|President Obama stated during a 12/7|
press conference that he had no choice
but to make a 'compromise deal' with
the GOP that left 6 Million '99ers'
out to dry.
“I am truly in disbelief after 8 months of contacting the White House, the Senators and the Congress that knew 99ers had exhausted what benefits they had available to them, and were ignored again in fair of extending Bush Tax Cuts for the rich. We will not hide in the attic anymore. This shame is not ours and its time that people in America know what’s going on in their country”, stated Ms. Taylor.
“I will not allow them to be in the streets. If I have too, I will give them over to foster care first, to keep them from this", Taylor stated.
“Well look, I think someone that experienced that extensive length of long-term unemployment they absolutely need help. I think they help they need most, is some type of structural training or something to help them get back into the workforce”, Bernstein stated to CNN’s Ali Velshi about the ‘99ers' on a December 7th news program.
“Because I think the case is that they need some type of skill enhancement. That is obviously a huge part of our agenda, not part of this agreement. We really did try and go the distance to help the jobless that though no fault of their own, are having a tough time right now", Bernstein stated.
“I am totally appalled over this plan that President Obama has come up with. Giving the rich more tax breaks when they don't need it and leaving over 5 million 99ers who have been without any income for months with absolutely NOTHING”, stated ‘99er’ advocate Cindy Paoletti from New York.
“The 99ers have been fighting their own battle for survival for a long time with no help from anyone that has the power to lobby for us in Congress", Paoletti said.
“The unions such as AFL-CIO, Unemployed Workers and NELP have turned their back on us and offer nothing in the way of support to help us survive. This is just as inhumane as what Congress has done to us,” Paoletti stated.
“The Senator is still committed to her support of the long term unemployed”, stated Lauren a staffer for Stabenow’s Mid-Michigan Office.
“I do not think there is a single Democrat out there if they look at where I started when I came into office and look at where we are at now would say that somehow we have not moved into the direction that I promised”, President Obama stated.
“Take a tally. Look at what I promised during the campaign. There is not a single thing that I said that I would do that I have either not done or trying to do it. And if I have not got it done yet, I am trying too’, he stated.
