Some Republicans in Arizona have said they don't want to coddle the unemployed with federal deficit spending even if it doesn't affect the state's budget. Brewer said Republicans should put the federal budget deficit ahead of their jobless constituents.

"I understand that some legislators have concerns about the extension of unemployment aid," she said. "They worry about the federal deficit. So do I. But you don‟t balance the federal budget by turning your back on Arizonans in their time of need. That‟s not principled fiscal conservatism. It's just cruel. And we are better than this."

It is extremely cruel!! Evil or Very Mad

I applaud her on this, but don't honestly trust her completely. She is looking out for herself as well. Until now, reallly to be fair, until Cong. Giffords shooting, she was not a fan of unemployment, a huge Republican support straight across the board and a semi-tea partier. She does seem to have mellowed, but I think with the housing and unemployment situation in AZ being awful, she has come around, but again I think it's about how she will fare in all of this.

I urge everyone in PA and AZ to get on the emails and calls. This is just the way the Republicans will win this, us staying silent. As of Friday in PA it seemed a sure thing. Today they didn't vote on it. Don't go silent, it won't help the 99ers, but we need to make sure we help those about to trigger off due to "funny accounting" get the help they need too.

EMAIL AND CALL.

Jan really began to be a shining star when she asked the President to send us troops to help protect the borders. We were having constant violence and lost a well known wonderful rancher who had actually been very much a humanitarian towards the people who were left in the desert by human trafficing. He was shot in cold blood one morning, it was just aweful for all the folks in southern az. But, Gabby's shooting has mellowed her as well, so you are right on that notel.

I have e-mailed Gabby's office, and signed all the petitions regarding EB in AZ. I also am not eligible to receive it, but know of folks who need it deparately. Thx again Mary Kay for your efforts.

Spent most of the morning emailing those in Harrisburg, PA. Hope they bring this to a vote soon and get some help to those who still have EB remaining on their UC claims. All replies indicate they "are working on it" but they need to move on it now.

I hope you are right dazed for all our PA friends. I do not trust your Governor. He would have been mine, but as a 99er, I had to move in with a friend and now live in NJ. I worked 38 years in PA and that is where I was collecting my UI. As of Friday, it was ready for signature, now today, no vote. I urge all Pa Members to keep up the calls and emails.

My friend just got 4 new forms today and he is just receiving EB. So I take that as a good sign for people on EB in PA. No more tier 4 or Hub knocks the number of weeks down quite a bit in a tough economy. PA is so big that certain areas of PA are way better off than others.

Very true, some counties are really hurting while other are relatively unscathed. They are continuing to send out the forms, but until the Governor signs it's not a guarantee of funds. I am hoping and still emailing and calling and will continue to do so. If and when he signs, they will begin to deposit the monies due. If they don't, there will be no payments made. They are instructing everyone to continue to send in their forms for processing until the vote is taken and the bill is signed.
But, unfortunately, the forms are not a guarantee that you will be paid unless it is passed and signed.

HARRISBURG — Legislation to extend unemployment benefits to 45,000 Pennsylvanians who lost their extended federal benefits Friday is on hold in the state House, as lawmakers try to balance the cost of the bill with the state's $3.5 billion debt in unemployment compensation from the federal government.

Though the federal deadline to extend unemployment benefits passed on June 11, the measure waiting in the state House would be retroactive to maintain benefits for the 45,000 unemployed Pennsylvanians. The legislation also aims to restrict eligibility for unemployment benefits based on several factors to save some benefit costs, but it does not address the state's debt.

Several Republican lawmakers Monday said they were torn between the two sides of the issue.

"We have to get something done to extend the benefits. Everyone agrees on that," said state Rep. Kate Harper, R-Montgomery. "But we also have to do something to pay back the $3.5 billion debt to the federal government."

Harper was one of 30 Republicans — mostly from the southeast part of the state — to cross the aisle and vote to kill an earlier proposal, which would have addressed the unemployment debt with tougher restrictions on eligibility. That group is key to reaching an agreement on the issue.

Only California and Michigan have borrowed more from the federal government than Pennsylvania to cover unemployment compensation benefits during the recent recession.

