my unemployment ran out in may, but what is important is that i didnt just loose my job, i lost health benefits, vision, dental,and perscription benefits, when i lost my job i was under the care of a doctor, so what do i do, the rent is still ongoing,lights, water, garbage pick, phone, groceries, and household items, car insurance, ineed a job iapply for at least three jobs a day on line, and call seeking employment, so what are we to do, we need the extention to bsrely survive,but a job would be better, i need more than just a temporary fix to an ongoing problem, who wants to live on unemployment its a hand up until something better comes along vote yes for this bill

If this is not passed through for the unemployed we will all vote democratic all the way.

We can't believe this is happening in America.

It is a shame that the people that are really in need of unemployment benefits are being caught up in this political scam from the Bush administration. This Bill need to be passed!
