With Byrd's Replacement Chosen, Democrats Prepare To Advance Unemployment Benefits Extension

July 21, 2010 by  

With Byrd's Replacement Chosen, Democrats Prepare To Advance Unemployment Benefits ExtensionWest Virginia Governor Joe Manchin announced last week that he will nominate his former aide Carte Goodwin to fill the seat of former Senator Robert Byrd, a longtime Democratic lawmaker who died last month.

Goodwin, who is expected to be sworn in this week, has already announced that he will vote along party lines and help Democrats extend unemployment benefits to 2.5 million Americans who have been out of work for nearly a year.

With Manchin’s former aide on board, Democrats will have enough support to overcome a Republican filibuster and advance the measure, which has already been passed by the House.

GOP senators have blocked the extension for more than a month due to the fact that it will add $34 billion to the already record-breaking national debt, according to the Associated Press (AP).

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced that he will schedule a vote on the measure just minutes after Goodwin is confirmed.

However, the soon-to-be senator said last week that he will not support the Democratic-backed cap-and-trade bill that the Obama administration plans to reintroduce in the coming weeks.

"I will not support any piece of legislation that threatens any West Virginia job, any West Virginia family or jeopardizes the long-term economic security of this state," he warned.

Goodwin also noted that he will not look to continue his run as senator beyond this year, CBS News reports. However, Manchin indicated that he is interested in the seat, and may enter the special election in November.

    Thank God, West Virginia won’t be able to truly ‘replace’ Byrd. One Byrd in a lifetime is more than enough. Since one of Herr Obummer’s goals is to put an end to coal mining, I’d think the good people of WV would have multiple alternative plans to compensate for the concentrated lack of leadership in Washington (and WV’s state capital?).
    Assuming that jobs (AND coal mining) are important to WV, one would think that Herr Obummer would be seen as ANYTHING but a ‘savior.’ If a prez had plans to put me out of a job (for my own good, of course), that prez would NEVER get my vote or my support. Wake up, WV. Would you rather have an incompetent, job-destroying community organizer for a prez, or would you rather keep your job?

      What,exactly, are you inanely going on about? You are so off focus, come down from the kreul-aid,gather your thoughts and try again.

    • Dan Burke

      So to pass Cap and Trade, all they need for this guy’s vote is some concessions or promises so that it at least appears to cover his promise. Maybe another promise of executive order will do? Like the one that worked so well for abortion opponents on the health care bill? Or maybe a “corn husker” deal?

      99′ers?!? How about the 999′ers? How about extend benefits for life? Would that make you happy?

  • Doc Sarvis

    The unemployment benefits extension is needed by many people who lost their job due to Wall Street and other high roller’s unwise/greedy decisions.

    • Christin

      You know guys… that TWO YEARS of UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS is a LONG time. We, the TAX PAYERS, are footing the BILL for ALL the GOVERNMENT SPENDING… even if it’s paid for… (PAY/GO… pay as you go.)
      I feel for the unemployed, BUT it seems that the Democrats/Progressives and Marxist White House WILL NEVER FIX THE ECONOMY if we keep satisfying the unemployed (and the 47% Entitlement population). If NO ONE is screaming to the President and Congress to STOP SPENDING, CUT TAXES, and STOP PASSING JOB KILLING BILLS (Cap & Tax, Financial Reform, obamacare take over) then it WILL NOT GET DONE. Washington DC will keep doing what they do… pass lousy laws, spend our hard earned money, and REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH!!!!!!

      Bryd was BAD, let’s hope you guys in Virgina can elect a Constitutional Conservative to allow your state and our country to PROSPER once again… if it is not too late.

    • JeffH

      Gee Doc, maybe if the government would support the free market and small businesses rather that continue to gorge itself and continue to be obese we could see a little light at the end of the tunnel. Nice ting about a liberl though, they certainly like to blame everybody else but the thieves in Washington for the job shortage.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        JeffH
        nah, we tax payers should just go get a part time job as well to pay MORE taxes to support those that don’t wish to work!!! I agree that it is hard for those that are laid off but two years of unemployment???

    • Rick

      How about the poor spending habits of the people? Nobody saves anymore.

  • rick c

    so sorry regina,but unlike you I know we and our next several generations will have to pay for all this and i will vote the dems out in nov. and hopefully the socialist regime in the w.h. in 2012 !

    • BigBadJohn

      Rick, you are missing it completely! Reagan TRIPLED the national debt and Bush with a republican congress AND senate DOUBLED it again!

