Pelosi: Republican Inaction on Unemployment Extension ‘Immoral’

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called House Republicans’ refusal to allow a vote on extending unemployment benefits “unconscionable” and “immoral.”

In a letter thanking Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, a Democrat, for their support on the issue, Pelosi, D-Calif., urged the House to take action on a bill that passed the Senate last week.

“It is unconscionable that the House has not acted to renew emergency unemployment insurance,” she wrote. “Never before has Congress allowed emergency unemployment insurance to expire while long-term unemployment rates have remained so high.”

“House Republicans’ refusal to extend emergency unemployment insurance is callous, shortsighted and immoral,” she wrote.

Chafee and Sandoval, governors of the two states with the highest unemployment rates, sent a letter Wednesday urging Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio to take up the bill.

Some House Republicans have urged Boehner to add jobs-related measures to an extension and send it back to the Senate. But Boehner has said he’s waiting to hear an offer from the White House on jobs proposal before he will consider an extension.

The White House has yet to respond.

    Looks like Obama is throwing the unemployed under the bus. he’s going GOP on you slackers. His speech in FLA was full of job skills lacking and job retraining. finally,he is seeing the light. No more free lunches. You will not recognize EUC come April 28th. Back to the Senate it goes. The unemployed are finally going to have to sing for their suppers.

        • Seth

          It’s not Obamacare, it’s the affordable care act, and it was written by the republican candidate for president in 2012. You have failed again when even trying to make the slightest of points. You can’t help yourself but fail all day long without moving along.

      • K.D.

        Hey..I didn’t create this mess. I just report on it. Obama is sweeping yer dead a!! under the rug

        • cocerned

          You are a sick person

        • Seth

          No he isn’t. You aren’t reporting anything. You are being what we all are referring to as a common troll. You are exactly the same as every other troll, you do the exact same things and use the same tactics to make yourself feel better, all while failing and finding it ever so hard to move along when you realize you can’t win and aren’t causing anyone a problem, while making yourself look stupider and stupider.

    • luis araud

      You are a p.o.s “the unemployed sing for their suppers” only idotic people such as yourself would make comments like that. You have no right to condem anybody because of this situation I’m tired of jerkoffs calling this a gravy train these people have worked all there life and for someone to come along and call them moochers and lazy is ridiculous. We need to be considerate of what all these people are going thru

    • Kate

      Does it give you a sense of power to belittle others and make them feel badly about whatever their going thru. Shame on you. This could happen to you or someone you love. Lose a job due to illness or any such catastrophe. It happens. It’s best to support others. Yes even people you don’t know. How sad for you.

          You’re a stupid lying troll. You can change your name asyou like it doesn’t change the fact who you are troll.

        • Seth

          He wasn’t claiming it was, for some, you frustrate, and you find it a good feeling to make people feel frustrated and htis is why you have no one and nothing in your life,and why you never will. You are incapable of being anything but someone who causes ill will and hatred towards others. A true sociopath.

    • Seth

      No, it doesn’t look like that. You are simply incorrect and so the rest of your paragraph is an irrelevant waste of time. You haven’t moved along yet, and still are offering no true insight. Nothing but ill will still. We are paying attention.

  • Larry king

    Boehner keeps running out of excuses. Now he has to blame it on the president. Its pretty sad that Boehner holds the unemployed hostage to use as leverage to get what he wants. I can’t wait until November so we can get rid of him. He is anti-American.

    • K.D.

      Sorry. This is all on the Demos. EUC could have been in the uncontested budget months ago. Why didn’t reid do so??

      • Larry king

        I have never voted for anyone other than a republican for the last 30 years. Unless you are just plain stupid, it is obvious who is holding this up RIGHT NOW. That would be the REPUBLICANS! And yes I do need this extension, however, at this point it is more important just to vote Boehner and the rest of the republicans out of office. They have made it clear that they only care about bills that give tax breaks to the rich. I have never been so disgusted in my life. How could we ever allow a man like Boenher to have this much power? Get rid of him!!!

        • K.D.

          Getting rid of Boehner won’t help you. The new boss is just like the old. You need to help yourself. The gravy train is POLITICALLY over. My friends who own small businesses keep seeing their unemployment insurance premiums SKYROCKET paying for the debt EUC is piling on the States. EUC is not free!…its killing small business growth and development. You obviously spend too much time posting and posting…spend more time looking for work or starting your own small business…freaking contribute!!..

