99ers Tier 5 2010 Unemployment Extension

The Unemployment Extension, also known as the Tier 5, has been desired by the 99ers for some time now. With the introduction of the bill S3706, the 99er might have some help soon. However, will it be the end of this year before any headway will be made.

With unemployment at all time highs, and the things we buy keep getting higher everyday it is hard enough to make it when you do have a job. For the 99ers, the task of everyday living just keeps getting harder, that’s why they hope this bill will pass and soon.

President Obama passed the long waited for Unemployment Extension, but it did nothing to help the 99ers. All it did was extend the time to file Tiers 1-4 of the previously approved extensions. The new bill that was introduced, S3706 will give much needed help to the one that was not included in the last bill.

Included in the measure are an additional 20 weeks of benefits on top of the 99 currently available. Tax incentives for businesses to hire workers who have been unemployed over the long term.

We all hope that Congress will address this when they come back from break. Furthermore, it would be a great help to the ones who need it if the bill is passed and on the President desk so the 99ers can get the help they deserve.

  2. Here is what we need to tell every blogger and media outlet!

    Harry Reid sent the Senate home till 9-13-10 without a 99er bill or the Small Business bill. Help remove Reid as leader of the Senate. Then he brings them back for a $600 million bill for border protection, which was a campaign issue in his state. His campaign is his high priority not the families that are going without.


    If you are a 99er or someone that has lost your benefits due to the Senate sitting on their hands. You can’t just blame the GOP. Yes they have blocked everything but there is a way to stop them blocking those issues. Senator Stabenow has a new bill for the 99ers but says she won’t offer it until after they go on break. That is what I am talking about, vacation is more important. Pelosi is calling the house back to pass a small jobs bill. This is for State workers (teachers, police and fireman). So Pelosi is showing toughness but Reid wants his vacation. By Reid coming back for the border bill proves if he would have done that for those two very important bills they would have passed.

    To make them (GOP) pass a benefit package for the 99ers and anyone that has lost their benefits the Democrats could have forced them to not go home until it is done. They also blocked a Small Lending bill for small business from community banks, this was a lending bill to create jobs and didn’t add a dime to the deficit. So that needs passed before one of them goes for over a month vacation. So when I say it just isn’t the GOP it is Harry Reid! He hasn’t shown to be tough. If he thought it is more important for those that have lost than those that have allot then he wouldn’t have gone on vacation.


    So flood Harry Reids phone lines and fax machines until he gets the message. If you don’t help then you have no right to complain. Here are the contact numbers:

    Washington: Phone # 1-202-224-3542 Fax# 1-202 - 224-7327

    Las Vegas: Phone # 1-702-388-5020 Fax# 1-702-388-5030

    Carson City: Phone# 1-775-883-7343 Fax# 1-775-883-1980

    Reno: Phone# 1-775-686-5770 Fax# 1-775-686-5757

    Do not call if you do not have a calling plan that lets you call anywhere in the US without being charged for long distance. Use that money for your family. The rest of us have no excuse to complain then do nothing. Reid did go on vacation without fixing these issues so flood those state lines more. By the way I am not a 99er but believe they paid their taxes and they help build our country and helped pay for those in Washingtons easy lifestyles , now they need our help, you might be in the same situation they are in today.

I swear people in senate take so many vacations and breaks knowing that this country is in desperate need of help. they knew we the 99ers needed an extension also when they passed the recent extension but did they care HELL NO. and watch and see how long its going to take for them to pass the extension. they get our hopes up and then drags this thing out. WE NEED HELP NOW AS IN TODAY HELLO!!!!!!! STOP PLAYING WITH OUR LIVES CONGRESS!!!

  8. when the Senate returns, in another month, the Stabenow Bill ISNT EVEN ON THE AGENDA !!!!Reid would rather bring the Senate back for the Border Bill, and could have kept the Senate in Session until the stabenow Bill was passed, but did he ???? Nope...Vote him and everyone else OUT. Vote for the little guy/gal, the ones that no one has ever heard of. The ones in there now feel they Entitled, just like Sharon Angle. Anyone who voted for her needs to be deported and their citizenship stripped forever.

