What Happened

We need The President and Congress to pass HR589 that would extend unemployment benefits an additional 14 weeks retroactively. Millions have been without money for a year now. Americans are losing homes and starving due to no fault of their own. The main reason these once hardworking individuals suffered job loss was because of outsourcing and the recession.Our government bails out banks and big business but not the people. If you treated a pet the way our government is treating these people(the unemployed) you would be locked up for animal cruelty.

I Spoke With

Many faxes, letters, and calls to Capitol Hill and media.

What It Would Take to Resolve This

The House needs to bring HR589 to the floor and passed, and then the Senate must do the same!

    Yes, we are starving -- losing our homes, cars, savings, and our dignity. Thanksgiving 2010 is no feast for the unemployed.

    This needs IMMEDIATE attention! The Americans Want Work Act should have been the first order of business in this session! Hope the Dems are not so pissed off at the ingrates that lost them the majority that they no longer care about the American people because if so this is a losing strategy for them.

    The new number for bill is HR589 and its stuck in Ways & Means Cmte . We need The House to bring it to the floor. The 99ers have grown in numbers but the problem the same. No help from our government.

    Those who have exhausted unemployment insurance benefits, 99ers, and millions who did not qualify for (or who have lost) UI for unjust reasons, need critical help that cannot wait until businesses decide to hire. HR589 is one way to help millions and is massively needed.

    Tens of Millions of unemployed, 99ers/unempoyment insurance exhaustees, need governmental support. Waiting until businesses begin to hire is waiting too long. Passage of HR589 is critical to the survival of millions of Americans.

    It's time for us to take back our lives from the abuse we have trustingly allowed. I'm fighting back by writing a book exposing all the evil that I suffered at the hands of INDUSTRY! I grew up thinking the world was about people, not about big business...silly, foolish me.

    all of the states are tightening their belts When workers have less $$ to spend then businesses will suffer because the workers will buy fewer things. But pay freezes are preferable to layoffs

    There is only 1 job for every 5 unemployed persons, and 42% of all unemployed have been unemployed for over 6 months, with 21.9% unemployed for over 1 year.****

    IHS Global Insight predicts the total number of jobs in the U.S. won't return to pre-recession levels until 2013. And that doesn't account for the growth in the labor force.

    Both President Obama and Congress has shown total disdain for the plight of the #99ers by not providing any solutions. How is someone supposed to look for work when they have no income because their benefits have been exhausted. There are currently 7 people for 1 job opening. So, #99ers are faced with no benefits and no jobs. There needs to be an emergency spending bill passed to help those from falling further into destitute. It is the moral and humane thing to do.
