Why There's No Unemployment Insurance in Budget Deal
BY Dan Friedman
House and Senate negotiators cut a modest budget deal Tuesday, but for many Democrats, they left out one big piece of unfinished business: extending federal unemployment benefits.
The program gives unemployed individuals access to emergency compensation after they have exhausted their state benefits, which typically last for 26 weeks. The federal program, beefed up in the 2009 economic stimulus bill, now allows benefits for up to 73 weeks. It is set to expire Dec. 28th, a step that would cost 1.3 million people benefits.
Even our vets cant find jobs,after they fought for our country to keep these fat cats safe......the GOP has denied extention of unemployment benefits in the new budget paln for 2014 for vets and others that their checks will end at the end of the month.......Why do the Republicans hate America so much? Why did the Republicans extend benefits several times when GW Bush was in office????
President George W. Bush.
•Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008 (HR 6867): This bill, which extended benefits, passed the House on Oct. 3, 2008, by a vote of 368 to 28. Of the 170 voting Republicans, 142 or 84 percent supported the extension. The measure passed the Senate by a voice vote, a parliamentary often used when legislation is not controversial.
•Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2008 (HR 2642): This bill provided federal money to states to make emergency unemployment compensation payments to workers who had exhausted all rights to regular compensation. On final passage, it sailed through the House by a vote of 416 to 12, with 186 or 95 percent of voting Republicans supporting it. It passed the Senate 92 to 6. Among Republicans, 42 of 48 supported the measure.
•Katrina Emergency Assistance Act of 2006 (S 1777): This bill, which made unemployment assistance available to people affected by Hurricane Katrina, passed by voice vote in the House and by unanimous consent in the Senate.
•Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 2003 (HR 2185): This bill, which extended unemployment benefits by 26 weeks, passed overwhelmingly in the House by a vote of 409 to 19. Among Republicans, 204 or 91 percent voted in favor of the measure. The bill passed by unanimous consent in the Senate.
•Emergency Wartime Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2003 (HR 1559): This bill provided extended benefits for displaced airline and related workers in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It passed the House by a voice vote and the Senate with unanimous consent.
•P.L. 108-1 (S 23): This bill, which provided for a five-month extension of the Temporary Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 2002, passed the House by a vote of 416 to 4. Among 222 voting Republicans, 218 supported the measure.
•Job Creation and Worker Assistance Act of 2002 (HR 3090): This bill, which extended unemployment benefits for up to 13 weeks for those who had exhausted their 26 weeks of regular coverage, passed the House by a vote of 417 to 3. All 218 voting Republicans supported it. In the Senate, the vote was 85 to 9, with only one Republican opposing the bill.
On the question of the Obama's statement that, in the Bush years, "Republican senators voted several times to extend emergency unemployment benefits," the president is correct.

Ex Nazi racist tea bagger and former FIXED NEWS employee Glenn Beck goes after Specker of the House and Snitch McConnell
Glenn Beck attacks ‘worthless’ John Boehner
Conservative radio host Glenn Beck went off on Republican leadership after the House passed a budget compromise Thursday, calling House Speaker John Boehner “worthless” and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a “liar.”
“I think John Boehner is one of the prime examples of worthless, worthless Republicans,” Beck said Thursday on Mark Levin’s radio show.“All these people saying,‘Hey, the Republicans aren’t as bad,’ no. I think they actually might be worse, because they claim to be something that they’re not.”

Beck told Levin, who called Boehner “utterly feckless,” that Boehner and those like him “have got to go.”
“I will not vote for another Republican who is just a Republican who says,‘Well, you know, we got to do what we got to do.’ No we don’t, we have to take a stand,” Beck said, citing Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for standing up.
The pair advocated a strategy for defunding Obamacare that led to the government shutdown in October.

John Boehner: Conservative Groups Have Lost All Credibility
WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) assailed conservative groups Thursday for opposing the latest budget deal, saying they had crossed a line and lost their credibility.
"This budget agreement takes giant steps in the right direction," Boehner said at a press conference. "But when groups come out and criticize something they've never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are."
Boehner has been reticent in the past to criticize conservative outside groups, such as Heritage Action and Club for Growth. Some of the groups have had a considerable influence on the tea party faction among House Republicans, and were the rallying force behind the effort to either defund Obamacare or shut down the federal government.
For the first time, Boehner acknowledged that these groups pushed Republicans into an unsuccessful strategy that he didn't favor. He expressed particular outrage that one of the groups later said it knew the shutdown strategy wasn't going to work.
"Are you kidding me?" Boehner shouted.
"Frankly I think they're misleading their followers. I think they're pushing our members in places they don't want to be," he added. "And frankly I just think they've lost all credibility."

