Emergency Unemployment Insurance


Dear President Obama,

My name is Diane Rosalimsky and I live in Las Vegas, NV. In December as you know unemployment ran out for the people who
were on the the extended benefits. After that, we have heard a handful of reports that it may be re-instated. Last I remember, somewhere around March or April it had passed a bunch of hurtles and it looked like Congress was actually going to pass it. However, since then nothing has been said about it and like myself and thousands upon thousands of people who need that help have been put on the bottom of the pile. I am struggling to pay my bills, keep up to date to pay my mortgage and keep my home and put food on the table. Not to mention the money I need to find to pay for my son's seizure medicine that he needs everyday.

Can you please get this re-instated so that we can breathe just a little and know that our government is out there to help us. I have been searching for a job for a long time and I am coming up empty. What I find is that employers know that people are desperate for jobs. What happens is that they want you to do everything from A-Z and pay nothing because they know we are desperate. On top of that, I am going to be 55 years old in July and apparently that is too old for people to want to hire. They want some young kid that will work for nothing because they can get away with it.

Please help us!

Thank you for your help in advance,

Diane Rosalimsky