      Bush inherited a 350 billion dollar surplus and left Obama with a 1.5 TRILLION dollar deficit!

      REPUBLICANS are responsible for 75% of the national debt – don’t believe what Rush and Beck tell you!

      • J.Michael

        BRAVO! BRAVO! Alot of the people here have a memory problem.

      • possum

        It appears to me that you ars either a liar or a fool. Bush did not have both a majority in the house and the Senate. Maybe if you live long enough to see the tearing apart of our ONCE great Nation. Fools get what they deserve.

        • BigBadJohn

          Think you have a brain hemorrhage or something.
          REPUBLICANS controlled BOTH HOUSES from 1992 to 2006. Bush was president from 2000 – 2006 that means he had a LOCK on government for SIX years!

          • BigBadJohn

            oops I meant from 1994 – 2006

          • http://?? Joe H.

            BBJ,
            first 1996 to 2006 is ten years not six! Second, bush did NOT inherit a surplus!!! Clintoon used the social security money not yet used and added it to make it LOOK like there was a surplus!!! Let’s see now, that’s about 200 times you progressive liberals have been told that here and you still don’t get it!!! check out the government site for the budget for those years and you will see it!! quit repeating the party mantra!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            BTW, Bush was President till 2008! and 92 to 2006 is 14 years!!!

        Hey, lets start with President Washington and see what we can blame him with. How about that Lincoln guy ? They all played a part in Obama’s screwed up Presidency. Right ? Poor Obama. Lets make the USA the USSA.

          • DW

            Little John,
            Time and time again, anyone reading the mainstream news or reading articles on the Internet will read the claim that President Clinton not only balanced the budget, but had a surplus. This is then used as an argument to further highlight the fiscal irresponsibility of the federal government under the Bush administration.

            The claim is generally made that Clinton had a surplus of $69 billion in FY1998, $123 billion in FY1999 and $230 billion in FY2000 . In that same link, Clinton claimed that the national debt had been reduced by $360 billion in the last three years, presumably FY1998, FY1999, and FY2000–though, interestingly, $360 billion is not the sum of the alleged surpluses of the three years in question ($69B + $123B + $230B = $422B, not $360B).

            While not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, it’s curious to see Clinton’s record promoted as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the facts support that position. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billion.

            Verifying this is as simple as accessing the U.S. Treasury (see note about this link below) website where the national debt is updated daily and a history of the debt since January 1993 can be obtained. Considering the government’s fiscal year ends on the last day of September each year, and considering Clinton’s budget proposal in 1993 took effect in October 1993 and concluded September 1994 (FY1994), here’s the national debt at the end of each year of Clinton Budgets:
            Fiscal
            Year Year
            Ending National Debt Deficit
            FY1993 09/30/1993 $4.411488 trillion
            FY1994 09/30/1994 $4.692749 trillion $281.26 billion
            FY1995 09/29/1995 $4.973982 trillion $281.23 billion
            FY1996 09/30/1996 $5.224810 trillion $250.83 billion
            FY1997 09/30/1997 $5.413146 trillion $188.34 billion
            FY1998 09/30/1998 $5.526193 trillion $113.05 billion
            FY1999 09/30/1999 $5.656270 trillion $130.08 billion
            FY2000 09/29/2000 $5.674178 trillion $17.91 billion
            FY2001 09/28/2001 $5.807463 trillion $133.29 billion

            As can clearly be seen, in no year did the national debt go down, nor did Clinton leave President Bush with a surplus that Bush subsequently turned into a deficit. Yes, the deficit was almost eliminated in FY2000 (ending in September 2000 with a deficit of “only” $17.9 billion), but it never reached zero–let alone a positive surplus number. And Clinton’s last budget proposal for FY2001, which ended in September 2001, generated a $133.29 billion deficit. The growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton budget, not in the first year of the Bush administration.

            Numbers don’t lie if you really read them.

          • BigBadJohn

            DW I agree under Clinton the national debt never went down. But do you believe ANY number that ANYONE in the government publishes?

            What Clinton did was to make a principal payment against the national debt, the ONLY president in 40 years to do that. But due to service on the debt the total still went up!

            That is what amazes me, everyone on this blog seems to think the debt is somehow Obama’s fault. They seem to ignore the fact that even with a good economy, and Clinton making a principal payment on the debt – the debt still went up. Just how does anyone believe that another party can bring the debt down?

            Obama is running about a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit. If he simply un-did Bush’s policies he could bring that down to 700 trillion. Bush tax cuts 400 billion, Bush’s war for imperialism another 400 billion.

