It's come to my attention that some folks are using this letter, so I figured I'd put it somewhere that's easy to find. I honestly believe that short and sweet is the way to go with emails. Congressperson staffly sorts aren't going to read full page emails, they skim them at best. I edited it a little for grammar and added American 99ers Union to it. If someone has all of the contact information in one easy to find copy and paste file, I'll add that here as well. If not, bear with me while I collect it all so it's all in one place.


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 for consideration. Combining H.R.589, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2011, with H.R.870 to provide temporary financial relief for those who have exhausted benefits until H.R.870 can be implemented is simply the right thing to do, both for the economy and for millions of Americans unable to find work in it.

'Thank you for contacting me with your support for H.R. 589, the proposed Emergency Unemployment Compensation Expansion Act. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

As you may know, H.R. 589 would amend the Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2008 to provide 14 additional weeks of first-tier emergency unemployment compensation. If enacted, this legislation would benefit the "99ers", the Americans who have exhausted all of their unemployment benefits.

H.R. 589 was introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee of California on February 9, 2011 and referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means. Should this legislation begin moving forward in the legislative process, please be assured I will keep your views in mind when deciding how to vote.

In addition, the House Ways and Means Committee, on which I serve, is expected to take a look at comprehensive reforms to the unemployment compensation system. This review is needed to make sure that workers who find themselves out of a job through no fault of their own receive the assistance they need and that the unemployment compensation system is effective and efficient. This review may also lead to innovative reforms that allow workers to gain experience and develop relationships with employers to improve their prospects for returning to full-time employment.

Again, thank you for contacting me with your support for extending emergency unemployment benefits. If I can be of any assistance to you or your family in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Rep. Jim Gerlach (PA)'


This is the first I've heard that the W&M Cte may look into some kind of 'innovative reforms'.....but I don't know what that means.....

On one hand, vague terms like that scare me. On the other? You got a response on H.R. 589 from a Republican? Wow.

When they say "REFORM" I automatically think of states like Indiana and Florida where the powers that be want to REDUCE the number of weeks of regular unemployment. The "unemployed" are costing too much and the governors want to cut their budgets on everything. They had better be prepared for the continuing flood of persons applying for SNAP and other emergency assistance to help the unemployed.

Advocacy Letter & Contacts. 40508

New week. Need to start pushing and pushing hard. I don't think Open Congress has updated yet, but I saw a tweet from the American 99ers Union earlier that we picked up another co-sponsor over the weekend. Lee and Scott are still working and pushing hard, but they can't do it without us.

Post by sbraney on Mon Mar 14, 2011 10:40 am

I received the following letter from the President:


March 14, 2011


Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans who are losing their jobs and struggling to pay their bills. Every day, I meet with my economic advisors to
make sure we are doing all we can to create good jobs and to help Americans
support their families and pursue the American dream.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was the first step to spur job growth
and ease the pain of unemployment. This landmark law has saved or created
millions of jobs here at home in industries such as alternative energy, health
care, and construction. By extending and increasing emergency unemployment
compensation and increasing access to health insurance, the my
Administration has also provided relief to millions of unemployed Americans, and
has helped improve our Nation's economic outlook. Additionally, I signed
legislation that will help small businesses -- the engine of growth on Main
Streets across our country -- thrive, grow, and hire by providing
them with
tax breaks and better access to credit.

However, many Americans are still struggling to find employment and provide for their
families. To assist workers looking for jobs, I signed into law the Worker,
Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act, extending unemployment benefits
beyond what existed in the Recovery Act. To restore desperately needed
assistance to Americans who lost their jobs in the recession, I also signed into
law the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2010, as well as an extension
of COBRA benefits.

My Administration is also helping Americans return to work by emphasizing job
training in industries that cannot be outsourced. Recently laid-off workers
receiving unemployment benefits have new opportunities to pursue higher
education and job training programs, including easier access to Pell Grants. To
encourage job creation in the United States, I am replacing tax laws that send
jobs overseas with new incentives to create them here at home. Available
assistance can be found online at http://go.usa.gov/aU7 or www.Opportunity.gov.

Together, we can help more Americans find and keep good jobs and enjoy a healthy standard of living. To find an employment center near you, select your state at: www.dol.gov/dol/location.htm. For information on benefits and opportunities for those seeking employment, I encourage you to visit: http://go.usa.gov/aUA. For career resources, call 1-877-872-5627 or visit: www.CareerOneStop.org. While it will
take time to turn our economy around, I am confident that, working together, we
will emerge from this crisis stronger than before.



Thank you, again, for writing.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama

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 for consideration. Combining H.R.589, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2011, with H.R.870 to provide temporary financial relief for those who have exhausted benefits until H.R.870 can be implemented is simply the right thing to do, both for the economy and for millions of Americans unable to find work in it.

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 for consideration.
