were not included with President
Obama's 'compromise' with the GOP
These 6 Million and growing jobless individuals have been without any form of supplemental income payments since April 30, 2010. The 99ers are those who were NOT included in the reported President Obama ‘compromise deal' with Republican Senate and House leadership.
Two Million job seekers unemployment benefits were exhausted on November 30th. This group is the ones that were included in the 'compromise deal' with the GOP.
“As sympathetic as I am to those who prefer a fight over compromise, as much as the political wisdom may dictate fighting over solving problems, it would be the wrong thing to do,” Politico reported President Obama stated.
"There is no expansion of federal unemployment extensions via a Tier V or addition of more weeks.", reported on All 24/7 News.com.
