The long awaited Benefits Extension was signed into law last week by President Obama, but didn't take into consideration the millions of jobless Americans with no extensions left. The true question to ask ourselves now is: What about the 99ers? A tier 5 was not in the bill but there are thousands of Americans still without the needed benefits.
The bill that was signed into law was a good start, but it was cut short for many people who are still left without any benefits. Will there be a Tier 5? Only time will tell, the way the economy is many Americans goes to bed every single night hoping that a Tier 5 will be passed.
As of today, there is nothing on the books for a Tier 5 and the bill that was signed in was a start, for many Americans it was just not enough. With unemployment at an all time high, or at last where many of us have never seen and it seems like everyday things you buy keep getting higher many without a job could use a Tier 5.
The question for many people who didn’t benefit from the new bill is willthere be a new bill that will include the 99ers? One can only hope that the government can see that many of us still need help in these hard and troubling times.
