Something is wrong with the editing capabilities here.
Everytime I try to post this ATTENTION ALL 99ers! URGENT ACTION NEEDED, message it comes out in HTLM code.
I can't seem to remove the code.

JaneWI: I saw this generic letter posted a couple of days ago and its been on various website to use regarding HR 589 and HR 870: I have used it several times so far.

Dear ----- -------

I am writing you today as a long term unemployed American. In a time when unemployment is so high, when there is one job for every five job seekers, millions of Americans simply cannot be left behind. We are tax paying citizens that are responsible for each and every one of you still being employed. We deserve to be treated better than this. Your colleague Representative Conyers recently introduced H.R. 870, the Humphrey-Hawkins 21st Century Full Employment & Training Act. Combined with H.R. 589 to provide temporary financial relief for those who have exhausted benefits until H.R. 870 can be implemented it is simply the right thing to do, both for the economy and for millions of Americans unable to find work in it.

Respectfully,

An AMERICAN CITIZEN,

JaneWI,

Thank you so much for reposting my announcement to the 99ers.
Now everyone can read it without the HTLM code messing it up.
I don't know what happened, but no matter what I tried last night everytime I tried to post my announcement I could not edit it to look right, it just kept going in the the code language.

I really wish there was something we could do to force this to come out of committee and be brought to the House floor!

(I'm really in a bad way today and not sure if I should really be posting in this mood.)

....and remember, easter break is coming.
Kenny Rogers said: know when to hold them...know when to fold them.......
we need to find work...this bill will never see day light to help us.

do what I did.....go work in a pizza shop, part time with a masters degree in biz and years of background running companies........
i do not lose hope.....get very ''down'' but never hope that i can turn my life around.
i have started a internet biz that needs some help with traffic
product is no problem
traffic is
but maybe i will meet some one here or hire some one to help drive traffic to my site while making pizzas part time for $8.00 an hour for 20 hours per week.

i gave up hope of help from our country
i paid plenty of taxes per year
for many years
worked since i was young
always worked.....had pride.......now, i have heart ache everyday because of limited money

i say to the senators and reps.......あなたの上院議員ねじ (Japanese)
lol......lol......lol......

This is good news from Rep. Lee re HR 589. She is asking for a meeting with Boehner to discuss how to offset the cost and get this passed into law. I feel a little hope, here.

From Donalee
NEW PLAN: 99ers must implore HELP and bombard Speaker Boehner & media non-stop now - continuing until such a time as the 99ers bill (HR589) passes the House.

With the shenanigans in Wisconsin last night, it is easy for Americans to feel their wants and needs are insignificant in the wake of the greedy, corrupt politicians - but never fear: WE MUST FIGHT ON & FIGHT HARDER.