          • Larry king

            I have found a new job so you can’t throw that crap on me. I saw how quick you were to jump on the comments, got someone paying you to do it? And George Bush (who I voted for), started the EUC. Were you complaining then? How do you justify sending money to Urkraine but not taking care of your own? How do you justify spending the billions on the wars in Iraq and Afgahnistan? Or the lives lost over there? Was it worth it? They still hate us and wish we were all dead.

          • K.D.

            talk to Obama about all that. Talk to Reid about all that. What you are talking about is ALL ON THE DEMOS!! It all has crossed Reids/Obamas desk without a whisper. YOU had your chance when the budget was uncontested MONTHS ago..reid had his chance. The same people you are turning to are failing you..STOP POSTING AND GO OUTSIDE AND ASK FOR WORK

          • K.D.

            Whoops!! you said you have found a job?? All the posts I see in your history are done on company time?? I’d write your dead lazy butt up.

          • Larry king

            I start next week! And what is your excuse?

          • K.D.

            then??..we won’t hear from you anymore??..promise??

          • Larry king

            Are you kidding me? You don’t just forget about it when something like this happens to you. My voice will continue to be very loud. I am not going away. I have lost almost everything of any value over the last 4 months. And I blame the republicans! I am going to do my part to make sure we get rid of Boehner and the rest of them.

          • K.D.

            You voted against Obama and the Demos the last 2 elections??…you said you voted GOP the last 30 years??..now??.you’ve been begging for their help??…I guess its true..everyone finds religion in a foxhole. Get bent, loser

          • Larry king

            You don’t even make sense. This issue forced me to take a closer look at our government. Today’s republican party is as corrupt as can be. They are all bought off by the 1%. Maybe not all, Dean Heller still wants to be a man of the people. We are not stupid! Anyone who wants to learn more about how the politicians are bought off should watch, ” Inequality for us all” on Netflix. It will show you what the republican party and the 1% are doing to this country.

          • K.D.

            You said in an earlier post above, you voted Rep the last 30 years. That means you voted against Obama.

          • Larry king

            Yes, that is correct!!!! I voted for Romney. But never again will I vote republican

          • Ms Kay

            These past elections have been the lessor of evils. Who can blame…. The one’s who don’t care are the one’s who aren’t affected by the UI Extension. They have their jobs, their homes, multiple cars, can go shopping and buy whatever they want.

          • Kem H H

            Yes, I agree Kay. These people will never consider that people are going to be homeless, while another billion goes to some Bush war. And another thing, rich right wingers like to cry about the lazy unemployed (Rush Limbaugh) not wanting to work, yet in the same breath they cry about high unemployment and and no job creation, thanks to Obama policy. Which is it Rush? Enjoy that Maybach 57 and your Gu

          • Cheryl Thomas

            WE will never have the money they have and that is why they do not care about us, but they care how we vote and they could change that but they won’t.

          • Ms Kay

            Not voting Republican either! The Repubs who are acting like they care about the UI Extension are just doing some CYA to insure their job status.

          • Larry king

            Like I said, it took this issue to force me into taking a closer look. I am not afraid to admit that I voted republican. I was wrong and should have educated myself more on politics. I don’t think it was ever as bad as it is today. I am not even saying that I agree with the Dems on every issue. I really think its time for an independent to come into office. I’m sick of these 2 parties playing games with us.

          • Seth

            No it doesn’t.

          • Robert Leonard

            You and larry should really stop posting. Remember this virtue; sometimes its best to remain silent and thought the fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

          • Larry king

            I only speak what I see as the truth. And I am not afraid to admit when I am wrong. I was a republican voter for 30 years. It has taken this issue that affected me to take a closer look at our government. I never realized the greed and heartlessness of the republican party. I will never vote for another republican again.

          • Seth

            That doesn’t make any sense and it seems like you’ve found another one of your accounts to argue with.

          • Ms Kay

          • Larry king

            Yesterday the person who was making the comments and arguing with me had user name, “K.D.”. Now today it has changed to “VinnyfromIndy”. He sure goes to a lot of trouble to harass the unemployed.

          • Guest

            Mr. King you are absolutely right I am the real KD, This fruit Sebastian Klay stole my user name and went on this rampage of insults. Now because Vinny agreed with me about his MO, He has changed his profile user name to Vinny. If you have read any of the real Vinnys’ blogs recently you would know it’s not him. Don’t let this poser fool you people!

          • John

            You are wrong. You have no facts. You are a liar. You are the bully. You have no military career. You use people lying about being in the military. Disgusting. Disgraceful You use bullying words for all to see. Truthe shall be disappointed. You are the troll you rail against.

