The White House did not respond to a request for comment. The administration has estimated that four million Americans will run out of unemployment benefits this year.

Those exhaustees' prospects for additional help are grim. Lee and Scott are meeting with House Republican leaders Thursday to discuss offsetting the cost of jobless benefits with cuts elsewhere in the budget, but the pair may not receive help from their own party. Democratic leaders have adamantly refused to "pay for" re-authorizations of extended unemployment benefits for the past year; none have suggested they would support spending cuts in other areas in order to add 14 weeks to jobless payments.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/05/cost-of-bill-to-help-99er_n_844610.html

Although there is some "not so positive" news coming out of the CBC's meeting with President Obama last week, the fact that Obama, nor his administrative staff, have made no comment regarding this still lends hope for the 99ers. The President's administration team could have released a statement that this is out of the question, but have not.

This is another reason to keep up the Call to Action campaign for HR 589, with more emphasis on contacting the President. Yesterday, he announced his intention to seek a second term in office. When you contact him, remind him of how many people will be affected by this bill and that the unemployed and 99er's VOTE, and so do their families.

An all out effort by everyone is needed now. We cannot afford to lose this battle!

Yes, as of now, even with the government shutdown looming two days after, the meeting is still set for Thursday.

I am no longer convinced that even the CBC wants to help the 99'ers. I feel like it's a re-election ploy. This bill is smelling just like Senator Stabenow.

Sometime things are just too expensive....but I look at it like my grandmother used to when she purchased something that was too costly. She would say "Yes, that is too costly, however, I look at it like it is an investment." The payoff will outway the cost.

Payoff= lives put back on track, food on tables, $ put into the economy in my eyes is an investment.

In this country we don't think of people as investments anymore. What do corporations always say about their payroll? They call it an expense. Your human labor is not an expense it's an asset, a necessary asset. They can't run business without it. When a big company swallows a smaller one they don't say "it's a big expense" they say "it's an investment". But when an applicant looks for a living wage the hiring manager is always "I don't know, it's such an expense". It's wrong and this attitude has to change if our country is to be saved.

An investment is only an investment if it pays for itself and provides a return; I think neither side views the long term UE as viable and they will be a causality of the Dems trying to look good for 2012 (they need the UE so they can't give the UE too much until we put them in office as a reward) and the Repubs who view us as no longer an investment (were all fired up for the Dems thanks to our short sight) but a liability there is no upside politically for them.
By aligning ourselves with one side we have sealed our fate with theirs...

He didn't even try. He didn't even give Oboma a chance to say no.

During his meeting the cost came up and said "let's move on".

But that is how the meeting went. HE DID NOT EVEN TRY. He was like a high school kid who wanted to go on a trip "Hey mom I wanna go but it's too expensive". He was hoping Obpma would say "Don't jump to conclusions, let's look at the cost. But he didn't.

This to me was the worst news regarding addition weeks yet. It blew past the Prez. and nothing.

And as far as "keep it to yourself" Freedom of speech my friend.

And no the fat lady HASN'T sung but she sure is humming......amazing grace how sweet the sound...[i]

It ain't up to Beaver Cleaver. Last I heard Obum never opened his trap at the meeting. He let his spokesman do the talking. The fact that Prez didn't chime in and say no is good enough for me.
You got freedom of speech alright but you aint got freedom to drag us down with you. You want to sink, go for it dude.. Keep huming amazin grace while you are sinking. I'll stay afloat and sing opara at the top of my lungs.. If that dont get Obum to agree nothing will..

When the benefits run out for 4 million Americans, that will drop the unemployment rate probably a whole percentage point, as they will no longer have to count these people as unemployed. President Obummer will claim this as a positive sign, and Wall Street will react to the 'positive' news with 'stocks soaring'. Ah yes, the spin cycle continues.

I've been on this forum for over a year and a half, and have seen many opinions. Many for these opinions were of a negative "it's over" nature. But I never said keep it to yourself. Just like your avitar. Why do I have to look at a skinny shirtless bleach white man with a ridiculous mullet, but you put it up there because you like it and that is your opinion and that's ok. If the pants come off then that is when "keep it to yourself" will be said.

I want you to sing loud and proud, I want you to be hopeful. I will encourage hope. I am hopeful for thurs, but what I read about that meeting was just damaging to our plight.

I have to say, anytime a bill for unemployment benefits has come up we have witnessed all kinds of bad remarks, insults, lies, and negativity. Why should it be any different this time?

Please don't lose faith. I was upset when I heard this too, but try to remember that this was one mans comment. Until I hear from Rep Lee or Rep Scott that this is over, I am not going to take anything anyone else says to heart.

Tomorrow is another day, lets wait and see what the results are from the meeting with GOP leaders before we get any more upset and discouraged than we already are. Who knows, they could all surprise us. affraid
