Suicide Rates Up Since Recession Began, Debt A 'Way Of Life' For 99ers

Suicide Rates Up Since Recession Began, Debt A 'Way Of Life' For 99ers

Commented Jul 27, 2010 at 07:19:09 in Impact

“SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!

USA guys spend BILLIONS in helping other counties and wars and now people are committing suicide just because we can not find a job and Mr. Obama don't want to extend unemployment help for the 99ers.

It is like an atomic Bomb USA have launch again, this time to the most people in need "Us the workers".

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!”

“Last I recall, President Obama did and the GOP did not.

One reference:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/19/unemployment-extension-in_n_651183.html

You're right, re: helping other countries. Not necessarily a bad thing, but if such help doesn't help them realize we might be an okay country and they continue disliking us, then we should reconsider those initiatives at some point.”

“Why Huffington post does not have in the first page EVERYDAY an article that talks about
the help we all 99es need????

Why?

I really need to know, why THESE aticles are so much important:

1) Nice Work If You Can Get It: Highest Paid CEO Of The Decade
2) WATCH Lohan's Jailmate Speaks: Crying Jags, Special Treatment
3) Gorgeous World Cup Fan ROBBED In Rio
4) PHOTOS: Milla Jovovich's Caftan Too SHORT For Comic-Con?
5) WATCH: Jon Stewart Has Something On His Face

Why?

Is this more important than the people who are killing themselves because we can not find a job????

And I thought smart people run Huffington post... empty heads go to people magazine to read about frivoluos "news", what happen to you guys????”

“Apparently, my first reply got scrubbed...

Latina, my sentiments exactly. I have a friend who I've worked with for several year who's been out of work since January '09. Be strong! Have faith that things will eventually get better, one way or another. #3”

BassFace on Jul 27, 2010 at 07:02:59

“Allow me to be your #3 fan, latina. My sentiments exactly - and my best wishes that you & your fellow 99rs get relief VERY soon. A friend of mine who I worked with for 7-8 years was "downsized" in January of '09 and, as of about a month ago (when I last spoke to him) he's still looking for work... Be strong!”

“That's what everyone said about BP too. I'm sure people would continue to frequent Huff Post if the front page was limited to articles about BP, 99ers, and the Wars. Just keep rotating the same stories over and over. That would make a great news site!”

“Count me in too! Most of this stuff is pretty lame. Sad thing is though most folks and I guess you can include me in 'cause I read this post would rather read inane silly stuff rather than deal with more serious issues. I do, however, read the more serious stuff as well.”

“This extension is for the 99ers, isn't it?
that is why they say for the long term unemployment.”

lungfish on Jul 22, 2010 at 02:06:00

“at this point nobody gets more than 99weeks... They may need to change that because the job forecast is pretty grim. What happens to those who run out of benefits and there are no jobs for them? I can't accept that they should be sol for a problem that is not their fault. This is a bad situation and the GOP solution would be a catastrophe for so many families living on the edge already.... imagine.. 300bucks a week to do rent, gas, utilities, car payment, etc... and if just one thing goes wrong, they are sunk.... cripes. This is where the GOP fail us. They ignore this outcome...”

shwicksdad on Jul 22, 2010 at 01:53:17

“No....This is for those that have not yet reached 99 weeks and are either about to move from state benefits to federal or were already on federal and have not exhausted all their tiers.

Sen. Stebenow from Michigan is working on a bill for the 99'ers. House Democrats want the bill to come out of the senate because every time the house passes a bill it gets hung up in the senate. They feel if it came out of the senate first they could pass it more quickly and easily in the house.”

“I'm heartbroken for these people and their family. According to the story Georgia requires a phone in home elevators. One thing to consider, at their age a system like Life Alert, that you see advertised on television all the time would have made all the difference.”