          • Seth

            Along with the other reply you’ve copied and pasted 17 times, this one has been copied and pasted 7 times. In case it gets deleted, the comment above at this moment is written by “John” and reads:

            You are wrong. You have no facts. You are a liar. You are the bully. You have no military career. You use people lying about being in the military. Disgusting. Disgraceful You use bullying words for all to see. Truthe shall be disappointed. You are the troll you rail against.

            Now, what will happen is the troll above this comment will change his name to mine, which is Mark at the moment, in an attempt to make it look like tihs account is arguing with itself. He is doing this with Guest, and many other accounts. Just read all of his responses because underneat them you will find me, exposing the troll for what it is until it moves along in its life.

          • Ms Kay

            Guest, go get a job !

            He should be ashamed of him self unfortunately we have those type of people in this world

          • Mark

            Then when two question marks isn’t a sentence, or a question. As long as you are trolling, you will be responded to and made to realize that your sociopathic behavior is eroding your mind away and pushing you further into incoherent ignorance. You must attempt to save yourself by moving along.

          • Ms Kay

            John is part of the Unemployment Police….. making sure people go out and get jobs evidently…. What is John’s excuse…

          • Mark

            You are apart of the account structure in which you think you are clever and are just another uncovered nonesense reply we’ve identifed from your first response. You must must must really try to move along.

          • Ms Kay

            Mr. Chubaka, you make no sense. Probably have some fat job where you sit with your feet up, eating your twinkies… nothing better to do but put your B.S. Opinion out there because you have not friends or life.

          • Mark

            “Whoops” was not stated in the correct context. You do not know if he found a job or not. You do not know anything about his posts or anything about any company they were posted under. You wouldn’t write anyone up because you will never have that authority. You will only have the authority here to troll replies to your own accounts and to eventually move along.

          • Larry king

            The problem here is that the republicans hate Obama so much that they will do anything to stand in the way, especially with Obamacare. They don’t care if they are hurting millions of Americans. They can’t help themselves, even when it is destroying the republican party. I am not the only EX-republican out there. There are millions of us. There is going to be some big surprises in November.

          • K.D.

            and you speak for all Republicans?? do you know how silly you sound?

            Did I say all republicans? I said there are millions of republicans, (like me), that are going to change their vote this year because they are disgusted with the republican party. I personally will never vote republican again!

            I am now an independent, although a lifetime Republican. However, there is no way in hell I would vote for a Dumbocrat. It will be a true conservative, not an idiot liberal-progressive like the POS we have in the White House that has enabled the unemployment travesty we’re now dealing with. There is stupidity, and cronyism on both sides. That’s the true issue.

            No one is your buddy. You were not reading anyones past posts, since the person you are referring to is yourself. We’ve already established this so any of the words in ther est of your response are quite litereally you arguiing with yourself. A true sociopath with time.

            And just for your information EUC is federal so it doesn’t pile debt on to the state because if it were a state issue then the governers of the state that are asking boehner to take up the legislation would be able to activate it themselves

          • K.D.

            Sorry….EUC is requested by the States’ Governors from the Dept of Labor. The funds are issued to the States in the form of a loan. This has been the process for DECADES….EUC is NOT new..its been on the books for DECADES. You really ,really need to educate yourself…while you are at it fool…read up on the 3 different types od legislation..authorizing, appropriations and entitlement. EDUCATE yourself…you obviously missed the first chance in high school civics class.

            There is no need for you to apologize for being incorrect. EUC is not requested by the states Governors, and you have nothing to cite that false information from. The Department of Labor handles it while the states use there infrastrucutre. You are incorrect again. The funds are not issued as a load to the states. Incorrect again. This has not been the process for decades, as EUC is 6 years old. You are incorrect again. EUC is relatively new, compared to your incorrect perception of when it started. It has not been on the books for decades. We really really really already have educated ourselves. Maybe if you put another “really” in there, it will make you feel better since oyur troll isn’t doing so well so far. You can not call someone a fool and then say while you are at it, they obviously will not be listening to someone who is so rude for no reason. There are more than three types of legislation. You are incorrect again. We have educated ourselves, hence our replies to your trolls. Incorrect again. We obviously missed nothing in High School, not even the bullies who never make sense and fail at making points. Like you. You still haven’t…. wait..

I think our economy would be doing much better if we gave the money to the Unemployed vs Ukraine K.D. By the way I have a good paying job so this is an unbiased comment.

          • Robert Leonard

            Get your facts straight Vinny. EUC is not paid for through Business Insurance Premiums. EUC is strictly a fedrally funded program. haven’t you been following the long and arduous journey this Bill has taken? Let me educate you if possible; this legislation is offset with pension smoothing, an extension of the customer user fee, and the repayment of flat-rate premiums to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. period. Now you may ask “what is Pension Smoothing?”, well Vincenzo that is smoothing you will have to find out for yourself…freaking educate yourself!!!

