Unemployment Extension: Score One for Gridlock

renew025 050614 445x292 Unemployment Extension: Score One for Gridlock

A Senate-passed unemployment extension would have expired yesterday. Kevin McCarthy, of Boonsboro, Md., speaks about his troubles living without an unemployment insurance extension during a rally on the House steps of the Capitol on May 6. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)

It’s official: Gridlock is winning the battle over an unemployment extension. It’s June 1, the day after a Senate-passed unemployment benefits extension would have expired, and advocates are no closer to restoring them.

An estimated 2.9 million unemployed workers have been cut off from the now-defunct Emergency Unemployment Compensation program. A House discharge petition started by Democrats aimed at forcing the bill on the floor stalled at 193 signatures — 25 short the 218 needed. No one has signed since March.

President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats may not have “given up” on an unemployment extension, but the agenda of the president and of Congress has been focused elsewhere — on the Veterans Affairs scandal, on Obama’s new plan to cut carbon emissions at power plants, his plan to phase troops out of Afghanistan, on a last, major push for an immigration overhaul, and assorted other issues.

Next week, Obama will head to Europe and most of Congress will remain focused on those other issues.

As the House left last week without acting, a flurry of Democrats went to Twitter to vow to fight on, but with no clear strategy to do so. Here’s a typical tweet from Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.:

And one from Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.:

Reed has talked up attaching a yearlong extension of the benefits and considered dropping retroactive benefits in a bid to get the blessing of House Republicans.

Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez also took to Twitter:

Perez earlier offered to negotiate an extension with Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, who stuck the Senate’s unemployment bill in a drawer, but that effort didn’t go anywhere either.

There’s also still no word on President Barack Obama personally getting engaged or calling Boehner.

  • YONATAN C

    There are still more than 2.6 MILLION unemployed families, still without an EXTENSION of benefits, since LAST DECEMBER. The politicians have continued to play “party politics”, while families are becoming homeless and hopeless. The republicans have been holding the EXTENSION BILL hostage in the senate, for political leverage, and party agenda. Both party’s have deliberately delayed and postponed the vote until it’s become too late to pass the bill. Their total lack of COMPASSION and COMMON DECENCY is appalling . The extension bill was never in their plans to have passed. This entire situation was a farce on their part. With BILLIONS of tax payer dollars sent to the Ukraine in aid recently, NOTHING has been given to help the unemployed families to recover. Both political parties have been a disappointment and a disgrace. Americans need to VOTE OUT these political parasites from office.

  • aaaa aa

    What a bunch of bull
    Now they will focus on a new bill that wont include retroactive benefits?????
    Still going to screw the 1.3 original million that expired in December 2013
    They all did nothing but play all these people.Just stringing them along with false hopes
    In my opinion,neither side had any intention on this passing.Now they will focus their attention on other issues????
    Why bother,they can never seem to focus on anything unless it benefits them and the rich….omnibus bill,doctors pay,etc,etc
    They just do not care about anyone but themselves

    • Ashleigh Smith

      Yeah, they had no intention on passing this bill in the first place. Their attention is focused on getting re-elected. If they do get re-elected it wont be because of me. Because I’m not voting. Why should I care whether or not they get their jobs back?. They won’t even me and other people get one.

  • aaaa aa

    Also,wanted to give KUDOS to Roll Call
    They seem to be the only media outlet that even cares to write about the EUC issue still on a regular basis.
    All the other news media could care less it seems

    • Ashleigh Smith

      I agree. I check it almost everyday.

  • JD

    It’s unconscionable that John Boehner wouldn’t allow the UI bill to even be voted on. I can understand the frustration of the 3 million Americans and their families. I don’t believe violence is the answer and the death threats to Boehner is the best way to handle this, but something must be done immediately with John Boehner!!!!

    • Sand

      You are right something needs to happen they need to get him the hell out of office for being so crule

  • Dee

    Yet they have no problem sending money to Ukraine and other countries while the unemployed here are suffering. It’s obscene

  • Mark

    Yes, thanks Roll Call at least you’ve paid attention to this issue while the rest of the media has left the long term unemployed in the shadows.

    • biggin

      Dems “lost interest”?! Thats nice, I lost my car, my bank account and my credit rating! These pompous pigs on both sides are out of control. Congress has become a dictatorship who only answers to corporations. Obama in the last 2 years of his presidency is useless. Articles like this make my blood boil! Every politician better watch their back, there are 3 million very ANGRY people out here sick of their games. I will NOT vote for any incumbent, good or bad, they ALL need to go! Dems should take another look at what they are “losing interest” in because for OVER 3 million people its a top damn priority!! Do you think we will see any kind of extension this year ?

      • Mark

        if the Democrats had been in control of the house you’d have everything as it should be.

        It’s the Republicans that have done this to you and the rest of us as well.
        Republicans have been trying to dismantle unemployment insurance since Roosevelt put it in place.

    • David

      Sebastian is a LOSER
      Pay no attention to this loser, he is the lowest of all humans. He even poses as a woman here … Valerieblanck. He is just a mental misfit.

  • Mark

    Republicans and John Boehner in particular are money grubbing evil people.

    That they would jump at the chance to send billions to Ukraine, give away billions in corporate welfare to U.S. companies all while they ignoring the plight of millions of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of U.S. Veterans.

    For those who would fault Democrats because they did’t try hard enough in the face of Republican obstruction need to check the facts.

    Republicans are responsible for this injustice.

    Republicans need to pay dearly in November.

    • Sand

      You are right, but Obama could have done it on his own and we have not heard anything from him in months

      • ArmedLiberal

        The President of the United States cannot spend money. Congress is in charge of the purse. Anyone who says different is misinformed or lying.

        • mrmano_0

          yes he can …you were already educated on this and you fail to learn…typical Libtard..glaze over the facts to espouse a factless ideology

          • ArmedLiberal

            as I said misinformed or lying. Show us the authorization of go get bent.

          • mrmano_0

            Congressional Budget Act of 1990…remember…gave the prez the authority to issue and executive order via the national emergency powers….get bent loser,

          • ArmedLiberal

            you can say Congressional Budget act I can say Unicorns exist.

            Show us the actual language that authorizes the President of the United States to do Congress’s job.

            Put up or shut up.

          • mrmano_0

            Research it, fool….its on the internet….you Libtards need spoon feeding all the time…

          • ArmedLiberal

            you’re the fool and liar. You don’t know what you’re talking about and I’m done with you.

            The President of the United States cannot spend one thin dime.

