Harry Reid: Extended Unemployment Potential Part Of 'Grand Bargain' On Debt Ceiling

Post by gettheminNOVEMBER on Tue Jul 12, 2011 6:12 pm

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/12/extended-unemployment-on-_n_896252.html

Lets hope and pray they include EVERYONE!

Reid said.

Under current law, as of July, workers laid off through no fault of their own are ineligible for the extra weeks of federal jobless benefits that since 2008 have kicked in for those who exhaust 26 weeks of state-funded benefits. Congress has provided extra weeks of aid during every recession since the 1950s and has never let them expire with unemployment above 7.2 percent.

The rate currently stands at 9.2 percent and isn't expected to come down anytime soon. And letting the benefits expire could very well damage the economy.

Thank you Harry Reid, could we please include the 99ers this time around. It's been over a year for most of us. How's that for a tweet.

Unfortunately this article is par for the course. It just says that it will allow people that were cut off at 72 weeks to collect the full 99 weeks & doesn't say anything about help past 99weeks or anything about HR589

When ONE MILLION people apply for 60,000 jobs at Mac Ds we have a problem. Actual number of unemployed is 25 MILLION, that is a huge % of the work force. How the hell are rich folks going to sell thier goods. Unemployme­nt benefits give back 1.61 for every dollar spent.Righ­t now these programs account for 20 % of all spending when you add SS checks and foodstamps in there. We have a DEMAND problem. Not that hard to understand really. END THE MONEY wasting bush tax cuts. Bush borrowed almost 3 trillion from china and gave it to th rich. Result 8 million jobs lost and money wasted. Time for the MADNESS to end.

Here is one of my comments. I have a bunch of responses to others that were bashing the jobless.

Ha, Ha, Ha...back to the SAME old BS of the LAST two years. Extending and FUNDING the EUC08 takes precedence OVER 99ers. I'm just flabbergasted......Oh wait , I'm not....It's SAME old tricks TO AVOID addressing those THAT have fallen off. We are the FORGOTTEN ones for sure now. I AM sooooo PISSED at this madness.

All around Capitol Hill
The Democrat chased the Republican;
The Democrat thought 'twas all in fun,
Pop! goes the Republican.

A Trillion for the DOD,
Nothing for the pepole—
That's where the money goes,
Pop! goes the Republican.

Jimmy's got the whooping cough
And Sally's got the measles
As it goes you'll die for sure
Pop! goes the Republican.

Just to be clear, they mentioned this during a meeting, it may or may not be included. We need to be heard and we need to make sure they include the 99ers and we need to make sure it DOES become a part of this deal. And Eric Cantor can walk all the way home for all I care. I think there is much nervousness in these talks and the pressure is on! They have seen the polling numbers and are hearing the outrage. They already put Paul Ryan on ice due to the blow back from his budget proposal that they passed.

I have been calling too & emailing because I got a email from somebody that a lot of Congress blocks multiple tweets people if they seem to be pushy with an adgenda....meaning if we say anything that challenges then, they just block us. So I wonder how many of my tweets are actually received. I am never rude or anything But I do demand action for 99ers. I hope I have not been blocked. I don't think there is any way to know?

Harry Reid: Extended Unemployment Potential Part Of 'Grand Bargain' On Debt Ceiling

Post by Guest on Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:39 pm

A deal to raise the statutory U.S. borrowing limit and cut the federal budget may preserve federal unemployment benefits set to expire at the beginning of next year, lawmakers said Tuesday.

President Obama has said he'd agree to billions in spending cuts in exchange for higher taxers as part of a "grand bargain" to address the nation's long-term fiscal imbalance while preventing a potentially disastrous default at the beginning of August.

HuffPost asked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) if congressional negotiators and the White House were considering reauthorizing the extended benefits as part of the deal.

"On the grand bargain, of course," Reid said.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/12/extended-unemployment-on-_n_896252.html

.......And it better have the provisions of HR 589, adding 14 weeks to Tier 1, to help the 99er's this time!

