99ers and Tier 5 Unemployment Extension Updates: A Long Wait Continues for Benefits Extension

A 99ers and tier 5 updates for the unemployment extension brings us an increase in jobless totals, but not an increase in benefits.  Although the Senate is going to leave to campaign soon, there's no confirmation that the bill "Americans want to Work" S 3706 is going to be debated on the Senate floor next week.


With the GOP's focus on the "Pledge to America" and passing the Bush era tax cuts, the unemployment extension is not on the minds of anyone in Washington.


A rally is planned at the Lincoln Memorial on 10/2 for the extension of jobless benefits, although the ultimate success of the rally has been questionable because the Senate will have already taken their break. 


Still yet, on November 30th the current tiers available will expire.  Even though there was a fax campaign by a grassroots agency called the American 99ers union, little has been done to change the politicians' minds about the bill. 


So what is it? Do the sponsors of S3706 really care, or was the creation of the proposal just a well-timed political moved used to create false hope? 


The economy isn't getting any better.  Last week, 12,000 were added to the totals of the unemployed applying for benefits for the first time.  The long wait for the unemployment extension doesn't appear to have made any headway leading many to wonder if there's even hope for a Tier 5 extension.

  1. The Republican's will block the bill. The Dems are using this bill as a pre election political ploy. It's shameful BOTH parties playing political games with the hardpressed unemployed American people.

    We bailed out the banks, the car industry, we need to help the American people until the jobs come back from China and India !

  4. We the people of the United States of America will willingly just bend over. The members of congress we voted in and were appointed now can just give us the big one. The President that we voted in just gives us lip service but isn't man enough to take control.
    I know, the Big Bad Republicans… They are just the same Harvard Liar’s as the Democrats. They all went to the same school and had the same teachers. Hello! Lights are on but nobodies home?
    Yes the most powerful man in the world isn’t able to take control. However he can sell books and give those feel good speeches for money, but can't control companies that want to outsource our jobs. In high school we called them wimps.
    To remain a leader, America needs a real leader not a puppet. (One without a wooden nose)
    A leader like when men were man and women were women...and that's as far as I'll go with that one.

    A leader by its meaning is one who goes first and leads by example, so that others are motivated to follow him. This is a basic requirement.
    To be a leader, a person must have a deep-rooted commitment to the goal that he will strive to achieve it even if nobody follows him!

    I don't know all the people that followed Obama but they got Hope and Change! How do you like it America? Hope you have a job and do you still have change in your pocket...two years and nothing has changed! It has brought hope though...hope you don't get the pink slip tomorrow!

  9. The republicans tea baggers need to wake up and smell the coffee, they're are no jobs out there, and the reasons why the 99ers are in this mess is because of this malice spending on wars and unethical policies of the Bush administration. Listen I am all for cutting spending but don't do it on the expense of hard working american middle class citizens. I hope big daddy loses his jobs because Karma's a bitch! Fuck Glenn Beck's spoiled as....

  11. I can understand why grinkle o is having such a hard time obtaining employment with that attitude. It needs to be adjusted in a jail cell some where. To anonymous 551, there are jobs out there. You just have to look harder and not give up. You can't wait for another government handout that will not happen. Don't be like the loser ginkle o that probably is living off his mama and welfare. Good luck

  12. Listen people who have a job have been attacking the less fortunate it is getting rediculus. Their time will come they have fallen into political schemes and someday it will get them. I am working whatever anyone else thinks but I have friends who exhausted their benefits, went to school and still unable to find living jobs. Unemployment should be extended for ALL Unemployed until normal number return. These people did not cause this the Government and the Businesses did. Wake UP Lets all vote republican and finish the Job they created

  16. Who are these commentators ? . You fools who tell us to get jobs can shove it. You give us jobs. No one is hiring. Tell an interviewer you haven't worked in 18 months because no one will hire you. Do you think they are going to hire you? They are not. They do not hire unemployed people. Especially 99ers. How about we trade jobs with you ?. I am sick of these smart aleck comments. You fools have done nothing to help us. We want Tier 5 and that is our goal. Also the 2000 dollar tax credit in it is very important to giving those idiots incentive to hire us. Take your smart aleck comments elsewhere. These jack ass- employers are not hiring anyone. What do we have to do make them hire us by physical force ? Tier 5 To Survive

  18. Hey, let the 99ers have sort of dignity! Already so down; it will take more than a tier 5 to cheer me up. I'd much rather have a job that paid a living wage. Some of the commentators need to their language up. As for FAT DADDY he can mind his own business! I'm sure he voted for OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Go ahead and make fun of the less fortunate. I assure you that you will be eat your words. We will get a Tier 5 and you guys will be in our place at some point. I pray for it nightly.

