And here’s one more thing to be thankful for, according to the Biden administration.

PROVIDENCE, RI — Voters in Rhode Island decide on Tuesday whether the Democratic Party will maintain its three-decade hold on the U.S. House seat vacated by longtime Democratic Representative Jim Langevin, or whether a Republican will join the delegation .

Rhode Island Democratic Treasurer Seth Magaziner is trying to take Langevin’s place to represent the 2nd congressional district. National Republicans are eyeing the seat as a possible pickup opportunity. Republican candidate Allan Fung, former mayor of Cranston, is well known in the district and many political observers say the race is a draw. Moderate candidate William Gilbert is also on the ballot.

The liberal state is currently represented in Congress by Democrats. All of the highest statewide offices are also held by Democrats.

Magaziner has served as state treasurer since 2015. He is the son of former Clinton administration policy adviser Ira Magaziner. He said he would protect Social Security and Medicare, work to reduce the cost of health care and turn “the page on Trumpism.”

Magaziner said voting for Fung will allow Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy and far-right Republicans to adopt hardline policies because Fung will not stand up to them. Magaziner has worked to keep abortion at the center of the campaign, promising to fight any attempt to roll back women’s rights.

Fung said he wanted to bring back that “brand of moderate Republican leadership.” He projects the image of a moderate New England Republican by comparing himself to another popular Republican in a liberal neighboring state, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker. Fung also explains how he would work with Democrats, pointing to shared priorities such as investing in infrastructure and creating jobs in US manufacturing.

Fung is known throughout Rhode Island for serving as mayor of the state’s second-largest city, Cranston, from 2009 to 2021, and running for governor twice. He lost both times to Raimondo.

McCarthy traveled to Rhode Island to raise funds for Fung and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie visited to show his support.

Magaziner has the Democratic establishment in the state behind him and the support of national Democratic leaders. US Labor Secretary Marty Walsh spoke at a rally and first lady Jill Biden campaigned for him.

Magaziner highlighted his successes as treasurer during the campaign, including the strong financial performance of the state pension. It has been endorsed by gun safety groups, the RI AFL-CIO and other major unions. He said he would support banning members of Congress from trading individual stocks and that he would support term limits for members of Congress.

Nationally, Democrats running for office face headwinds as voters blame President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party for inflation. Fung focuses on laser inflation — in ads, debates, conversations with voters, and interviews, he talks about the cost of groceries and heating oil. He says he wants to rein in federal spending.

Fung campaigned on how he brought new business to Cranston, created jobs and improved schools. He has said he will not support a nationwide ban on abortion, and he supports legislation proposed by a bipartisan group of senators seeking to codify the right to abortion and protect access to contraception in the wake of the United States Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. It has been endorsed by business groups and law enforcement agencies.

Of Rhode Island’s registered voters, 44% are Democrats, 41% are unaffiliated and 15% are Republicans, according to state data. High-density Republican neighborhoods were transferred to the 2nd Congressional District from U.S. Representative David Cicilline’s district during the redistricting a decade ago.

Cicilline is expected to be re-elected on Tuesday for a seventh term. He faces Republican Allen Waters, who had previously mounted unsuccessful campaigns for the U.S. Senate in Rhode Island and the state Senate and U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.

Also on Tuesday, voters elected Democratic Governor Dan McKee to his first full term. The former lieutenant governor was a heavy favorite against Republican Ashley Kalus. He became the state’s chief executive in March 2021 when two-term governor Gina Raimondo was named U.S. secretary of commerce.

Political activist group Led by Donkeys has gone viral with a new video in which three of its members climb a ladder to place a fake blue plaque outside 55 Tufton Street in Westminster, central London, a house Georgian townhouse home to a number of right-wing think tanks loved by Liz Truss.

‘The UK economy has collapsed here,’ the memorial sign reads, pointing to the date of September 23, 2022, the day Ms Truss’s now former Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng presented his disastrous and no-frills ‘mini budget’ figure, which proposed reckless tax cuts. and heavy borrowing in times of high inflation.

