No Unemployment Extension Add to Job Training Bill

A few months back, a bipartisan job-training bill looked like perhaps the most likely chance to revive an unemployment extension. But the White House and Senate Democrats aren’t prepared to risk it.

The White House issued a Statement of Administration Policy backing the job training rewrite Wednesday, without mentioning unemployment benefits. That’s not a surprise; President Barack Obama also hasn’t demanded unemployment benefits extensions on any other bill, including a package of corporate tax cuts.

Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Tom Harkin, the chief author of the job training bill, said Tuesday he intentionally left an unemployment extension out of the bill because he didn’t want to “screw up” the bipartisan package, which took five years to put together.

“We are not going to let it get screwed up by anything,” the Iowa Democrat said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also said Tuesday that it was up to the House to act on an unemployment extension despite the filing of a new bill by backers of emergency unemployment compensation (Video).

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., has repeated his call for the president to get directly involved in negotiations, but Obama has not done so.

The administration has called on the House to act, but there’s no sign of that happening.

    • Realist555

      It’s so hard to do because the republicans are ready to block any bill that UI extension is attached to. The only attempts to pas this bill has been from the dems and a very small handful of repubs. This should make it very easy for poor unemployed in Red states to turn on their republican politicians. Let’s Vote the Republicans and TPs OUT!

        You will lose again in the house and more than likely lose the senate. The red states and good guys will be enjoying a sweeeet November this year. Barcky’s lame duck session will continue.

    Democrats used Long-Term Unemployed citizens, just like Taliban used Bowe Bergdahl. A bargaining chip, more valuable for negotiations than anything else. Looking to the government to do anything for me, has never worked as a strategy.

    • cassrhone

      Beginning to agree. It is totally unexceptable!

      • Tom_F

        @Real, as opposed to what Dems want us to believe? What do YOU believe happened? How can the Dems get gay partners buried at Arlington, but they couldn’t make a $10 billion-dollar issue impacting more than a million (formerly) working Americans happen? Explain it to me!

  • Realist555

    This is republicans fault because they adamantly oppose any extension and other bills need to pass and not get blocked. Those jerks should be voted out in november they alone caused the pain for the millions of unemployed and the final blocker is Boehner who should be hung for repeatedly ignoring the public to make sure to pay back his donors and the Kochs. Vote NO on republicans and TPs. They want to screw the people to make more profits for their campaign donors.

    • greg huggins

      THE DEMS DO NOT SEEM TO CARE EITHER !!!!!!!!

    The unemployed is like water going under the bridge , the government don’t care because it not causing no damage to the bridge so it’s okay to watch the water go bye to the unemployed……………………. sorry government we have for the people.

  • Jay

    Obama needs to do to something about the Unemployment Extension. He has done nothing to help Americans in desperate need. What has he done to create any decent paying jobs? Nothing! He hasn’t even talked to Boehner about it.
    What did we even elect him for if he can’t even help the American people in his own country???? It is sad and people are losing everything and things will just get worse. We have a Democrat and Republican coming up with the bill to help but Boehner and Obama are like too little kids fighting, and they are hurting us all.

    • Ivan

      There is nothing special about Barack Obama. He is simply the latest in a long line of sleazy self serving politicians, Simply living down to my expectations

  • Yonatan YONATAN

    Has the government forgotten about the three million unemployed workers, and their families, STILL WITHOUT an extension of unemployment benefits since last December? While Billions of tax payers dollars are sent to the Ukraine in an aid package, more and more of these unemployed continue to sink into financial ruin. How can our government send our sons & daughters off to war, but not help their unemployed loved ones back at home? The republican senate has failed these millions of voters, and their families. These Americans have lost all trust and hope and respect for the government because of this lack of compassion, and common decency. The coming elections will be a time for these three million unemployed families to elect new and more compassionate people into office. These current politicians are for themselves only.

  • greg huggins

    SURPRISE,SURPRISE, OBAMA DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE UNEMPLOYED AND NEVER HAS!!! HE CARES ONLY ABOUT HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Frank

    In my opinion this country of ours is broke. There have been speculations for a long time that our gold reserves are empty. NASA as we knew it is gone. All government agencies have been cut back to nothing. All our roadways and bridges are falling apart. We don’t have the money to get involved in any more wars and the rest of the world knows it. It does not surprise me that either party does not want to pass the extension despite what they claim. We are worse than broke. On the list of government priorities, we are at the bottom of the barrel. Just remember to vote during the November election to vote them out of office.

  • Kim M.

    Yay!!! Al Sharpton just mentioned the 3.1 million who are not receiving EUI Benefits. Basically him and his panel of speakers said people are suffering and John Boehner is filing a lawsuit to sue the President. This lawsuit that may never go anywhere will cost the tax payers lots of money. It’s so selfish of them. They (John Boehner & Co.) rather spend money on frivolous lawsuits than giving the “long term unemployed” a hand-up. It’s not a hand-out because many of us have worked many years without ever drawing an unemployment check.