  21. It is a shame that people kick you when you are down. What has this country become? 1 out of 7 in poverty. Do you guys really think that the little bit of money we get from unemployment does anything but feed us? If you had any brains at all you would know this. We get to eat -- just like a dog. I don't know anyone who would rather get unemployment than work. ANYONE!! How about everyone who has lost everything they own. Even their homes. You think they are sitting around watching tv -- no there is no TV or electricity. So go ahead and make fun of us if it makes you feel good. Because you are the one I feel sorry for. I don't know what the answer is to deal with this mess but I know you are not the answer.

  22. Nobody is kicking anyone. There are jobs!!!! Look harder, relocate if you have to. quit your self pity, feel sorry for yourself. no one cares.

  27. 99ers and future 99ers don't let these comments get you down. Because the people who are making them are much worse off than us. They don't need us to fire back -- they need us to pray for them because obviously they have no education at all. The only thing the unemployment covers is our food. They probably spend that amount on their animals. Remember what goes around -- comes around. My prayers are with all of you.

Self pity yourself all over the blog site looking for tier 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14.15. I'll bet so. So the government owes you entitlements because you are 60 and considered dead. What a crock.

  36. In response to CRY BABY 8:03. I don't know the answer to that one. I would hope that this economy will improve to the point that anyone could get a job. The way it has always been. I really should not complain I have worked since I was 15 years old and I have always had great jobs. I don't think it is up to me what happens next. I can't change the economy and neither can you. I can't make someone hire me and I'm sure if you were applying for a job you couldn't either. Not because of your age but because you are such an asshole. Get off of this site and POUND THE PAVEMENT and find a friend. Maybe you can hire a friend and get a life.

  44. Why don't we rename this site the Big Daddy site? Since this limp dick is getting the most use out of it. This is the last time I look at it. I don't need to waste my time reading the comments of an impotent, limp dick, republican worshiping looser. I can only hope that Big Daddy gets the same treatment that the 99rs have gotten from the government, and looses everything he has. In the meantime this glen beck wana be needs to get his ass kicked. If he were half a man he'd use his real name. But it's too easy for a gutless pussy like him to use a fake name to give his comments without being faced down by another man. ( If he really is a man.) Ignore him and seek another web site. This one is pointless.

  45. There is not one person in American that likes our government? Only coming from a liberal idiot like you. Everyone on this page loves the government, because they want them to pay their little bills so they can sit on their fat behind. It's called tier 5 federal unemployment extension. If you don't like the government, move. Try Mexico or China.

  49. Tell you all this I was watching CNN this morning and the Republicans that are running for office and the ones in there now are saying they will FREEZE everything including the stimulus money. If Republicans get in, we are not going to get anything. CNN also reported the Democrats want to spend more to help but the Republicans keep blocking it. Remember that folks when you go to the polls. Make sure you go to the polls. The REpublicans are the worse.

  53. Seriously - 99 weeks and no chance for employment. If you really need a job in the USA, you can find something! Maybe not what unemployment has payed but something for crying out loud! Sick of hearing the "McDonalds isn't hiring bullshit". Go to school and get some degree for crying out loud. Obama should of given you some sort of incentive to go back to school. You hired him. Go back to "The View" or "Extra" depending on what time of day it is. What kind of Parents raised you? I'm sure there is some sort of excuse for that. Give us some! 20 more weeks and then what? Not gonna happen.

  56. I can't believe how nasty these remarks are toward 99ers. To those spewing such hatred you should do some research into what the problems are with finding a job right now. There are plenty of articles written about employers not wanting to hire older candidates - those over 40, so even though there are jobs available, they aren't considered. Another problem is a lot of people lack the required skills for a lot of the jobs posted. If you've worked on an assembly line for 25 years, you certainly won't be considered for an accountant's position. It's real easy to say go back to school, but as long as employers prefer under 40 year olds, it doesn't do you any good to get a different degree. There are millions out of work with more added daily. Eventually, they will end up on welfare, which will be paid for by the same people spewing out all these terrible comments. So to all you Big Daddys, we the unemployed 99ers will stick it to you for not bothering to help us.

  66. All we need is the support of 5 (1 in a perfect situation) democratic senators to guarantee the passage of 3706 before the election.

    If 3 to 5 democratic senators would refuse to vote for either the continuing resolution or the war funding bill unless the unemployment extension is attached or passed as a stand alone bill the senate would be forced to extend unemployment benefits.

    If the continuing resolution is not passed by September 30th the government will be shut down October 1, the Democrats will not let that happen right before an election. The republicans would love to see the government shut down by the majority right before the election which means most republicans will not vote for the continuing resolution. Three democrats refusing to vote for the continuing resolution unless a tier 5 is attached would force the government to shut down if a tier 5 is not passed.

    Can we not find 3 democrats willing to help us? We only need 3 or at most 5 democrats to pass a tier 5.

    If we can not find 1 democratic senator willing to help us we need to fire all of them along with the republicans
