Very important part of this article. To those who read and were discouraged by the CBC meeting with Obama.

Nabors tossed out a number last Wednesday as the five CBC members met
with the President that reached $20 billion is somewhat of a surprise.
Regardless, if Reps. Lee, who is on House Appropriations and Scott, who
is a former member of the Budget Committee and will soon present the CBC
budget on the floor of the House, can find a way to pay for the bill,
Nabors estimate could be rendered moot.

Maybe now that Obama is against it the GOP will be for it. Send messages to the GOP if they pass this bill the unemployment rate will go up and make Obama look bad.

The following is the latest statement from the Crew of 42, the website of the Congressional Black Caucus. Reps. Lee and Scott will meet with Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor on Thursday, April 7 to discuss HR 589.

Please continue to contact everyone involved in that meeting, including the CBC, Boehner, Cantor, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. Keep the emails, faxes and tweets going through Thursday! We can't stop. With many states now cutting EB, more and more unemployed Americans will be without benefits. HR 589 must be brought to the Floor and passed without any further delay.

With a Federal Government shutdown looming, it is the right time to ask for a compromise on this legislation that will affect millions of Americans.

Please take time out of your day between now and Thursday to contact the individuals listed below. Don't assume everyone else is going to. We need EVERYONE to participate in order to get this through.
Again, Unemployed-Friends2.org cannot stress enough the importance of a strong, united effort beginning now until Thursday.

This is it, folks.... IT IS UP TO YOU!




In the middle of an ongoing budget battle and with the black unemployment rate at 16.8%, Reps. Lee and Scott will attempt to make a case for their legislation to the House GOP leadership this Thursday. Meanwhile, the House GOP Budget team, lead by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, is set to announce the de facto elimination of Medicare and Medicaid on Tuesday.

One of the major questions regarding H.R.589 is: How much it will cost.
The bill has not been officially scored and no one I’ve talked to seems to know exactly how much the bill costs. That White House Legislative Liason Rob Nabors tossed out a number last Wednesday as the five CBC members met with the President that reached $20 billion is somewhat of a surprise. Regardless, if Reps. Lee, who is on House Appropriations and Scott, who is a former member of the Budget Committee and will soon present the CBC budget on the floor of the House, can find a way to pay for the bill, Nabors estimate could be rendered moot.
The meeting between Reps. Lee and Scott with Cantor and Boehner is set to happen the day before the government could shutdown — at least for a weekend — if a deal is not reached to fund the government for longer than a few weeks. The issue of an unemployment extensions represents the first time House leadership has given an audience to an issue involving the poor and disadvantaged.

Are Lee & Scott just going to walk away and say nothing when they are told TOO COSTLY???

They Otta take some of US (99'ers) with them to the meeting and televise it.

We have to keep fighting. We don't know that they will walk away. We don't know the entire content of the meeting or how that was said. It was one article. We can't afford not to fight.

Everyone saw Paul Ryan's news conference, if we stop fighting now, we will wind up with no SS, no medicaire/medicaid and if they have their way, we'll all be left with nothing.

MaryKay, I never said I was giving up...I was just stating that I feel like our work is done in VEIN sometimes. Don't you worry, I will fight. But I don't always think they are helping to really help, sometimes it's to help themselves.

ss, I wasn't directing that at you at all. I would never think you would give up. I agree that Paul Ryan (Eddie Munster all grown up) is out for Paul Ryan and he is appeasing his base and his contributors. I also think that budget for fantasy land he delivered today, with everyone standing behind him nodding, has just fired up the Dems. That budget is going nowhere. It would never get past the Senate, it would get vetoed by the President.

So, sorry ss, didn't mean to offend you. I also corrected my typos in that post, boy my typing was bad.
