Obama Push Needed for Unemployment Extension, Republican Says

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., wants President Barack Obama to get more involved with talks to revive an unemployment extension, as he continues to urge his GOP House colleagues to act.

“The president needs to get more involved in this discussion right now,” Heller said Tuesday. “I know it’s important to him. … I do believe that if the president would be more engaged on this particular topic we could get something done.”

The junior Nevada senator has been working with Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., on a bipartisan proposal that would renew long-term unemployment benefits after they expired in December. Nevada and Rhode Island have the two highest unemployment rates in the nation.

He said talks are ongoing, but declined to provide many details, other than that the measure would not likely be retroactive, in part because the unemployment rate has been trending downward.

“It would probably have to be a prospective UI bill until the end of the year or for a full year,” Heller said.

Heller’s comments come after he had dinner Monday night with some Republican House and Senate members, including House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. A former House member, Heller remains close with his former colleagues.

An unemployment extension “is always a topic of discussion; as to what they think they could live with,” Heller said, adding that there was “shallow support” for an unemployment benefits bill at this point.

House Republicans, led by Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, have been unwilling to consider extending benefits, in part, because the Democrat-run Senate has not considered any of the job creation legislation that House Republicans have sent to the chamber. Boehner has repeatedly called on Obama to propose a new package — something that has not happened.

“The House’s position is that the president needs to step up with an agreed-to job creation [provision] in the bill,” Heller said. “And he hasn’t done it at this point and that has been Speaker’s position all along and they remain in that particular position.”

Obama does not appear to have called Boehner or otherwise gotten directly involved on the issue, beyond sending out tweets and urging his followers to contact Congress.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was pressed on the the topic Monday.

“There’s only one reason this hasn’t gotten done. … Congressional Republicans in both the Senate and the House have blocked it,” he said.

Earlier this week, Democratic Rep. Sander M. Levin of Michigan proposed attaching a six-month, prospective extension to either the highway bill or the tax cut measures moving through Congress this summer.

Heller said he has also been urging his House colleagues to pass an extension bill, including whatever sweeteners are needed to get the votes.

“I tell them ‘I don’t care, just pass something, get it over here, we’ll negotiate it in conference,’ ” Heller said. “Get what you want in the bill, do whatever the House has to do.”

Asked what the House would want, Heller speculated that it could include a repeal of the medical device tax, which is a funding mechanism for the Affordable Care Act.

    PLEASE PASS UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSIONS WITH RETROACTIVE
    BENEFITS !….if they drop the retroactive they may as well drop all of
    it…those who lost everything over the last 5 months will never recover from
    this without the retroactive. we have lost our cars, our homes and now
    everything else we ever worked for. it is almost impossible to get a job
    without money and a car and it’s even more impossible to try and start over
    when you are 61 and everything has just been taken away. many do not realize
    how hard it is to see everything you have worked for being taken from you. all
    of your belongings suddenly disappear …no family pictures, no clothing, no
    furniture, no memories….everything. GONE ! because of John Boehner !

    • Dan Coddington

      Don’t get me wrong I hate Boehner with a passion but Obama could have forced a vote and democrats in the house could have pushed harder as well. Not even all the democrats signed the petition to get a vote without needing Boehner. I plan to vote out all incumbents this November to invoke real change.

      • kathy gray

        Yes, Obama has NOT helped and Reid tried but should have known when he and the President kept challenging the Republicans on minor issues prior that they would never pass the EUC. Or should have insisted attached to another bill…sad.

    • murica-is-f’d

      Are you saying the GOP is responsible for you losing your pictures, furniture and your memories?

    • murica-is-f’d

      Retro = dead. your life = you have made it miserable…you…and.only you…you lost everything..no one else but you…do you even know how Congress works??..

      • Wayne Heddinger

        I sure do…obviously you don’t. bills do not die until the current congress changes at the end of their term. Any bill presented and not voted on sits active until then. as far as my life…I worked since 15 and have held very good job until my company eliminated positions due to the economy. I used my savings and retirement to pay as much forward as possible but even that ran out while republicans did nothing…which as usual for them…they have done nothing for America ever…you can’t name one republican bill that actually has helped Americans. so go away troll because that is all you are !

        • mrmano_0

          it called ‘back to the Senate” to be restructured. the “CURRENT” bill is not being voted on in its CURRENT structure…its called “authorizing” legislation parlor games….the bill is currently dead…get a realistic grip on life…you need to petition Harry Reid and Obama…you are terrible at poker….

      Jazzy, I am happy to hear that you received the funds needed to make a partial car payment. I asked God to sustain us all as we go through this battle to get the UI Benefits and/or find gainful employment.

      I’ve read a few of your comments on previous post and I’ve been praying for you and your daughter as I have everyone who is suffering due to the selfishness and unwillingness of our government.

      Good luck on your job interviews I will certainly be praying and keeping my fingers across for you.

      • Jazzy

        Kim, Thank you for the nice note. I’m scared just like so many others. I can only imagine what it is like for others, whom I too pray for.