          • mrmano_0

            A failed Libtard unwilling to educate themselves on the facts…thus…you continue to have a factless ideology. The reason the prez has to use the national emergency powers is it gets around what you have posted…but…Obama does not think there is a national emergency on unemployment…so…unemployment is not a problem per you Lying King..get bent loser…and..thank you for not following me with my username troll.

          • ArmedLiberal

            you can’t show us that authorization can you?
            More lies and deception typical conservative approach.

            Can’t beat ‘em, lie.

          • mrmano_0

            All ya gotta do is use “google”…even a chimp with a sharpened pencil can do that….

          • ArmedLiberal

            put up or shut up.

            … you can’t no one believes you lies.

            The President cannot spend money. Congress is fully responsible for not extending unemployment.

          • mrmano_0

            Zzzz…Zzzz….worse than “end this Now”…and yer him…doubledumb

          • ArmedLiberal

            lol you can’t lie your way out of this one. You have nothing to offer but hyperbole and misinformation.

            You can’t show us evidence because it does not exist.

            The President of The United States cannot spend money without Congressional approval.

          • mrmano_0

            Here’s a little spoonfeeding idiot…maybe you can take it from here…its a snippet from a CSPAN article…you know…the media source your butt buddy Wayne swears by..

            September
            24, 1991

            Emergency Unemployment Compensation Bill

            The Senate debated S. 1722, the Unemployment
            Compensation bill, which would provide additional unemployment benefits to
            persons in certain… read
            more

            the president must sign the bill and declare a
            national emergency under the 1990 budget 

            The House bill passed the previous week contained provisions
            which would prevent the president from signing the legislation but not
            declaring a national emergency, which would be necessary under the 1990 budget
            act for the release of the funds . Such a declaration would have been necessary
            for the release of the funds for the benefits. under the 1990 budget act.

          • ArmedLiberal

            typical. No real information just a bunch of nothing.
            Show us you evidence!

            Conservatives have nothing but lies and partial truth nothing more.

            Show us exactly… oh that’s right you can’t.

            All you have is well NOTHING you have nothing.

            The President of the United States CANNOT spend money that is NOT authorized by Congress.

          • mrmano_0

            Typical libtard…glaze over facts and not do any independent research making them dependent on everything..like EUC…how does it feel to be not in control of your life??

          • Mark

            show has the exact authorization….
            go ahead I dare you.

            The President of the United States CANNOT spend money. That’s the job of Congress.

            It’s called checks and balances stupid sheesh.

            You really are dumb.

          • mrmano_0

            typical libtard sheeple…needs to be spoonfed..no desire to do independent research…illiterate more like it…show me the EXACT law that says he can’t…back it up!!..

        the budget was only uncontested because there was no extension in it. The do nothing Republican congress would not allow the extension to be put in the budget.

    Obama, being the wuss that he is, was so excited about the prospect of passing the budget, that he sold out and undermined the plight of the long-term unemployed by not including the extension in the budget bill. Now he is more concerned with illegal aliens than he is about American families caught up in this nightmare. So sad.

    • ArmedLiberal

      Republicans , rich boy Paul Ryan, said they would not allow a budget with an extension to pass. Republicans in the Senate forced the 12 month extension Democrats proposed down to 5 months. Republicans in Congress stalled and allowed the 5 month bill to expire without a vote.

      Obama is the President not the Emperor of the United States. He can’t force Republicans to do their jobs. Sheesh.

      • Frank

        Nonsense. The Republicans didn’t and couldn’t force a 12 month extension down to 5 months. Republicans refused to consider any extension after the bill was passed without the inclusion of the extension. Democrats proposed the 5 month extension after the bill was passed because they had nothing to barter with.

        • ArmedLiberal

          Sure they did, go back and check the facts. Democrats originally proposed a 12 month extension. They could not get the Republican support to pass it without tacking on poison pill amendments like Keystone XL approval and changes to the ACA. It wasn’t until the extension was negotiated down to 5 months with the payfors the House was demanding could the bill get the Republican support to pass the Senate.

          • Frank

            Look, if the Republicans negotiated the extension down to 5 months then why wasn’t a 5 month extension passed? Republicans refused to consider ANY extension. The Keystone pipeline was just one of the items that Republicans were hot for.

          • ArmedLiberal

            The bill failed to pass because Republicans never wanted it to pass..They were hot for Keystone and killing the ACA. It was all a ploy by Republicans to kill the extension.

          • Frank

            Right. So why do you say that a 5 month extension was negotiated? And, that the Republicans negotiated and forced it down to 5 months? Those are not the facts.

          • biggin

            the only fact is that our congress is greedy ba$tards and that is why we are suffering

          • ArmedLiberal

            Those are the fact. Harry Reid wanted a yearlong extension which was repeatedly fillibustered by Republicans because they could not add their poison pills
            A 5month bill was crafted with the support of 5 Republican Senators including Reed from NV and it passed.

            telling me what you think is not a fact….FACT: Demos did not put EUC in an uncontested budget. that’s a fact…..everything else around that is simply what you THINK..no facts..

          • Wayne Heddinger

            FACT: Why didn’t the Demos put EUC in the UNCONTESTED budget back in December???…is what you said…there was no FACT !

          • mrmano_0

            your reply said I didn’t ask you a question…please…follow your own posts…answer the question…

          • Wayne Heddinger

            NO FACT !…so NO QUESTION….you asked in your statement why democrats didn’t put UI in UNCONTESTED…..but it was contested in committee and was pulled out so that a budget can pass both senate and house….but you insist it didn’t happen when it did !

          • Wayne Heddinger

            my first response to you answered you and proved that you didn’t make a factual statement along with it !…learn to read !

        • Wayne Heddinger

          the 5 month bill is a republican bill…the republicans blocked the democrat 6 month bill saying 6 months was too long…go read facts !

          • Frank

            There are some very uninformed people on this blog. Harry Reid proposed the 5 month extension. No one else. The Dems were weak after failing to include the extension in the budget bill. You look it up.

          • Wayne Heddinger

            yea…that would you !….you have the wrong Reid…Harry Reid came up with a 6 month extension that was blocked by 1 vote. Jack Reed and Hiller created the 5 Month extension because one of the reasons the republicans blocked the first one was because they didn’t want it 6 months or longer. you are the uninformed here !

          • Frank

            Heller, not Hiller. And, no, I was referring to Reid, the Senate majority leader. Reid proposed it. Reed and Heller crafted it.