  9. 99ers will NOT see any money until at least Oct. Im a 99er and am very close to living in a tent, in the Natioanl Forest cause its free. Am also disabled, a Veteran, and not even govt agencies that are supposed to hire the disabled, will even give me an interview. Sadly, Harry reid screwed everyone when he kept going on vacation.Even if they bring the Bill to the floor by sept 20th, we will not see 1 damn dime of help until mid to end of oct. The states take forever to redo their computers.
    Thanks Harry, for destroying the lives of Millions of Children. You WILL pay dearly for that, and as you are burning in hell, remember all the lives that you destroyed.welcome to America...give us your tax dollars, but dont you dare ask or expect any help

  11. f--k all the GOP senate and some od the dems. too
    Lets clean cingress out this November and remove almost all of them. Atleast it will show the newly elected congress that we are no longer playing these games period. Give others a chance to do the right thing. God knows they are not. Then two years later do the same thing before this country crumbles!
    What a mess! Thanks....

  12. It is hard to say this. I'm a 99er and still unemployed. I feel the pain and frustration everyday but at the same time look at the situation as a whole. Lots of us wonder why congress doesn't take any action sooner than later? I think they are broke and need to keep borrowing money to support us when they pass these bills. Why wouldn't they want to help millions of us that can't find work? I think they do and will eventually pass a tier 5 unemployment bill sometime right before the holidays. The sad thing about this is they know they cant help everybody. Too many people unemployed and only so much work out there. Then you have all sorts of problems outside of the country. War needs to stop and peace needs to come soon. The world needs to stop beefing with each other and come to realize what they are doing to hard working citizens that built this country. Stop, just stop. It's not worth it. I hope these world leaders and memebers of our senate come to realize that the problems they've created are going to be thrown back at them. What goes around comes around. Stop. Please! why destroy life thats good and turn it upside down?

  13. If this scenario plays out like it's predecessors, the GOP'ers will trot out some stuffed shirt from the Heritage Foundation lamenting about how unemployment insurance benefits keep the laid off from accepting those "jobs" that 6 people for every one available apply for. Then some bailed out bank economist will sing the praises of selective fiscal conservatism, followed by a Grand Oil Party filibuster until they get the bribes that turn the vote. All the while, foreclosures and late notices are visited upon the folks that paid in to the system for decades. The Wall Street Urinal, the tabloid sheet apologist for the cess pool that our financial system has become, will run a cogent editorial justifying executive bonuses. Thanks for nothing.

  14. When the “unemployed” realize that they must start taking care of themselves and that the corrupt government does not care to keep them alive other than to buy their votes is the day they will start to take their lives back. Jobs are not magically created (especially by a government dictator, example: Cuba). Sadly most of the “unemployed” see potential employers as the enemy and have the “cut off the heads of the capitalists” attitude. Lack and suffering always follow the entitlement mindset. These are harsh words to some but will in the long run be seen as much kinder than a handout. As a wise person once said; “those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it”.

  16. The Senate needs to be brought ASAP to pass this bill to help the 99ers. Reid bought them back to vote for The Border bill, why can't they consider this an emergency. I'm so sick of all of this play polictics at our expense, give off your a**es and do your job like we sent you to Washington to do, we don't have the patient or the time for all of the games to see who gets brownie points. WE NEED HELP AND WE NEED IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. This is the dumbest article yet. How do the person who wrote the column know when Congress will act? The Republicans better remember the election in November, since they have become the party of "NO".

  19. It has been drummed in my head , since I was a child , that suicide was NOT AN OPTION ! Now , I'm not so sure !! If Govt. would rather abandon its' Veterans , and , Born Here Citizens (ie:Taxpayers) , Elderly , Families and Children , then there is little or no other option . I , once LOVED THIS COUNTRY , but , now , with money going overseas , instead of helping our own people , and , the future of the U.S., I have little faith , or , hope , that our country will survive . At 57 years, I've seen the American values , confidence , and , dreams of the American People Destroyed by Drugs , War , Open Borders , and , mostly , the total Incompetence of our elected officials . I now , unfortunatetly , believe that leaving this "FIASCO" , on my own terms , is , in fact , the ONLY Logical response . ( Not that one more will be missed ) As an old man once told me,( he was 82 ), " If we're having FUN ,,, I don't want to Play , anymore". Yes , I've lost my faith in our Govt. Perhaps , they just might in the near future , CARE about the U.S. People in general , instead of their next "Vacation" !!!! GOD BLESS THE U.S.A. and OUR PLANET EARTH !! ONLY TIME WILL TELL ! ( Remember : Do onto others etc. etc. etc. ) My Love To ALL . An insignificant Human Being .

