    He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. This should be John Boehner's epitaph he is GUILTY of crimes against this country according to our beloved Declaration. We must remove him from office. There are several pettitions out there. I urge all of my fellow American's to sign and get your friends and family to sign and get this tyrant out of office FOREVER!!!!!

    The us gov is so broken. I have been led to believe I could keep my house with extended ui. I have applied for 1.5 years for work and I know I am age discriminated. I cant get work I did for ever. I have a very modest life and it requires 2000 plus a month. I will still live on the streets w a min wage job. I was counting on the extension. My house is in trouble. The Republic-words caused the economy crash and they refuse to help the needy while they live ther rich pompas lives. I wish they would not have raised hopes and I would have taken a sewer cleaning job even though I have two college degrees. They are going to kill this extension. Bastards. Its illegal to live in your car but whatcan you due when the economy and Republic-words wont help but they throw away our tax money on stupid world police issues. BS. I read this bill convieniently expired and wont likly be renewed. Screw us commoners. I guess they hope we despose of ourselves to control the poor peoples. Its fairly obvious we are going to get screwed on the extended UI bill. Thanks America the home of the pompas arogant rich gov. Worked all my life and3 now I have lost it all. The rich get richer and the poor get screwed left and right. The Rep must sit at home all satisfied on there screw over of the people who pay there salery. I used to be a proud american. I will never buy a home again. Right to work, right to screw at any moment without a care in the world. Why did u not tell us u were going to screw us from the beginning. It would have been easier. I was not able to participate in any of the gov programs due to nit picky issues, No harp because of second loan, no energy insulting because multi house. No retraining help. Not a thing and now they wont help the long term screwed over unemployed, The unemp stats are bogas. Only the employed and short term ui are getting jobs. There are going to b uprisings and I am available.They would run us over if they did not need tax money. Sorry about the rant but I am so dissapointed in the Gov. Mainly Repulic-words buts is all to big and out of control with there money printing, uncontrolled spending.

    My heart goes out to you Keith. I am in same boat. Only difference is that thankfully mychildren are grown and I don't have to worry about feeding them. I went on UI last Sept. for first time in my life. And did not receive the benefit of even 1 (one) extension. I had to move in with a friend as I could not pay rent or utilities. I had bought a newer safer car two weeks before they laid me off,so of course now I am making car paymts. But in 6 days bank has advised me to either surrender vehicle or have it repossessed. No matter I guess cant afford gas anyway or insurance. I have sold all I can to keep my head above water but now I am drowning. I see no out here, and especially if we did get the extension with it being retroactive I will never see light again. I wish you the very best, and I wish I could help, but just having someone to share my anguish with is enough til we find jobs or get te good old USA to help take care of their own.

    Why keep extending unemployment if all the government wants to do is import more foreign works? Maybe that the real problem!