      • alpha-lemming

        Dear B.B. Toilet
        Sorry… but FACTS are stuborn things. Please refer to the U.S. Constitution (I think you’ve been reading the Communist Manifesto… or somethin’… not sure from where your false facts arise) and you will find… the POTUS did not/Constitutionally CANNOT spend 1 dime. Who did the spending?? Don’t look it up…. I’ll tell you… It’s the LEGISLATURE!! Ergo, Reagan did not triple the debt… his policies DID increase revenues to the government… but the Commie-crat Congress not only sustained government, they GREW it exponentially… faster than the increased revenues were coming in. Over the past century, the Commiecrats have run Congress (refer 2 sentences back….. they’re the ones that do the spending) twice as much as Republicans, and most of those (’94-’06 being the most recent example) are Progressive Commiecrat-Lite types. The financial mess is TOTALLY due to lib/prog/communist legislatures (87.5 out of the last hundred years) enacting their (your??) “One World Utopia” social experiment that HAS NEVER WORKED ANYWHERE IT’S BEEN TRIED AT ANYTIME IN ALL OF HISTORY!!

        • BigBadJohn

          Dear Lemming licker, you obviously have no clue about the budget process. You are correct the POTUS does not spend one dime, however, he has the right to veto any budget presented to him effectively giving him MORE power than the Congress and Senate combined.

          The president lays out what he wants to see and what he will accept to the congress. Congress comes up with a budget which is passed to the Senate. The senate makes whatever modifications it see’s fit and pass’s it to the president. If the bill that the president receives does not have his tax cuts or whatever it is that he wanted – he veto’s the budget and it starts all over again.

          • Christin

            No wonder you named yourself “Big Bad John”… you are being bad. No need to attack personally… just discuss the topic civilly.

            Clinton had a Demo congress in the beginning and they were voted out with a passion when they went to the Left and Hillarycare scared Americans to death and rightly so. Bush had a Repub congress who spent too much and they were voted out and the demo’s went on an even bigger spending spree.

            FYI: This 2010 Progressive Liberal Congess did NOT even Bother to Pass a BUDGET, but are just spending anyway without a vote on a budget!!!!!!!! That’s a new one even for Congress.

            Quit with the Demo / Repub blame game… the Congress and the Government are NOT REPRESENTING US anymore. They have their OWN AGENDA for America and it’s not pretty.

          • alpha-lemming

            I have no clue AND I’m correct…. hmmmm… I’ll have to ponder that one a little more. Sure wish I knew more about the process. What we really need is some kind of process that would allow our benevolent masters to… oh I don’t know.. over ride vetos so “dose mean ol pwesidents” can’t triple the debt. The founders really dropped the ball on that one… a truly heinous oversight.

          • BigBadJohn

            Christin, “Quit with the Demo / Repub blame game… the Congress and the Government are NOT REPRESENTING US anymore. They have their OWN AGENDA for America and it’s not pretty.”

            I AGREE 100% !!!!!

            But the main thread here is “republicans good – Democrats Bad! ”
            That is just not so – Are democrats making mess of things – sure. BUT the republicans are the ones that put us in this mess in the first place! Just simply voting democrats out and putting republicans back in power is not going to fix one single thing, and will probably make things worse!

            The problem with the other option, libertarians and constitutional conservatives, is they hate ALL Government regulation. History shows what happens when industry is completely deregulated. Monopolies, hazardous waste dumps where people live, no worker protections, unsafe working conditions, predatory business practices to eliminate all competition especially small business’s, savings and loan crisis, banking crisis, artificial shortages to run up prices. I am sure I am missing a bunch more, but the point is if greed is not regulated, everyone suffers.

        • BigBadJohn

          Dear Lemming licker please check your facts – the republicans controlled BOTH the congress and the Senate from 1994 to 2006. It was those pesky conservatives that bankrupted us.

          • alpha-lemming

            They aren’t conservatives!!! They’re liberals with an R beside their name (bailout-1, steel subsidies, free drugs etc.etc.) or did I type that too fast for you to read.

    Why not pay for it with funds on hand?

    Simply put, Obama is using that money, billions and billions as a “Thug” like lever grease. Bribes, payoffs, rewards, and just plain buying of votes.

        BBJ,
        Like I said to a poster above , When your taxes go up because the Bush tax cuts for the rich expire don’t b!tch!!!!