Here we go again with Hatch and drug testing and people getting hurt to collect.

Then we have ""I don't have any problem if we decided we're going to do something like that," said Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.). "Fine. Cut something else in government rather than borrow the money to do it." Tom Coburn the one who wanted to stop using paper to print on to lower debt, what the hell do you print on.

Then we have the Saint and this guy is a Saint, Bernie Sanders, who in all honesty said "that unemployment benefits were not discussed during a Democratic caucus lunch on Tuesday." I will never forget this Senator Sanders and his 8 hour filibuster last year. I wish we could put him in The While House with Clinton.

In am in a state where I lost almost 3 months of total EUC and High Unemployment (6 weeks and 7 weeks) because the Governor decided to open the mines and logging industries and pay people $10/hour to get the unemployment rate down.

I live no where near these areas and am a woman so I don't think I can work that job. But in the tri-state area of NJ, PA, DE (which includes Philadelphia, Wilmington and North Jersey) the unemployment rate is high. What do we do in areas in a state where a big city still has high unemployment, idk. What do you do when you are a single mom and have no income, idk. But I will find out soon.

I feel everyone who has exhausted their benefits no matter at what point, should get the remainder of what they lost along with additional extensions be it 589 or whatever Debbie Stabenow had in mind before she abandoned us and she did. I truly thought she was a super star last summer, now screw her.

I am still Dazed&Confused. I wish we could get Bernie Sanders who is only 67, (have we not had older presidents that him) born in 1944, this guy is a gem to run on the Independent ticket with Clinton. Get the freakin' Republicans out of here.

I knew when Obama was elected it was just a one term thing for him so he could be blamed for the mess Bush (who is in hiding, maybe he should be hunted down like Bin Liden) created for us. Sure blame Obama, not that I am really liking him right now but this is Bush's fault, how could we recover from the mess Bush made in Obama's two years. Bush's last month in office we lost 825, 000 jobs, yes blame that on Obama.

We have 30,000,000 people out of work who want to work. Unemployment extensions were never cut if over 7.2% - we got 9.2% and it is gonna go up. Perhaps we are in a double dip recession, perhaps a L shaped recession, but I really think we are in a depression and one that has never had 30,000,000 people out of work, ever. So I would say we are in a depression and I want to mention this those measly 18,000 net jobs have a plus./minus % of something like 20%. Now this get me mad, as the month of May with the what 56,000 jobs, actually went down to 36,000. Wonder what those differential in numbers did for the people who lost their unemployment through sloppy accounting.

This government sucks big time and I am ashamed. Usually we get the spoils of war, thats why we go to war, or are happy to sell arms to Iran and Iraq when in the 80's we needed money, we sold arms or started wars. That is where we made our money when the economy of the US was not looking good. It all about war, but now the government of the United States of America has declared ware on its own people.

Time to fight back, NOW.

Crew of 42:

http://www.crewof42.com/cbc/lee-obama-said-hed-push-for-unemployment-benefits-in-debt-deal/

House Majotity Leader Harry Reid indicated to Huffington Post the unemployment benefits would be part of the $4T so-called “grand bargain.” President Obama has indicated in the past the unemployment benefits are part of what may be part of any negotiation. At yesterday’s press conference the President indicated that unemployment benefits would be a good short term way to stimulate the ecomomy. Whether benefits would apply to those needing short term or long term unemployment is unclear.

We need to take action ASAP!

Congress has provided extra weeks of aid during every recession since the 1950s and has never let them expire with unemployment above 7.2 percent.

This was my understanding as well, so what does this suggest about the "deal" that Ohbomba made with the cons last December? Essentially it was a faux concession that translated to nothing from the part of the cons for two more years of tax cuts and further cuts to a program which both parties would like to see privatized as per their debt commissioners? This kind of negotiating doesn't leave me very hopeful. The stimulus package served the same crew and the results could have easily been predicted, because the funds almost matched what shrub gave away the prior year.

BTW, has anyone been receiving spam with their screen-name in the caption?