    • Karen McLeod

      You know a lot more people will be filing for SSDI, mental exams. By not allowing our benefits this affects everyone in the area mental, emotional, and physical components in our lives. Believe I am praying that we all get the help we need. My heart breaks because we have GOP who are block everything. Yes I do believe our President needs to be more vocal for we are in a serious crisis. I have depleted my saving had to go get on food stamps, was able to get medical insurance due to Obamacare and no income. I am praying and we must trust God to get us through this.

          Fed. ,good point the elite controlled media cons people into believing the 266,000 who got jobs last month, were full time with benefits, by not breaking it down. Were these full time or part time. The Elite want the stock market to rise on feel good news. They will not breathe a word about the 13 million unemployed which is probably a lowball number

        • satoshi n.

          Quoted from a person called “me” so it is not my thoughts
          There hasn’t been any action on this in over two months from either side
          of the aisle. I honestly think that at this point the only people that
          even care remotely are those that were on the system and the 70,000 a
          week that are coming off the regular benefits and having no where to go.
          This story isn’t even being covered by any of the major news media at
          all for any reason. This ship has sunk. And you can blame both sides –
          yet you still have nothing. Both sides of congress is going home to
          their million dollar homes and I guarantee you that you nor your family
          crossed their minds not once today – nor tomorrow. They are all focused
          now on giving amnesty to potentially 30,000,000 voters and making sure
          that they have medical care, housing, food, etc. You my fellow
          unemployed Americans – are not news – your cause is no longer sexy – in
          fact – your starting to be a bother to these politicians so please go
          sit in the corner and wait for the eviction notices to come – but do so
          quietly please.

          Yes Kathy I have to agree I have not seen our President taking more of an aggressive measure against the GOP. Its not fair they keeping taking breaks while we suffer.He has to speak up, for this is out of control. I have applied for jobs and they ask me for my salary requirement. I tell them I hear nothing again. How are we suppose to live off 8.00 or less. But again I am hurt, but agree President Obama needs to come strong against these cruel people. They are eating and not worried about a thing. I need a vacation so bad. The stress has taken its toll had saved money to go with my brother and family to the beach. Well that not happening. My money is gone. Yet the people in the white house goes on vacation. Its crazy!!! we got to stand firm and pray that God gives us all a major breakthrough.

    Kudos to Senator Heller for publicly calling out Obama. It’s put up or shut up time. Obama shouldn’t be ashamed to call Boehner and to become actively involved to help the cause of more than 3,000,000 suffering Americans. This is a Republican working his butt off to help the long term unemployed. Mr. President, take a cue from Sen. Heller. The time to act is NOW.

  • punchkar

    To restore the unemployment extension with the retro payments the government would actually have to care about us unemployed Americans or just Americans in general…and lets face it folks THEY DON’T. If they did they would have passed this months ago before people started losing everything. It’s more important for this country to send billions to other countries then it is to give it to their own citizens. Shame on this government for not helping their own.

    President Obama needs to get directly involved and task the Senate and Congress to create legislation for the unemployment bill. Reps. Reed and Heller want’s to get this ball rolling but there doesn’t seem to be any urgency on the topic.

  • kathy gray

    OBAMA failed us! I voted for him and he has done nothing since saying in his big January speech that it “should be passed”…..wow. Boehner is a modern day Hitler and heartless along with his delightful repub coherts like the crazy Rand family (dangerous in my view).
    Jazzy I don’t think that was the amount you needed and I too am hurting so feel it and know how it feels like a knife in the back. People don’t realize landlords do not settle for partial payment. I called my local county and they said maybe $108 food stamps (never been on wow I can eat peanut butter sandwiches for maybe 2 weeks). Nothing out there and the man I so admired and voted for is no where. He could have put EUC in the Farm Bill (my millionaire brother farmer is feeling NO pain) or vetoed recent tax cuts….oh my…..
    I’m ashamed to be an American.

    • Karen McLeod

      Kathy I feel your pain and I am in the position where I had to tell my landlord I could only pay half my rent. I am worried about the rest, but I have to trust God to get through this. I have two degrees and no job. 58 yrs old and single. President Obama wants to help us, but Boehner and his coworkers are heartless people who are playing gambit with our lives. If you look you will see the GOP has blocked everything all because our President won’t give in to their horrific demands. The GOP has launched a attack on the middle class, the poor, and the really poor. I do want President Obama to be more vocal. Its hard to see him asking for money for some things and this crisis of unemployment is present. Please read my other posts and you will see what the GOP are doing and why our President’s hand are tied. Am praying for us all. Pretty soon I am going to have to go the library for internet, that if I have gas for my car.

      • kathy gray

        Thank Karen. I too understand how hard the Republicans have made things for our President however, we are running out of time; he does need to get involved. We used to hear GOP the would pay for this now we hear it won’t be an election issue for either side??? How can this be? Yes, I am a formerly strong backer of the President but he is losing me. I do not see any reaction or action on his part of late – to even speak out to the cold hearted GOP would do me good. I too have a college degree and believe me at my age 61 years I’ll take any job however, the cruelty and harshness of these elected officials is astounding. I believe they recess again (after returning from this recess) for the summer on July 4th – not fair they can bask at their summer homes and let us flounder…..
        Let’s all pray we can see a resolution soon (miracle I guess at this point). My hope for the best for us all!