          • Wayne Heddinger

            NOPE !…you are wrong…..each bill is a different bill number…forst was the 12 month…then the 6 month…both failed to get the votes….republicans came up with the 5 month bill with Reed and Heller pushing it.

          • Mark

            do you have any idea how Congress works??

          • David

            Mark, you are the only one among us who has a clue, or at least that is what you believe. Again, hiding behind your computer and lashing out at others will only make you feel worse about yourself. Maybe your good friend Boehner can help or at least you two can cry together.

          • ArmedLiberal

            You are incorrect. Harry Reid proposed a yearlong extension. It was Jack Reed from Nevada that proposed the 5 month extension when Reid’s 12 month extension could not pass the Senate Republican opposition.

            Didn’t you read the link I posted?

          • Frank

            And then Reid quickly put his tail between his legs and begged for 5 months with the idea that he would pursue a longer extension later.

          • ArmedLiberal

            Nope. Incorrect. Repeated Republican fillibusters ate what forced the bill down to five months.

          • Wayne Heddinger

            you are a dumbass !…Reid’s bill was filibustered and thus became dead due to the 6 month idea. Before that he had one that was for a year and it was blocked also. Then Reed and Heller with other Senate Republicans (enough who agreed to vote yes) crafted the 5 month bill and it passed with the very same republicans who crafted it….go learn something buddy !

          • Wayne Heddinger

            that reply was for Frank the stupid one…. !

          • Frank

            It’s obvious that you are uneducated. But now you are also insulting, so go play with your toys and stay quiet. You will be ignored by me.

          • Wayne Heddinger

            get real…as it shows by all the comments to you that you are the one who cant comprehend the facts. too funny that you are in the minority here….so maybe it is you who should go away.

          • Cornelius Ibbotson

            Jack Reed is from RI, buster!

          • ArmedLiberal

            I stand corrected I was confusing him with Heller from NV.

          • mrmano_0

            Idiot…what else are you confused about…all your usernames??

          • ArmedLiberal

            shut up and go die idiot troll you have nothing to offer to this conversation but lies and discontent. Sounds like evil to me. you’ll end up in hell unless you change your ways.

          • Mark

            You have no facts. never have facts. here’s a fact for you troll. EUC is DOA. get a job,. loser

          • David

            Mark, the question that comes to mind is how often did the girls on your block beat you up as a kid? Your need to lash out at others while you hide behind your computer is evidence that there are other issues you are not dealing with. You can overcome these issues with professional help. Lashing out at others while you hide like a whimp will only make you feel worse about yourself. We all want the best for you and we believe you can be a better person.

    Just a Bunch Of Hot Air from all of them. We the people are tired of all the B.S. that has come across in the past 5 Months, They get their pay checks. The Government can’t go out of Business like my Company did,to put me on the Unemployed line.
    I never knew that people in the Ukraine meant more then me and all the other’s out there. I think they got,What 800 Million Dollars sent in one day? This Just kills me. Speaker Boehner is a Big Piece Of……….. I hope he suffers some like we have.

  • jujubee

    The Gov’t doesn’t take care of the people in need. At least unemployment should of covered the people that were originally supposed to get the unemployment in 2014. Just like a person has to pay back a loan, the Gov’t should not be allowed to make changes to something that was stated. People are paying attention to who is making these decisions.

  • Wayne Heddinger

    Contact John Boehner and have him move the extended
    unemployment bill forward.If the tax break bill moves forward then attach the
    unemployment bill Senate passed last month. 3-4Million lost benefits, 75,000
    added weekly and 200,000 war veterans. These benefits need to be extended
    without delay.

    The bottom line is: The Dems tried to bargain from a position of weakness after failing to include the extension in the budget. After that, the Republicans, predictably, scoffed at any and all proposals brought forth by the Dems with regard to any extensions. The Dems should have known better.

    • ArmedLiberal

      So you’re going to blame Democrats for not trying hard enough yet excuse the Republicans for outright obstructing the passing of an extension?

      • Frank

        Not all all. The Republicans are a poison to all that this country and the Democratic process stands for. They should be detested.

  • voltaic

    GOP feed the rich and starve the poor and middle class economic policies continue to do damage to so many. GOP actually cut unemployment benefits to 270,000 plus veterans, and GOP says they support veterans….

    GOP case nothing about those 3 million struggling job seeker families. GOP is more concered about giving the wealthy another huge, budget busting tax cut. Do not expect GOP to help the poor and middle class.

  • Jazzy

    Frustrated in AZ.

    Folks, this is genocide on the lower and middle class. For five months we’ve been told exactly what Cory Booker stated in his tweet – It’s not over.. It’s over.

    During that time we’ve held on to hope. Meaning we sold our belongings, borrowed from friends, stole if we had too, all in the name of hope, hope that these jerk off leader would show us the support we EUC deserved, earned, and fought for.

    EUC victims were profiled, stripped down mentality and resourcefully. This is war. The atrocities will always be remembered.

    Starving on Sunday night isn’t going to help me come Monday. Rent that is due today, I don’t have it. I have been scrapping on saving for 5 months.

    This just goes to show you how out of touch Congress is with the Citizens they are supposed to be representing, the media also! Everywhere I turn, I see another family in a struggle, Another long time worker losing a job to cut back on salary and benefits who are now losing everything they have worked for. This includes Veterans who are part of the unemployed after serving!. Trying to find another job? Difficult! They will show you the proof of that by the documented job interviews they have been to! Many business’ are not hiring full time staff anymore to cut back, and you just cut off there resources to pay Cobra for Insurance many need for a sick family member, There are no benefits for part time workers and the salary isn’t enough for private Insurance, and too much for government Insurance. What do you think they have to do? They have to choose between medication food, or a home. These are the facts! People will die or become homeless in a land that has taxed their payroll including state and federal which clearly states a portion of those taxes are used for the Unemployment program! They believed in a Government, in a system that not only failed them, but will give those funds to another Country an forfeit their lives, Where are those funds? If Congress is allowed to do this and every American stays quiet, what do you think they will do with Social Security? Another fund paid by the American Tax Payers through payroll. If you can not survive without it, too bad! These people are not surviving either. These people who have worked in and for thi country for many years. They are not lazy! They are not asking for a handout! They are asking for the Insurance they paid into, week after week, year after year, and trusted their Government to provide if and when they couldn’t and not for lack of trying! These people are disillusioned, they are scared, and they counted on all of you to fight for not only them, premise of what this and used to stand for! Since when can congress ignore a dying American? Where is the media coverage on this? I have seen, heard and read some horrifying stories of what is happening to these people that to me, deserves front page coverage! and Superman! Dean Cain! Mr. You take that job! Your such an expert on all of this, I have a few people who would like to know just what to forfeit when they do! Their medication? Food? or their home! We do not live in fantasy land, and you are ignorant! I challenge you to a debate! If you can fix this, Ill say I’m wrong! The people in Congress, you have blood on your hands You have sold out! Mr President! Why don’t you trade 5 illegal Aliens back to where they came so one American can live!