Mr Kwarteng’s budget program – undeniably radical but deeply flawed, as it turned out – was said to have been drawn up with the Prime Minister, a friend and neighbor of the so-called ‘Greenwich ensemble’, but only served to spook global financial markets, forcing Ms Truss into a series of embarrassing policy reversals and the Bank of England to buy up huge amounts of public debt to prop up pension funds.

The Chancellor was recalled from a meeting with the IMF in Washington, DC, on Friday to be sacked and replaced by former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who has since moved quickly to scrap most of what was left. mini-budget to reassure investors. .

In doing so, he also shredded what was left of Ms Truss’ credibility and left her as a lame prime minister after just six weeks on the job, with her party facing total annihilation in the next general election.

Led by Donkeys blames 55 Tufton Street think tanks for informing the economic ideas of Ms Truss and Mr Kwarteng, which the pair first embraced in 2011 with the founding of the Free Enterprise Group within the Conservative Party or in 2012 when they were among the authors of the book Britannia unleashed – with Dominic Raab and Chris Skidmore – whose prescriptions so completely crumbled on first contact with reality.

Ms Truss has promoted her tax cut ambitions throughout the long Tory leadership race this summer, ignoring her rival Rishi Sunak’s objections to her ‘fairytale’ tax promises, which have since been more than justified.

Led by Donkeys accompanied its latest stunt with a short film attacking Tufton Street lobbyists as ‘free market fundamentalists’, who are ‘hostile to regulations that protect the environment and workers’ rights’, reject responsibility corporate social and “believe the market is God” .

He argues that Ms Truss’s elevation to No 10 means that “lobbyists’ ideology has become government policy”, given the close affinity between her and the institutions that call it home or near it, including the Taxpayers Alliance, the Global Warming Policy Foundation, the Center for Policy Studies, the Adam Smith Institute, and the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA).

“Basically, the blander the name of a ‘Tufton Street’ outfit, the more evil it is,” comedian Stewart Lee recently noted in The Observer.

Led By Donkeys points out that Ms Truss has appointed a number of senior advisers including Matthew Sinclair, Alex Wild, Caroline Elsom, Ruth Porter and Julian Jessop from Tufton Street organizations and is said to have spoken at more events in the IEA than any other politician in recent years. 12, underscoring how intertwined his influence has become within the conservative hierarchy.

He also notes that a number of these groups had taken to social media to gloat about the inclusion of the policies their members had endorsed in Mr Kwarteng’s mini-budget before the markets reacted so negatively. towards them and that they have been a little quieter on the subject since.

Jack Fenwick’s recent documentary on BBC Radio 4 The other black door also examined the role of Tufton Street, tracing its growing influence within the Conservative Party right through the era of austerity and then Brexit.

Angela Rayner, Deputy Leader of the Labor Party, appeared on the show and commented: “55 Tufton Street should have no more influence than any other street in the UK and what seems to be happening here, it’s that this street seems to dominate a particular policy and what’s going on in government and legislation and it’s not transparent enough at the moment.

“It’s very clear to me that there are shady situations where there is clear money and power and influence in this particular area… No one is saying these people can’t exist but I think it’s important for the public to know where these people are coming from and where their money and finances are coming from because that influences how legislation is passed by Parliament and influences key decision-making that has a significant impact on the UK.

Another contributor to the program, conservative pundit Andrew Lilico, argued that the secrecy surrounding precisely who funds the residents of the address is necessary, because otherwise they too would find themselves targeted by activists fundamentally opposed to their activities, which would only result in harassment.

In Tuesday’s testimony, he might be right.

The race for NC House District 72 includes a one-term incumbent and a political newcomer.

District 72 is primarily Democratic, covering downtown Winston-Salem, Wake Forest, Buena Vista, and parts of east Winston-Salem.