            Hey, I would love to start my own business. But there is one thing that kills all startups faster than a speeding bullet, and that is start up capital. I had my Fed tax I.D.,state license paid for, and county vendor code ready to go. But due to state regulation, that doesn’t even seem logical, I could not start due to other expenses the state wanted me to incur. I applied for bank loan, and was denied, probably because I live debt free. No loans after gov bailed them out. Just perfect! Anyone want to finance me? I feel for small business, too much goverment nonsense involed with tryin to get off the ground. But I agree with other posters, the UI needs extended. Now.

            We need the money that taken away. Extensions are being paid for by everyone. As for the unemployed we are due some money and then we can pay our bills. Some of us live in house where someone else has a job to pay the internet bill to post and also to look for jobs we have no money to get to.
            By the way are you hiring, I can fax you my resume. Now I call that helping myself. You will say “no” it’s okay I have trying to get a job since I loss my old one. The problem with people today is you would rather believe that people don’t want something instead of realizing that the others don’t want you to have either.

    What is truly immoral is what Pelosi, Obama, Reid, and Holder are doing to us. They do nothing to build the economic engines of this country but are content to make dependent serfs collecting meager benefits which make us literal wards of the State. They stifle job growth with a myriad of regulations and taxes while one out of every adult in the USA is unemployed. They kill good paying jobs so we will be thankful for unemployment benefits or higher minimum wages and then expect us to show our stupidity by voting for them in gratitude for making us serfs. Pelosi is a phony only interested in her own wealth and power.

    dear kd, I don’t think you have no clue about unemployment, you think the unemployed are enjoying making 350 dollar and less a week ,while some of us used to make ten times that money, sitting doing nothing waiting until the benefits extension stops, if this is what you think, boy you are wrong, the money that we collect is just chomp change, it ‘s only a life line, you cut it people will have no other means and one more thing, people who vote Republican start realizing what the party is for now that is why people lost trust in it. The party is about the Rich corporates making as much money as they can on the price of the poor. The party tries to hide under its love for the country but in reality all they love is MONEY.

    • K.D.

      this isn’t abut enjoyment. however loosely and rhetorically you may use that word. Its about what’s good for the future of our country. Its time to stop EUC. The States are getting buried with the debt they have to repay with all these handouts. Make my word. When the next extension finally does pass, I bet less State’s governors request it than you can imagine. a la NC. The State’s Governors are realizing the albatross of debt they are incurring. EUC ain’t free!! Its not paid for!!

Once AUTHORIZED, the States’ Governors request the funds from the Dept of Labor which then LOANS the States the money. The States have to PAY BACk the loans. that is how it is PAID FOR.

    First they ( Republicans) have called us LAZY; then they rely on studies that show if UI ( unemployment insurance) is paid, that will not give incentives to work and finally that unless the Democrats agree on some wacky pipeline-they will be willing to vote for UI . The pipe line? What has that got to do with unemployment benefits for us taxpayers. We lost our jobs through no fault of our own-I used to receive a less than$300 a week-that was insufficient to pay my rent but it helped. I am talking to many Republicans to change their minds and vote Democrats. This party must never run the White House-they can happily give subsidies and $$$ to companies that cheated Americans ( Wall Street Banks) but cant help human beings-have we gone craxzY?

  • Gary

    Don’t the Republicans have some skin in this game e.g. their constituents? Did they not see the benefits running out in December? Yes they did and at that time they said ” Well we have been asking the Democrats-White House for a job plan and they haven’t produced anything”. Well Hell, what has kept the Republicans from creating a plan or plans? I promise it is not all Democrats that are on unemployment, I know, because I am one of the Republicans that are suffering. Now the Senator out of Michigan has come of with a way to ween us begging, looking for a hand out Americans off unemployment. Those were his words “ween” us off. He has proposed that for every week you receive your supplement and did not find a job it goes down 5% the next week and every week after until you find a job or are in the situation we are today, with no benefits. Does he think we are getting rich off the weekly supplement ($440.00 per week here in Texas, before Taxes) That didn’t even pay my bills when I was receiving my benefits. I was having to dip into my retirement then. Now it is completely gone. Whatever your thoughts are and what plan you might envision, it is too late for that now. Right now we need the vote on the floor, passed and extended ASAP.Once that is done, them maybe both parties can get together like big boys and girls, and maybe create a viable job plan that will put me, a 56 year old professional and everyone else that wants to back to work. So Boehner, get the gun away from the Democrats head, take us, the ammunition out of the gun, and act like you are an American.

