99ers need help today,tommorrow and until hr 589 is signed by pres

Post by Guest on Tue Feb 15, 2011 9:17 am

We all know this has been a long fight for additional weeks, while we feel our chances are slim, there are many like Mr. G, Ed Shultz, Barbara Lee, Bobby Scott, and the list goes onthey are all out there fighting the fight for us, and we cannot let them down. we cannot be with them, or do what they do but we have to do our part to be successful..HR589 is in the ways and means committee with 61 sponsors, that is good...we need to contact the house ways and means committee to get this bill out of committee...we need to flood their offices with communication by fax, phone, email etc.

contact boehner and cantor in addition to your state rep, today, tommorrow and until this legislation is off to the senate

Gregg was kind enough to put together a list of Reps who are no co-sponsors of HR 589. Let's flood them today with emails, faxes, calls and tweets, and keep on it until OUR voices are heard.

"Double flood" Speaker Boehner, Leader Cantor, Minority Leader Pelosi and Whip Hoyer!!

I know its a tough job ahead and the odds are not in our favor with all the posturing and many repubs rejecting before it hits the floor! But doing everything I can! But getting weary by the day! keep us posted with any bright news! Meanwhile, I am going to pis* a lot of them off by sending so many faxes and e-mails the will have to answer me or turn everything off!

Look at it this way 1208, keep hounding them and they are going to get sick of hearing it. We have to WEAR THEM OUT! Keep on nagging!

DIR is right....Nag,nag,nag!! We must be and continue to be a thorn in their side. Congress gets dis-tracked and side tracked very easy,they have the attention span of a gnat. The Middle east is getting by far, more attention then our own domestic problems are. These constant distractions are hurting this country's ability to climb out of this hole....Nag,Nag Nag!!!

I am busy sending out e-mails as we speak. I would call but I am getting over a bad cold and my throat is too sore. I sound like Kermit at the moment.

Emailing this morning as well. I actually have been calling and have to hold off on calls until the 20th, I am almost to my limit on my plan.

I am using Gregg's list and I have also gone through every Rep. I am going to work on the Republicans today. I think we should each contact our Governors as well.

I am very optimistic about this...I really think that the stars are aligned in our favor LOL...while it sounds corny, I really do believe it...and I was one that got goose bumps when someone in sept etc, had said it wont happen until the first of 2011. I thought they were crazy, but here we are we have legislation,,,and 60 sponsors....

contact those republicans....did you see kyle is retiring? I think we wore him out...LOL...or he got the hint...either way, one down several to go....

contact
boehner 202 225 0704 fax
hoyer 202 226 0663 fax
cantor fax 202 225 0011
pelosi fax 202 225 0704

also, please contact ed shultz show and thank him for his support it has been undying...and we owe him alot for keeping the 99ers in the headlines, it is being reported on another thread that he had a 99er on last night..i am sure that someone will be posting the clip shortly..

also for those that are not 99ers please help us with HR589, the additional weeks are not just for 99ers it is a safety net for all unemployed...it is now or never, if this isnt passed now we will never see additional weeks...the current unemployment structure did not increase weeks, it only changed the date..one would have thought that they would have changed the number of weeks, since unemployment keeps on ticking...but they didnt...so those that are unemployed, dont be fooled the economy has not gotten any better than when the 99ers first lost their jobs...this is a safety net HR 589...that all can use..
