Must-know: Analyzing the growing demand for ETFs in the US – Yahoo Finance

The decision released Sunday is the latest in a series of recent decrees that aim to ease Egypt’s staggering budget deficit, which has hovered at around 12 percent over the past three years of turmoil. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, former military chief elected last month, vowed to take tough decisions to address the country’s battered economy. This weekend, el-Sissi also partially lifted subsidies on fuel, a politically sensitive issue that Egypt’s previous leaders had avoided. In Egypt, where nearly 50 percent of the population live in poverty, state subsidies on energy and basic food stuffs eat up a quarter of the budget. Wall Street has emerged from the financial crisis deeply changed. But one certainty has proven itself: Patience and courage are critical virtues for investors.

Obama: ‘i Hear You’ – Cnn.com

The White House says Obama invited House and Senate leaders from both parties to a meeting at the White House on Friday afternoon. It’ll be the first chance for both parties to plot a way forward after the dust settles from the midterms. The White House says Obama was watching the midterm results from the White House and calling House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates from both parties. The election results will have a profound impact on Obama’s ability to carry out his agenda during his final two years in office. Republicans have already vowed to use their gains in the election to mount aggressive efforts to roll back Obama’s agenda. Politics & Government

Obama Seeks $6.2 Billion for Ebola Fight – ABC News

McConnell said the President could wield his veto and confront Republicans. But he advised Obama to follow Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, who built domestic legacies despite often having to deal with a Congress controlled by opposing parties. McConnell said those two presidents are “good examples of accepting the government you have rather than fantasizing about the government you wished you had.” Sen. John McCain is expected to become the next chairman of the Armed Services Committee. McCain is a vocal critic of President Obama for being too soft on foreign policy.

Obama and the Dems Racial Politics—a Desperate Election Play – Yahoo News

King also cites the lamentable fact that only 52 percent of black males graduate high school and that blacks earn on average $21,000 less than the national average. King is a pro-life activist who says that if the African-American community was better educated on the issues, they might not be such reliable Democrat voters. Related: Democrats Just Lost the Phony War on Women True or not, it is discouraging to see that blacks are driven more by racial issues than by policy considerations. Nearly four in five Americans think that politicians play the race card simply to get votes. Only 9 percent think that politicians raise racial issues to address real problems according to Rasmussen. While only 41 percent of all voters say that race is at least somewhat important to their vote, nearly 80 percent of blacks say it is important.

Obama vows to work with Republican Congress – Yahoo News

The White House is asking for prompt action, meaning it wants approval during the current lame duck session, while Democrats are still in control of the Senate. It wants the money on an “emergency” basis, meaning it should be added to the deficit. Republicans, if they agree the money is needed, may press for spending cuts elsewhere in the budget. Republicans have been especially critical of the administration’s domestic response, criticizing its coordination with states and link questioning the security measures it has put in place. Still, less than a handful of cases have materialized in the United States. One patient who contracted the disease in Liberia died in Dallas, two nurses who treated him became infected but eventually recovered and one doctor who returned from West Africa where he was treating Ebola patients became sick and is now under care in a hospital in New York City.

“I’m eager to work with the new Congress to make the next two years as productive as possible,” Obama said, while warning that there may still be some legislation that he would feel obliged to veto. “That’s natural. That’s how our democracy works,” he said. “But we can surely find ways to work together on issues where there’s broad agreement among the American people.” Obama said that his first requests to the new Congress would be for help in battling the spread of Ebola in West Africa and beyond, and for support for US-led military action against jihadists in Iraq and Syria. “First, I’ve submitted a request to Congress for funding to ensure that our doctors, scientists, and troops have the resources that they need to combat the spread of Ebola in Africa and to increase our preparedness for any future cases here at home,” Obama said. That request is for more than $6 billion in emergency funding to fight the deadly epidemic.