  • Howard R Gray

    Is the idea that the government’s only purpose is to create handouts for the unemployed? Voting out the Republicans might get you what you want in the short term, more of other people’s money in your pocket. That in itself is tolerable during times of economic stress but as a long term strategy is will bring down the golden goose. Entitlement mentality is fine for those who assume that the nation can afford it. The problem is way more basic than that.

    Hyperinflation is a very real possibility given that this government has spent more than all the governments back to George Washington. You might feel angry with the Republicans for blocking unemployment until it was properly funded, please remind yourself Regina, the Republicans want the money properly provided for in the budget not just added to the national debt. By all means go ahead and ask the Democrats to give you “your” money. The fact you pay taxes and probably advance the idea that other should pay even more taxes is fine. There are consequences to all this, here are two.

    If you tax the richer members of society you tax poor people’s jobs, it really is that simple. No job created by the government is a real job; the wealth absorbed is often at the cost of two or more jobs elsewhere in the economy. Taxing the richer folks will get you revenue but it will cost the nation, or the state, other jobs that would be paying taxes in the economy. There is always a knock on effect of taxation, and it is never good. Left wing economists still advance the idea that government jobs are real though this is somewhat of a stretch at its best. One has to wonder why government employees are taxed at all? The whole bogus process of levying tax on state or fed employees is a ruse to create the illusion that they pay tax, they don’t. It would be more honest to pay them the tax free and save the costs of accounting and bookkeeping.

    The other point is about hyperinflation, while you might get your benefits this year, you may find the dollar goes out of business with the highly inflationary policies of the government, as is likely the case for this government. Most of you who read this have never experienced hyperinflation. I have. My grandfather lived in Zimbabwe, when he passed on he left my mother his estate. At the time the money was embargoed from being repatriated or used outside Zimbabwe. Later the President Mr. Mugabe conducted a highly inflationary policy of money creation out of nothing (not unlike this, and previous governments, here in the US) the result was runaway inflation. I inherited from my mother the blocked accounts at about $50,000.00 US, after the hyperinflation the bank couldn’t afford to send me the quarterly statements as the money vanished to $0.00 dollars this took about 3 years. You can ignore this or not. Be that as it may, just be aware that unfunded runaway debt may be a deliberate policy to avoid payment of debts, if that is the case, you will find your nation has no money. Hyperinflation can happen I know from personal experience I hope you never have to experience it.

    I am glad I live in the US and not Zimbabwe, beautiful though that country is, I just hope that all the debts and entitlements that you seek don’t bury us all in the consequences of a policy objective to create a welfare state beyond the nation’s pocket book.

    • blamesomeoneelse

      Good post! Howard
      I wonder how in the world these democrates think taxing the rich and business will not hurt the middle and poor class. The rich just make more money on the back of the middle class and business just pass the taxes to the consumers. Prices go up and guess what, poor are poorer and middle class become the poor class. In europe they have the vat, which works well for them, they have 10% unemployment normally and fund them with the vat. everytime the unions go on strike get more pay the vat goes up and the union ends up with less value money and the government can give the non working more because they collect more with the vat, great tool, dont ya think. We need that here?

  • Dave Gross

    Bush was the worst president ever and you republicans need to get your head out of the sand and wake up. Alll the two faced republicans that want smaller government and less waste should cut out all their handouts they like. No more farm aid for all the rich republican farmers, do not expect fema to be their to bail you out when you have a disaster. No republicans should accept unemployment compensation since that costs too much money. When the money is being handed out republicans are right in the line too.

      He is trying to do what is best for the country instead of what is best for big industry and Wall street in particular. If republicans regain control, you ain’t seen nothing yet, more deregulation and more emptying the treasury into the pockets of the rich. They do not care if they bankrupt this country – they already have billions diversified around the world!.

        obama is half Black and half White.

        obama is Pro-Muslim. He hired two devout Muslims to work for Homeland Security and bowed to their leader and enjoyed viewing their mosques… great. He vowed to close Gitmo and they gave the Muslim Terrorists meranda rights.

        obama is a Black Liberation Theologist. They believe in order to have “collective salvation” you must TAKE from the “oppressor” (Jews, Whites, Christians) and GIVE to the “oppressed” (Blacks)… that is a Godless, Marxist, redistibution of wealth scheme.

        obama dilikes Jews and Christians. You can see this in his policies. He is NOT standing with Israel and was rude to their leader. He views Christians to be TERRORISTS.

        obama is opposed to the Tea Parties who are mostly made up of Patriotic Americans who are Constitutional Conservatives and who want SMALLER GOVERNMENT, SPENDING CUTS, LESS TAXES, LESS REGULATION so small businesses can thrive and hire. HE views them as TERRORISTS.