      • Chicken

        Listen guys… The GOP is imploding… Obama is on my sh*t list too BUT I have faith they have a plan… Half of me thinks they know something is happening on the other side that will effect major change… The goal is to either get the house… Or atleast have the GOP get beaten into submission.

        • murica-is-f’d

  • David

    DROVES OF THE LONG TERM UNEMPLOYED TURN OUT AT WELFARE OFFICES ACROSS THE COUNTRY and have begun enjoying benefits like free housing, free medical, eyeglass and dental coverage, free cell phone, free food and some spending cash. If this is the best the government can do is to leave you for dead then take all you can get from them. This situation could have been handled differently but this was their choice to turn their back on you. Screw Boehner and all his crooked politican friends by taking a permanent vacation on them. The politicans don’t work for their money, why should you? Don’t let your family go another day without, do it today and start enjoying the benefits tomorrow. Call Boehner’s office and tell him you are applying for welfare and to forget about EUC. Become a permanent ward of the government that left you for dead.

    • satoshi n.

      David the welfare that you speak of is less than you were lead to believe. for instances telephone assistance is for 2 month processing time to look at your application. Then you have to pay connect fees and the entire bill for the next 4 months the state kicks in $3.25 per month and the feds kick in $9.25 per month only after you have paid the entire bill for 4 months after the 2 month to look at your application. Free medical if your an adult no, unless your disabled. Food st. ,$2.05 per meal per day if your lucky. Spending cash idk, call your elected official.

    I have read the posts and believe me I am hurt and ashamed of what the GOP is doing to us all. I have kept up with this for a long time and what I am finding out many of us are older. I am 58 yrs old singe African American mother with two degrees. I lost my job last year due to my former employer not paying me on time and I reported him for corruption. I praise God unemployment allowed my initial claim. I was on state benefits for 26weeks and ran out this April. President Obama wants to give us the extension, but the GOP want him to repeal the medical tax device which is the funding mechanism for the Affordable Care Act. I need my unemployment benefits we all do, but do we let the GOP rob of medical care that has enrolled over 8 million people. Our President is being held hostage due to the fact he won’t give to this nuts who want more for their party and continue an evil war on the less fortunate. The GOP want the Keystone XL pipeline to be approved but at what price, again this will destroy the lands of the American native Americans and farmers.

    • David

      Satoshi, there are many haters who have other issues they are not dealing with that come here to try to get a rise out of you. For those that are men it is probably because they were beat up by the girls in their neighborhoods as kids and could never let it go. Anyone who is that small that they feel a need to kick someone when they are down is a pitiful person with not much reason to live. It could also stem from them not being accepted by anyone in their lives so therefore they feel a need to put others down. In any case just know that you are a better person for not lashing out back at them. We will all meet our “Maker” one day and these poor fools will get to explain why they felt the need to do this. God help them please as they need help badly.

    If Boehner calls for job creation and we all know he is going to play that card again, of course what he is referring to is getting the Boehner/Koch Keystone XL Pipeline approved for the Koch brothers. It stands to line his pockets with dirty cash.

    • DJMiles

      Not true Boehner simple stated for 6 months pass 1 of the 45 jobs bills sitting under Reids desk and as we all know Democrats failed to do that! He then reached out to the white house and asked Obama to list witch of the 45 Obama would find acceptable for the house to attach and was given a response of Obama is not willing to compromise

      • Chicken

        Uh do you realize every one of those bills has something to do with the XL Pipeline or taking things out of Obamacare?

        • mrmano_0

      • mrmano_0

        you’re a liar and offer no evidence for your made up information.

      • Mark

        none of those are actual jobs bills they are all bills to benefit industry and not the American people.

        • DJMiles

          Even the ones authored by Democrats? How about the Veterans assistance/skills training bill? Simplify tax codes for small businesses? Tax incentives for job creation? Reduced government Regulations of small business? Red tape reduction? Small business tax cut act? …..the list goes on but as you probably noticed many have to do with helping small business’s succeed with is the opposite of what the Obama administration has been doing for the last 6 years ! Obama has never done anything for small businesses of only his friends at large corporations like GE, Apple, Walmart etc He has long been know as the president for the 1% ….To back this up I encourage you too take a look at his proposed American jobs act or research what companies he so kindly let opt out of his ACA saving them billions! Us intelligent Americans don’t want corporations to have a monopoly because without competition prices rise significantly and wages decline….I’m not against big corporations like Wal mart but don’t believe they should be our only options however I could understand why Obama does since they fund the campaigns and it’s not possible to funnel money from us the consumer to government thru small business.

          • mrmano_0

            almost each one of those does nothing to create ONE job. Most of them have a provision to either authorize the Keystone XL project (which is bad for America) or dismantle the ACA (which Americas want intact) or they deregulate environmental regulation (which is bad for America) or some other subversive bill to undermine the welfare of the American worker.

          • Mark

            almost each one of the Republican jobs bills contains a poison pill designed to undermine the Obama Presidency.

            The Veterans Bill passed by Republicans in Congress actually taxes Veterans benefits to pay for it.

            Republicans would rather tax Veterans to pay for a veterans bill than to tax the wealthy that Veterans were sworn to protect.

            The Republican party really is America’s worst enemy foriegn or domestic.

