Unbelievable in Tennessee and North Carolina. Not a word out of Pennsylvania.

"State lawmakers in Tennessee and North Carolina want a legislative do-over after their states became ineligible for 20 weeks of federally-funded unemployment insurance last month.

Democrats in the Tennessee, where the unemployment rate is 9.5 percent, are trying to revive the Extended Benefits program. They didn't learn of the program's untimely death until constituents reported that their checks had stopped after April 16. The U.S. Congress had previously reauthorized the EB program through the end of the year for states with persistent high unemployment.

"We were pretty surprised to learn it had happened and there weren’t other efforts to get it remedied," said Sen. Lowe Finney (D), who introduced legislation last Thursday to restore the federal EB program. "I’ve been hearing from constituents for a few weeks."

I read this article yesterday. I believe that the TN legislature didn't know. The NC legislature didn't know until the day it was announced to the public. The employment commission really let everyone down. They were basically like "oh yeah this will end in two weeks if you don't fix it".

They knew and just let it go. I am not surprised that the legislature didn't know. Hell, I am ON the program and I didn't even know. There is no way that I could have known. I still don't really understand what the 2 year look back means or why a 3 year look back would fix it. I just know it would.

One of the things that is taking so long is the legislators have to understand the problem before they will vote on it. Most of them are just voting party line. I can tell by talking to them that they don't understand the process. Unfortunately for me and thousands of others, we don't have time to wait on them to figure it out. I have about two weeks before I have to decide about moving out. Again.
I don't have anyone to save me this time. They have to get this figured out now.

It is truly disgusting when THOSE in the position to enable others to be helped DON'T BOTHER to see ahead, around the curve? Wishing they, elected officials, could live in the shoes of those whose lives have been affected!! No