        obama opposes the American Veteran. HE views them as TERRORISTS.

        obama hates the Republicans, because they do not support his Marxist policies. He constantly spews his disapproval of them in public speeches.

        obama hates the 1st Amendment that gives us FREE SPEECH. FOX is a thorn in his side and he wishes to get rid of them because they constantly expose his tactics. He tried to omit them from reporting from DC. He also wishes to CONTROL THE INTERNET and is about to complete passing the DISCLOSE ACT which will not allow some groups to voice their opinion for or against leaders or candidates in America.

        obama hates the 2nd Amendment that gives us the Right to bare arms so that when the time comes (I said when not if) we can defend ourselves from a Trannical goverment. He, Hillary, and congress are vigorously trying to take away that Right. See the “SMALL ARMS TREATY.”

        Finally, obama and michelle hate America, The Consitution of the United States of America and our Free Market/ Free Enterprise System.
        He would not wear a flag pin or cover his heart when the pledge was said. He says the Constitution is a list of Don’ts (YES, DON’T OVER STEP YOUR LIMITED POWER MR. O.) He has forced Job killing bills like cap& tax, obamacare, the financial reform that are loaded with loss of liberties. Yes, he has set out to destroy our Economy with his CRISISES, POLICIES and DEBT.

        With that said, I think he should have run for office in another country or preferable not at all. He is definately NOT suited to our American beliefs. His Chicago Style Thug tactics, lies, and racist vitriol is dividing our great nation. He has NO IDEA how to be a STATESMAN. He is a deceiver. He has NO HOPE for us, but plenty of EVIL Change.

        Our only HOPE is in Jesus.

    Where is the money coming from to extend unemployment compensation to the unemployed? This disturbs me, greatly. How long will the Government continue to borrow money to pay for unemployment? My own son was laid off from General Manager position and even he is wondering how the Government can continue to fork over money they don’t have. If unemployment stops, the unemployed will be forced to take flipping burgers. Is that so bad? It would be a job that the illegals could not have. Perhaps this is Obama’s plan to keep unemployment going so his illegals can have the jobs.?? Flipping burgers may not pay the bills and certainly they will be forced to take Obama health care or go to jail. If I had to go to jail, I would request the one in Chicago, Obama helped to create, that looks like Hilton Hotel. Looks pretty snazzy to me. Three hots and a real bed and recreation. Better than some unemployed are getting. Of course, some of the unemployed can get Government jobs. Did you see the long list of created offices for the Obama health care? Obama must stop spending money that is throwing the United States into complete financial ruin. He once said that America is the best country on earth and he was going to make changes. RED FLAG here. Did not anyone get the message?

    Come November, Vote out every Republican and Democrat House Member. REplace them with competent Republicans and Democrats and get rid of the vast imbalance in Congress. We must do our homework and look at track records. Term limits need to be inacted, also. Plus, no more pay raises for Congress without consent of the American Citizens. We do pay their wages. They have robbed Peter to pay Paul long enough. AND, come 2012, Out with Obama. Just get rid of Socialism!!

    • J.Michael

      OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! I agree they all have to go,but who will replace them? I don’t see anyone here jumping up to the plate, just a bunch of pissin’ and moanin’.

The Democrats gave Dumbo Dubya a budget surplus and he BLEW it. Yeah,the dorks screwed-up the health issue, that’s a mess. But,can you stop the corporate greed of the insurance companies,all corporate and Wallstreet greed,people living longer doesn’t fit their business plan,so stop smoking,drinking,and get a work-out routine,and what about the Doctors ripping-off medicare. I agree term limits would be a good idea,what about making gerrymandering illegal and I definately agree the politicians should not be able to give themselves anything without the consent of the people.

    My opinion, President Bush, showed signs of being a Patriot.There was, too much spending, yes. Obama, shows no signs of being a Patriot and no concern for all the monies he is spending left and left…none of it right!!! The man has an aggenda….bring America to it’s knees financially! He has to do this…that is why he was placed in the office at this opportune time. The man knows exactly what he is doing , and so do those behind the scene! Basicly he is a puppet of men who hold the power. They just met in England this week-end, the Bilderbergs.I am sure they are getting nervous about the Patriot Movement, August 29th, and November 02, 2010. There is a battle between Good and Evil at it’s head right now. This was no ordinary election…..We have no TRUTH in the White House! They have turned out the LIGHT on the Constitution! The WAY we are heading is toward Economic, Political, and Moral disaster. Obama is trying as hard as he can to help get all of us there as fast as he can ! What he can not spend with his Big Bills (Stimulus, Take overs, Socializing our Health Care, Bale-outs, Financial Bill, etc. he nickles and dimes us there with all the vacations, entertainment, travel, etc. The man shows NO compassion towards the economically deprived among us..( Oh, you say he fought for the extension of UNEMPLOYMENT, this will keep his aggenda going, more monies spent that WE DO NOT HAVE ) the numbers of which will continue to grow…WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS AND THE PATRIOTIC DEMOCRATES…why are they not shouting, ” THIS IS ENOUGHT “. BEFORE IT IS ,TOO LATE.

