President Obama, We, The UNEMPLOYED AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE IN NEED OF YOUR HELP!! OUR FAMILY"S ARE COUNTING ON US AND WE ARE COUNTING ON YOU!!
On October 9, 2009, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) brought the proposed bill H.R. 3548 to give federal unemployment benefit extensions to all 50 states because he recognizes the urgent needs of the people. However, that same day Republican Senator Jon Kyl from Arizona stalled his efforts for speedy passage by asking for more time to consider the bill that would help keep a roof over many Americans heads and keep food on their tables.
The bill was scheduled to return to the senate for additional review and vote on October 13, 2009. Most people thought that it would pass without further delay because of the overwhelming need. During the September 22, 2009, House vote on the bill Congressman Levin Sander (D-MI-12) stated that 15 million Americans are now unemployed the highest number since 1939. Well, after hearing that we were all convinced that our great country knew and understood our plight but more importantly that they would not allow us to suffer, not in America.