Democrat Amber Baker easily won the seat in 2020 and appears to be on track to return to Raleigh. She will face Republican Shelton Stallworthy in the general election. This is Stallworthy’s first run for political office.

Neither candidate faced a challenge in their primaries.

A former principal of Kimberley Park Elementary School, Baker said expanding Medicaid is one of her top priorities if reelected.

Baker said she’s ready to vote to make North Carolina the 39th state to expand Medicaid since the Affordable Care Act took effect in 2014. The expansion would provide Medicaid coverage to between 450,000 and 600,000 North Carolinas.

Although the State House and Senate have each passed their own Medicaid expansion bills, negotiations appear to have been put on hold until next year.

Baker also supports fully funding the Leandro Plan, which asks state lawmakers to provide $5.6 billion in new education spending by 2028 to ensure every child has access to a “strong basic education,” as stipulated in the state constitution.

The state Supreme Court deliberates how Leandro’s funds should be distributed.

“We need to fund our public schools at a sustainable rate, and we haven’t done that in a while,” Baker said.

The state should use part of its $6.2 billion surplus to fund the Leandro Plan and increase pensions for retired state employees, she said.

On the issue of abortion, Baker said his position hasn’t changed.

“Our position has always been that a woman’s decision about her health care and reproductive rights is not a government decision. It’s a personal decision with her and her doctor,” she said.

Baker said she was disappointed that U.S. District Judge William Osteen reinstated the state’s 20-week abortion ban. Some Republican lawmakers have said they would seek a more restrictive ban if Republicans win a veto-proof super majority.

Republicans need to win two seats in the Senate and three in the House for that to happen.

Based on her campaign website, it seems likely that Stallworthy would be among those in favor of more restrictive abortion laws if elected.

Stallworthy could not be reached to speak about his campaign.

On her campaign website, Stallworthy said she was a wife and stay-at-home mom of two young children who enjoyed following politics. An incident at a preschool prompted her to run for office, she said on her website.

“When I started looking for a small preschool program for my son, I was shocked to find that the best of the best masked their babies. And I mean babies, toddlers 2 and under When I pressed their logic, I was met with resistance and disdain from parents.The experience in kindergarten prompted me to examine the state of our city and how we have strayed from rational thought and reason. I found that we had fallen far and not a single conservative had stepped in to fight back. So I am running to fight back. I am running for my children, so that they may call this country as free, prosperous and unique as I am,” she wrote.

She applauded the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on her social media pages, giving insight into how she might vote on abortion issues if elected.

Indian women are still hesitant to make independent financial decisions and rely on the “man of the house” when it comes to making financial decisions, although 44% of respondents prefer to make their own financial decisions when making them. have the opportunity, reveals a Tata AIA survey.

The Women’s Financial Awareness Survey shows that 89% of married women depend on their spouse for financial planning.

Before marriage, a father is responsible for a wife’s financial decisions, which are then tacitly passed on to the husband after marriage.

The survey also indicated that since the average age of women getting married is 20 to 22, they do not have the freedom to decide on their finances.

Thus, marriage is one of the major deterrents to hindering women’s independence in financial decision-making.

For 39% of the women surveyed, financial planning is limited to planning the monthly budget.

Of the 42% of women who better understand financial planning, only 12% are housewives.

According to the survey results, for most women, being financially independent does not necessarily mean that they have the freedom to make their financial decisions.

Among working women, 59% do not independently make decisions about their finances.

The ratio is higher in Tier 3 markets, where 65% of working women do not make independent financial decisions.

“This behavior is despite the intense narrative of women’s empowerment and gender equality that has been widely debated over the decades. Laws against women have also been strengthened and positive change has occurred at the over the years regarding the position of women in society. Yet when it comes to financial planning, women are not allowed to make the decisions,” the survey noted.

However, given the choice, 44% of women are willing to make their own financial decisions.

