Quit the bantering and do what you were elected to do. This is an issue filled with pork at the expense of the taxpayer. Who will never see a balanced budget as long as we stay with the current form of production in the House of Represenitives.

Get to work or get booted out during the next election. For all the good that's being done we may as well just assign those congressional and senatorial positions via lottery. Shame on you for not attacking these important issues. STOP THE SPENDING!

I am a dislocated worker. Because of this program, I am able to change my career path to become employable. I am a 3.75 gpa student and have placement for a job once I have graduated. If this bill is not passed with appropriate funding for WIA program, I feel will have a huge impact on our economy. People just won't be able to find good PAYING jobs. Let's face it, Obama has done nothing to provide a JOB simulates. I owned a construction company and because of the real estate mortgage fiasco, I lost everything. Please don't cut the funding for PL 112-6. Kim, Bowling Green Kentucky

We need to continue funding WIA and hold agencies more accountable about the training $ that are being spent. There are jobs however job seekers and employers are mismatched. There's jobs that job seekers don't have training for those position. Employers are not going to dumb down their industry, we need trained individuals to fill those positions.

How many duplicate and sneaky 'continuing appropriations' laws do we need? We need more laws to see what Congress is doing when they should be working. If they had to account for their time and the money they spend they might have been working in 2011 to create a 2012 budget and there would be no need for more of this 'continuing' stuff that indicates they were not doing their job.