  • az wayne

    When will most of you wake up? The workers cannot support and fund the system. Government employees out number private workers, who pays government workers? How many of you can support yourselves and 2 neighbors? Public education is dismal. There is an end coming because even though government prints money they can’t create money. We cannot survive this dictatorship. 80 open socialist members in congress including pelosi and we wonder where they’re headed. Show me on socialist country that has survived, you better wake up.

    • 45caliber

      Approximately 53% of all “workers” are employed by the government – either federal, state, local, or schools. If you count in the number now on welfare, retired, or unemployed, it runs the number up closer to 70%.

      And the rest of us have to support them through taxes – all taxes, not just income tax.

      Everyone in government knows that ANY tax ends up charged to the individual worker. But it sounds better to say “business tax”. The actual tax is paid by each customer – not by the business as such.

      So pat yourselves on the back if you are one of the workers who are NOT employed by the government. You are supporting your own family AND about two more families. You just didn’t realize it.

  • possum

    Very thoughtful piece.

  • Bruce

    Folks, Let me be very clear so no one confuses the point.
    We Have little to no manufacturing jobs left. We have no new job growth now for well over 20 months, we have little to no one traveling here and spending money.
    We have no growth other than Government and Unions.
    Where do they get money from?

    From people who run non Government business’s and the people who work for them. Gibson Guitars is about to fall, I know to many of you that means nothing at all. But it really does mean something, its an old American Icon of a business as well as an Icon Guitar known world wide for what they are, the BEST.
    Now whats all that mean to you, its simple if a company such as Gibson falls not only will a few thousand people be out of work, but these guitars will be made in a differant country say China, where cost are cheep for labor there are NO UNIONS.
    Thus Americans who buy a new Gibson will be paying Chinese workers to make them, the quality will drop as with most Chinese products. The Icon will be dead.

    This is on a micro scale but the facts are that as each American Business falls, more will be “UN Employed,” as the numbers keep going up who’s going to be paying for these people who collect UEI?

    Sure looks like maddness to me but hey I just run a small business and have done so for 40 years, and yes there are ups and downs, even the 1987 crash was felt for about 20 months, but whats going on now will keep going on for decades until the end comes and its not going to be a good end. But hey why take the word of someone on the front lines, go watch NBC and find out what the candy coated BS is of the day.
    Folks we are on a head on with a large wall of steel and we are all in a VW BUG, the wall is 20 trillion feet high and 20 trillion feet deep. What impact will that bug have?

    Oh and National UE #’s are based on a curb, that means that the highest and lowest numbers are thrown out, then based on the middle numbers they derive a number. So in fact the real UE #’s are more in line with 22% as of today. Underemployed is at about 30%.

    This is at best, a really bad band aid fix, one with very little sticking power, think of it as you have an artery thats bleeding out and someone wraps it with an old dirty shirt.

    • 45caliber

      You are quite correct as to the unemployment numbers the government keeps quoting. They also “assume” that anyone who drops off unemployment – even if they do so because they can no longer draw it – is employed now and don’t count them. Also welfare people are generally not counted as unemployed at times like this since they KNOW that most of these people wouldn’t accept a job if you offered it to them. All those factors bring down the unemployment numbers to make the country look in better shape than it really is – and it is done under all administrations.

    • J.Michael

      Remember Harley-Davison? At least Forbes brought that back. Where are more people like that? The Unions have become as corrupt as the government,it might have been a good idea,as a foil against corrupt business practices,but unfortunately it didn’t workout. Don’t forget corporate greed and Wallstreet. But hey,you can pollute the environment,pay slave-wages and skirt safety requirements in China. Bye-bye manufacturing.

      Great piece Bruce.

      I’m so sick of the government and all of the media saying we only have 9.7% unemployment. They have been using this figure for over a year and still thousands and sometimes hundreds of thousands file for unemployment each month. There have been little statements here and there on FOX that there is really 11%, 14% or even 20% in some states, but they… gov or media… won’t do a national average.