Encouragingly, in Tier 2 markets, women are warming up to the idea of ​​making their own financial decisions.

Increased awareness of their rights and a general improvement in the way of life could contribute to this change.

When asked about priorities, the survey found that women prioritize their family’s financial security over themselves.

Among the various financial instruments, 62% of women are more comfortable investing in bank FDs for the benefit of their family.

However, when asked about a preference for themselves, they trusted their spouse’s decision.

Up to 72% of women think life insurance is an integral part of their financial planning after COVID-19.

Respondents from Tier 3 cities are more convinced of this. Among life insurance products, the savings plan was the most preferred, followed by term insurance. Pension plans and ULIPs are the least preferred options.

However, when clearly explained about the different types of life insurance policies, women prefer ULIPs and term insurance solutions.

Seventy-five percent of respondents said “trust” was key and that they would invest in a company they can trust.

A detailed understanding of the product is another vital factor in the purchase decision aside from online channels and social media reviews.

Additionally, women are willing to invest in life insurance solutions but expect to pay a lower premium.

They are also looking for guaranteed income through the policy.

Commenting on the survey results, Girish Kalra, Chief Marketing Officer, said, “Understanding our consumers is a critical part of our Consumer Obsession value. Women are an important stakeholder in financial planning, but very little is known about their preferences and attitude towards financial planning and life insurance.

“This survey clearly reveals that we have a journey to travel as a company, to involve women more in the financial planning process. At Tata AIA, we will use the learnings from the survey to introduce women-centric solutions and encourage them to take control of their finances and take the necessary steps to secure their own financial future and that of their family.

Tata AIA Life commissioned the survey from specialist brand research firm eRusaem to assess women’s financial awareness and freedom to make their own decisions.

The study was administered to a total sample of 1000 respondents aged between 25 and 55 in 18 major cities in India, covering Metros, Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets.

State Representative Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz (D-17th), of Glenview

(Editor’s Note: The Journal & Topics is asking candidates in the November 8, 2022 local elections to provide biographical and background information about who they are and why they are running. Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz of Glenview is running for re-election for the 17th Illinois State House district against Republican Bradley Martin.)

Age: 53

Education: BA, Indiana University, JD, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, LLM, Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law

Employment/professional background: Human rights and immigration lawyer and former litigator at Winston and Strawn

Elective mandate currently or previously held, and/or any other service as a volunteer, or as community, educational, etc. : Founding member and co-chair of the Illinois Unaccompanied Children Task Force; former director of the North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic; former board member of Glenview Education Foundation

How long have you lived in the district you wish to represent? : 19 years

Do you have any conflicts of interest that could arise from performing this function? If that is the case, how would you approach them? : No.

Do you have any financial or business interests within the boundaries of the district you seek to represent, or who can work in the district you seek to represent? : No.

Do you have any criminal convictions (other than a minor traffic violation)? Please explain the circumstances: No.

Who are personal heroes to you, or who provided you with meaningful advice, ideas, or example on how to live your life? How and why?: My late father, Michael L. Gong, was and still is my most important teacher, not only for the reasons parents usually are, but because his constant presence in my life served to teach the most important lesson of life – how to focus on what matters and ultimately what it means to live a life well lived. Doing the right thing came naturally to my dad, but he didn’t do things for recognition. In fact, many of his most admirable accomplishments are things he shared only with those who knew him best. An example is his early participation in the civil rights movement. When my dad was at UCLA he joined other students on buses to register black voters in the Deep South and got thrown down a flight of stairs in Mississippi or Arkansas (can’t remember which one) but he rarely spoke about it except to share in passing his observations on the time. He saw none of this as heroism, but simply as the obvious act of someone committed to their civic duty to right a grave injustice. My father’s primary motivation has always been his family and he strived to leave a better world through the choices he made every day. I learned this from my father: there are no small acts of love or charity.

What is it about you that might surprise people? : I was among the first in my party to call on President Michael Madigan to step down. What started as a small handful of us eventually grew to 19, ultimately forcing the first change in party leadership and legislative leadership in a generation.