  • Hereticzen

    Vote no confidence in Boehner! He refuses to do his job and to uphold the oath he took to this country. The man is more interested in making the wealthy rich at the expense not of 3.8 million unemployed. But rather the over 15 million family members of those workers. Its time told hold these jokers accountable. NO breaks until the schedule is clear. NO increased pay. NO vacations on taxpayers dime. NO filibusters on critical issues. NO year long debates on issues that need to be decided by deadline. This is not a philosophy class. This is not your home town City council race. lives, savings and property of those stable people that were destabilized due to YOUR inaction are the issue. YOU have not done your jobs. Its time to make partisan politics ILLEGAL. Special interest groups ILLEGAL and sending ANY money from this country’s tax coffers to ANY other country as long as we have kids not being educated, or fed, and families living on the street. If you feel the need to police the world, then its time the world starts paying for those services.

I heard that’ s agreat place for trivial questions instead of here, since this is a serious topic for millions. You people can be anyone depending on the context of the words spoken. One gets a dutch surname by having it in their family history. These are all question that can be answered if you had any common sense about where you were right now. See, this is rollcall, this isnt wikipedia or youtube. Maybe we can just sort of make you learn one post ata time. You know, what the internet is, where you should post, and things like that. You should take a class.

    Boehner’s callous disregard for those Americans unfortunate enough to be among the long-term unemployed is deplorable. The fact that he uses their suffering as a tool to advance his political agenda is immoral. Until today I had been infuriated by much of what I had read on this subject. Grateful thanks to K.D. for lightening my mood! Once again his buffoonery and dim-witted attempts to appear informed and articulate have left me convulsed with laughter and unable to bear a grudge.

  • K.D.

    To Everyone on this website. This idiot Sebastian Klay has stooped to the level of using my posted name KD to go on this rampage, most of you know of him. He’s posted under Sebastian Klay, David Flanagan, flycatcher and many more. His MO is to piss everyone and take our minds off the subject and put it on him. He’s been doing this for months and he gets some kind of sick pleasure out of it. So if you read any blog that’s on the unemployment issue that’s negative I can assure you it wasn’t my comment. I’m going to contact RollCall about this and make sure he can’t log in as KD.

    • flycatcher

      Wow!! you are completely obsessed with this Sebastian Klay and everyone else’s username. I encourage anyone to read the past posts between us and see who the bitter, angry person is. I have NO IDEA who you are and why you are harassing me. You hold yourself out as a 16 year military Veteran and a COMBAT veteran of Desert Storm. I asked you one simple question and you jump me like I’m all these freaking usernames you are obsessed with. GET OFF MY BACK!! One more time,, WAR HERO!! If you are a combat Vet, WHERE WERE YOUR DUTY STATIONS IN DESERT STORM?? I’m tired of people hijacking “veteran” status and using it to push their agenda. ANSWER THE QUESTION.

      • Guest

        If this is true, Where do you stand on the unemployment extension? I will never give out any more personal info on myself. I would suggest nobody else does. Poser trolls are ready to pounce.

        • John

          EUC doesn’t exist. You are wrong. Move along. You must repent. You have elicited false positives from innocent people thanking you for your false military career. You must either repent or name your combat duty stations. You are wrong and will be followed. Move along.

          • Mark

            EUC does exist. He is right and you are wrong. You wil move along, not him. He must not repent. He has not elicited false positives from innocent people thanking anyone for a false military carreer. He must not repent and must not name anyhting. You are wrong again and are now using 5 year old tacitcs of repating what someone says back to them since there is no response. Keep moving along.

    • flycatcher

      I’ve asked you to get off my back. I asked you one simple question and you jump me like I’m all these other usernames. Why are you so defensive to prove your ballyhoo-ed military background?? Quite frankly, I encourage all to read the past posts between us and they will see who really is the usernames you speak of. You are acting just like the characters you are railing against. Thus, YOU ARE ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE.

    If you
    think living on a check of 50% of your income is a vacation for lazy people
    think again. It’s living hell. We would much rather a job, but it seems that
    our college educated government didn’t think about “creating jobs”
    and job training BEFORE cutting the only income a person has to feed
    themselves. Where was the long term planning there????? Yes there is reform
    needed, but the right thing to do would have been put measures in place for the
    people on EUC to be PREPARED before you cut their benefits and they go hungry
    and lose their homes. If people on EUC should be required to have job training,
    Then so should Congress….training in long term planning so they don’t destroy
    anymore American’s lives. The time to start reforming isn’t 4 months AFTER you
    take away their life line. And then how long will it take to implement the
    reform and benefit these people ???? The biggest job of our government is to
    plan and budget LONG TERM for the people of this country and our government has
    failed at that. When Americans fail at their job, we get
    FIRED,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the government just shuts down and gets yet another
    vacation.