      The American citizens WOULD BE OUTRAGED IF THEY KNEW THE TRUTH of how high it really is.

      I think the Conservative candidates for 2010 should do a REAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE figure to WAKE UP the People!!!!!!!!!!

Giving his staff those big raises while this state is destitute.
            Nope, I won’t vote for any of the politicians that are running here in Illinois. I don’t know what I will do. I guess not vote. I know quite a few people that are not going to vote.

    As a person who definately needed an unemployment check several times, I feel for the people who need the money. On the other hand, I can understand the need for a cut-off. I saw one woman laid off who bragged about getting a job and then getting fired so she could stay at home and draw the pay. People like her eat up much of that money. Luckily for my company, she was refused unemployment because of theft so she didn’t get her extended vacation from us.

    • Claire

      45caliber—Each state needs to clean up their welfare system. The welfare system is way past due for an overhaul. Look at all the years that the welfare system threw the money out the window. A program is only as good as its operators, obviously none of them were doing their jobs. Disgusting.

  • JJ

    People that want more without a way to pay for it are as greedy as the people they complain about. Sure you may need money even for food but will you take it from the mouth of another? Putting all this debt on your kids is as low as anyone can stoop to. Those of you that think you need it worse than them are the low life’s of our time all you care about is yourself. It makes you worse than those you complain about.

    There is a lot of jobs out there. It may not be playing on a computor or in the 8-5 work day, but there are plenty of jobs. The college degreed jobs a tight because most of the eleitist pin heads cann’t do a damn thing productive, but shuffle papers or will not get their fingers dirty. Shut the welfare shit down now. There is a shortage of all phases of mechanics, car, truck. heavy equipment, or even electrical (home and industerial), there are companies that are hiring, paying the people to learn to be a journeyman qualified electrictian. The simple minded jackasses, that think you need a degree, is crap. USA is productive because of people who do more than only one thing, and the union has crippled this country. When I see posts of sorry, lazy assed, idoits complaining cann’t find work, get the hell out of where you a sitting. In the late 70′s and until 81, I had to travel to different states, and do many different jobs, to keep my family in food,clothes, and shelter. The idea it isn’t what I like, or want, or is in my time frame for work I want. Get off your fat lazy ass and go mow lawns if nothing else, or work for Salvastion Army. Most have the union BS attitude of I want pay and will screw off and get paid. If you smucks are going to live off of taxpayers over six months, on welfare or unemployment, neutoring is mandatory. The unemployment and welfare program givemees are just a game. The muslim marxist pinhead and his smuck socialist democrats are all a bunch of one job idoits, never have done a damn thing except go to school, colleges, and have lived off of taxpayers hardearned money. I cann’t wait to see the posts, of all the Onumnutted worshippers and marxist democrat idoits responses.

    What if unemployment pay ended? Would people learn to make money by starting a business? Would they use their time and effort to grow this country? Would we develop new ideas and sell to other countries? What a bad idea, we need to pay them to wait for another country to bring their business here and hire them. Yes then we can be a true 3rd world country. Thanks democrats and Obama for this future, they are doing the best they can!

    One thing the unemployeed can do, is take some of these feely meely money wasting parks and plant a garden, look at all the wasted crap parks in citys or government land, that is doing nothing. but costing billions to maintain. Oh I forgot it is peaceful and Bambi and crap forage and fowl a growing there. Maybe 5% of the population might see it for real or ever travel there.. It cost city residents plenty of funds for this feel good crap. Turn parks in to gardens and grow fruit trees, first gang banging jackass to destroy it, get 5 years breaking rocks for street projects with a sledge, the bastards would go to sleep at night and not be causing trouble, selling drugs and destroying building. The first ACLU or bleeding heart pup to complain about how abusive hard work for the criminals, can foot the bill for repiration expenses. If the bastard gang bangers think they are extra tough, put them in boot camp for a 4 year stint, to teach proper behavior and how to speak English, screw upany time, just keep adding years. Might make some honest citizens, out of this garabage group, in stead of more welfare rats,and crimminals. Also in would save on jail space and what they make, at $20 a day will pay back their damages to sociaty. The garden waste can feed hogs, for more potein and if the pedophile muslims need a job, pigs will not have a problem with their sweaty smell. Put a few spangles on the sows, and muslim men probably will want to marry them for another wife, and all democrats would like hogs, since they can be lead with a bucket of free feed to slaughter. I guess now with Sheets Byrd’s replacement voting lock step, marxist Omoron and the communist democrats will move to a October surprise of a executive order of a dictatorship.