  21. The current corrupt government is in the business of telling you that they are going to SAVE you, “save or create” jobs, etc. If you continue to hold your hand out to them you will be much the worse for it. They are not out to help you but to use you for their greater power until they have so much power that your vote is no longer needed, at which point you will stop receiving your government “benefits”.

  22. Your right 8:32pm post, our corrupted goverment has created this mess we are in. They control the news media and every other aspect. It is the begining of new world order, what the members of the iluminati have been working on for years now.
    When they have caused enough of the population to be desperate, homeless and starving the goverment will then create the illusion they are going to save you. What they wil really do is impose martial law, cart you up, displace family members and carry you to FEMA prison camps where you will be housed, fed, uniformed and assigned into federal work brigades. Look up iluminati, fema prison camps, new world order on you-tube.
    It is all there and it is what our evil corrupted goverment has in store for us. They figure all us unemployed that have lost everything are the perfect canidates for their population control plan.

  23. There might be help for the 99ers sometime in the next couple years but however there is no retro-pay .. so what good is it to get people back on their feet? .. a lousy 300 a week is not going to land you an apartment just that easily... and now the credit report is hurting because of unpaid bills .. so the next fight will be with any dirty landlord who absolutely needs a credit check ... just to get told "nope" i will not rent to you ... or for all those who lost their homes and sold every possession they had.... it would take 20 or more years to start from scratch again to gain what you once had ... and lost it all to the fate of the government.... so whats the 99'ers really getting? a little hush money so they will go away .. thats even if they will even consider the new bill. As for new jobs??? this keeps getting better .... 2 local companies here just went out of business or soon will be... having their closeout sale. ... So where are these new jobs? .. we can not expect people to hire if they no longer have a business to employ. Hell NASA alone is in the midst of laying off thousands of employees, because it was contract work... How the hell do you think they will feel when trying to get a job and being told "overqualified"? .... oh yeah i can imagine they would be for just about anything.... and part time workin yee ole McD's .... where the hell will that get anyone? ... you can not live on minimum wage at 40 hours a week let on ... less than 30.. .... People Businesses are still closing because of the economy .... there are no new jobs. TO whomever writes these reports about the enconomy is getting better???/ ..... come to PA watch our state clowns run this state into the ground and the empty buildings that once contained stores or some other line of employment... and tell me there are jobs!

  27. Lets remember who is responsible for us 99ers not getting extensions, it is the GOP who has kept all the extensions from day one delayed, the REPUBLICIANS who don't give a damn if we starve or become homeless. Harry Reid has been fighting for us all along, and I praise all of his efforts. Vote in November and make sure we get all of those Republicans OUT OF OFFICE!!!!!

  28. Excuse me if this country can give aid to other foreign lands, fund wars, etc., they can give the 99ers an extension. With all of the negative comments on here, we will never get anything unless we ban together and let them know we all need it.

  34. I think the 99ers need to start declaring Chapter 7!!! If you get 2.5 million people starting to do it at once. The banks and the credit card companies will start to panic. If you do the math that is 50 Billion, yes Billion dollars!! They will go to congress(since they seem to own it,lets be honest) and congress will suddenly have to give more money to the unemployed to prevent further filings.
    From the 99ers point of view, by declaring chapter 7 you are saving what ever you can. Just think of how much you could save by walking away from all the credit card debt you built up to survive. It is hitting them where it hurts in the wallet just like they did to us!!!!
    I know this idea is radical but it is just something to think about.

  38. i know the GOP cares little about the little man but the DEMS are no better, they lie and try to act like they care but they really do not want to even talk about a tier 5. When obama goes to these town hall meetings he does not even talk about tier 5 or trying to help us until there are more jobs. I say just vote them all out and start clean.
