WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Extend unemployment benefits past 99 weeks for ALL long-term unemployed Americans – for the 99ers and ANY “exhaustee”
Very soon an estimated 10 million Americans and their families will have exhausted all 99 weeks of their unemployment insurance benefits (or whatever their State’s maximum qualifying weeks were). Please extend these benefits past 99 weeks for ALL long-term unemployed Americans, especially for the “99ers” and any “exhaustee”, until there are enough jobs available. Because of age or physical imitations, many can not be expected to pick up a shovel. Many have already been without any income at all for a year or longer and barely subsist on food stamps. The 99ers and “exhaustees” can no longer wait for 14 million jobs to gradually come online over a protracted period of time. We’ve waited as long as we could.
During difficult economic times you can find yourself in a position where job loss, bankruptcy or foreclosure has damaged your credit score. Those situations can make it tough to get a car loan. But, there is a place that offers Car Loans for People with Bad Credit and it’s worth a visit to see what they can do for you.
The online application process is fast and simple and you’ll get your results quickly. You can even see if refinancing your current car loan can save you money! Everyone wants to save money on a car payment.
If you have found a new job, or you are going back to school in the evening to further your job prospects, a reliable vehicle is essential. Don’t let your past credit history deter you from looking into options that can help you buy a newer vehicle. That new job you found wants you there rain or shine and with today’s difficult job market, missing a couple days of work because your vehicle is in the repair shop can cost you hundreds of dollars and possibly your job.
Bad credit can happen to good people. Take the time to investigate the best options for your situation.
