am

    Vote all the incumbents out in November, out with the old, slimy, crooks! We need a new Senate and Congress and POTUS!

    Today there was a discussion in Washington about the Chinese currency. Mt reply to them was:

    Who gives a crap about Chinese currency. I know the implications of all the different currencies but these guys, even during their break, are dealing with stuff that has NO bearing on the long term unemployed who lose all their beneifts April 5 because Washington feels it’s more important to take a 3 week vacation than help REAL American citizens. Shame on all of you but I bet you all had a great Easter while many of us had none or if we did it was at a local food kitchen. How your consciences can ignore what is happening to hard working, tax paying citizens who are out of work because of all of you is beyond me. I have never know of such insensitive, rich, immoral people as those who run America.

    What gives you the right to demand that government officials steal resources from other families to feed yours? What gives you the right to seize more of our meager resources and send us ever closer to that same local food kitchen? You decry the ‘insensitive’ and ‘immoral’ people of this country while trying to continue sucking the very marrow from their bones. Shame on all of you indeed.

  • angienovi 04/12/2010 2:30pm

    This is for you (nmeagent):Do you work? If you do you pay taxes to the goverment that money goes out from us so that if something like this happens we’vd paid in they should pay out………..We just want what help we are intitled too.

  • angienovi 04/12/2010 2:32pm

    By the way we won, I just watched as the Senate passed the bill H.R.4851 to extend our unemployment benefits, won 60-34.

  • angienovi 04/12/2010 2:37pm

    They shouldn’t be spending anything to Haiti when we are in poverty.

    FL -still no help for the long-term unemployed, and they’ve just passed it until May 2010, correct? Still no help for those that have exhausted all of their benefits, EB and all Tiers, correct?

    They didn’t “pass the bill”, They voted to close the debate and move it forward. They have to wait 30 hours to vote. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    You are right gramps. One bad apple spoiled it. Now we wait till Wednesday. We need 60 votes. Repukelican from Illinois who probably has kids in college and a nice house, maid, gardener thinks we are not an emergency. That we are not as worthy as Haiti and their own corrupt government officials. I am a Republican and I am ashamed of their lack of loyalty and commpassion for the very people who placed them in office. Shame on them! Good thing I live in Virginia fairly close to the WhiteHouse. If they dont move quickly I will be there with a sign “please let me live in your house that I helped pay for”.