          • DJMiles

            Don’t every bill tax 1 group to assist anouther? I always paid taxes that benefited people in a completely different group like those on welfare! How about the ACA Obama is going to make me pay a tax for not signing up to lower the cost on those who do sign up (so he claims) I know I certain wouldn’t mind if they took more unemployment tax out of my paycheck to assist others who can’t find work during this Obama crisis! So what is wrong with a slight increase in taxes for veterans to provide assistance to other vets in need? I know I don’t complain when my tax dollars go to fund various veterans programs so I really doubt vets would be opposed to it.

      • Mark

        admit you’re a shill for the Republican party sent here to spread mistruth and lies.

        • DJMiles

          Not at all in fact I’d love to see some Republicans replaced by new Republicans ….replace them all for all I care I’m here as a shill for the unemployed who are really getting screwed by our elected officials & the president…..I could only do so much to try and help get unemployment passed by explaining to them their being lied to and used by the Democrats….If you noticed I never even tell people who they should vote for because I don’t care if they all vote Democrat but if they want unemployment extended & I know many desperately need it then they must stop promising the Democrats their votes and send the message that we are all aware of the game they are playing. …common it don’t take a genius to realize what’s been happening here! If their not going to pass a jobs bill fine no problem it just means Unemployment will have to be attached to a Republican priority or must pass legislation however in the last 6 months what we heard was…..Budget deal on the floor Dems say we’re not gonna include unemployment but don’t worry we will pass it with the farm bill…
          2 weeks before farm bill passed Harry Reid tabled unemployment saying Obama wants congress to work on other bills and then farm bill was passed…..next onto COLA then Omnibus next Doc fix onto tax extenders…..over to WIA witch interesting enough Dozens of Republicans wanted to attach unemployment too H.R803 skills act! On may 22nd a deal was reached on WIA/

    WHEN BOEHNER CALLS FOR JOB CREATION TRY THIS ON FOR SIZE … lock him and Obama in a room for a fight to the death. Put it on pay-per-view and use that money to pay the unemployed. I am sure there are millions who would pay to watch Boehner die a slow painful death, you know kind of like what he is doing to the unemployed. Use whatever money is left over to deport the rest of Boehner’s family for what he has done to good American citizens.

  • FedUpInNJ

    I hope Eric Cantor losing the Virginia primary to a Tea party candidate sends a CLEAR message to the Republican party. People have had enough of their do nothing, filibustering ways. The unemployment issue is not an Obama issue. ONLY the Republicans in the House are holding up this bill. Obama can only sign it or veto it but he has to GET IT first! John Boehner has ruined the Republican party to the point that ANYONE, even a Tea Party member, is starting to look pretty good compared to them. I agree there must be “something” Obama can do to move this along after 6 months! “Year of Action”??? If the “action” is people losing everything they worked their whole lives for then yes, it is a year of action for over 3 million people; not exactly the “action” the middle class needs. The gridlock in congress is a joke, they act like spoiled children! Hopefully ousting Eric Cantor will wake them up and show them people have had enough, they better get this and other bills to the floor for a fair vote!

  • DJMiles

    Any even notice that for the second time a Republican is reaching out to Obama to get EUC passed? Why has the Democrat leader Harry Reid not reached out to him? Or any Democrat for that matter? Senator Schumer meets with Obama twice a month to discuss the mid term strategy of forcing Republicans to oppose all pocketbook issues so why don’t he tell Obama to make the call to Boehner?

  • tgrella01

    I’m glad that pr*ck Canter lost in VA. Good for that pervert-like Geek! But, truthfully, O’Bama and Hapless Harry Reid have been the Democrats worst enemies on the EUC issue. To let 6 months go by when the unemployed are out of money, is perverse and criminal. It should have SIMPLY been in the budget in Dec 2013. Case closed.

    The Dems tried to embarass the Repubs, but it failed, at OUR expense! Now, they can’t dig their way out of the hole they created.

    Solution: VOTE OUT ALL INCUMBENTS !! Both Dems and Repubs!!

    • DJMiles

      I agree incumbents need to go….A unemployment extension has 0 chance of being passed if people don’t realize that Democrats and Obama could have gotten this passed before it even expired! I could care less who people vote for in November but if they want EUC it’s time they send a clear message to Reid and Obama that they will vote against every Democrat if they play this political gain for another day.

Your dad has to be the biggest loser in the world to have brought you in to this world. You are a total waste of oxygen and nobody has any use for you. You crossed the wrong person when you crossed me. Now you get to find out what the concequences are. Good luck you will need it.

I promise and as you can already see I keep my word. The past twenty four hours have not been good for you but have been fun for me. I can’t wait to get out to California.

          • David

            You have tried to dishonor good men here that are vets for the last time. I can’t wait to have your address cause I am coming and it will not be pretty for you. Vets are not here for your amusement but I will use you for mine.

He hurls insults from behind the safety of his computer screen at those that are down on their luck. I am doing everything I can to obtain his address. My plans are to visit him and teach him some manners. Anything you can do to assist in getting his address will be appreciated. I will rid us all of this mental midget once I get his address. He is a total waste of your time and is only here to try to get a rise out of you.

            In this case God can sit back, this character is all mine and when I get his address I will make a youtube video of me teaching him some manners. We will all get a good laugh at his expense once I find him. God has no time for people who are this much of a low life.

