UPDATE 3/24/2011:

H.R. 589 now has 78 co-sponsors!

*Note - Updated list of Co-Sponsors is not yet available.



NATIONAL NEWS MAGAZINE HAS CONTACTED THE AMERICAN 99ERS UNION. THEY WOULD LIKE TO INTERVIEW A 99ER FAMILY IN EITHER NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, OR PENNSYLVANIA. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PLEASE CONTACT US AT 202-579-9377

"Representatives Lee and Scott, In Letter, Request Meeting with Boehner, Cantor, Camp to Discuss Bill to Give Emergency Benefits to Long-Term Unemployed Workers"


from http://lee.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=57§iontree=35,57&itemid=2307


Suggested letter to be sent to Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor:



Dear ,

As a Member of the American 99ers Union, I must request your immediate support of H.R. 589, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Expansion Act. This important piece of legislation must be signed into law without delay in order to save American lives and stimulate the economy back to health.

The American 99ers Union supports legislation that sustains once hard working Americans, stimulates the economy, and assists in getting Americans back to work. H.R. 589 accomplishes all of these goals.

Look at where the American economy is without extending unemployment insurance and investing in its Citizens:

1) 1 million homes were lost to foreclosure in 2010.

2)The National Unemployment Rate has remained at 9% or above for 21 consecutive months.

3)Defaults on student loans are growing by more than $2,800 dollars per second.

4)147 banks shut their doors in 2010, as a result of a weak economy and soured loans.

5)According to projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Income tax payments this year will be nearly 13 percent lower than they were in 2008. As a share of the nation's economy, taxes collected this year will be the lowest since 1950.

With jobs in the business sector and at the Federal and State level declining and/or anemically moving forward, it is clear that we need to invest in America and Americans in order to help our economy back to health. By extending unemployment insurance to the longest-term unemployed, the unemployed can help bring the economy back to health, as consumer spending accounts for 70% of all economic activity.

Therefore I must once again respectfully request that you support, and vote yes on H.R. 589, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Expansion Act.

Sincerely,
My Name
Address

Member 99er Union