    I’m 50 years old and been unemployed since October. I write carefully crafted letters and targeted resumes to at least 5 to 10 jobs a week and I’ve only been called in for two interviews in this time period. I have more than 30 years of experience in my field but employers don’t want that. They want someone who is younger and who doesn’t need a lot of money to live on. I have no prospects but I keep applying every week. I also keep applying for my unemployment that expired in late March. I want to make sure there is are a record that I’m still unemployed and still looking for a job. I just don’t understand why the Republicans in Congress don’t feel I’m as worthy as anyone else in this nation when I need help.

    • Mark

      I think you’re confusing lack of focus with down right objection and obstruction. Minimum wage is a bigger more popular issue, many more people are affected by that.

      There is no doubt in my mind that if Democrats had been in control of the House that this would not even be an issue right now.

      Make no mistake Republicans are the problem and they need to go.

      • Mark

        “It’s something the Democrats have been pushing for on the Hill, but hasn’t been a huge deal in some of these races. If Democrats are looking for an economic argument they think minimum wage is a more popular thing.”

        • Sebastian Klay

          You are just about where you need to be.

          Democrats haven’t forgotten the long term unemployed. Far from it. They’re just further highlighting the fact that Republicans hate the middle and working classes.

          Republicans hate how this great nation has used the federal government to support that middle and working class and make our country a liviable place for all her citizens.

          Republicans truly are America’s worst enemy foreign or domestic.
          I see that now thanks to the liberals on these boards.

    One day the people will get fed up with Boehner and physically remove him from office. This is all due to the fact Boehner takes orders from the Koch brothers who have instructed Boehner to not allow this to pass. Hence Boehner will not allow it to come to vote as he knows his own party has turned oh him and they will vote to pass the bill. How long will we accept the fact that one man is obstructing justice and is hurting good American citizens? If Obama were to sign off today on the Boehner/Koch brothers Keystone XL Pipeline then Boehner would allow it to come to vote. Screw that, Boehner gets nothing … the Boehner/Koch Pipeline stands to line Boehner’s pockets with dirty cash. One day someone will get fed up with Boehner and not just threaten his life but hopefully end it for him. That will be a day of celebration for our country. This scum has stood in the way of progress long enough.

  • David

    SCREW BOEHNER BY GOING ON WELFARE PERMANENTLY
    You can enjoy many more benefits than unemployment ever gave you by going on welfare. How would you like to get free housing, free medical, dental and eyeglass coverage, free cell phone, free food and some spending cash to name a few of the benefits. Show Boehner that if he wants to turn his back on you that there are ways around him. Apply today and prove to him that there is more than one way to skin a cat or a Boehner.

  • David

    When the Somali pirates took American hostages we terminated their lives in short order. Boehner is holding three million American’s as political hostages and nobody cares, When the people get tired of B.S. politics we can take back what was once ours before crooked politicans took over America. Ask yourself what do you have to lose today … nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    When the people fear their government, there is a tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.- Thomas Jefferson
    Our government has no fear of the people they are supposed to be serving. That must change if we ever expect the truth from politicans.

  • David

    The ranks of the unemployed are now over three million strong and growing daily. That is a lot of people … our military combined isn’t three million strong. There isn’t much that three million people can’t accomplish. If just a portion of the unemployed were to show up at the White House it would get this situation much needed media attention.

            Actions will always speak louder than words.

      • David

        This issue is not about democrats or republicans, it is about Boehner obstructing justice and causing harm to millions of American’s to satisfy the Koch brothers. If this issue were to go to vote by the people it will pass by overwhelming numbers. It is only those with no fear of ever losing their jobs that do not support this program. Look in your local newspaper to see how many jobs are available today. Many of the jobs on Craigslist are people looking to replace someone already in their employment. It is just a free media that allows employers to constantly be looking to replace people that are already employed.
        If you want new jobs try this on … lock Boehner and Obama in a room for a fight to the death. Put it on pay-per-view and use the funds collected to pay the unemployed. I am sure there are millions that would pay to see Boehner cry again and die a slow painful death, Boehner’s only idea of job creation is to get the Boehner/Koch brothers Keystone XL Pipeline approved so he can line his pockets with dirty cash. Boehner is a poor excuse for a man and should not be in charge of anything more than toilets.

Do you believe that the citizens should take our country back or just allow crooked politicans to ruin your life?

  • David

    We need droves of the unemployed to show up at welfare offices all over the country. Boehner is expecting you to live off relatives or anyone else you can borrow from. Screw him and the country that has turned it’s back on you. Apply fo welfare and take a permanent vacation on Boehner and Uncle Sammy.

    Thank the Koch brothers for instructing Boehner to NOT allow this this bill to come to a vote. Thank them for wanting their Boehner/Koch Keystone XL Pipeline enough to hold three million American’s hostage. Don’t buy anything with the Georgia Pacific logo on it as these are Koch brothers companies. The Koch brothers are as much to blame as Boehner is. The only difference is that the people voted Boehner in. The Koch brothers force their will on politicans with money contributions. Boehner will burn in hell for selling out the American unemployed.

    After failing to support the UE extension, the Republicans have
    absolutely no credibility when it comes to the best interest of the
    middle class. They are the first congress in the history of this
    country to fail to do so when the long-term unemployment rate is as high
    as it is and they have significantly contributed to it being this long.
    At least the Democratic party was willing to support those who needed
    assistance which included Democrats, Republicans and Independents making
    up a population the size greater than most states. If anyone think
    this will be forgotten, they are making a big mistake.

    Cash Abroad Rises $206 Billion as Apple to IBM Avoid Tax
    By Richard Rubin Mar 12, 2014 1:47 PM CT
    The largest U.S.-based companies added $206 billion to their stockpiles of offshore profits last year, parking earnings in low-tax countries until Congress gives them a reason not to.
    The multinational companies have accumulated $1.95 trillion outside the U.S., up 11.8 percent from a year earlier, according to securities filings from 307 corporations reviewed by Bloomberg News. Three U.S.-based companies — Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), Apple Inc. and International Business Machines Corp. — added $37.5 billion, or 18.2 percent of the total increase.