This does not solve the long-term budget deal or change the GOPs version of what they would want as a budget in the long run?
No it only postpones it because, if they keep the majority during next year’s election than they will give us the same line they gave us to explain ignoring last year’s presidential election which is that the American people voted for them to continue to do it their way which will be the unfair way and again the obstruction will follow.
The GOP played this trick before except they used the ACA and all the lies that followed to win the majority in 2010. I won’t be gullible in thinking that they wouldn’t do the same next year because, it’s not like they earned the benefit of the doubt.
The media can praise the Speaker and this deal all they want as for me I need more action that would show me he intends to stay true to his bravado yesterday instead of it being an anomaly. He would sell me if he added the extension of the unemployment benefits to the deal or passes it on another separate bill and even than I'll need more action especially on the important issues.
They won’t on either issue and denying the extension will add struggle to the people needing it including 20,000 combat vets! Please be vigilant people because, I’ve seen this trick before.

That's right, the tyrannical "Club for Growth" who in essense is leading the blunt headed dolts like BHO down a primrose path. He (BHO) can waste all the time he wants trying to convert a few more minions with his Beckian nonsense jibberish. He thinks he spreading accurate information churned out like butter by Jimmy Dmints Heritage Action front for the superwealthy overlords from the energy and medical industries but instead these articles have been sepetated from their original forms by either ommision or just flagrant lies. However, this wouldn't be enough to stop super stooge here BHO to stop propogating this crap, no.way.it just encourages his febble mind like any other stooge who's under the impression these industry Hitler's are going to save his sorry asss.
He's is a loser extrordinaire along with his other blunt headed racist Nazi bretheren are taking the bait hook line and sinker...
Do you ever do wonder how insane a person would have to be to endlessly post here day and night for years like this BHO with worthless garbage propoganda that's obvious to anyone with a normally function brain. You see most people can filter the BS bit a small segment of the population like BHO have defective truth filters and are unable to detect when their being played by the overlords like a friggin violin. However in his extreme case it lends to the speculation of him being directly on the Heritage - Club for Growth - Topix - Pokitix - Koch Brothers - Damint payroll. I've heard that they pay this cut and paste idiot troll thier favorite salary which is of course less than minimum wage since they're currently throwing billions to their paid for a Tea Party pupppets in Congress and hundreds of state government officials . These overlord puppet masters own these blunt headed dolts lock stock and barrel and one agenda of theirs is to elimiminate the nessesity to pay minimum wage. I must say that if they are paying this psychologically deficient psychopath (you know, their favorite type of chump) the minimum wage then they're not getting their money's worth with this pathetic loser BHO.

No doubt about it....he is the loser extrordinaire.
I enjoy seeing a stooge like BHO being duped by the dumbest asses on earth. Yet, he continues to feed from their dirty racist trough of nonsense.
Amazing, isn't it?

John Boehner Fed Up With Conservative Base
On Thursday, Republican House Speaker John Boehner attacked the conservative base for their indiscriminate opposition to the latest bipartisan budget deal, saying they had lost their credibility. According to Huff Post, conservative groups such as The Club for Growth, Heritage Action for America, FreedomWorks opposed the bill immediately after it was released. In fact, some did so even before it was released.
“This budget agreement takes giant steps in the right direction,” Boehner said.“But when groups come out and criticize something they’ve never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are.”
Boehner accused the conservative groups of “using the Americans people.” In particular, Boehner accused the groups of pushing the Republican party into a dubious plan to shut down Obamacare.“Frankly I think they’re misleading their followers. I think they’re pushing our members in places where they don’t want to be. And frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibility.” he said. Boehner was also not amused when one group that was behind the plan admitted that they knew it would never work.“Are you kidding me?” Boehner yelled.

"Eddie Munster", Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) told the Des Moines Register he "is focused on the job at hand, but is clearly leaving a door open for a White House run -- at the top of the ticket this time."
Said Ryan: "I've decided I will consider this later. Once I'm through with this term, then I'm going to give a hard look at it."
For Ryan, "the job at hand" is always reducing spending on the poor, sick, elderly, and disabled and nothing else.
And abortion and any women's issues that would keep them healthy and alive.
Hillary will wipe the floor with this clown!!
Hillary 2016 !!
