In Deficit "Town Meetings," People Reject America Speaks' Stacked Deck

Commented Jun 29, 2010 at 19:14:59 in Business

“The 99ers needs are falling on deaf ears from Barack Obama, Jim McDermott and Senator Johnny Isakson.
This is an S.O.S .for the Tier V Unemployment Benefits Movement for those five millions of unemployed Americans who cannot find work after searching for employment for 99 weeks and exhausted the current unemployment benefit limit.
For those Americans who would rather turn their head away or think it won't happen to them, think again. When you least expect it, like a year or so before you plan on retiring, it will happen.

One has to wonder if our elected officials, Senators, Congressmen, Jim McDermott and President Barack Obama, thought of offset costs when they evaluated their raises, vacations, and when they send our men and women to war around the world.

Five million Americans or 99ers don't know where to turn because they have exhausted all of their savings, 401K if they were lucky to put away, and now have no place to turn.

Why is it that our country was able to help immigrants from every country and now won't help the millions of Americans by passing thisTier V ?

The majority of these folks are from all walks of life and now range from 28 to 52 years old.

When will someone in Washington and the mainstream media take notice and ACT on our behalf?

“Mother Theresa of Calcutta needs to advise President Barack Obama to create an Executive Order of the ardent desire to do something good and constructive about the plight of the 99ers. These are Americans who cannot find gainful employment anywhere after exhausting 99 weeks of unemployment benefits. Like Mother Teresa President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama need to keep their eyes and hearts open, aware of the abject circumstances that are happening to now more than five million Americans who are losing everything they worked their life for, and act on their behalf.

If an Executive Order is necessary then the Leader of the Greatest Country on earth needs to do it.

“The White House and Congress ignore Millions of Tier V Unemployed Workers who have exhausted 99 weeks of unemployment with no assistance in sight. Instead, President Obama asked Congress for $4.4 billion to promote economic growth in Afghanistan with the aim of increasing employment in areas beset by the Taliban insurgency.

This exodus of funds to help any other nation other than Tier V Unemployed Americans is deplorable.

I am just wondering if the jobs that Vice President Biden is referring to about creating by year end is in Afghanistan or in the United States of America.

“This article is not supported by the millions of unemployed Americans classified as Tier V Unemployed because they are not being counted in the numbers. They have disappeared from the reports. When are our leaders in Washington, commentators like Larry King, Oprah, Diane Sawyer and President Obama going to take action and do something about this?

Sneakers1 is absolutely correct. Mainstream America thinks that because some people put a sign outside their door they become entrepreneurs. Nothing farther than the truth!

“It makes me absolutely sick to know that we are spending so much on a place like Afghanistan. That 4.4 billion could have been put to much better use here.”

“Alec Baldwin’s commanding onscreen presence, coupled with an intensity that few actors possess, is just enough reason for him to be one of my favorite actors on and off the screen. His performance in "It's Complicated" caused me to laugh and yes think intensely about life.

Tier 5: Congress Sends Mixed Signals About Adding More Weeks Of Unemployment Benefits

Tier 5: Congress Sends Mixed Signals About Adding More Weeks Of Unemployment Benefits

Crisis in America. For those thousands of university graduates from coast to coast and from sea to shining sea, without work, the crisis is very real, especially if they have been trying to find work after 99 weeks after being out of the workforce. These staggering numbers or Tier V unemployed workers are larger than anyone previously predicted.

While people like Mrs. Obama encourage higher education, there is no study that shows what happens to already highly educated college graduates who cannot find employment by no fault of their own.

Our leaders in Washington, including President Obama, our Senators, & Congressmen need to wake up and smell the coffee. Once they come to their senses, they need to take ACTION on voting for Tier V Unemployment Benefits!

As an auditor of 19 years for The Volkswagen Group, when a group didn't feel comfortable with my findings they would change the subject or try to divert the attention to other unrelated topics. They would even sometimes attempt to play dumb hoping the problem would go away.

This strategy works on a temporary basis but the problem never goes away until it is addressed.

The thousands of Americans who cannot find meaningful work aren't going away.

While others scream "Job Creation" this takes time. In the meantime Tier V Unemployment Benefits must be a priority for our leaders to pass in Washington. Not Tomorrow but Today!