    • Tom_F

      @Kim, the thing is nobody watches MSNBC or has any regard for Al Sharpton. He’s not the guy we want going to bat for us, we need somebody who can make things happen, like George Clooney or Jay Z.

      • Kim M.

        I’m just ecstatic that someone finally had a discussion about the EUI Benefits and the fact that 3.1 million people who were laid off through no fault of their own are really suffering. The mainstream news media have not been reporting this and if they were I think there would have been resolution by now.

        I pray the EUI Benefits comes through but I pray even harder that I find employment. I prefer a paycheck/benefits over a unemployment check.

      • Ivan

        He is boisterous enough to make people take notice One of his “gifts” is that he makes himself difficult to ignore and he has matured somewhat since the Tawana Brawley debacle

      • Ivan

        Also his piranha like personality can make Boehner feel uncomfortable which up to now hasn’t occurred

        • Tom_F

          Sharpton is a joke, Boehner would laugh in his fat face. btw, the goal is to get UI Benefits, not to make somebody uncomfortable.

    • ambermozz

      Wow. I am so conflicted about this. This says a lot about this country. I am an American of African American, German and Filipino decent who was cut off extended unemployment benefits on Dec 28 2013. I am overjoyed that Al Sharpton decided that the loss of benefits to 3.1 million people and their suffering needed to be addressed to the public. I also agree wholeheartedly that Boehner’s absurd lawsuit would utilize an overabundance of tax payer money and that it is completely ridiculous. What i am completely uncomfortable with is that the only reason that he decided to bring it up is because he sees an opportunity to turn this into his own agenda.

      • Kim M.

        Everyone seems to have a agenda and a motive. So I’m not going to complain if that agenda or motive is going to alert America that the long term unemployed are suffering to the point that they are destitute.

        • Sebastian Klay

    • Hearin in da Boro of NYC

      Instead of Al Sharpton opening his mouth let him open his wallet and start paying back rent, outstanding bills in his name and outstanding civil lawsuites where his big mouth got a man to commit suicide by slandering him and ending his career in addition to distancing from his familiy and friends because of Al Sharpton’s LIES. I personally know people who grew up with him and he’s not fit to be bird cage liner let alone a “commentator” on TV or radio. Don’t let the REV. title fool you. His ilk say he is REVerse of what he appears to be. That first book of the Good Book calls it deception.

      • Kim M.

        Ummm…. So what does that have to do with EUI Benefits?

        • Hearin in da Boro of NYC

          Al Sharpton just mentioned the 3.1 million… Anything he touches is suspect as lies, fraud and race based. If someone speaks on my behalf I prefer them to be true leaders and not BSers. He is only leading to trouble not solutions. Blaming “John Boehner & Co” is a bit sophomoric. Everyone of the DC parasites are responsible for us not receiving what we have worked for, Me, I’m on week 52. Last check was week 26. If they, any of them were serious, each of us would have not been afraid to buy a Thanksgiving meal, Christmas fixings or Easter ham. The are all to blame for doing nothing but for the camera’s and sound bites provide, “OOOHHHH we need to help those who through no falt of their own…” They turn my stomach after working three jobs over thirty years and only needing unemployment once in my life. Voted every opportunity since 1977. The only thing their hot air is good for is winter heating. Watch and see how hot it gets this summer.

          • Kim M.

            Relax man. You act like you have a hard on for the guy.

    • Ralph

      Kim can we the people file a lawsuite against John Boehner

      • Kim M.

        Actually I was wondering the same thing. What’s sad is that the taxpayer’s will pay for this lawsuit that Boehner plans on filing. Perhaps he should be asked to attach a Bill that will pay for the lawsuit instead.

        This is all a joke to them and I hope all the people who are effected by this debacle will go to the polls and vote in November. It’s been said that he who laughs last laughs best.

          Your wife wears a wig to hide from you when you get home so you don’t recognize her with sperm and smile on her face. Wig come off along with her panties when i get there.

    This is really upsetting to me. I was a Republican for most of my adult life and I’m going to run out my regular unemployment in about 7 weeks. No more. I was actually happy when Nancy Pelosi was no longer the Speaker, but if she was the Speaker now then I would be getting an extension if I needed it. I am looking, but I am older, so it’s hard.

      I pray that John Boehner allows the Bill to go to the floor to be voted on before your UI Benefits run out. My UI Benefits ran out mid April (26 weeks of UI) and I can tell you that I wouldn’t wish this on my worse enemy. All I can say to you is start preparing for the worse but hope for the best.

      • Mimi

        Thanks Kim. I hope you get your extended benefits. Better yet, I hope we both get jobs soon.

        • Kim M.

