If you want to call that action. Razz

But yeah, I just can't watch them either, I think it was Bernie Sanders 11 hour run down on social security that ruined it for me.

Heh, Heh!!! Thanks. I'll be around, sporadically. While I have my own website that I manage for the anime and manga online community, I've decided to start an unemployment advocacy community that will work with you guys here in helping everyone get more information regarding unemployment extensions in Congress. Very Happy

Don't know if there's any movement with congress out this week.

I checked on HR589 on congress.org. It's in the 'hot bills' category but I don't know what it takes to get there. Someone else might know more about that than I do.

The thing that bothers me is that the media doesnt even know we exist, and all the white house keeps saying is how great the economy is doing. How do we make our voices heard???

Guess until next week we MAY find out a little more! But I am not too optimistic with G or Lee and their silence after the big press conference and now silence. even though its in committee if it is at all! They could at least keep folks apprised to their plans and moves as to how they are going to counter any opposition and also their plans to gather more steam and rep. supporters. If they do not continue to communicate then I grow very concerned and doubtful. After this is the exact path Stabenow took! So I do not want history repeating itself. And hope also no one is offended with my view.. If others have different views then state them and if they are more positive then post them and I may have something new to alter my less than positive feelings. But this is how I feel...

I think they know all about us. They just choose to ignore us.

You just have to keep getting your story out there. Send your story to your local media. Call talk radio.

pdsnickels has an excellent media packet. He has gotten the unemployed/99ers worldwide media coverage. The demo on Wall Street even got mentioned on the Glenn Beck Show. (Believe it or not, it wasn't that positive. Very Happy )

Send pdsnickels (co-founder of UWAG & American 99ers Union) your story.

In every email and fax I send I remind them that we are watching closely and that we will remember who helps move HR589 forward and who hinders it. Then I point out that we still have our vote and voices to speak out ,though very little else.

No question they know who we are just we are not a threat to them, so you are correct, they ignore us. Easier to do that than try to pass an unpopular bill right now. No easy answer but we should keep fighting nonetheless!

The republicans want to crush the poor and middle class, I don't think H.R. 589 has a chance. Republicans see the unemployed, 99ers, as a wad of gum under their shoes. They want to ignore us but they can't get rid of us. We will be growing in the numbers as time goes by. Without monetary and strong leaders to stand up for us, we are doomed. Mad

Perfect, the gum campaign, enough tossed out and keeps sticking on their shoes, they will want to get rid of the problem. I like it!

In his own words.....the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee Rep. Dave Camp has expressed full support for federal unemployment benefits so long as they are paid for.

http://camp.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=192748

I am puzzled by this statement on the part of Rep. Camp: " I urge my colleagues to oppose this deficit extending bill today, so we can bring up a real bill that allows us to pass and actually pay for these benefits for the long-term unemployed."

What stopped him and the rest of the Republican Representatives from bringing up their own paid-for bill for exhaustees? The Republicans are now are in the clear majority. Their bill could have been out of Committee and passed in a day I would think.

Yes. Id' like to see a "real bill", one that ties extensions to the unemployment rate. A 14 week extension is barely "real", although better than nothing for people on the verge of ruin.

Something doesn't add up. Rep. Camp's excuse might have sounded sincere when he was in the minority, but I think he's forgetting that he and his fellow Republicans are now running the House. Am I wrong? Where is THEIR bill?

Of course, he had no problem approving the budget-busting tax extensions. Why weren't they offset if he is so concerned with the deficit?
