In Rep. Cleaver’s words: “It was what I expected because my staff had done a lot of research on it. And we found that the cost of that program would be between $14 and 20 billion dollars which is cost prohibitive. So there was no point in the President saying, ‘yeah I support it…’ when I laid it out I said to him, ‘Mr. President, I’m going to raise this, and this is one of our issues because this is one of our issues — it’s an issue among our members…’ I ended it by saying, however, I understand that the cost is enormous. He (President Obama) said (to Rob Nabors sitting on the sofa) ‘Rob how much is it?’ And Rob said, ‘between 14 and 20 billion’ and I said, let’s move on. Because there was no point — that’s not going to happen,” recounted Cleaver.

99ers - Keep fighting! Reps. Lee and Scott still say they will find a way to pay for it. Also, the meeting with Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor is scheduled for the end of this week!

Please don't lose hope. We must get this passed. It is time to organize and rally!

Update on CBC - Obama Meeting: Cleaver Says Cost of 99ers Bill “Prohibitive” Empty Re: Update on CBC - Obama Meeting: Cleaver Says Cost of 99ers Bill “Prohibitive”

Lee, a member of the Appropriations Committee, has said in the recent
past that there is a way to pay for the bill. The other factor is that
the legislation has not been scored by GAO. The total price of the
legislation has always been a point of discussion. Reps. Lee and Bobby
Scott have a meeting with Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor on H.R. 589
later this week. I already called around for reaction and response
regarding this exchange has been slow or non existent — not unlike most
things on Capitol Hill.

Interestingly, unemployment extensions
and the plight of the 99ers was one of five subjects brought up by the
five members of the CBC meeting with the President on Wednesday. The
members present were Reps. Emanuel Cleaver, G.K. Butterfield, Yvette
Clarke, Andre Carson and Del. Donna Christensen of the Virgin Islands.

Sorry all, but Pollyanna I am. We have heard things in the past that were only partially correct or out of context. At the bottom of the article, it does state the bill has not been scored as of yet. Rep. Lee and Scott have a meeting this week. See above. Hope is not lost. We've all said it before, when they tell us "there is no legislation for the 99ers" then it's over. It has not been said.

No its not over. The article was poorly written and very vague IMHO. Lee and Scott still meet with Boehner and Cantor this week.

You are not going to get "kicked off". I think what you are feeling now was everybody's initial reaction,including mine, when I first read this. Cleaver can take a hike and the only thing I have to say to him is "YES it will happen"! If you give up now, that is one less person we have in our corner and we need all we can get!

Pelosi tweets that Boehner has created NO JOBS but she won't help the 99ers. WOW CLUELESS!

She only tweeted the Boehner thing not the 99er thing. Just so you know. Last year she was no help at all.

Yeah, the article makes it sound like Cleaver said to move on. If this was his attitude why did he ask for the meeting to start with? He knew how much the bill would cost. I am not banking on it but I think is a chance this could pass. It seems the EB program is ending in North Carolina for some reason and I still have some hope of this going through. It does have to be paid for however.

You would think the GOP would want to pass the bill so the real unemployment rate is know to make Obama look bad.

Statement from Barbara Lee’s Office Regarding a planned meeting between her, Rep. Bobby Scott and Speaker Boehner on H.R. 589:

“Rep. Lee is encouraged that the Speaker and Leader Cantor have agreed to meet within the next few weeks to discuss how to provide emergency benefits for millions of long-term unemployed workers. Despite her strong belief that this should be considered emergency spending, the Congresswoman is committed to exhausting every possible option for passing this bill.”

We aren't throwing anyone out! Believe me, we know how you feel. Same story here. There was an update that came out after this release late this afternoon. The meeting with Boehner and Cantor is on Thursday. Lee has promised that she will do everything she can to get this passed.

Please don't give up. Your voice matters. We need everyone in this fight. We can't let them win this one.

Please try to remember that with every prior extension things were said by press and politicians that made us cringe. It is bound to happen again. Honestly, I don't expect any thing less.

If they are trying to hide the numbers they will be in for a big surprise because EVERYTHING always comes out in the end...one way or another the true rate will come out and all will be revealed.

I understand everyones frustration and the need to vent. I feel like throwing a huge fit and throwing my computer out the window!

BUT I wont, I will keep contacting congress and Obama and keep tweeting until my fingers bleed and we get some help.

We are strong in numbers and we WILL be heard. I just hope its soon for all of our sakes.

Hopefully, they will keep the appt for the meeting. I remember reading there was a good chance they would since they are all in the same building in DC