But unemployment in Pennsylvania is down from a 15-year high of 8.8 percent in April 2010 to 7.5 in April 2011, according to the federal Department of Labor. As a result, the federal government told the state that the 13 weeks of federal extended benefits would expire this month.

While the state House bill would extend benefits to those losing their federal benefits, it also would require recipients to be actively seeking a new job. Another provision would prevent those who received more than $11,000 in severance pay from collecting state unemployment benefits.

Currently, there are no limits on collecting severance pay and no mandatory work-search requirement.

However, claimants are limited to 18 weeks of unemployment benefits, unless they had worked more than 18 consecutive weeks, in which case they are eligible for 26 weeks of benefits from the state.

The bill would increase the minimum amount of benefits per week from $35 to $70. To qualify for unemployment, the beneficiary would have to earn more than $116 per week, up from the current $50.

It also further amazes me that when Tennessee realized they needed to pass the fix, it got done in 1 (ONE) day. I suppose the average $317 check in PA is just to much to hope for. Although MA has the highest benefits available, I think PA is next, but not for long. Rise up NOW.

This is so upsetting how these politicans are playing with our lives like this. I cannot believe here in PA that they have not passed this fix yet. They had pretty much agreed to this in early May, then thay just forgot about it till the week EB was expiring. I still think that they will pass the EB fix, but who knows how much time they will take in doing it. It's so scary how so many of them have no compassion for their fellow man and woman.

I tell you I really want to see HR589 passed, not just because I may need it, but so many others that have been without any income for so long. I gotta say though that if all these state polticans are fighting to destory even the benefits that we were already agreed to receive I am beginning to think 589 will never even get a chance to be debated.

I live in AZ and now will be without benefits due to the constant bickering in our legislature. 15,000 will lose their benefits. Our economy here is already suffering and this will no doubt hurt our economy more as people won't be able to put food on the table. I am really so sick of our politicians. I will continue with calls, emails, etc all day today.

Thank you laine25. You don't want to give up now. 99erville is not a place you want to go, believe me. I am continuing to email and call for the extended benefits for all unemployed, not just the 99ers.

Thanks for the update Dazed. I tell you I cannot find any info on this issue outside of this forum and an odd news article here and their. Nothing really current on what the status of the bill is. I would have thought they would have passed it yesterday.

KYW Radio in the Phila area is reporting they are still working on this, has not been finalized apparently. I strongly urge all PA residents to keep vocal on this. It's not a done deal as many stations and papers were reporting.

We are hoping Brewer will call another "Special Session", it closed last night, and EB did not pass. Same as everywhere, they were concerned for our AZ business, rates to go up. She had stated that there would be no increase on the businesses due to the change in the law (one word is all the change would have been), just plain evil meaness is what happened.

We also have to deal with Russell Pearce here in AZ...there is a recall petition that is getting a lot of signatures. He is in the legislature and voted against unemployment eb extension. Agree with disgusted withgovt that this is just plain meaness. This is so unfair and heartless.

PA legislatures work in Harrisburg Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, they usually leave early on Wednesday. I read a article that they will stay until Friday if need be to pass this bill. All are for it. Just a couple blips. 100,000 people losing EB is not 100,000 people losing EB it is 100,000 FAMILIES LOSING EB. I don't think that will go over to good, I could be wrong but I'd have my body in Harrisburg so fast. They screwed us out of 6 weeks, probably won't get Hub (7 weeks) because all these people are falling off the rolls. Now I ask you if they are falling off the rolls, they still exist as unemployed and wanting a job. Therefore, I protest losing that additional 13 weeks of unemployment of 'Tier 3 and HuB. I just don't get their understanding we are still in a recession. CNN says there are 39 million Americans unemployed (including all those U 3, 6 9, 13, etc) 39 million Americans out of work, this is worse than the great depression, I was glad when CNN reported that with the 9.1 unemployment rate. The US government ought to take their pants off for all to see, not just Weiner.

I could not agree with you more Dazed. I cannot understand the mentality a lot of our politicans have. I too think this will pass just due to the republican support, but to make us wait and delay payments while they just talk, and talk, and talk with no sense of urgency is unforgivable. I am very grateful for all the benefits I have received thus far, and I am not in as bad a position as some are. However there are many, many families who right now may not have the EB check for food this week due to their delay tatics. Just unforgivable to behave this way tword your fellow man.
