Vote: Help Our Fellow 99ers in Missouri

Post by Sunrise on Fri Mar 18, 2011 10:54 pm

Please vote and support Missourians so that they can get the full 99 weeks promised them.

This is what a Missouri Senator has to say:

According to a spokesman for Lembke, the senator sees the federal funds as "opium ... other people's money. He wants to send back the opium that the federal government sends to the

How Dare Senator Lembke compare our need to eat, have a roof over our heads and pay what bills we can with unemployment to a opium.

Get Mad Folks! They mistreat one of us - the mistreat all of us.

Leave a comment if you want but Please Vote here (it is easy - no registration):

This from the Huffington Post:
WASHINGTON -- Republican lawmakers in Missouri are balking at accepting federal dollars to pay for 20 weeks of unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, even though the spending would not affect state budgets, and legislators in Michigan may follow suit.

Five Republicans in the Missouri Senate have launched a filibuster to prevent their legislature from implementing a technical change to its laws that would allow the state to accept the funds, which total roughly $96 million.

I live in Missouri and though I will not be helped by this legislation since I received the full 99 weeks before the law expired, I am outraged by this. I worked for the state for 24 yrs before being tossed out like yesterday's trash and I am familiar with the kind of people over there at the Capitol. Senator Lembke is only one of many flaming ***holes over there.

A good mass protest at the Capitol would do a world of good for my psyche and I can be downtown on 10 minutes notice.
