I think that is the safest bet, to keep filing. It sure won't hurt.

Listening to the press conference and if I heard right someone said she still isn't happy with it.

If we get the retro and I don't know why we shouldn't, then we will have 12 weeks left I believe.

I don't understand everything about the budget and the ins and outs, but I do believe there has to be compromise somewhere. I do hope if this goes through that we see something by next week.

Well, everyone better put forth that kind of effort in finding employment in the short weeks that follow. Because once it runs out that is it.

If we put forth the same kind of effort that was done to help restore EB then we should all find some kind of job lickity split!
I can not speak for others in this forum, but I can honestly say that I am and have been consistantly trying to find employment...unfortunately no "lickity split" for me yet!!!

Yes thats pretty much the answer I got. The lady just honestly told me that they were in the dark.

Looking every day, but I can apply to 100 jobs a week and not get a call back. But still doing everything I can as time is running out. But at least with the EB I can catch up and be able to concentrate.

No questions yet about EB at the press conference.

Same here, I think most probably had a plan in place in case they couldn't find work. I had it all worked out in my head the worst case scenario, but I didn't expect this to happen. I had never heard of any look back issue until this happened here in NC.

I am in the WIA program for school and registered for all on line courses in the fall just so I could work at the same time if I could find a job.
And in case I didn't , student loans would get me through the semester while I continue to look for work. And in the worst possible scenario, I would move back into the house I grew up in with my parents about 6 miles down the road.