          • David

            There is no excuse for this worthless scum. He operates here with multiple user names such as mrmano, left wing, Sebastian Klay, Biff Wellington and Valerieblanck, yes he even poses as a woman. He has other serious issues he is not facing and chooses to hurl insults at others who are down on their luck all the while hiding behind the safety of his computer screen. Pay him no attention and he goes away. I am trying to get his address now so I can visit him and teach him some manners. The best part of him ran down his mothers leg and some dribbled out of her mouth too. The Lord will serve him his just dues but first he is going to be mine. I will be sure to post a youtube video of him pleading for his miserable life for all to laugh at. It is just a matter of time for him. Have a great day!

      • mr man o_0

        Wrong. it’s John Boehner and we all know it.

        • DJMiles

          Shows how much you know then…..John Boehner won his primary and is running uncontested in Nov.

  • conservativechick

    Why do Democrats care more about illegal aliens that the American people? This could have been passed months ago, but the Democrats were more concerned about giving health care to illegal immigrants.

    • DJMiles

      Don’t forget we have a president that still hasn’t provided any documentation that he’s even a natural born citizen. …Even turned down a $50 million dollar donation to a charity of his choice just to show his birth certificate

      • Chicken

        Wake the f#^k up and get over that… Seriously…

        • DJMiles

          If he’s American then why is he so set on destroying our country? Would he ignore Ukrainians if they needed assistance? Forget that I just remembered he just sent them billions and held a few dozen press conferences in support of them….What has he done for unemployed Americans?

          • mrmano_0

            How are they paying for aid to Israel, Ukraine, tax breaks, raises, agri-business subsidies ? On and on when the Republicans what to find money they do.

            The Republican party is America’s greatest threat foreign or domestic.

  • DJMiles

    John Boehner could get a $900,000,000,000 Republican priority passed in both chambers & signed by the President and yet you people believe that the Democrats that control the Senate & the presidency have no options to get a 9 billion dollar unemployment extension passed….If that was true then we really need to get the Democrats out of office so that bills that benefit Americans could become law

    • Chicken

      So explain to me how the president can force Boehner to bring a bill to a vote?

      • DJMiles

        Same way he got EUC passed in 2010,2011,2012 & 2013 by refusing to sign any Republican priorities until unemployment is restored… in fact unemployment was restored at 1:43 am 01/01/12 New years day because Obama refused to sign corporate tax cuts that expired at midnight 12/31 until congress restored EUC…. So far this year Obama has signed every bill congress put on his desk without even mentioning EUC

        • Chicken

          He has not signed tax cuts yet… In fact he mentioned EUC before he would sign

          • DJMiles

            It don’t have to be tax extenders he could have insisted EUC be included in the budget deal but instead issued a statement saying he will not insist on it being included in the budget deal….Next he could have not signed the Republican farm bill Or the water info structure bill….How about Omnibus or H.R 803 skills act compromise ? If you remember a lot of house Republicans were trying to attach unemployment to H.R 803 and now that a deal has been reached Democrats are against attaching EUC to the bill….Speaker Boehner made several attempts to negotiate unemployment with Obama asking for him to list what job creation measures the white house would accept for the house to attach to the bill since Senate Democrats refused to allow a vote on any of them! Obama’s response was he will not compromise on unemployment. …Also Obama never threatened to veto a tax extenders bill if unemployment was not included he only stated that Republicans are willing to give tax credits to corporations at a cost far more then renewing unemployment.

          • DJMiles

            Exactly what I had said! He didn’t threaten to veto them if unemployment was not extended but if they were not paid for….He noted the same group demanded unemployment be paid for but that is all…. To show just how out of it Obama is! Shortly after taking office it was him that has been urging congress to make the tax cuts permanent and now that the House Has done that he opposes it http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2010-09-05/obama-pledges-new-measures-next-week-to-boost-u-s-economic-growth-hiring.html

          • Chicken

            The only “DEALS” Boehner wants is XL Pipeline or Obamacare cuts… Every “Jobs” bill they have sitting in the Senate have provisions about the above.

          • DJMiles

            John Boehner never once said keystone needs to be approved for him to allow a vote on unemployment nor did he ever say Obama care needs to be repealed….One thing Republicans and most Democrats are all in favor of is repealing the medical device tax….I don’t know where u r getting your info from but the 45 house passed jobs bills have nothing to do with keystone nor Obama care! Most are tax incentives for small businesses, simplifying the tax code, less government regulations on companies.etc….their is also a good unemployed veterans assistance/job training bill and various bills to help those interested in starting a business of their own…Also you must keep in mind that not all house passed jobs bills were created by Republicans so Senate Democrats could have passed 1 created by house Democrats and if that still wasn’t good enough John Boehner even gave them the option of coming up with their own job proposal! He also gave Obama that same option so no matter how much you try to twist it their really is no reason other then Democrats never wanted to extend unemployment

          • Chicken

            I have been watching C-Span 1 & 2 and the house’s daily activity. I have heard them read and defend these bills. I assure you there is no twisting. EVERYTHING they have sent had language about Obamacare changes. Some had language about the XL Pipeline which they consider a “Jobs” bill. I don’t get my information from the interwebs… I get it from their mouths live.

