New 99er "Ex-Lax Attack" Campaign announced on Jobless Talk

Posted by Paladinette on Saturday, May 28, 2011,

In an effort to get Congress 'moving' on HR 589, the new 99er  "Ex-Lax Attack" Campaign was announced on Friday's episode of Jobless Talk. The idea is one which has the potential to get media attention back on the suffering of the long term unemployed and something the jobless masses can have a little fun with. 

Near the end of her weekly RANT, Paladinette said: "It is now Memorial Day 2011, nearly 18 months since many UI exhaustees had a benefits check - and still NO MOVEMENT on HR 589 - no b...

Posted by Paladinette on Sunday, May 15, 2011, In : HR589 
According to Keep America at Work and World Report today, the GOP is sitting on $31 billion dollars of paid in UI money, while they continue to let the 99ers starve daily.

From the article:

“The stated reason that HR 589 or a Tier 5 unemployment extension could not be introduced on the House floor was that neither could be financed, just another lie in a long stream of lies. Dave Camp, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee that is refusing to hear any legislation for unemployment exte...

GOP Approves Jobs Bill to Deny UI to Jobless Lacking Diploma or GED.

Wednesday, a congressional panel approved a Republican bill that would allow states to divert $31 billion worth of federal money for the long-term unemployed and use it to pay down state debt instead. The bill also would disqualify jobless Americans from receiving unemployment benefits if they lack a high school diploma or a GED. The bill would also set a national minimum standard for work-search requirements for laid off wo...

99ers Need to Ask Washington: Where is the Money?

Posted by Paladinette on Thursday, April 7, 2011, In : HR589 

With 19 states refusing to take advantage of the money Washington set aside for the “so called” 13 month extension of UI benefits last December, 99ers need to ask Washington:Where is the Money?

This money was already allocated and thus, if it is not going to be spent, it is ready and available to offset the cost of a PAID FOR extra Tier (or additional weeks to an existing Tier) to extend UI benefits for those who desperately need them.

Why every 99er in America is not constantly calling the...

New UI Claims decline - Unemployed 99ers Under Attack Why Won’t They FIGHT BACK?

Posted by Paladinette on Saturday, March 26, 2011, In : HR589 

New UI Claims declined last week, but unemployed and 99ers are under attack in every state.  So why won’t they FIGHT BACK?  

Jobless claims declined by 5000 to 382000 in the week ended March 19, 2011. BIG DEAL as that is still an annual job loss rate of 20 MILLION in the USA. Why don’t they ever mention that on the NEWS?  I skimmed over 55 related articles by the big news outlets and their affiliates like FOX, CBS, ABC, Huff-Post, Associated Press, Reuters and the like and NOT EVEN 1 of t...

13 month Extension is A LIE - Unemployed Non-99ers need to WAKE UP

Posted by Paladinette on Tuesday, December 14, 2010, In : Americans Want to Work Act Tier 5 

Unemployed Non-99ers need to WAKE UP:

The unemployed in this country are being sold a bill of goods by the President, the media, phony pollsters and most members of Congress.

FACT: The 13 month extension in this compromise does NOT guarantee your benefits continue for the entire 13 months.

FACT: If you have exhausted all available Tiers of benefits already, HR 4853 WILL NOT HELP YOU AT ALL.

FACT: If you are on Tier 2 now (or soon will be) and your state does not meet the state UI % threshold for ...
