All 99ers are trying to ensure that a Tier 5 unemployment extension is on the agenda of candidates for office. The unemployment extension tier 5 movement continues in the wake of primary elections. The debate will continue all the way until the mid-term elections and beyond.
With only a couple of months before the final votes will be cast, keeping an eye on who is for and against the Tier 5 extension is of utmost importance.
Right now, the GOP will likely stalemate efforts to pass the bill that has been proposed by Debbie Stabenow, unless it pays for itself in some miraculous way.
The Senate won’t even be back in Washington to discuss the bill until at least September 13, and it’s unlikely that it’s the first thing on their agenda.
Only candidates worried about safeguarding the American people should be voted in to office. With unemployment extensions at an all time high, you have to ask yourself if someone against the extension is really for the people.
Although primaries in areas such as Alaska wrapped up, there’s still opportunities to vote. This election is crucial to ensure the Tier 5 extension will be passed.
