    Seem to me everything else is more important in our country at this time and they don’t really care how we’re going to feed our kids or keep a roof over their heads! I had the same thoughts,maybe we should move and forget about the US like they have done us.Even with degrees and not being able to get a job they think we’re all a bunch of lazy people who don’t want to work.Things were suppose to get better and my family is in ALOT worse shape than last year at this time.Our country is failing us and it’s going to turn into a bad,really bad place when all of us that can’t find jobs and provide for our families end up on the streets.They want to send money to help everybody else,does anybody think they’re gonna care about the US and the people here that are starving or homeless? WAKE UP PEOPLE,WE NEED HELP!!! We spend more a year on housing a prisoner than they want us to live on having a family of 4 or 5.Theres a big problem with that picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Over 50…worked the past 30 years…paid my taxes…worked hard…lost job through no fault of my own (boss retired, closed office)…rejection notice after the other-most say too many applicants…chose more qualified candidate (I have applied for jobs I AM qualified for…over qualified for…and even UNDER qualified for-in hopes SOMETHING would happen)…continue to get up every morning and prepare the search again…but in 3 weeks my benefits will cease without this extension!!! And just to give us another slap in the face…Senator Orrin Hatch wants all of us to be DRUG TESTED!!!! It’s not enough they have insinuted we are LAZY…but apparently Senator Hatch thinks we are LAZY DRUGGIES, too!!! Now, I am no rocket scientist…but how much money would Drug Testing cost….and where would those funds come from? Come on, Senators…walk a mile in our shoes…and lets see how fast you would PASS this bill!!! So disgusted by our politians…more than ever before in my life!

    I pray to God everyday, many different times of the day that all senators approve the bill to extend the unemployment. Since, I got laid off I have been depressed not knowing why this had to happend to me? America has been a country to be known to lead other country’s. I don’t want to be part of another failed country. Please, God help us to lead again do not let us fail, we are good American’s with the intentions to help one another. We are not dictators like in Cuba. God you have more power than any one please help.

    I believe we should stop sending troops and money all over the world. Let’s fix our country first. No jobs have been created in the past two years. Even more jobs are being lost everyday as we speak and on top of that the unemployment benefits are ending for thousands of us everyday day. Companies are still sending jobs overseas while these companies sell their products here and this government is not doing anything about it. There is something very wrong with this picture. We got drugs and illegal immigration coming over from Mexico. We got enough troops to stop that now but the government insists rather in sending troops to other countries like Iraq and Afghanistan spending billions of dollars and again while our country suffers and going through the worst recession in history. I get up everyday searching for jobs can’t find anything. I been without a job since Oct 2008 because my company gave my job to a guy in India…This was once the land of opportunity.

    I agree with all the others. I haven’t had a job since October 2008 also. Lost so much since then I even lost a finger. I can’t live without a finger but I can’t live without money. In the position that I am in I wonder why in the world anyone would want to come here to live. But then again if you are an illegal you can get everything you need and still have money left over to send to your country. This is rediculous. I hope all the senators had a nice 4th of July cuz without my unemployment and no job I had to watch other peoples fireworks cuz I would rather have a roof over my head and food in my stomach. I wonder what they would do if they were in our positions. Having to depend on the kindness of others to pay their bills. Just to have the necessities. Like food, electricity, gas, water and a roof over our heads.

    We should stop sending troops to other countries like Iraq and Afghanistan which is costing us billions of dollars while our country suffers. Let slook after our own people and policies which help our own country men and women.
