BREAKING NEWS: Bucshon Refuses Congressional Candidate Richard Moss’ Debate Challenge

first_imgBucshon Refuses Congressional Candidate Richard Moss’ Debate ChallengeBucshon Ducks the Debate – and the Voters!More Campaign Tricks by a DC politicianJasper, IN – the Moss For Congress Campaign received this notice from a Bucshon staffer regarding our invitation to a debate made weeks ago through multiple offices, emails, and phone calls.From: “Info Bucshon for Congress” Date: Mar 24, 2016 4:18 PMSubject: Re: Indiana Eighth Congressional District Primary Election Candidate Debate“Given the late nature of this request, we will not be able to accommodate. The Congressman has a busy schedule next week traveling the district and meeting with constituents. We appreciate you reaching out and hope the Congressman will have an opportunity to speak to your group in the near future. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything.”The only problem with this off-putting response is that multiple attempts to contact the Bucshon campaign were made by phone and email including to his Evansville district office and campaign website going back weeks. And each time our campaign was given the run around, leading up to this final dismissive and patronizing email note from the Bucshon campaign regarding how busy the beloved Congressman is. His schedule indicates that he will be in Evansville the day of the debate meeting with the Vanderburgh County Republicans Women’s Group. He had plenty of advance notice and opportunity to respond but for his own imagined political purposes, chose not to – until this summary, off-handed dismissal.None of this is unexpected. Bucshon has better things to do. Ensconced in office, enjoying the advantages of incumbency, self-satisfied, smug, secure, well funded, abundant resources, the perks of high office, a large staff and budget, the Congressman has grown complacent and insulated. He doesn’t have to confront his opponent in a debate or meet the constituents other than in controlled, staged settings. He prefers not to pick through the various votes he has taken in nearly six years in Congress that have done enormous damage to the 8th District, Indiana, and the nation. I would understand his hesitation. Friendly Lincoln Day Dinners as keynote speaker without being challenged would be more to his liking.The contrast with the national level though is striking. Republican Presidential candidates have, for better or worse, submitted to a swarm of debates (perhaps too many) as the country well knows. National candidates known throughout the land appear on major media venues daily. But Indiana’s 8th district Congressman, Larry Bucshon, Republican Party, can’t be bothered. Or, perhaps, he thinks it’s not to his advantage? Or, maybe, he’s afraid?The Congressman has gone the way of the professional career politician, co-opted by the Republican Establishment, the DC crowd, the Ruling Class that looks down on the “rubes” back home – the conservative base that gets them elected. He went to Washington, received his marching orders from Republican leadership, got in bed with consultants and lobbyists, and fast became another DC guy – cutting deals, growing government, and plundering the country.But what the Congressman does not seem to realize is that there is a great wave of discontent building throughout the land and here in southwestern Indiana as well. Two outsiders, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, now vie for the Republican nomination for President. The “Establishment” crowd has fallen away: Jeb Bush, Chris Christy, Marco Rubio, and the sanctimonious and self-centered hanger-on John Kasich (who has no chance of winning but stays on anyway for purely selfish reasons). They’ve all been crushed by the discontent and frustration that is roiling the country, the disconnect and anger between the Republican Establishment in Washington and the voters that sent them there. We conservatives, the voters, the American people are tired of a Republican Party that campaigns one way and votes another. That makes promises they have no intentions of keeping. That serves as the Republican Wing of the Democrat Party. We have had it with housebroken, mush Republicans that do what they are told, and vote for more debt, more government, more socialism, more tyranny, while bankrupting future generations – yet still enjoying the perks, power, and prestige of office. A good life. But completely out of touch.Dr. Bucshon is a liberal Republican. He campaigns like a conservative at home, but votes like a liberal in Washington. Why is that Larry? Because he goes along to get along. Because capitulation and surrender have become a habit. In the meantime the nation teeters on the precipice. We recognize that status quo, establishment politicians like Bucshon can no longer be tolerated for the sake of the nation. We cannot abide the ongoing bankrupting of the country by career types who impose crushing burdens on our children to empower themselves today. Bucshon and other Republicans like him do not have the stomach for the fight that is needed to save the country. I suspect he does not even realize the extent of the peril that confronts us. And so it is time for him and the others to get out of the way and allow others to take up the banner.Congressman Bucshon has no intention of debating me. He will come up with one lame excuse after another about what a busy guy he is. He will duck the debate. And he will duck the voters, and the issues. Despite claiming to be non-political, just a Doctor who decided to run for office back in 2010, he has become another quintessential member of the ruling class, the Republican Party Establishment – a newly minted DC career politician.But this election is different. The wave of discontent and anger runs here in Indiana too. Bucshon cannot escape it or hide from it. Excuses will not save him. We will challenge him publically and through proper channels again, just as we did this time. We will give him adequate time to respond to our debate challenge as we did this time. And we will find out if he prefers to duck the voters, the issues, and me once more.But we will have our “debate” either way. Including this one, scheduled weeks ago. Come join us. It is on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 630 PM, at the Eykamp Scout Center, 3501 E. Lloyd Expressway, Evansville, IN. Refreshments will be served. Be there. We will take questions from the audience. There will be a debate of sorts, and a discussion – with or without the Congressman.“Our nation is at the precipice. Time is running out. We cannot afford business as usual or the status quo. Our country is slipping through our fingers. It is time for a change for Indiana’s 8th district. I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary May 3 2016. I will be your conservative champion in Washington. I will not let you down. Thank you.”Find out more about Dr. Moss at  Call or email at 812-684-0971 or [email protected]  Find Moss For Congress on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