Why should someone vote for you? : I have always acted and will always act in the best interests and values ​​of my various and lively area. I championed women’s rights when I co-sponsored the Reproductive Health Act, achieved historic environmental progress with the Climate and Fair Jobs Act, and passed consecutive balanced budgets that put Illinois’ finances back on rails. Currently, I am working to ban assault rifles and extended magazines, reduce the cost of health care for seniors and families, and continue to improve Illinois’ excellent public education system.

Why are you running for this office? : I believe our budget is a moral document, and I believe Illinois should spend responsibly in a way that reflects the shared values ​​of our community. That’s why I worked and helped pass a responsible, balanced budget that stabilizes Illinois’ finances, funding essential services like education, resources for the elderly, and health care. Making pension payments in full and on time – and in cases like the FY23 budget, paying them sooner – will continue to reduce the overall financial obligation while honoring commitments to retirees and being responsible stewards of our public finances.

What experience do you have that prepares you for this position? : As the sole immigration and human rights attorney in the General Assembly, my educational and professional background informs my work as chair of the Civil Judiciary and House Immigration and human rights and gives me a unique perspective in the General Assembly.

Democratic nominee paid off blogger who amplified remarks describing Obama as ‘a god–mn n—–‘

A blogger who shared racist remarks about former President Barack Obama has been paid by Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez’s campaign for “ad services” twice.

In November 2014, Juan Montoya, who runs the blog El Rrun Rrun, amplified insensitive comments written by Jerry McHale, another blogger who revealed in July that he had made numerous racist and sexist remarks via his own blog targeting GOP Rep. Mayra Flores.

In the post shared on Montoya’s blog, McHale, who was also paid by the Gonzalez campaign for “advertising services” via his own blog, made racist comments via “one of his alternate personalities” known as name of Dr. GF McHale-Scully.

Describing the Republican politicians he believed the GOP should support in the election, McHale said, “Voters see Cameron County Republicans as viable options. If the party of the wealthy, racists, and religious right led Terry Ray or Bud Richards or Harry McNair, the Democrats would win in landslides, but Tony Garza, Cascos and Garcia are not reactionary ideologues, born-again Christians or prudes.”

“They like f— and drinking. They’re reasonable individuals who don’t rant and rave that Barack Obama is a god–mn n—– who puts an end to the world,” he said. added. “They don’t waste any rhetoric against gay marriage, abortion, or the legalization of marijuana.”

As of Thursday afternoon, ads for Gonzalez’s campaign remain active on Montoya’s blog, leading those inquiring to the Texas candidate’s Facebook page.

In a statement to Fox, the Gonzalez campaign insisted that it had “already severed ties with the author of this article” and that the language used in the blog post was “abhorrent”.

The National Council of the Actors’ Equity Association has voted in favor of Representative Judy Chu’s re-election campaign for the United States Congress on behalf of more than 51,000 actors and directors working in live entertainment.

“Representative Chu has been a critically important champion of the arts. Under her leadership, our Tax Fairness Bill has grown to nearly 90 cosponsors with bipartisan support,” said Al Vincent Jr., Director executive of the Actors’ Equity Association. “I am thrilled that we have such a powerful ally as Rep. Chu on our side who is fighting for arts workers and I look forward to continuing to work with her to help middle-class arts workers as we let’s help rebuild the arts economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Equity’s public policy priorities include defending and protecting the right to bargain collectively, a prevailing wage in the arts, racial justice, a strong minimum wage, more federal and state funding for the arts, prevention of gun violence, universal federal health care, tax fairness, and LGBTQ non-discrimination protections.

THE ACTORS’ EQUITY ASSOCIATION, founded in 1913, is the American union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and managers. Equity strives to advance the careers of its members by negotiating salaries, improving working conditions and offering a wide range of benefits (including health and retirement).