          • DJMiles

            Keep in mind theirs 45 of them sitting under Reids desk and I’d say less then 5 that even contain the word keystone or Obama care! As I said before repealing the medical device tax is something even Democrats want to do and if you look up what the tax is you would understand why! Keystone XL is going to be passed however because of billionaire Tom Steyer putting up $100,000,000 in campaign donations to the Democrats for not approving the pipeline it will not be approved until after November…..

    Talk about beating someone when they’re already down. I received a letter from the state, after a year of searching for employment, to attend an approved training/degree program. I chose a college and program that the state approved. I was even told that as long as I remained a full-time student, I did not have to complete the work search requirements. I have not received an UE check since the end of December 2013. I am now drowning in $15,000 of student loan debt. Yes, loan, not grant. I have completed two semesters. I would have never gone back to college if I knew the program was included in the UEC. So, now I face the stress of deciding how I will pay for the student loans I have already, should I finish the degree and dive into more student loans, or should I search for employment and “eat” the student loan debt thus far. Instead of helping me by allowing me to build onto my career by offering the program, my life has never been so upside down. I am now depressed, anxious, stressed, my health is compromised, and I have more debt in student loans than I have ever had my whole life. How about punishing the ones who abuse UE, so the legit unemployed don’t have to suffer.

    6 months after Obama told Democrats not to include a unemployment extension in the budget deal they are still refusing to allow a vote on a jobs bill, create a job creation measure of their own, attach unemployment to a Republican priority or any must pass legislation and still refusing to compromise….So for anyone waiting on a unemployment extension to be passed I assure you theirs a better chance you will win the lottery

    • satoshi n.

      dj i agree but could you provide a reference to where o bum said that.

    • mrmano_0

      Republicans have no actual job creation measure. Keystone XL is a Republican boondoggle that is bad for America and only profits foreigners and the Koch brothers.

      The steel being used for the pipeline is not even from the United States it’s Indian steel because Republicans don’t care about the American people.

      Republicans only care about lining their own slimy pockets.

    what sucks is that that some of us would not get anything because it is most likely NOT going to be retroactive. my time is up. i lost my car, my house, my ability to fight a good fight in court for my kids and the retroactive was the only thing that could have helped recoup some. Now that’s off the table most likely unless something super positive magically occurs. Thanks Boehner. sorry for the lack of capitalization.

    All the House Republicans are as much to blame at this point as Boehner.

    Democrats are working hard to protect the working and middle class.
    Republicans simply have no solutions that help anyone but the rich.

    Because of a loophole my unemployment benefits start back next month. So I’m good for at least 6 months, I’ve lost a lot but I’ll get by.

    Look, The United States is a liberal country always has been likely always will be. Conservatives hate progress.

    Need evidence look at the history. From Emancipation of the slaves, to a woman’s right to vote, to The New Deal (which created unemployment insurance in the first place), to Medicare, to Civil Rights, to a woman’s right to chose, Gay Marriage, legal pot on and on Conservatives ALWAYS lose.

    Remember that Republicans resisted progress and caused the suffering of millions of American people as well as hundreds of thousands of Americas Veterans and for what. To appease the Koch brothers and the radical right.

    Remember that in November.

    The Republican party is entirely to blame for the unemployment extention not being passed.

        Again, another Social Darwinist arsehole heard from. You make the assumption that the long-term unemployed are “lazy” and doing NOTHING to attempt advancing themselves. That’s a major LIE. You’re an ideologically motivated liar. Or, if I give you the benefit of the doubt, maybe you just have ideologically motivated ignorance. You have some really f*d notions of cause and effect. A compnay downsizes, for example, offshores the work to India, and then WHAT? Those employees who were given the sack are to blame? You’re a lovely human being.

    Republicans are trying to cause as much pain and suffering on the American people as possible.
    Why won’t the Republicans in Congress pass the President’s jobs Act?

    Its funny how after 6 months of Republican obstruction, repeated Republican attempts to force us to accept the dirty and dangerous Keystone XL pipeline, repeated Republican attempts to add ACA killing amendments. And the continued obstruction of John Boehner preventing the extension bill that the Senate finally passed from coming to a vote in the House.

    After all that now Republicans and their supporters are now trying to turn it around and place this failure at the feet of Democrats?

    Trying to blame this on Democrats because they didn’t try hard enough? Lol
    Well Republicans didn’t try at all and in fact actively took step to block any progress.

    Lol The Republican party are certainly masters of deceit and misinformation that’s for sure.

    The Republican party is America’s greatest threat foreign or domestic.

  • mrmano_0

    Harry S Truman said this in 1948. Republicans have not changed and are bad for America.

    “Today the forces of liberalism face a crisis. The people of the United States must make a choice between two ways of living — a decision which will affect us the rest of our lives and our children and our grandchildren after us.

    On the other side, there is the Wall Street way of life and politics. Trust the leader! Let big business take care of prices and profits! Measure all things by money! That is the philosophy of the masters of the Republican Party.

    Well, I have been studying the Republican Party for over 12 years at close hand in the Capital of the United States. And by this time, I have discovered where the Republicans stand on most of the major issues.