    This really isn’t a matter of democrats or republicans, it is Boehner that is obstructing justice by taking orders from the Koch brothers. How many lives have been ruined by Boehner not doing the right thing so he can have the continued support of the Koch brothers. When will the people come before cash contributions? Is it too late for our country or does anyone want to stand up and fight for what is right? The Koch brothers are not supposed to run this country.

    Screw Boehner By Going On Welfare Today
    If he wants to obstruct justice and stand in the way of the unemployment bill, this is a way to get around him. You will have many more benefits on welfare compared to unemployment. Free housing, free medical, dental and eyeglass coverage, free cell phone and free food to name a few of the benefits, Show Boehner that if he wants to turn his back on you that there are ways around him.

  • biggin

    Dems “lost interest”?! Thats nice, I lost my car, my bank account and my credit rating! These pompous pigs on both sides are out of control. Congress has become a dictatorship who only answers to corporations. Obama in the last 2 years of his presidency is useless. Articles like this make my blood boil! Every politician better watch their back, there are 3 million very ANGRY people out here sick of their games. I will NOT vote for any incumbent, good or bad, they ALL need to go! Dems should take another look at what they are “losing interest” in because for OVER 3 million people its a top damn priority!

    • DJMiles

      They had no interest of passing a unemployment extension ever …..The day Obama said he won’t insist of a unemployment extension in the Dec budget deal was him saying to Congress let’s end EUC

            “Republicans on Friday suggested the benefits aren’t needed after a November jobs report showed the economy added 204,000 jobs last month, while the unemployment rate dropped to 7 percent, the lowest rate since November 2008.”

            “The Administration supports House passage of H. J. Res. 59 – Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. The legislation would replace a portion of the across-the-board sequester that has harmed students, seniors, and middle-class families and has served as a drag on the Nation’s economy over the last year. The legislation would allow for critical investments in areas such as education, infrastructure, and scientific research, while keeping the Nation on the path to long-term deficit reduction. The legislation includes targeted fee increases and spending cuts designed in a way that does not hurt the Nation’s economy or the Federal Government’s commitments to seniors.
            The Administration urges the Congress to pass this bipartisan agreement and looks forward to working with the Congress to enact clean, full-year FY 2014 appropriations bills based on this agreement in order to continue growing the Nation’s economy and creating jobs. In addition, the Congress should extend unemployment insurance before it expires at the end of this year so more than a million Americans looking for work do not lose a vital economic lifeline right after the holidays, and the Nation’s economy does not suffer.”

            You say Republicans so I assume you mean all Republicans? You are aware that the 5 month extension that just expired on June 1 st was authored by Republicans on March 9th! I assume your also aware that John Boehner and dozens of house Republicans support extending unemployment even after Democrats left it out of the budget providing it’s paid for and contains 1 job creation measure with means 1 of the 45 house passed jobs bills or the Democrats could have offered their own but failed to do either. …I’m sure your also aware that Senate Republicans tried their hardest to get a jobs bill attached before voting on the unemployment bill but Democrats denied them….John Boehner made several attempts to seek a compromise but Obama refused…He even went as far as telling the white house that since Senate Democrats refuse to attach a jobs bill or create 1 of their own he is still willing to extend unemployment if Obama would just list what job creation measures they would find acceptable for him to attach to the bill! Obama said no to that also saying he’s not willing to compromise at all on extending unemployment. http://www.examiner.com/article/white-house-refuses-boehner-gop-unemployment-benefits-extension-bill-compromise

            Here is a good one…H.R 872 Reduce government Regulations on small businesses…
            Wow another great bill H.R 9 Small business tax cut act… Here is one for our Vets H.R 2433 Veterans opportunity to work act…I give that one a A+ !
            Here is one for the Democrats that believe all immigrants should be legal….H.R 3012 Fairness for highly skilled immigrants act.
            One of my favorites H.R 6169 a A simpler, fairer tax code act …
            Here is one we all wish the Senate would finally allow a vote on H.R 4078 Red tape reduction and small business job creation act I love that one!

    ALL THE TALK IN THE WORLD WON’T GET EMERGENCY UNEMPLOYMENT BACK, IT WILL TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES. THERE IS NO BETTER DAY TO DIE THAN TODAY FOR A WORTHY CAUSE. I WILL GLADLY OFFER MY LIFE FIRST FOR THIS CAUSE.

  • David

    There was once a time when I offered my life to defend my country in the USMC. In retrospect now I can see that was a mistake on my part. I thought at that time that our country would always have my back covered. It turns out there was no truth to that statement. America has turned it’s back on the unemployed which strips me of the pride I once had.

  • DJMiles

    I’ve tried telling everyone since December that this was just a political game the Democrats are playing and nobody wanted to listen….Almost 6 months later still no EUC but the great president Obama has signed a lot of other bills into law like the Republicans $900,000,000,000 farm bill yet none of you have the intelligence to figure out that both house and Senate Democrats could have held their votes on Republican priorities unless a unemployment extension was attached! Democrats control the Senate so the could have attached 1 themselves and sent it back to the house ! Let’s not forget the must pass Doc fix or Omnibus both were must pass and unemployment could have been attached. …Obama signed the Republicans $900 billion dollar farm bill and easily could have said no signature until unemployment is restored! Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have been attaching priorities to must pass bills for as long as their has been a congress hard to believe they forgot a dozen times this year.lets wait another 6 months and see what happens.

    • mrmano_0

      You’re a shill for the right and a liar. That’s what you’ve been doing since December. Lying and trolling

      • DJMiles

        Lying? It’s been 6 months are you saying that the Democrats who control the Senate and the President Cant Get A 9.2 Billion Dollar unemployment extension passed? Congress has passed well over a trillion dollars worth of bills since January and Obama signed them all without ever demanding or even requesting unemployment be renewed….Thankfully 99% of Americans understand that this is just a political game or nobody would ever vote for a Democrat again….Imagine a president that can’t get anything accomplished except for all the priorities of the Republican party

        • mrmano_0

          Yep lying and carrying the Republican banner.
          If you knew anything about the way this country worked you would know what checks and balances were.

          The President can’t force the Speaker to hold a vote.

          John Boehner has held up the prosperity of millions of Americans and 99% of the American people can see that Republicans are the problem.

