Here is a link to the questions asked so far, your questions were tweeted using the message shortener via @Exhausted99er ---- 5 times!

http://twitter.com/#!/search/OfficialCBC

**Note that almost 100% of the questions were regarding HR 589 and the 99ers!

Here is a response.

My question would be "Is there strong enough incentive for US businesses to hire back former employees laid off in downsizing exercizes; especially those over 50?"
My former company will use us as contract temporary employees, but after 50 we are SOL when it comes to rehire; the way it is structured now we don't have a legal leg to stand on.

Also B: the true possibilities the two bills (can't remember the numbers) will get passed?
And C: how many dems support those bills In their estimation
If by some reason of insanity would the President sign off on them????

I truly hope these questions will be ask ! Thanks,


OK desp.. ask these questions for me. Please!!! The first one is important very!!! But I am sure they will say until they see what happens to the two bills they can't say much at all about the possibilities of 589 at this point..

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ac/20101214/pl_ac/7404974_unemployment_extension_amendment_proposed_by_sen_john_thune

There IS a way to make this happen; the only question is whether the White House has the will to do it. They're in 2012 re-election mode; i'm not so sure how committed they are to helping people like us.


Thune's amendment would have paid for benefits out of discretionary funds. Those funds are not there now. I am all for paying to 589 and feel like that is the only way that it will pass the republicans, but no one ever has any idea where to get the money. Everyone says to find it "somewhere". Where? The government isn't a business or a household. It doesn't hold money to use later. It budgets out all the money it has. This is why government grants are always totally spent by the people who get them, if they don't spend it all they get less next year. If you take the money from government programs it will put even more people out of work. This is the problem that we are running into on the state level. To fix budget deficits they are laying off teachers? Why? Because there isn't "somewhere" to find the money.

This is why this problem is hard to solve.



Sorry, But even if it is paid for. The repubs will resist on any means of paying for because then it will be about discretionary spending!

Oh you are absolutely right. But if it isn't paid for it has no chance at all. It will be a heavy lift no matter what.

All the questions, along with the conversation here, have been tweeted and retweeted to @OfficialCBC.

Hoping we will hear something good for us for a change as a result of the CBC's meeting today with President Obama.