  • mavis

    I wonder how many of the people on Unemployment have been on it since day one? Two point five million unemployed and Obama says he is proud of his economic
    policy. I would say he wanted the unempolyment extended so his conscience would not hurt him,but,as you know he has no conscience. The only thing that hurts him is if his constuients dare to disagree with him.For some reason I keep seeing Hugo Chaves with his book in his hand walking up to Obama and handing it to him. Does anyone know the name of the book and what it’s contents are? It seems that Obama is following Chaves pretty closely. Obama will go down as the worst president we have ever elected. Long live the America that we know and
    down with the president we don’t know. IN GOD WE TRUST,

  • thinking about

    Your article should have read Congress passed the unemployment extension, there are rules about who gets unemployment benefits and it is those who have worked in the past. Our jobs has been out sourced to other nations, guess who those workers pays taxes to, not to USA. Doesn’t take a very smart person to figure we send the money to other countries and we have less taxes for our use.

I know my town needs roads fixed, but with this stupid democratic mayor, he takes care of the ultra wealthy first. Their roads are always taken care of, especially in winter. They get plowed out first, the rest of us have to wait. Gosh, When I moved to this subdivision 33 years ago, it was one of the best here. Now we are middle-class? Probably lower class now with the economy the way it is. I cannot believe some of the homes built west of town– like a dream world.

            No Claire you have it right, they did no good and we borrowed over a trillion dollars to pay for them while fighting a war by borrowing for that too, fist war in history where we had both tax cuts and fought a war at the same time. Yes for twenty years nothing has been done to keep our corporations from exporting our jobs as a cost cutting measure creating huge profits and for a few extra large wages. It always amazes me but on this site they want you to believe everything was honkey dorey until Obama took office when we have been gradually going backwards for thirty years increasing greatly the poor and under employed due to inadequate wages so when the reformed welfare in the ninety’s they made numerous increase to welfare programs but did not call them welfare programs like earned income credit, child care subsidy, medicaid programs and on and on so we are now in effect subsidizing at a high cost wages and benefits, while before that welfare was not for the employed today most who receive these benefits are employed and the corporations are making big bucks even in the recession. Who ever would have taken office in Jan 2009 would have found himself up to his neck in this garbage that we legislated into being over the past thirty years most of it in the y in the last 15.

          Claire – yes. You and I both seem to find that a common response to this sort of thing. Hope all is well and good with you -

            libertytrain–We are fine. Hope you and yours are doing great. Hotter than hades here. 106 degree heat index. The humidity is stifling. Can’t let the dogs stay out very long so I keep them busy chewing on their knuckle bones and kongs with peanut butter in them. Hope the weather breaks and it will get pleasant. Dogs need exercise, guess I’ll have to buy a jog-a-dog.

    Listen to the Lies of President Obama! He stated that the Republicans do not want to extend workman’s unemployment compensation because they have no feelings for the people and the poor. Bull! The Republicans merely want Obama to come up with the money he has been holding back and not borrow more from China to pay the billions it will cost. Obama, of course, wants to borrow the money and lead us on to further debt and economic ruin. Obama comes from a history as a social worker. What does that mean? It means that there are those people who need help due to forces beyond there control and there are also those people who are professional leaches on society. I feel it is the duty of all American citizens to lend a helping hand to other American citizens who need help, and to bring them back to the point where they can stand on their own to feet and then help other American citizens. Obama, on the other hand, emphasizes the cradle to grave aspect of support, wherein the professional leaches live off the labor of others as they are entitled to the good life, without working for it nor aiding their fellow citizens. So just borrow the money and let the working people of this Nation pay it back along with the interest. This is not a racial approach, but it crosses racial lines to cover all professional leaches, of every color, gender, and kind. Remember the working people of this Nation are of numerous races, nationalities, and clasifications. The workers and their children will get the bills. Obam just spends!

      Boy are you mixed up, Obama can only spend the money congress gives him and they have to appropriate it for a specific reason which they have done and he can only spend it for that, the republicans wanted to rewrite the tarp law so he could pay for unemployment out of it and they did not and he only got the bill he got and had to either sign it or veto it, so it was unemployment this way or no way and he chose to sign it. Obama does not have the authority to use other monies for unemployment as you suggest. The republicans only came up with this suggestion but nothing else so it appears this was for political purposes only. All Tarp dollars payed back to the government must be used to reduce the national debt that is the law that Bush signed in 08.