  • ogdiego

    Why don’t they just create a job for everyone and pay them a fair wage? At least there won’t be people sitting around worrying about UI benefits that are going to run out. Is that too simple a solution? Then if you don’t want to work, you are on your own.

    • erick

      Creating jobs for all Americans who want to work does not fit into the game plan. The financial class wants to reduce the American working class to the status of 3rd world peasants that will accept austerity and poverty. This is the class war in action.

    Left and Right wing need to get together in May, and start a NEW emergency unemployment, running from June to December, and not try to extend the old one.
    We need to help new people running out of benefits, with weekly stipends, not give a massive payment to people that missed their 27th week in December 2013.
    This way both left and right wing can have the EUC running during elections, and neither side can use it as a campaign issue.

  • erick

    Congress gave 50 billion dollars in tax breaks to corporations that outsource jobs overseas without consideration as how to pay for the revenue loss. But to pay 5 billion in federal extended unemployment benefits Boehner insists that it must be paid for by cutting other benefits. They increased the debt limit by 1.2 trillion dollars, and allocating a tiny fraction of that to fund benefits is not acceptable. Do they only intend to use that to bail out wall street banks derivative gambling side bets?

    The GOP is at war with Americans that are not millionaires and billionaires. The facts could not be clearer. IN just the past few months they have thrown the poor, veterans and the unemployed to the wolves. We are talking many tens of millions of Americans struggling simply to feed their families and have a roof over their heads being kicked to the curb by the GOP. It is immoral and it is “in your face” at this point.

    If any of you think that it could not get worse, simply contemplate these sociopaths in the GOP winning the elections in November.

    President Obama has to take the initiative here. He’s the president, and if he knew how to work with opposition in Congress, we wouldn’t be in this mess. Once again the president has chosen to drop the fight, and move on to other things. Boehner has reached out to Obama, and he’s still waiting for a reply. Maybe if Obama came off the golf course, and answered his phone messages, we could have the extension worked out and implemented to the 2.7 million waiting. This president is no Bill Clinton, who knew how to work with Republicans in Congress.

    The Republican party is entirely responsible for this mess.

    They are the ones that forced emergency unemployment benefits to be taken out of the budget.

    Republicans forced the 1 year extension that Democrats proposed down to 5 months.

    Republicans required offset for the extension, in spite of the fact that Congressional Republicans approved the Medicare Doc fix WITHOUT offsets.

    A bi-partisan bill was approve by the Senate with the payfors requested now John Boehner wants job creation measures added but when asked what those measures should be he says ask the White House.

    Now Republicans are playing games with the welfare of millions of Americans lives holding up the extension trying to get the Keystone XL boondoggle approved for their Koch brother masters.

    Make no mistake it’s the Republicans that have created this misery for millions of American people.

  • YONATAN C

    It’s now been almost five months, since the more than two million unemployed workers have been without unemployment benefits. Since late last December, when these families ran out of their benefits, they have been waiting and struggling patiently for the senate to pass the unemployment extension bill. However, due to the Republicans constant rejections and stalling tactics, the much needed bill has not yet been passed. While these politicians continued to play their ‘party politics”, these millions of families have had to face evictions, home foreclosures, personal bankruptcies, and homelessness. These workers have been destroyed financially and emotionally, and the Republican party is to blame for this, due to their reluctance to accept any of the proposals brought to them by the Democrats. Since the past several months, whenever the bill was to be discussed and voted upon, time and time again , the senate took another break or vacation, leaving these poor Americans hung out to dry a little longer waiting for help that doesn’t come. This was the first time in many years that the senate did not pass an extension bill. Their refusal this year to pass an extension bill can only be explained because of their deliberate and calculated plan to make the democrats, and particularly president Obama to look bad, and not be successful in the people’s eyes. These Republicans have shown us that their own political agenda is much more important to them than the needs of the people for whom they serve. While senators such as John Boehner expressed their concerns about fiscal responsibility , and budget concerns, the congress just has passed a foreign aid package worth Billions for the Ukraine. Why was this passed without much fanfare or debate, while poor unemployed families who are becoming more and more destitute with each more senate delay of the extension bill? Where are the Republicans “family values’ which they like to so often claim to be the party that represents family values? The Republicans will surely find out in the 2016 elections just how foolish their decision has been not to help these millions of workers

    Boehner has no idea what he wants. He just makes it up as he goes. It must depend on his BAC. It is interesting that he makes a demand, that demand is met, then he changes his mind and creates a new demand. It is clear he has no intention of cooperating with the present administration, or being a decent human being. All he wants, is to use the unfortunates as leverage to get his way. It would be nice if he could sober up and grow up. The make-up isn’t hiding the gin blossoms. He had no problem passing EUC under Bush, and it was not financed in any way. Why is it he is trying to look fiscally responsible when he gives tax break to millionaires and big business?