          Go visit Boehner Facebook page and see for yourself.
          You van lie to yourself all you like. But you can’t lie to anyone else.

          • DJMiles

            Really the President can’t say he’s not signing a $900,000,000,000 Republican priority unless unemployment is restored? Everyone should definitely vote Republican in 2016 then cause if our Democrat president has no ability to do anything at all even use a phone or respond to Boehners attempts at a compromise then we’re paying him for nothing. …Bush didn’t have the same problems guess that’s why things got accomplished.

  • David

    Boehner’s only real concern is getting the Boehner/Koch brothers Keystone XL Pipeline approved before the Koch brothers find someone else to do their dirty work and stop their cash contributions away.

  • David

    SCREW BOEHNER BY GOING ON WELFARE PERMANENTLY and enjoy many more benefits like free housing, free medical, dental and eyeglass coverage, free cell phone, free food and some spending cash to name a few of them. Droves of the unemployed are taking this route. You do not have to go without because of Boehner. This will show him there is more than one way to not get the job done.

  • David

    Not that any politican tells the truth but Boehner is the king of lies. Maybe when he becomes his own man and no longer takes orders from the Koch brothers then he will possibly be capable of standing up straight and tall. He is a poor excuse for a man and should not be in charge of anything but the toilets.

    “I do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they’re paid for. If you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers, When you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks [sic], you’re causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy.”

    • DJMiles

      Come November I have a interest in voting them out….Would have been so much better if they just said in December that their ending the program instead of trying to put the blame on the Republicans…

  • DJMiles

    Obama now says that since the economy has recovered so drastically since December everyone is retiring early…..The incredible drop in the unemployment rate has absolutely nothing to do with 3 million people no longer be counted as actively seeking work.

    • mrmano_0

      You’re as bad as the rest of the Conservative trolls on here full of lie and deception.

      • DJMiles

        Nope your wrong….I don’t like either party and would love too see them all replaced and especially the President who has accomplished nothing at all….But when we talk about the unemployment extension we have to blame who is responsible and that is the Democrats who ended it in December when it didn’t make their priority list for the budget… and then voted for over a trillion dollars worth of Republican priorities without ever demanding unemployment be extended in exchange for their vote.

        • Frank

          I’m a Democrat start to finish but I agree that the Dems dropped the ball by not including the extension in the budget bill. They should have known better.

          • DJMiles

            I was a Democrat too until they played this game with the unemployed…. People could make all the excuses they want for Obama and the Democrats but if you followed this since December it’s easy to see their plan from day 1 was to end euc but not take 100% of the blame for it….Come November the unemployed just won’t vote so neither party will be effected

          • Frank

            I’m not sure that this was the Dems plan from day 1 but in Washington you protect what is important to the party. The Dem party did not do anything to protect the long-term unemployed and predictable results prevailed.

          • DJMiles
          • Frank

            That was then, this is now. Maybe the Dems got a little too comfortable with the lower unemployment numbers without having to carry around the baggage of 3,000,000 long-term unemployed to drive the numbers back up. Even (R) Dean Heller said that he was shocked by the Dems lack of support when trying to craft UI to bills favored by Republicans.

          • DJMiles

            We could keep saying that was then when we talk about the farm bill, Doc fix, Omnibus, budget deal, water info structure bill etc But the point is congress passed them all without Democrats attaching unemployment and their going to continue to pass bills so it’s clear they don’t have any interest in extending unemployment

          • Frank

            Agreed and disappointed.

          • left wing

            so YOU just want “unemployment” for life? it is welfare at this point, get a JOB

          • DJMiles

            No I don’t want it for life ….It’s just not possible to replace a job in 3 months during this Obama crisis ! It’s hard to understand until you experience it for yourself but I assure you the job market today is a lot worse then it was even 3 years ago…Obama could fake the numbers all he wants but the reality is only 62% of working age Americans are currently employed and that’s the rate that really counts.

        • mrmano_0

          You’re wrong. This President saved the country from the ruin of the last. If you can’t see that then you’re a simple minded fool.

          Republicans have held up the unemployment extension. No amount of your lies and half truths will change that fact.

          • DJMiles

            What did he save? Unemployment is at record high, labor participation rate lowest in 40 years, personal Debt highest on record, gas prices 96% higher then Bush, National Debt 17 trillion &expected to double that by 2016, house hold income down 3.8%…..I could go on for hours but you get the point he’s definitely a winner

          • mrmano_0

            No liar we were in a tail spin when W left office. The country was on the brink. Obama saved the auto industry. Provided Americans with affordable healthcare. He will forever be remembered as one of the best. While you, well no one cares.

            Look you can lie to yourself all you like. But the majority of us can see the truth. You’re a fool and a a liar.

    We still need stories of the unemployed until a change is made to the way this country is run!

    We need them for November so we don’t forget!

    We need to let the government know that tax extensions are to be made no longer!

    We need to let the government know that no more of our tax dollars are to be given to other countries unless it is paid for and the People of this Great Country come first 1st!

    Our government politicians need to be held accountable for everything they do!

    Congress and the senate rules need to be changed where there are three and not one that makes the decisions as to whether something is to be voted on!

    This and much much more needs to be done! We need to send a message to Washington D.C. that we have there number, we are as mad as hell and we are not going to take it any more!

  • David

    If by some chance you apply for welfare and don’t get it, consider doing a federal crime. If you investigate federal prisons they are actually a better situation for many of the long term unemployed. You will then have free medical, dental and eyeglass coverage, three meals a day, cable tv and internet services. The best part is that you can’t get evicted. No more shut off notices, repossessions or foreclosures. Give it some consideration … just another way to get a paid vacation compliments of Boehner and Uncle Sammy Boy.

    • left wing

      poor little insane lefty welfare leech. get a job

        Naw….he’s a big ex_marine with a military pension… lying piece of garbage..

      • David

        I wish you had the balls to say that to my face but you hide behind your computer screen like the whimp you are. I am a former US Marine that at one point in time was willing to give my life for your freedom. What have you done for this country?

        • David

          Just keep hiding because that is all you are capable of.

      • David

        Watch Boehner cry like a little girl who just wet her pants:


        Worship your fearless leader lefty.

      • David

        Were you the little boy on your block who got beat up at least once a week and that is why you feel you need to lash out at others. Hide behind your computer screen and try to poke at others, your daddy must not be proud of you.

        • Mark

          Sorry about your penis, davy…

          • David

            You must have the one ip address that can’t be tracked … or at least you think so .Keep playing little boy and you may meet your match. Push the issue and see what happens, I have nothing to lose. Having a former US Marine as an ememy is probably more than you can handle.

