10 Market Indicator Closing Summaries – Yahoo Finance Closing Tickers on MHProNews…
Tonight’s Business/Market/Political Impact Spotlight –
Senator Bernie Sanders is in the view of certain pundits all but out after his heart attack. But Bernie isn’t counting himself out. He’s politely gone after rival Elizabeth Warren by saying she is a fine senator, but she says of herself that she’s a capitalist. Sanders flatly says he is not a capitalist. That’s a topic for those concerned about the rise of socialism to watch tonight.
Senator Warren has been ducking on the cost of her ‘Medicare for All’ plan. Now that some polls show her in the lead over Obama-era VP Joe Biden, will someone press her on who is paying for the plan? At least Sanders admitted that the middle class will be picking up part of the tab. Will Warren keep ducking on that? Or will her honesty in storytelling be mentioned? Time will tell.
Perhaps on part to the Sanders heart attack, another significant development is that Biden and his son Hunter have been on the defensive about sweetheart deals in the Ukraine and China that look like pay to play rewards.
ABC News’ video interview with Hunter Biden revealed some interesting statements.
Hunter said he “did nothing wrong at all.” But then he admits that “I think it was poor judgment on my part” to become involved in overseas ventures in Ukraine and China. Those statements are not easily compatible.
Further, when he was asked if he would have gotten a lucrative board position at the Ukraine natural gas company Burisma if his last name was not Biden, the 49-year-old Hunter admitted, “probably not.”
It may take weeks or even a few months, but mark your calendar. VP Biden is done. We said so when he announced that he would not likely cross the 2020 Democratic hopeful finish line, and stand by that assessment.
Here is an update on Michael Bloomberg.
MHProNews will plan a report on the debate highlights.
