SPECIAL EDITION - UNEMPLOYMENT DAY 3

SPECIAL BLOG SHOUT OUT to http://dcrevolt.blogspot.com/. I have listed them on the right hand side of this page as well for convenience of finding again.

Thank you to @Mitchwyo and @chrisbearkat for answering my question why Harry Reid voted no on his own bill. Their answer - To ask for a reconsideration he has to vote on the winning side - so he intends to ask for another vote.

UPDATE - SENATE VOTES

The Senate has thrown us under the bus, swept us under the rug, given us our "death sentences". The vote to extend unemployment was 58 yea and 38 nay. I will post the vote tally once it is available online at the Senate site.

In the meantime, I'm happy that both of my Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet of Colorado voted YEA. For those of you who have Senators that voted NAY, we need to UNITE, protest their offices. I encourage the protest on local offices of each Senator, protesting on your state capitol will only affect the STATE vote and they don't count at this point.

Personally, I will help each and everyone of you to put your denying Senator out of office in November by using my blog as a "home base" for all. It's my personal goal to make sure that EACH AND EVERY one of us is represented by Senators and House Reps that WORK FOR US!

They see fit to bailout banks and car manufacturers with OUR money, give themselves RAISES with OUR money, but kill us off in the end. THIS MUST STOP!

Further updates will continue as they come available!

=================================

Round and round we go. From the Senate to the House yesterday with HR 5618 (the stand-alone bill) which was defeated (see older post from yesterday on the vote tally), now today we have the Senate again.

Senator Harry Reid submitted for vote today an amendment (S. Amdt 4425) which amends HR 4213 which was voted out last week (or was it on Monday, this week). This bill and amendments can be found at http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/legislative/b_three_sections_with_teasers/active_leg_page.htm.

As I watch CSPAN, US Senate proceedings, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is explaining how unemployment is necessary and now is reading those faxes that people sent to him.

CAMPAIGN DOES WORK!
KEEP FAXING AND CALLING!

I encourage all that are able to do so, watch CSPAN (Directv channel 351).

Nevada - Take Action

Stop Sharron Angle!

Sharron Angle retreats a bit, but mostly stands ground - find article here. She is against unemployment extensions and other such matters where YOU the voter are concerned.