    • left wing

      usual blame and spin from the insane left wing paid troll

      • Ron

        @left wing

        First, thank you for your very articulate comment. It is refreshing to actually converse with someone whose knuckles don’t drag on the ground. I appreciated you alternate point of view filled with information about why I am incorrect. I guess the “because I said so” is you upper limit.

        No, the facts are that the unemployment extensions passed during the Bush administration 3 times with no issues. Since President Obama took office the unemployment extensions have been delayed twice by the Republican party.

        The only answer Boehner gave about what it would take was the ignorant remark “ask the President.” Which is Republican for, if I tell you, you might know, then I would have to follow through, if only not to look ignorant. He has no independent thought.

        No spin needed for the uselessness of the republican party. It is anything the President says they vote against.

        By the way, nobody needs to pay me to point out unfairness and ignorance when I see it.

        By the way Sebastian Klay, thanks for noticing me.

      • Ron

        What an insightful response.

        By the way fact 1: there was never a problem extending unemployment during the Bush administration. Fact 2: It has only been during the Obama administration that unemployment extensions have been fought twice.

        Thank you Sebastian Klay for responding!

  • Santiago Alemedia

    If Pelosi is so concerned about the unemployed then why doesn’t she do something about 8 million illegals who have stolen jobs in the US? No, instead she wants to grant legal status to 12 million new job applicants and let businesses import 200,000 foreign workers every month in th Comprehensive Amnesty Bill.

    Nancy, how about getting tough on employers who hire illegals? How about pushing for a return of workplace raids, employee verification, fighting visa fraud, prosecuting deporteds who are caught again in the US? That would open up a lot of jobs for Americans and legal residents who would then no longer need unemployment compensation.

    Just writing another check on the US bank account will solve nothing.

    When will the senate finally pass the much needed unemployment extension bill in the senate, for the more than two million families that were affected by the loss of benefits late last December? For more than four months now, the Republican senate has dragged their feet, and has made delay after delay to postpone passing the bill, in the hopes of making it just go away. In the mean time, these millions of families have been ruined financially, having been evicted from their homes, having their homes foreclosed upon, having to file personal bankruptcy, and being made homeless. These workers had worked many years in their jobs, and have paid into the system, believing help would be there for them if ever they needed it. However, they’ve been made to feel like social leaches, and social parasites, for asking for what they’ve already paid into from their weekly pay. While the congress quickly passed a foreign aid package for the Ukraine, worth billions of tax payer’s dollars, nothing has been passed to help these struggling families on a total verge of economical collapse, facing homelessness for lack of income to pay their living expenses. These millions of families have been used my the political parties as “political leverage”, and as “bargaining chips” to further one another’s political agendas. These people are not lazy or unwilling to work. The majority are older Americans with families to support, and mortgages to pay. These people have worked all of their lives and just happen to find themselves in one of the worst recessions in many years. How can the Republican party claim to represent “family values”, while making every effort to kill the extension bill that would help these families in the senate? I hope that the American people will have our own ” American Spring” like in other countries, and take back our country from these self-promoting, self-righteous, ego=filled, career politicians. We need to bring back the ” public servant” back into fashion once again. These politicians in Washington have totally become out of touch with common people which makes up 99 percent of this country. Shame on the Republicans for causing so much grief and pain to these millions of families without unemployment benefits. The American voters will not forget that in the 2016 elections.