AP4’s Ekvall calls for AP funds to have direct investment tools

first_imgThe chief executive of Sweden’s AP4 has called on the country’s legislators to give the funds the direct investment tools they need to make use of proposed new investment freedoms.Niklas Ekvall said in the fund’s newly-published annual report: “We are to be given the opportunity but not the tools, which we find hard to believe is the intention.”He referred to the proposed change in the investment rules for Sweden’s five AP funds, which invest capital to support the country’s first pillar pension schemes. The rules are currently going through the legislative process.Ekvall praised the proposal for allowing more flexibility in terms of allocation between different types of investment, with the key elements being a reduced requirement to hold liquid and high-quality interest-bearing securities and increased scope to invest in illiquid assets. “It is important, however, that this modernisation at the allocation level is followed by the corresponding level of modernisation of investment and instrument types in order not to significantly limit the more flexible allocation mandate, and impose unnecessarily expensive management,” Ekvall said. Niklas Ekvall, chief executive, AP4It was particularly important that the AP funds had the opportunity to make long-term and cost-effective direct investments such as joint ventures in unlisted companies, as well as investments in infrastructure, unlisted loans, and long-term sustainable assets.Ekvall made similar comments in the pension fund’s consultation response last autumn.The reform – part of a broader pensions overhaul in Sweden – is scheduled to take effect this summer.In financial results, AP4 reported it made a 9.1% net return on investment in 2017, on the back of “generally favourable performance for the global equity markets”.This return matches the return posted by AP2 earlier this month.AP4 said it would continue developing sustainable investments in its focus areas of climate, environment, and corporate governance.“Our low-carbon strategies increased to almost 31% of the global equity portfolio during 2017,” Ekvall said. This compared to 24% of the portfolio a year earlier.He said AP4 intended to increase these investments further and also widen the scope of sustainable investments.“We are doing this to lower the risk in the portfolio and create conditions for better returns,” he said.AP4’s total assets increased to SEK356.6bn (€35.6bn) at the end of 2017, from SEK333.9bn a year earlier.last_img read more

However, he recently said that he is happy at Barca, where he has spent his whole career, while the club are optimistic of agreeing a new contract with him soon.Ter Stegen, meanwhile, has two years to run on his deal, which expires in 2022, but his role at the club has greatly changed since he signed his last renewal in 2017. After Messi, many people now feel the goalkeeper is the most important player in Quique Setien’s team.The Germany international is happy at the club but Barca will have to show him how much they value him to ensure that remains the case.Pep Guardiola desperately tried to take him to Manchester City in 2016 before eventually signing Claudio Bravo instead, with Barca backing Ter Stegen over the Chilean, who had been their No. 1 in La Liga for the previous two seasons. Sources have told ESPN that, more recently, Juventus have shown an interest.Reports earlier this week even suggested that Ter Stegen could leave at the end of the season but sources close to the player insist that is not the case.Messi and Sergio Busquets are among those to have criticised the club in recent weeks as the rift between the players and the board widens and Ter Stegen also feels there are areas where things can be improved. However, his preference is to stay at Camp Nou. Barca are finalising their plans for the summer, when they will invest heavily in the squad, with Neymar and Lautaro Martinez among their top targets, before turning their attention to renewing some of the team’s key players. Barcelona will offer Marc-Andre ter Stegen an improved contract before the end of the year to reflect his growing importance at the club, multiple sources have told ESPN.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also: Salah: Best option to replace Messi at Barcelona – McManamanIn a 2018 interview with ESPN, Ter Stegen said that he feels “more and more Catalan” all the time and he has recently moved into a new house in Castelldefels, which he helped design.
