President Obama will meet the full CBC membership next week at the White House. Based on their last meeting in March, they will continue to focus on these five topics:

  • 1. Budget strategies to end systemic “pockets” of poverty (also known as “10-20-30″)
    2. Redistricting and Section 5 of the Voting right Act
    3. The 99ers and unemployment extensions (H.R. 589)
    4. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
    5. NIH funding, health care disparities

From the American 99er's Union home page:

Rep. Barbara Lee continues to speak out with respect to H.R.589 and the long-term unemployed (see YouTube link below). We commend Rep. Lee as she continues working on behalf of the 99er community. She is but one voice and Washington needs to continue hearing the collective voices of the 99er community. Please TAKE ACTION today.

A True Story

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage,
hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of
stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs
and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with
cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same
result ... all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty
soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys
will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.

The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To
his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After
another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the
stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a
new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The
previous newcomer takes part in the punishment... with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a
fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the
stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him up
have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither
do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest
monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the
remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.
Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for
the banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds...that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress operates... and is why, from time to
time, all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Man, you nailed it on the head. This exactly the reason so many outrageous things happen in the government. Most people cant think for themselves. The really smart ones fool the dumb ones. Whoever gets to hold that hose becomes king basically.

Does anyone remember what Edison did to tesla? To prove that DC power was superior and AC was "dangerous", edison electrocuted elephants with AC power in the streets to scare people. Even though he knew obviously his method was inferior he did his best to scare people. These kind of low handed egoistic tactics still happen today in different forms.

People need to wisen up and throw these people out. They are there to do a job. They are not royalty. They have no right to discriminate against anybody. Just because we fell on hard times due to NO FAULT OF OUR OWN doesnt meant we can be brushed aside and forgotten.

She is. Chairman Camp will not let it out of Committee. He and Senator Hatch introduced bicameral legislation yesterday that could end EUC payments to individuals as soon as it is passed. It would allow the states to divert the funds to training programs, TAX CUTS for businesses to hire and pay down their debt to the Federal government.

I hope all the unemployed realized the ramifications of this bill. It would override S4213 and people would lose their benefits regardless of what tier they are on and the 12/31/11 extension deadline.

HR 589 has a better chance of passing now, but WE WON'T SEE IT! States will use this money for the GOP's proposed "JOBS Act" and give that money to business in the form of tax credits. It is their way of saying "We helped the 99er's". In reality, we will ALL lose.

Please pass this information along. I don't think many realize the ramifications of this. The GOP very sneakily introduced this legislation yesterday in both chambers of Congress.

OMG! So in other words they attached an amendment to 589 with the bicameral legislation.... Right, use us off our backs again to create jobs that are not being created!!!!
The only good news is even though they added this amendment if it comes to the floor for a vote their could be some hold outs in the senate at least and amend it out of this bill... .. But I give up, Absolutely give up!!

No! They didn't attach anything to HR 589!

Two separate pieces of legislation were proposed yesterday, Camp sponsored HR 1745 in the House and Hatch entered S 904 in the Senate!

PLEASE see this thread and pass the word!

I wish I could be more optimistic, but the President's hands are tied. The GOP has the majority in the House and the Senate does not have a filibuster proof majority. Then of course, there is the bicameral legislation introduced last week which is moving at the speed of light through the legislative process.

The only thing the President can do is veto those two bills if they make it that far.

There is the option of an Executive Order, however, every one that has been issued by any former President has been overridden in the courts.

We need a miracle. Sad

Please get involved in any action to STOP HR 1745 and S 904! HR 1745 is expected to go to the House floor TODAY after the W & M Commitee hearing at 10:30.

HR 1745 WILL pass the House and go to the Senate. Although it is almost certain to be defeated there, it will lead to MAJOR delays on moving HR 589 forward!

Get out your Twitter tools, 1208! Every voice counts!
