H.R. 589. Rep. Barbara Lee speaks on her bill for 99ers, H.R. 589, at a Progressive Caucus press conference this morning, Though there is a bunch of language and references to "unemployment insurance" in President Obama's jobs plan it does not specifically mention if the extension is for 99ers.

scratch I don't understand what is so vague in this bill that they have to consult with Gene Sperling, legal counsel to Treasury Sec. Geithner, and Director of the National Economic Council.

President Obama and Harry Reid want this bill passed by the end of the month, Cantor and McConnell have already said "NO", how can anything be done before they know what they are debating and voting on?

I feel that they WILL keep ignoring us. They believe 99 weeks is ENOUGH too but are cowards to say it outright because we are a political HOT potato that can burn them in an election year. They think that IF you don't say ANYTHING about us then IT doesn't exist. I truly feel this is their UNOFFICIAL "yet"Official policy. Washington DC is REALLY !@#$%! at this point. Sad

Reid doesn't want it passed and they don't have enough Dem votes in the Senate I'm sick of both parties especially the lip service paid to the UE by one

Dear Congresswoman Barbara Lee,
Thank you so much for taking the time to stand up and fight for us. We know you are a busy woman of God and H.R. 589 is our last hope. Don't give up we know you can do it!

HR 589 - Barbara's Back (Oct 6 Update - 99er Issue To Be Discussed) - Page 3 Empty 99ers benefits in FED-ED Extension?

Post by buddylove on Wed Oct 05, 2011 4:57 pm

Remember when Obama told the CBC passing this bill would require a trick play. http://www.crewof42.com/cbc/99ers-comes-up-again-during-meeting-with-president-obama/

American Jobs Act
Reform Unemployment Insurance System to Provide Greater Flexibility, While Ensuring 6 Million People Do Not Lose Benefits ($49 billion)

I thought HR 1745 (jobs act of 2011 LOL) would cut 31 billion from our hands. http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/122xx/doc12208/hr1745.pdf
49-31 is 18 billion dollar difference, hmmm

Congress has never dropped EXTENDED BENEFITS with a national unemployment rate above 7.2 percent.

American Jobs Act
Section 312 – Temporary Extension of Extended Benefit Provisions. This section generally provides for the extension of certain extended benefits. Subsection (a) would extend 100 percent Federal funding of most extended benefits (EB) by one year to January 4, 2013. Subsection (b) would extend 100 percent Federal funding of the first week of EB by one year to June 9, 2013. Subsection (c) would extend by one year the temporary modification to EB indicators, which makes it easier for EB to remain payable in states, to December 31, 2012. Subsection (d) would provide that the amendments made by this section take effect as if included in the enactment of the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2010.

this part would be based on the unemployment rate in your state. my last extension was for 20 weeks on EB, the unemployment rate was over 12% and its still over 12% in California. its funny how the state of Oregon can get over 99 weeks, but the rest of the state legislators cannot get there shitt together. Were it not for the persistence of Rep. Barbara Lee the issue would NEVER be discussed in the White House.

Today's jobs report indicates that the private sector added 91,000 jobs, however, it expects to take a hit next month, losing an additional 161,000 per their reports. They are not going to forget about any of the unemployed. It's up to us not to let it happen. HR 589 - Barbara's Back (Oct 6 Update - 99er Issue To Be Discussed) - Page 3 34243

Just want to bump this thread up for those who are new to being 99'ers.

http://www.unemployed-friends2.org/t3720p45-hr-589-barbara-s-back-oct-6-update-99er-issue-to-be-discussed#45796

http://www.unemployed-friends2.org/t3720-hr-589-barbara-s-back-oct-6-update-99er-issue-to-be-discussed#43381

Just don't want to see this nonsense become circular again and I don't want anyone's hope raised unnecessarily.

It's just cruel.

There's more history going backwards in time. This should be enough.

Barbara is back leading the fight against The Susan Koman Foudation. She spoke passionately about it on MSNBC yesterday. No mention of the unemployed.

I posted a video of her just the other day giving a great speech to the House about why the UI benefits should be extended for longer than 99 weeks. Check it out! I posted here!

Hi Marian,

Thanks... I did see that. Problem is that this is a pattern that has been going on for a long time. It's a show, unfortunately. Nothing more.
