No, I don't think so the way I heard it is that they understand the urgency of it but now it's a matter of wether to keep it as an emergency designation (which is what Barbara would like to do) or wether they need to look at changing things and making it where it gets paid for.
We'll know more once Arthur from the Huffington Post put his article up he is so good at sorting out everything & putting congressional language into regular speak, plus he'll probably be able to get more info then just that little video showed.
Thanks for clarifying stilllooking. I just hope they can agree to pass it...paid for or not.....and soon.

Sorry to say Doreen there is no guarantee that we will even get the bill out of committee. These things move at a snails pace. Now with the GOP in charge unless it get's them something they want it may never make it.... I still have a glimmer of hope, have to or I would be dead....

The 1st video shows Cantor being asked how the meeting went, he does not respond. The 2nd video has Lee/Scott responding to questions.
I watched the 2nd video. I have to say it is upsetting to me that the issue still seems to be whether this is going to be emergency spending or paygo.

Let go of the idea that this is going to be emergency spending in light of the current political envirement.....PLEASE

I believe it was the Huff Post that said there might be an issue with some of the Dems that they might not vote for it if they try to take a UI bill out of emergency spending and onto paygo... Just Pass the Damn Bill We Are Dying Out Here....
When are the DEMS going to get it through their heads that 589 is not going to pass or even get out of committee as emergency spending. Very frustrating

From the Orange County Register

No action on aid for 99ers
April 14th, 2011, 3:09 pm · 9 Comments · posted by Mary Ann Milbourn

Two House Democrats sat down with two Republican leaders today to discuss additional aid for the long-term unemployed, but no immediate action was taken and none is likely anytime soon.

Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, and Bobby Scott, D-Va., who have sponsored a bill to provide 14 more weeks of unemployment benefits, met with House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

The recommendation: Work with the Ways and Means Committee, where the bill, H.R. 589, has been for the last two months. Meanwhile, Congress leaves this weekend for a two-week spring recess.

Lee and Scott released a joint press release, calling their sit-down a “productive meeting.”

“With almost five unemployed workers for every available job, it would be unacceptable to allow millions of displaced workers who have exhausted their benefits to have no safety net to help make ends meet,” said the statement. “Speaker Boehner encouraged us to work with the House Ways and Means Committee to move this bill forward, and while we will certainly do so, we maintain that these long term unemployed workers deserve a floor vote now.

Frankly, where there is a will there is a way, and we hope that the Republican leadership will show some serious will to move this vital effort forward.”
Boehner and Cantor did not respond to requests for comment.

The Lee-Scott bill would add 14 weeks to the first extension of unemployment, bringing total benefits to 113 weeks from the 99 maximum allowed now. The unemployed who are now collecting benefits and the so-called 99ers, who have exhausted their 99 weeks of aid, would be eligible.

The Democrats and Republicans, however, differ over how to pay for the estimated $16 billion cost of the additional benefits. The Democrats want to categorize the cost as emergency aid and add it to the deficit. Republicans want it offset by other budget cuts.

Sending the matter through normal committee procedures may delay action long enough that a healing economy will take care of the unemployment problem without further help.

The U.S. has been adding jobs this year — 216,000 in March — and the unemployment rate fell to 8.8%, the lowest in two years.
California employers created 96,500 jobs in February, the most recent month available, but unemployment was 12.2%, second highest in the country.
Long-term unemployment has been a particular problem in California. Nearly half of the state’s 2.2 million unemployed have been off the job more than six months, according to the state Employment Development Department.

As of April 12, more than 390,000 laid-off Caifornia workers had exhausted their 99 weeks of benefits. It is unclear how many of those have since found work.
We will have a better idea of how the California’s job market is faring Friday, April 15, when March’s state and local unemployment numbers are released.
