He talks about UI and having to file cloture on it last night. He said this bill could be passed in 2 hours if the republicans would get off it.

Really all of these control issues in congress has devastated millions of Americans. Our government shows dictatorship and communism {a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party} I think that a Revolution is on the rise. I forgot the state.. but there was a big ad about a revolution stirring with unemployed workers. They where holding signs and demanding our government to do what they where voted in for. Americans asking where are our jobs; to bring them back home and keep them here. That our country is disintegrating...People are already desperate, all these horrific incidences. It will get worse and worse until something good happens to America!!!!{I dont think it will ever be the same} I have hope that is all I have. I believe in our country,our troops and the American people but our government is FU.

Republicans Continue to Hold Up Unemployment Extension

While legislation to extend unemployment benefits for another 14 weeks is sure to pass with strong bipartisan support in the Senate, Republican demands to debate and amend the measure have kept Democrats from making headway.
“I think it’ll pass. I think [Republicans are] just a little irritated about the way they’re being treated,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested.
At issue is an amendment sponsored by Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), which would extend a tax credit for first-time homebuyers that is set to expire at the end of the year. The amendment, which would extend the credit through June 2010 and open it up to individuals in higher income brackets, is opposed by the Obama administration, and Congressional Democrats are hesitant to bring it up on the floor alongside the unemployment bill.
“This is a problem,” Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said of the amendment, estimated to cost $16.7 billion. “This ought to be a clean bill.”
“Offering amendments can be salutary or defensive,” Durbin added, noting that with expiring unemployment benefits at stake, “There are thousands of Americans counting on a safety net.”
“I think the American people are more concerned about getting a job than getting a check,” Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said, dismissing the suggestion that there are political implications for Republicans objecting to the unemployment extension measure.
Republicans have twice blocked Democrats from passing the measure unanimously. Democrats are now trying to work a deal with Republicans to get it cleared this week. “Once the public understands Republicans are standing in the way of unemployment benefits, this bill will come up and it will pass,” Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) predicted.

Guys I wanted you to read for yourself that they are still on the case. I just got a call from someone stating that Obama was on the case to give Social Security recipients moneyfor cost of living or something. i am trying to find so much for us and others. Fly please forgive me for copying and pasting but I think we needed to see for ourselves what they are saying and I did not want to mislead anyone at this time by just telling you what I read. I will take my sanction now! You know I are about everyone on here and especialy you for bringing us over here and continue this fight.

Sherrod Brown spoke on C-span2 a few minutes ago. He was talking about unemployment extension. He was reading letters from people like us. He said it would be brought to the floor tomorrow...

Go to the link I posted above and go to the bottom and click on Sherrod Brown and watch it. It is there... He talks about healthcare for a few minutes first and then he gets to the unemployment extension.

PROGESS>>>>>>>