    The worse cheaters currently in our country, are the politicians who have cheated the more than two million unemployed workers out of their extended unemployment benefits since last December. These politicians such as John Boehner, not only have cheated these poor unemployed families of their benefits, but have ruined their credit and financial lives in the process. These people have worked all of their lives, believing that the taxes being taken out of their weekly paychecks, may one day benefit them should they become unfortunately unemployed due to lay offs and downsizing. However after their 26 weeks were finished, they were left hung out to dry by the republican senators. Although billions of tax payer’s dollars recently was approved for the Ukraine, these families have received nothing but delay after delay, and promises after promises. Many of these families have lost their homes, have been evicted from their apartments, have become bankrupt, and homeless, While the politicians continue to play their “party politics” and using these families as bargaining chips and political leverage. It’s sad that the victims of the recession, which largely was the fault of the greedy banking and airline industries, amongst other large corporations, are made to feel that they’re asking for something that they really don’t deserve, such as financial help to support their families until they can find proper work again. Why does it seem that the government can always find the money to bailout companies, and for foreign aid, and personal raises, but not to help the most needy Americans in our country? We’re now going into 5 months of waiting and hoping for help to arrive in the form of an extension bill passing in the senate, and the Republicans are still not wanting to help these families. They have become so out of touch with the reality of the 99 percent of us in this country, that they have no clue of the amount of pain and damage that’s been caused with each passing day, week, and month that the extension isn’t passed for these families. My only solace is that in the next election in 2016, these millions of broken and hurt Americans will use their voting rights to vote all of these career politicians out from office for good. We need to bring back “public servants, not “public masters”

    Your accounts are common.

  • Mark

    You’ll see nothing, as your accounts are common and we are aware already. You have failed.

  • Mark

    Yes we get the picture, and your accounts are obvious, your tacts are old antiquated nonsense that we have understood since you started attempting to reply to yourself. Again, there is nothing you can do here. You can attempt to spew your ill will but I will be here to respond and show everyone who you are. Every single time. Unless you move along and seek the truth in your life and try as hard as you can to be a good person instead of using your time to try and be negative to people who need real help.

  • Seth

    Then you will be gone and we will carry on exactly the same. You’ll move along, don’t worry.

    The paid trolls have destroyed these websites on unemployment. It’s too bad they’ve turned the unemployed people against each other. I can only wish that people can discuss their situation without these ignorant people intruding. I wish everyone good luck.

    • Mark

      Trolls to not exist. Fact. They are myths. Fact. Myths do not exist. fact. You are wrong. You are incorrect. Trolls cannot do anything. you sound so silly. You are who you rail against. Move long, unpaid loser.

    It makes me sick to my stomach to hear those of you talk about go out and find a job. I would, if I could, I’ve submitted more resumes than I can keep up with. I’m at that fifth and over club that no one wants to hire. I would like for you to
    come stand in my shoes, or those of us that have worked all our lives, and
    then you find yourself out of work, no fault of your own. When you have no way to pay your mortgage, and you sit up at night wondering how you’re going to make it.

    Then I forgot to add having to provide for my four children. So don’t
    tell me about work, I’ve work for forty-years in corporate America. The last
    three companies that I have worked for went out of business. My former company downsized, again leaving me out of work.

    Then you look at the budget that Ryan has proposed all the programs that help that needy, they cut them. However, they always seem to find ways to cut taxes for the wealthy. I want to give you some facts. Ten percent of the world’s populations makes up 47% of the world’s Wealth, that wealth is estimated at over 100 Trillion Dollars. How much does it take, when is enough, an enough, how much money does one have to have. Then you talk about small companies that’s, part of being in business, when you start a business, that’s something that you have to add into your operating cost. However, those of you that haven’t run a multi –million dollar business, wouldn’t understand the first thing about running a business.

    I’m just going to keep it real, if the President was White, we would not even have this problem. The Right Wing Republican’s just can’t get over the fact that’s it’s a Black Man in the White House. It’s time to get over it, he won, and he’s not going any were for the next year 1-1/2. By the way, the way that their going, they just may lose the White House…Again!!! In closing, if we just had a little more Love For One Another, and GOD IN OUR HEART!!! It could make all the difference in the …world!!!

    IS BOEHNER SCARED TO LET THE VOTE FOR UNEMPOLYMENT OUT FOR A VOTE BECAUSE HE IS AFRAID? IF NOT, LET US SEE!!!

  • Jodie Mcgruer

    I’m with Nancy Pelosi. Leaving the millions of unemployed twisting in the wind is “immoral & unconscionable”. The House needs to stop posturing & start taking action. We need help now or you will have not votes come election time.

  • cougarman01

    Your Liberal recipe is a total failure Pelosi your a walking talking contradiction your uninformed misguided delusional dribble is the real problem. The other problem is you are way to stupid to ever figure it out.

    Here’s a suggestion for you, Ms. Pelosi: Have your staff take screen captures of all these internet articles on Republicans CLAIMING they are urging Boehner to put the UI bill on the floor for votes and then publish their responses to you when you press them to put their signatures on your Discharge Petition. All bark no bite doesn’t get you votes!