    Since they won’t tell you themselves, I am going to tell you.

    They approve of the American farmer — but they are willing to help him go broke.

    They stand four-square for the American home — but not for
    housing.

    They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights.

    They favor a minimum wage — the smaller the minimum the better.

    They indorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools.

    They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them.

    They approve of Social Security benefits — so much so that they took them away from almost a million people.

    They believe in international trade — so much so that they crippled our reciprocal trade program, and killed our International Wheat Agreement.

    They favor the admission of displaced persons — but only within shameful racial and religious limitations.

    They consider electric power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off.

    They say TVA is wonderful — but we ought never to try it again.

    They condemn “cruelly high prices” — but fight to the death every effort to bring them down.

    They think the American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people.

    And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.

    Now, my friends, that is the Wall Street Republican way of life. But there is another way — there is another way — the Democratic way, the way of the Democratic Party.”

  • Mark

    The lapse in unemployment benefits is ENTIRELY the fault of the Republican party.

    Paul Ryan kept an extension out of the budget. Senate Republicans whittled the year long extension Democrats proposed down to 5 months.

    John Boehner has stood in the way of the bill the Senate passed in April from coming to a vote in the House.

    The Republican party is America’s greatest threat foreign or domestic.

    Remember that in November.

  • ArmedLiberal

    Why won’t the Republicans in Congress pass the President’s jobs Act?
    Why won’t Republicans create they’re own actual jobs bill? Cutting taxes and environmental and labor regulation is NOT a jobs bill. Reagan proved to us that trill down economics does not work.

    I lost my job to no fault of my own in July of
    last year, and was receiving unemployment until Congress elected not to extend unemployment benefits, right after Christmas. Which I might add, was a terrible time to be cut off. Since then I have been going threw many hardships. (Like others), Being that I reside in Las Vegas, NV, the employment rate is higher than the national average, and at 53 years of age, its seems as if I am getting passed over. Now I have exhausted all of my funds, used up all the help that was given to me from  resources, friends and family. We were praying this would soon be over as time passed by.  I haven’t paid my rent this month, and of course gas and electric, cell and others are due. Even worst, no gas to get to a interview, if I got one. I know my story is not different from the many
    Americans that are out there, which is a shame.
    I served my country admirably for seven of the
    greatest years of my life (U.S. Navy), went on
    to obtain a A.S. Degree, Raised up four kids
    as a single parent, Coached many years being
    a mentor to children, I also attempted to go back to school with no success, even threw my G.I. Bill ,I didn’t qualify. I worked hard and paid taxes all my life, our Government rewards us in this way,  is not the American Way, I grew up to understand.  We are the best nation on earth, and I believed that. I have spent many days and long nights trying to figured out how can I can keep a roof over my head. I learned how to build a web site and built a online store. Learning on my own (couldn’t qualify) I kept  Praying that I could generate enough income so I can live with a roof over my head. My online store is a new business, because, I feel like I need something that’s gonna sustain me as I grow older. So I would like to extend my hand
    as an American to President Obama and
    Congressman John Boehner, and say, if you
    can’t come to an agreement to help people
    In there time of needs, I invite you to buy something from my online store, and support
    my efforts ,not to give up, and inspire others  not to give up , and inspire them to challenge there self
    to create their own business.
    I challenge both of you to register and buy a product from my online store in efforts to keep me from being homeless. And to inspire others and support the idea of starting their own business. I also except Donations at this point, from any American’s  who can identify with my story. if you want to help a Good  American go to http://WWW.DLSuperStore.Com . We have a wide range of products at affordable prices to choose from. 

    Share your thoughts on my Blog: http://WWW.DLSuperStore.com/blogg-2

       This letter will be forwarded to President Obama,
    and Congressman John Boehner  .

    HE NEEDED TO HAVE GIVEN IT A BOOS SIX MONTHS AGO, THE REPUBLICANS & DEMOCRATIC PARTIES, HAVE BOTH FAILED THE 3 MILLION UNEMPLOYED AMERICANS STILL WITHOUT AN EXTENSION OF UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER. BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES HAVE BEEN TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE TO GET THIS MUCH NEEDED BILL PASSED IN THE SENATE. WHILE BILLIONS OF TAX PAYER DOLLARS HAVE BEEN APPROVED BY CONGRESS IN AID FOR THE UKRAINE, MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES HAVE FELL INTO FINANCIAL RUIN WAITING FOR HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT, WHICH STILL HASN’T COME. THESE FAMILIES HAVE HAD TO FACE EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, WHILE THE REPUBLICANS CONTINUE HOLDING THE EXTENSION BILL “HOSTAGE” IN THE SENATE, FOR POLITICAL LEVERAGE, AND PARTY AGENDA. OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE ABANDONED THESE 3 MILLION FAMILIES, AND HAVE LEFT THEM HUNG OUT TO DRY, WITH NO SUPPORT. WHERE IS THEIR COMPASSION, AND COMMON DECENCY?

    • satoshi n.

      y please use lower case.

