60 Minutes - The 99ers

Even after an extension of unemployment benefits to 99 weeks, many of those about to go off the program are in a quandary. Scott Pelley talks to some of them in Silicon Valley.

  1. WE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THIS COUNTRY SURVIVE FOR SO MANY YEARS AND NOW THE CONGRESS TURNS THEIR BACKS ON US LIKE WE'RE LOSER'S. 60 MINUTES TOLD JUST A SMALL PART OF OUR STORY. CONGRESS CARES ABOUT THEIR RAISES AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE PROBLEM IS THEY ACTUALLY ARE GETTING PAID WITH OUR MONEY. THEY ARE OVERPAID FOR DOING NOTHING TO HELP THE PEOPLE GET JOBS OR AND CREATE JOBS. WE HAVE WORKED HARD ALL OUR LIVES AND ALL WE WANT TO DO IS WORK AGAIN AND IF THEY CAN'T GET US JOBS THAN AT LEAST HELP US WITH TIER 5 UNTIL THIS TERRIBLE RECESSION THAT THE GREEDY CREATED IS OVER..

  2. Will You HOBO UP?
    I recently saw the CBS 60 minutes show about the 99ers and now it is "Tier 5 or Hobo Up for us 99ers". We
    live in a world with Unemployment Gone MAD and the New Depression Blues, and the CBS 60 minutes show on
    Oct 24 2010 should be eye opener for everyone with or without a job! We need a NEW Tier 5 Extended
    Unemployment Benefits Bill now or there will be a Hobo Up generation for future 99ers and others in the
    street. During 1934 a million and half Hobos rode the rails according to the U S Bureau of Transient Affairs
    and in 2011 we will need a new Government HOBO Program for 5 millions 99ers out of benefits so we can learn
    to ride the freight rails safely when migrating for work . Congress can call the low buck training film
    class (1 day) and related laws the HOBO UP ACT and have old hobos showing the ropes to us newly minted hobos
    which should find support from the GOP. Hopefully the S3706 Bill by Senator Debbie Stabenow which seeks to
    add an additional 20 weeks might find a miracle and pass after the election. Also currently IRS has only a
    $2400 U/B tax free deduction. WE in addition need the JOBLESS STUB RETRO U/B TAX FREE ACT, a proposal bill
    that makes all U/B 100% tax free. Thanks again from Country Carl Artist and hopefully you too won't have to HOBO UP. HTTP://CountryCarl.com
