- This section extends unemployment insurance benefits through January 3, 2013. Further, this section will increase the length of unemployment eligibility from 99 weeks to 114 weeks to provide relief to the long-term unemployed. Unemployment compensation creates consumer demand to fuel the businesses that create jobs.”

HR 3630 will never pass the Senate! It isn't going anywhere. If it does pass the House, all that is going to do is stall any reauthorization of the current program, probably into the next year!

I will try to locate the bill number assigned to the CPC's proposal today.

You can now read the full text of this bill. Section 1702 reads about adding weeks to tier I for 99ers.

I pray this bill is not dead in the water. it appears as if its still alive for now, it will be a fight for sure.

Marian....
Does this include help for Exhaustees or 99'ers. I believe it does? We need to do something, I'm not sure how much longer I can hold on. Living with a friend who pays for everything and she is WAY FED UP with me, almost ready to have no place and getting $200 in food stamps, thats it...the only help.

I am calling, faxing, emailing, tweeting, facebooking ect. Just frustrating no help and Most of Congress seems o.k. with that.

Yes it does include help for 99ers. It would also create 5 million new jobs, among many other good things. I just updated the thread about this the other day because they finally attached a bill number to it. I was so glad to see the text of the bill!

Im going to merge the threads and incorporate this title in with the other one.

I doubt the bill will even make it out of the ways and means. I wanna be wrong but there talking about cutting weeks. It's horrible because the jobs arnt there the reports look good but that is because holiday jobs. Also PA's ue rate has went down but still the part of PA I am from the UE rate is near 12% but the overall PA rate has went down just not right.

An ESSENTIAL part of a democracy is an informed electorate.....
Both parties are composed of many "unenformed" people..

watching the ed shultz show when he mentioned that we have the tea-partiers to thank for backing some of the more radical rightwing governors, and giving the American people a glimpse of what the radical right wing wants, thereby stirring the Ocupy movement into action accross the world......

I have faith that the majority of people want what is best most of the time...they are just so uninformed till it hits home....

to paraphrase winston churchill "the american people will do the right thing, after exhausting the alternatives".....

This time around there really is some attention being drawn to the rightwing, more and more so...

By the way it really galls me to see the right harp on about "the constitution"
when one of its primary duties is to protect minorities from "democratic/mob rule"