      • David

        Lefty, how often did the girls on your block beat you up? You can get help for your disorders no matter how deeply you are scarred. Lashing out at others from behind your computer won’t help and probably doesn’t make you feel good about yourself. I forgive you for lashing out at me but even more I hope you get the help you need.

        • David

          :)

          • David

            Lefty, there are many places that will work with you on your personal issues. It is too late to do anything about the women that have abused you. I have faith that you will be a better person once you get help.

          • David

            Lefty, hopefully you do not take your aggression out on women and hurt them like you have been hurt. It won’t take away your pains, it will only make you a worse person than you already are. Enjoy your day and seek help.

  • Comfort Roberts

    Its Truly Amazing !!!! How our government can send billions of American dollars to a foreign nation in an attempt to show our support to help then gain control of their doomed economy but yet no one in Washington is willing to take care of those right here in this wonderful county called America.
    Lets FIRE All The ELECTED OFFICIALS and put real people in the spots who will actually fight the real fight.

      that means voteing out all dems, and reps and go independent vote for yourselves?????

    Aaarrgghh..THE DEMOCRATS have further forgotten about the unemployed replacing them with the min wage initiative. We’ve been forgotten about by the democrats!!!…..but…I don’t want to go find a job!!!

    http://www.inquisitr.com/1278404/unemployment-extension-2014-democrats-lose-interest-in-extending-benefits-due-to-the-mid-term-elections/

    Kyle Kondik, director of communications for the University of Virginia’s Center on Politics, agrees that Democrats are looking to other issues for the 2014 mid-term elections:

    “It’s something the Democrats have been pushing for on the Hill, but hasn’t been a huge deal in some of these races. If Democrats are looking for an economic argument they think minimum wage is a more popular thing.”

    SCREW BOEHNER BY GOING ON WELFARE TODAY

    • left wing

      YOU are already on welfare.

      • David

        Lefty, you are just a little man who was probably beat up once a week by the girls in your neighborhood. You feel a need to lash out at others because of issues within yourself. You would not talk your trash if you were standing in front of me. Go on kidding yourself that your opinions matter, tell it to your friend Boehner.

  • David

    If not anything else today have a few laughs at Boehner’s expense by watching this youtube video of him whimpering like a child on many occasions. This is not a man that should be representing anything but alcoholism.

    • wanda jefferson

      crying because he forgot to drink that morning.

  • David
  • David

    Boehner represents alcoholism at it’s best. This is someone who represents this country. To say this country has gone to hell in a hand basket, does not even come close to telling the whole story. Men (whimps) like him are to blame for much of whats wrong today. Why does he not cry about the good citizens that have lost their homes due to his crooked politics. He probably beats his wife too.

    • Frank

      Doesn’t say much for Obama and the rest of the Dems that they can’t overcome a punch drunk alcoholic who holds the House and 3,000,000 deserving and needy long-term unemployed hostage.

      • David

        I will never be one to stand up for any politican as they are all crooked and crave money and power. Boehner just happens to be the worst of the worst and certainly is not in office with the best interest of the people in mind. I just love watching him cry like a little girl who wet her pants, he probably does that too. Not much of a man where I am from. It is no wonder he never offered his services to our military, he would not have made it even in the Army.

        • left wing

          poor davvy, worships his messiah and posts the hate and lies it’s master tells it to post

          • David

            You are just scum and I will get your address. When I do it is all over for you. I am willing to rot in jail to take care of you. You messed with the wrong person.

    • left wing

      no, that would BE YOU and your insane democratic party buddies.

      • David

        Call Boehner today and see how much he cares about you and your $10.00 dollar contribution. You are just another LOSER to him.

      • David

        Lefty, I actually feel kind of sorry for you and regret confronting your issues online. I too have faults but do not have the need to lash out at others. Maybe one day you will seek professional help and we can get along better.

      • David

        The fact is you are going to have me for a visitor and it won’t be fun for you. I am going to urinate on you as you cry pleading for your scum life. Nobody wants you here aggrivating good people. You are just pure scum. LOSER. Time to remove you permanently.

    • wanda jefferson

      funny but probably true the wife beating I mean but I want to know who can vote bonehead out of office and the next rep. to can someone tell me how that is done ???

  • David

    Screw Boehner by applying for welfare. If he does not want to pay your unemployment benefits then this will show him that there are ways around him. Your country has left you for dead, take it for all you can. Apply today to save you and your family any further suffering becasue of Boehner.

    • left wing

      it is welfare at this point, the unemployment benefits paid in by the employers have been spent. but never let FACTS bother an insane lefty as it posts what it’s master told it to post.

      • David

        Again little man, you would not talk your trash if you were in front of me. But little people like to talk real big when hiding behind a computer screen.

        • Mark

          Dumb as a fence post…ummm..gee…who’s talking trash hiding behind a computer screen???…listen, bart…you been embarrassed and humiliated for months..please…don’;t make me do it again…you are the epitome of a coward. you couldn’t beat your way ..or..think your way out of a wet paper bag….best part of you…ran down your momma’s leg ..and..probably out her mouth too..

          • David

            Well you now have an enemy that looks at every day as a good day to die … good luck.

      • David

        For those of us who are questioning why lefty here is so rotten to the core it is most likely because he was beat up by the girls in his neighborhood as a child. There is also the possibility that his mother abused him as well. He feels a need to hide behind his computer screen like a coward and poke at others. Probably wet the bed until he was fifteen years old. There is also the possiblity that his daddy didn’t love him and he could never get over that. We all hope you get the help you so badly need. Good luck to you, you don’t always have to be a loser if you get help.

  • Mark

    Republicans and their paid bully trolls have shown us all what they are all about.

    Lie, obfuscate the truth, and launch baseless ad hominem attacks.

    It’s sad really but not having valid points or a feasible plan leaves few options but childish tantrums and juvenile bullying.

    • left wing

      the insane lefty claiming that the pubs act just like IT

      • Mark

        Thanks for proving my point.

  • Frank

    According to NBC news, there is a movement amongst Republicans to oust John Boehner as Speaker. Before you get too excited, it is thought that his successor will be Eric Cantor.

    Sure, Republicans can continue to offer up the bum of the month as House speaker. None are likely to be any worse than Boehner. Look at how Boehner has denied a vote to take place in the House to pass a Senate approved unemployment extension for 3,000,000 long-term unemployed and their families. Most of us have friends and family who are suffering and left destitute because of his refusal to allow a vote which would easily pass the house.