          Amen to that! I’ve never prayed this much in my life. God’s grace and mercy has been sustaining me this far. But I hate living day to day like this.

    here is a question that I can’t seem to find an answer to :
    If there are 100 million people working and the avg rate of money paid in to the UEI is 500 a year , that works to about 500 billion a year, where does all the money go ? if they are only paying out about say 50 billion a year , could it really cost 450 billion to run the system ? and if it does , maybe it should not be a government run system any more

  • Jon Fulton

    Obama has nothing to do with the issue! This article isn’t journalism, it’s false information. The extension passed in the Democrat controlled Senate and the REPUBLICANS in the house refused to even bring it to a vote. This is the result of Republican obstructionism and has nothing to do with Obama. This article needs to be deleted.

    • left wing

      want some cheese with that whine?

  • left wing

    all the people out of jobs do not have to worry, obama and the democrats are bringing in thousands of illegal aliens daily to get all the jobs. the jobs created lately have all gone to “immigrants”. you can thank obama and the amnesty folks in both parties for helping you out.

    • Jon Fulton

      A few points regarding your fox news indoctrinated misperception of reality:

      The real job creators are consumers, not business owners. When normal people in society have money, they spend it. When there is a demand for a product or service, jobs always surface to meet that demand. When there isn’t enough money in circulation for people to trade services with each other, as is in the case of our oligarchic society where the 1% hordes massive amounts of money, circulation stagnates and you have mass poverty and unemployment. To blame this situation on immigration demonstrates your own ignorance, which is typical of the rightwing media who stop at nothing to protect the privileged status of the ruling elite in this country. Don’t be a pawn.

        Sadly … and ironically … it might be technology to blame.

    Unlike food stamp and welfare recipients, many unemployed people (all of

    which previously held jobs) are Republicans. If the news media shows one person

    saying that he had always voted Republican but if the House leadership does not

    allow a vote on extension of unemployment benefits he will never vote for a

    Republican again, the Republicans will cave, as 1.3 million voters could be a

    critical in the next election.

    The joke used to be that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged.

    The new version will be a Democrat is a Republican who had his unemployment

    benefits ended.

    “..It is not just a coincidence that tax cuts for the rich have

    preceded both the 1929 and 2007 depressions. The Revenue acts of 1926 and 1928

    worked exactly as the Republican Congresses that pushed them through promised.

    The dramatic reductions in taxes on the upper income brackets and estates of

    the wealthy did indeed result in increased savings and investment. However,

    overinvestment (by 1929 there were over 600 automobile manufacturing companies

    in the USA) caused the depression that made the rich, and most everyone else,

    ultimately much poorer.

    Since 1969 there has been a tremendous shift in the tax burdens away from

    the rich and onto the middle class. Corporate income tax receipts, whose

    incidence falls entirely on the owners of corporations, were 4% of GDP then and

    are now less than 1%. During that same period, payroll tax rates as percent of

    GDP have increased dramatically. The overinvestment problem caused by the

    reduction in taxes on the wealthy is exacerbated by the increased tax burden on

    the middle class. While overinvestment creates more factories, housing and

    shopping centers; higher payroll taxes reduces the purchasing power of

    middle-class consumers..”

    The fact no one wants to discuss. What we are dealing with is something that
    we as a society or a species has never had to deal with before. What this is … is the effect of overpopulation. Plan and simple. There is no denial at this point. They way things worked in the past is that all the riches and wealth would accumulate at the top, but the people at the top would grow old and die. They don’t take money with them … it would be re-distributed to the masses one way or another. A perpetual cycle. People are living longer now. The wealth is sitting at the top. This system worked well before, when “most” people were living well enough, at least with meager jobs, able to keep food on the table and gas in the car. When every 30 years or so there would be a major ground warwhere hundreds of thousands would die. That doesn’t happen anymore. But now that there are just TOO many people the system is falling apart. … Result. They DONT WANT to help this segment of people who are close to being out on the streets or they already would have. Someone at the VERY top of the human chain wants to get RID of people one way or another. Maybe thebird flu didn’t spread like it was supposed to a few years back. I don’t know. I don’t normally think conspiracy theory’s but the fact of the matter is about as obvious as the sky is blue when you see the attitude coming from some of these people. They simply think the unemployed are dead weight and that in the end no one will miss them when they are gone. It’s like a survival of the fittest attitude. It’s not that they don’t care. It’s that they know that in order for the other 90% to survive, 10% have to go. And by go I mean GONE. Too many fish in the tank, they start dying. Too many animals in the wild. That’s why there is a hunting season. So when humanity reaches a certain point, it’s either take some of them out or let them destroy themselves. I’ll try to let you all know if men in black come to take me away now.

    John Boehner pledged no earmarks. Nothing that will help 2 million unemployed American workers will be allowed to pass on John Boehner’s speakership.