      Quoted from a person called “me” so it is not my thoughts
      There hasn’t been any action on this in over two months from either side
      of the aisle. I honestly think that at this point the only people that
      even care remotely are those that were on the system and the 70,000 a
      week that are coming off the regular benefits and having no where to go.
      This story isn’t even being covered by any of the major news media at
      all for any reason. This ship has sunk. And you can blame both sides –
      yet you still have nothing. Both sides of congress is going home to
      their million dollar homes and I guarantee you that you nor your family
      crossed their minds not once today – nor tomorrow. They are all focused
      now on giving amnesty to potentially 30,000,000 voters and making sure
      that they have medical care, housing, food, etc. You my fellow
      unemployed Americans – are not news – your cause is no longer sexy – in
      fact – your starting to be a bother to these politicians so please go
      sit in the corner and wait for the eviction notices to come – but do so
      quietly please.

    If everyone who reads this today calls their local news room and asks why the EUC bill is getting no attention in the media it will make a difference. There is a large portion of the American public that is not even aware of this travesty is taking place. Be sure to mention to them that if this were to go to vote by the people of this country and not by our crooked politicans that it would pass by overwhelming numbers. Most American’s fear losing their jobs and know that they are not above this happening to them. Not to mention they don’t want to think that other American’s are starving due to crooked politicans.

    Face the truth that there is not a politican on Earth that could really care any less about passing the EUC bill. It does not stand to line anyone in politics pocket therefore they don’t care. If one of them stood to gain a dime from it, that politican would risk his life to line his pockets with dirty money. When you get down to it Obama is no better for the people than Boehner is.

    i got this in an email the other day, rather bad joke

    Hi, everyone –

    Today, I’m thinking about all the dads across the country, spending
    time with family and loved ones — and especially those fathers serving
    our country overseas, who can’t be home with their kids today.

    But I’m also thinking about all the young people out there who don’t
    have a dad in their lives at all — or who don’t always enjoy the
    opportunities and support that come with having strong role models.

    It reminds me why we started the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative in
    the first place: because we need to do more to help young people go as
    far as their dreams and hard work will take them, no matter what they
    look like or where they grow up.

    I know I’m only here because people took a chance on me, and believed
    in me when I didn’t always believe in myself. And I want to give more
    kids that chance. It’s an all-hands-on-deck effort, from the folks on my
    staff — to you.

    You can invest in our young people, and help them be successful. You can commit to doing it right now.

    Make a pledge to mentor a young person in your community here.

    For me, this is personal.

    And for millions of young Americans around the country, it just might be life-changing.

    Thank you — and Happy Father’s Day.

    President Barack Obama

  • nonsense & no sense

    Problems are not solved by accusations. Confusion will not provide solutions. We need leaders who put political ambition aside & think outside the box. I’m just an unemployed baby boomer who once had a piece of the “american dream”.I was a casualty of the great recession. I have a rough idea that may seed a brighter future for distressed citizens. There are closed & abandoned military bases across the country. They have barracks, apartments, houses, buildings, kitchens, mess halls, schools, infirmaries, plumbing, electric etc. Staffing them should create jobs which would benefit the surrounding communities. Qualification for residence should be established with timely goals. Rent should be sliding scale
    This is opportunity not welfare.

    the fed does not have the money to fund L.t.u.e. even though every week futa runs a $3.2 billion dollar surplus.
    Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues hit a record $1,104,947,000,000 in the first five months of fiscal 2014// tax revenues are actually higher due to inflation adjusted.

  • proud confederate

    The idea of not getting retroactive payments infuriates me more than if nothing happened at all. What a slap to the face…………
    I have worked and paid into the federal system of FRAUD for almost 30 years.
    NOW, HOMELESS, HUNGRY AND HITCHING RIDES, YOUR GONNA INSULT ME BY LETTING ME HAVE A TENT AND A BYCYCLE, THEN ACT AS THO I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL?
    Whats next? Pimp out my wife and force my kids make Nikes in a sweat shop?
    Then expect me to “thank you” for “creating” jobs?….
    Im glad that i have neither, to drag thru this hell with me………
    I CANT SAY IT LOUD ENOUGH, F**K YOU AND EVERYTHING YOU SELF SERVING, LOW DOWN, BASTARDS REPRESENT………

    Sounds like Boehner rules and Obama is not concerned at all. There is no reason for Obama to care, he is not needing votes of any kind, why not sit back and do nothing. The thing is most people over 6o who are looking for a job will never get hired, this is who this whole thing is hardest on for sure.

  • satoshi n.

    y r 275,00 of the new jobs in june 2014 part time?

  • satoshi n.

    Companies are retooling away from full time to part time to elimate benefits so the ROSY 288,000 jobs are a shell game.

    We treat the poor and disadvantaged like an incurable disease Our so called “public servants”, now only “serve” themselves , or big corporations, and special interest groups with deep pockets. Since late last December, there have been three million unemployed families without an extension of unemployment benefits, .because Senator John Boehner, and his republican cronies, have refused to pass the bill in the senate. They were more interested in fighting to get the Koch Brother’s oil pipeline passed at all cost. Even if it meant at the cost of the poor and needy. Our country has recently approved billions of dollars for the Ukraine, and billions more on the defense of Europe. We’re asked to send our sons & daughters off to war, but not take care of their unemployed families back here at home. There are now three million unemployed families in financial ruin, many living on the streets, because of the party politics that are going on in Washington.
