***Press Release from the Office of Congresswoman Barbara Lee***
March 9, 2010

http://lee.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=57&parentid=35&sectiontree=&itemid=2307

Representatives Lee and Scott, In Letter, Request Meeting with Boehner, Cantor, Camp to Discuss Bill to Give Emergency Benefits to Long-Term Unemployed Workers


March 9, 2011

Media Contact: Joel Payne, (202) 225- 2661

Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Congressman Bobby Scott (D-VA) sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp requesting a meeting to discuss H.R. 589, a bill to extend emergency benefits to long-term unemployed workers. Representatives Lee and Scott introduced the legislation last month, and they want to meet with House Republican leadership to discuss options to address the costs of the bill. The legislation currently has 72 additional House co-sponsors.

H.R. 589 would provide 14 weeks of emergency unemployment benefits to workers who have exhausted all their benefits and are still unemployed. Many of these long-term unemployed workers are relying on this assistance to support their families, make ends meet and contribute to our economy.

Full Text of the Letter Below:

Dear Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and Chairman Camp:

Once again we want to express our deep concern for the plight of millions of long-term unemployed workers across the country. Last week’s unemployment numbers reflect the harsh reality that still exists – while the economy is moving in the right direction, too many workers are still looking for jobs. For every available job opening, there are 4.7 unemployed workers. And many of those workers have been unemployed for a year or longer.

The unemployment rate does not discriminate – the challenges that our constituents face in our districts are just as difficult as the challenges that your constituents are facing in western Ohio, central Virginia and central Michigan. We all have a shared obligation to help our neediest and most vulnerable populations in their hour of greatest need.

The letter we sent you last month requested your assistance in extending emergency benefits for long-term unemployed workers who had exhausted their eligibility. In addition, we requested that these benefits be considered under the emergency designation of PAYGO spending rules, a provision that would exempt emergencies from these rules.

We are disappointed that you disagreed with our belief that this is a true state of emergency for these workers. As we outlined in our previous letter, we believe there is a strong moral and economic case to extend these emergency benefits. Economic experts believe that unemployment benefits provide a stimulative impact to our economy by helping to drive consumer spending. So not only is providing these benefits the right thing to do, but it is sound economic policy.

To be clear, we maintain our position that this legislation deserves to be exempt from PAYGO spending rules under the aforementioned emergency designation, but we are committed to exhausting every possible avenue to pass this bill.

Adding an additional 14 weeks to the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program is estimated to cost up to $16 billion. We want to work with you to identify how best to finance this legislation and ensure its swift passage.

We request a meeting with you as soon as possible to discuss alternative ways to address the costs associated with H.R. 589, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act. We hope that you share our urgent desire to move forward on passing this legislation. There are dire consequences for millions of long-term unemployed workers who are fighting every day to make ends meet so they can support their families. It is time to get serious about taking care of our long-term unemployed workers who continue to suffer.

We look forward to your response and are hopeful that we can meet with you in the near future to discuss the importance of this bill and our plan to pass it.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.

Sincerely,

Barbara Lee Robert C. Scott

Update 3/11/11:

“We’re looking for the money, we’re working with the White House and we’re trying to identify the ‘payfors,” Lee said. She added, “Under the paygo rules there is a provision to allow you to designate something as an ‘economic emergency,” which would allow you to do something without finding the payfor…”

While I am enthusiatic about Ms. Lee sending the letter to Boehner. It doesn't put me at any more ease. Boehner is such a pompass jerk that he will prob. grant the meeting so that he can tell her to her face that NOT GONNA HAPPEN. or he will just simply state he is too busy doing "What the American People Want." to take a meeting with her.

I definately don't think he is going to let it go through as emergency spending, to the repubicans it doesn't seem like anything is an emergency except for overturning Obamacare & slashing the budget. Maybe they should also slash their earnings to also balance the budget.

While I do agree that this bill is a good thing, I seriously don't see the Republicans budging. They've said, time and time again, that they want out of the unemployment business. Republicans are simply going to derail every bill that Democrats introduce just to embarrass the party over all of the bills that they passed during 2009 and 2010.

It's not about passing bills that benefit the American People but about embarrassing the President and the Democrats.

The problem I see with this is that it's going to backfire and the Republicans stand the risk of never controlling Congress or the White House ever again. The problem is that American voters are so tuned into the internet and cable television that they're paying closer attention to what's going on in Washington and this has never happened before, in our nation's history.

Republicans are in the spotlight and every pays more attention now then they did 10 years ago and that is hurting the GOP.

IMO, by passing HR 589 and adding another 14 weeks to Tier 1, allowing millions of 99er's additional benefits, the Republicans will achieve their mission of making the Obama Administration look like a failure. Adding the exhaustees back in the National unemployment rate will make that figure skyrocket and more than embarrass the Democrats.

I believe the Republicans will support a 99er bill, but the Democrats will have to give them something in exchange. Give and take, it has most always been that way.

Unfortunately, this is something that should have been passed last year. Or am I wrong?

Yes, it should have been passed last year, but it is one step at a time (or one hurdle). Gov't only moves fast on UI issues when it is scared. Now, many are settled in and do not feel the same economic threat as last year, that works against the long term unemployed.

Additional cut demands are almost a guarantee for this bill to pass even if it is funded. This shell game has been played for the past two years and I don't expect it to change now.
