Unemployment Extension Tier 5 July 15, 2010 Update 2 – The US Senate which had resumed session this week after a brief recess continued to deny the unemployed with an Unemployment Extension Bill. Even a “Tier 5” extension was not included in the two bills being debated in the senate.

The US Senate leadership headed by Sen. Harry Reid will continue to push through with the passage of an extended unemployment benefits this week despite strong opposition from Senate republicans.

The legislators also clarified that the most recent version of the legislation does not include a COBRA health insurance subsidy or Tier 5 unemployment extension that would provide additional weeks of unemployment for the 99ers. 99ers is a term used for unemployed workers who have exhausted all unemployment benefits.

Here is a deeper look at the effects of failure to pass the Unemployment Extension Bill and Unemployment extension tier 5.

    Congress, get ready! The people are coming. They are going to tear down your house of cards and take back what is theirs. Big money can’t save you, they are as greedy as you. Give the peoples money back to them in as many tiers as they need. It has happened before. This citizens made this country great, not you lying self-serving bastards.
