Che

I need the second unemployment extension so bad. I had interviews but now companies are changing their minds about bringing on new workers. I cry every day. Right now it is almost impossible for a poor person to get a job. I am very sick too an pay for my health care. The Senate needs to suffer like I do. I'm in so much pain. I can't afford my medications for my sugar and that is with co-payments. I've always had hope but now I am so low. I'd do almost anything for work and health care. Please God touch the cold as stone hearts of the Senate and make then change to think of us. What happens on Wall Street happens to me.

I hope things turn around for you soon, Che. For you and the economy as a whole. You make an important point that it's not just this current economic crisis that needs to be addressed, but the health care system that also needs to be fixed.

I hope they pass a second unemployment bill. It is getting harder and harder for the unemployed getting jobs with the economy getting worse. When I go to the unemployment office, I see that there are more and more people being unemployed. How can you get a job when more companies are closing and more people are unemployed. If Bush can introduced bills to provide sending billions overseas why are we not taking care of our own country.

Ff they're bailing out the funny-money-playing bums in the banks and on GALL Street, why can't they help us "Joe Six-Packs" out here who need the much-needed help through the end of the year?

When I AM working, my taxes help feed Professional Welfare Queens of BOTH genders and ALL colors.

Thank God for the excellent health I've had all my life. There's NO way I can afford health insurance, which galls me SO much when I see the FREE medical care millions of illegal immigrants are getting!

Cher

Is there a second extension for unemployment in the bill that was passed today?

SRC

At least you have had interviews. I am hoping for the second extension as well.

rdd

you aren't the only one i wish something would give

My benefits expired on October the 8th,2008 I still have not been able to find a job since December 2007. If we are expected to bailout Wall Street when will we get a simple extension for 13 weeks or 26 weeks, to bail us out?

We are always getting screwed, and taken advantage of. The lawmakers we elect do not know what it like to be unemployed, and not able to put food on the table. And what's more they don't care. They need to be voted out, and make them unemployed.

Reputation is a privilege, not a profession.


WE NEED ANOTHER EXRENSION NOW..................

PHOENIX ARIZONA
Arizona the poorest state in the country

True American against False Gov't

F$@k Bailing out Wall Street...How about Main Street?...I've been through 2 layoffs under the Bush Administration and have taken a decrease in pay 3 times just to feed my family ...If it wasn't for the average American person there would be no Wall Street. The Gov't gives the money back to the CROOKS who got us in this mess..Why?..Cause the Gov't is just as corrupt...Every Congressman should be imprisoned for passing that bailout..better yet SHOT!! It's time for a revolution..WAKE UP AMERICA!!!. EVERYONE WHO IS UNEMPLOYED SHOULD PROTEST ON WALL STREET THEN MARCH TO THE U.S. CAPITOL TO TAKE ON CONGRESS. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE AND EVERY TRUE AMERICAN SHOULD BE MAD AS HELL!!!