    • left wing

      at this point it is no longer unemployment. it is just welfare, a government handout to those who refuse to work.

    Watch Boehner cry like a little girl who just wet her pants, link provided


    This is a good laugh but it is a poor representation of our country to have this man in charge of anything more than the toilets.

  • David

    Maybe he can clean the Koch brothers toilets when he gets booted out of office.

  • David

    As droves of the long term unemployed turn out at welfare offices across the country it is becoming more clear that this was probably not the best choice to not continue emergency unemployment. Boehner is losing his bargaining powers quickly. Who needs Boehner when Uncle Sammy Boy will fund your permanent vacation. Your country has turned it’s back on you, take what you can get and enjoy it.

  • David

    When Boehner is speaking about job creation he is referring to the Boehner/Koch brothers Keystone XL Pipeline that stands to line his pockets with dirty cash for years to come.
    If he wants job creation try this on for size …
    Lock Boehner and Obama in a room for a fight to the death and put it on pay-per-view. I am sure there are millions more like me that would pay to watch Boehner die a slow painful death while he cries. Use the money raised to foot the unemployment bill and there will be money left over to tip Boehner’s family. He is putting millions of the long term unemployed through a slow painful death.

  • David

    David –

    We wanted to say thank you to our supporters (you guys!) for being part of the fight to win a Democratic House for President Obama this year.

    As a token of our appreciation we’re giving away as many “I Love Obamacare” stickers as we can before supplies run out.

    The real shame of this column is that we are all American’s and should be more tollerable with one another. If the truth is told none of us mean anything to the politicans of any party. Politicans do not have our best interest in mind and they thrive on us batteling with ourselves instead of with them. Maybe one day we can all agree to make our politicans responsible and more transparent. In the end we will all win when that takes place. Until then they are in their world and we are in ours. In the famous words of Rodney King … “Can’t we all just get along”

  • David

    Could you imagine if we the people were to band together and demand a new type of government where the voice of the people was not only heard but adhered to. Politicans were held to a new standard where they were held accountable to the people and transparency was the only way business was done. No more behind closed door meetings and certainly no more lobbyists to line their pockets to get dirty work done. Where politicans actually worked for the people.

    • Frank

      Sounds like these could have been lyrics in John Lennon’s IMAGINE.

  • David

    The bad thing here is that we are all American’s and should band together against the crooked politicans and not fight with one another. This is exactly what they want is for us to battle with one another and not confront them. There is no one party better than another in this and most cases it is just a matter of perception. Although it is Boehner that continues to stand in the way of this coming to vote, Obama has not even picked up the phone to speak to Boehner about this issue and in the end is no better than Boehner to the unemployed. If the citizens of this country had a chance to vote on this bill it would pass by overwhelming numbers. Nobody really wants to think that a friend or neighbor is doing without food or having their home foreclosed on during their hardship. Try to remember when speaking to one another here that we are all American’s and need to have more tollerance with one another. Lashing out is not going to accomplish anything and will only make people feel worse than they already do. One day we will all meet our maker and have to explain some of our actions, be they good or bad.

  • George Kato

    The US government’s debt on January 20, 2014 was over 17.2 trillion dollars.

    • erick

      7.7 trillion of the debt was from the wall street bail out. Pass HR 1579 the “Inclusive Prosperity Act of 2013″. This will impose a financial transaction tax on wall street stock trades. This will greatly reduce the debt.

    quote from a person called “me” 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.

  • David

    Amazing how Thomas Jefferson saw that men like Boehner would take advantage of their position and the people he is supposed to be serving. How is it this man can get away with his corrupt political agenda? Becasue corrupt is the standard in politics. Take a couple of minutes to read what this wise man saw coming long ago. It will take a civil war to restore our political system. Boehner should be publically executed for the harm he has done to good American citizens and to our economy.

    The vote on the EUC bill should be done by the people and not crooked politicans. It is the people that pay for the bill and not politicans. If this bill were to go to vote by the people it would pass by overwhelming numbers. Instead Boehner gets to think for the people and cheat us any way he can.

    For anyone here not familiar with the troll or trouble maker of the room he goes by multiple user names here such as Sebastain Klay, Left wing, articulate and clean, biff wellington, mrmanno and even uses a female name Valerieblanck … yes it even poses as a woman. He only comes here to aggrivate you and to try to get under your skin. Ignore him and he finds others to pester. If anyoine can assist me in obtaining his address I will rid us of him permanently. Do not allow him to bother you or to interupt your day.

  • David

    Why would anyone in their right frame of mind want to come in to this room and argue with fellow American’s that are down on their luck. It would take someone who is not right in the mind to want to aggrivate someone else who has never harmed them in any way. Sebastian Klay is that person and he only comes here to get under your skin and to give you problems. Help me to get his home address and I will change his attitude real fast. He is a worthless human with real issues within himself that need professional help to get over them. Pay him no attention and he will find another thread to bother people in. He uses multiple names such as Left wing, mrmanno, articulate and clean and even Valerieblanck … yes he even poses as a woman. You have to know his daddy can’t be proud of him.

  • David

    Boehner sucks

  • David

    When the Somali pirates tried taking American hostages we terminated their lives in short order. How does Boehner get away with holding over three million American political hostages? Maybe he needs to be taken out … actually there is no maybe to it, he is harming good American citizens.

  • David

    When the troll and trouble maker of this room shows up today he goes by many user names here such as Mrmanno, urticulate and clean, biff wellington, sebastian klay and Valerieblanck, yes this mental midget even poses as a woman here. He only comes here to aggrivate you and to upset you. He has major issues and needs professional help. If he tries to reply to your posts just refer him to me and tell him that I am the only one who cares about his posts. He attacks our military people here for no reason just to upset them. If anyone here can help me to obtain his home address I will rid us of him permanently. Why any American would want to come in here and bash his fellow countrymen is beyond me but in any case it needs to be stopped. Just reply to him to contact David the former US Marine and then do not respond any further to him as he only wants to aggrivate you and make your day worse. I am willing to pay for information leading me to his location. Nobody has the right to do what this scum is doing here.

  • David

    Sebastian Klay your days in this room are done. These people have no need for you and will have nothing to do with you. I am the only one who cares and the only thing I care about is revenge and making you pay for the things you have said to hurt people here.

  • David

    Nobody needs this aggrivation of having a troll that is only here to upset you. Help me to get his address and we will all benefit from it.
