Republican Debt-Ceiling Madness Is About to Begin Again

“When Democrats occupy the White House, Republicans use the debt ceiling to demand spending cuts, and to hold the government, and the country, for ransom.”

Holding the debt limit hostage could have dire economic consequences for Americans.

County exec race begins to take shape; McMurray mulls primary

Mark Poloncarz has set the gold standard for county executives, particularly since the onset of a historic pandemic that severely tested government at every level.

Three years later, Erie County’s finances have never been in better order - as evidenced by the unanimous, bipartisan approval of the county’s 2023 budget - and our county is growing for the first time in a half-century.

The Republican Party has shown that it cannot govern, and voters won’t be impressed by opportunists who snipe from the social media sidelines.

There is no one better suited to keep our community moving forward than County Executive Mark Poloncarz.

Democrat Mark C. Poloncarz is widely viewed as planning for an unprecedented fourth term while showing every indication of running again.

Bangladeshis represent entry of another key ethnic group to Buffalo politics

"Immigration has enriched Buffalo for two-and-a quarter centuries. The faces and languages change, but the benefits continue to accrue.”

Buffalo absorbs still another immigrant community into its politics, with Bangladeshis voting, holding patronage positions and even forming a Buffalo Bangladeshi Democratic Club.

In living their fantasy, election deniers are also economy deniers

“…these days a vast majority of Republicans in the House are either extremists or opportunists willing to go along with whatever the extremists want. It's important, however, to realize that GOP economic views are almost as divorced from reality as their political fantasies are.”

The people who will be running the House of Representatives for the next two years – a group that does not, as far as anyone can tell, include Kevin McCarthy,

Kevin McCarthy elected House Speaker, breaking historic deadlock

“The days-long struggle to choose a speaker has raised fears across the Capitol that McCarthy may not be able to manage his narrow majority or effectively govern.”

And the insurrectionists and election deniers say “mission accomplished.”

For the first time this week, McCarthy's allies sounded optimistic that they had enough support within the Republican Party to elect him speaker.

Congratulations, Chair April Baskin For Erie County, and thank you for your outstanding leadership!

Congratulations, Chair April Baskin For Erie County, and thank you for your outstanding leadership!

As I watch the merry-go-round in our nation’s capital, with the vote for Speaker of the House obscuring the historic appointment of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries to the highest leadership post held by an African-American, I can’t help but appreciate the unanimous support of my fellow legislators to again serve as Chairperson of the Erie County Legislature. Building relationships on both sides of the aisle takes intentionality and a willingness from all members of the body to put the needs of the residents first. I am glad we have that sense of responsibility in Erie County government. I'd like to thank my colleagues for their votes today, especially Majority Leader Tim Meyers and the rest of the members of the Democratic Majority, and Minority Leader Mills for being the first signature on my petition. I remain hopeful for Representative Jeffries, and I wish the Speaker of the New York State Assembly, Carl Heastie, Buffalo Common Council President Pridgen and all lawmakers across New York State charged with the privilege and responsibility of presiding over a legislative body, a year of peace, productivity and equity for all residents who they are elected to serve.

Hey, I want to vote but where can I find Dem candidates' statements about their positions on the issues?
I've been trying to get some information on applying for positions with the board of elections. I am currently a poll inspector and would like to take on more responsibilities and apply for other positions. I haven't been able to get a straight answer from any of the employees in those roles. I keep hearing that it's mandatory to volunteer with your organization to be allowed to apply for those positions. Is this true? Can you shed some light on this situation? I want to further my career with the board of elections
https://www.change.org/Stefanik2Resign

Please sign and share my petition demanding Elise Stefanik resign from office and be held accountable for her role in the domestic terror attack at the US Capitol Building.

Elise and her cohorts' continued support for Donald Trump and his insidious lies empowered the events that took place. As an elected official she must now answer to us.

🇺🇸 Vote Joe Biden For President 2020! 🇺🇸
🇺🇸 Vote Nate McMurray for Congress 🇺🇸

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal
MAILBAG: McMurray, Biden are best choices for workers in WNY
Oct 23, 2020

The last line of defense against the incredible power of corporate America are trade-unions that fight for the working class. Union endorsement, a “seal of approval,” conveys a lot about values and intentions of political candidates regarding the issues that most affect working people like: social security, Medicare, good/fair wages.

Joe Biden and Nate McMurray are strong voices for labor and will defend workers, fight for healthcare for all and to mitigate the disastrous effects of climate change. Trump and career politicians like Nate’s opponent Chris Jacobs have shown they aim to do the opposite. Trump’s tax cut and regulation changes heavily favor corporations, not workers. Jacobs, a multimillionaire, a big business guy, out of touch with the middle class, has aligned himself 100% with Trump and against working families.

Here are examples of Jacobs votes that do not serve the interests of regular people like us. He voted against the USPS; against reinstating extended unemployment benefits and state and local funding to keep local taxes down; against pay raises for enlisted military; against parental legal power in cases of racial discrimination in schools; against expansion of energy grants to rural electricity cooperatives; and against against saving tax dollars by funding National Parks with fees from mining companies!

Nate McMurray’s long list of union endorsements are listed on his website. They include: AFSCME NY Council 66, American Federation of Government Employees, American Federation of Teachers, American Postal Workers Union, Buffalo AFL-CIO, Buffalo Building and Construction Trades Council, Buffalo Teachers Federation, Communications Workers of America, IUPAT District Council 4, International Association of Machinists, National Association of Letter Carriers, Niagara County Building and Construction Trades Council, NYS AFL-CIO, NYS Nurses Association, New York State United Teachers, United Food and Commercial Workers, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, SEIU 1199, United Auto Workers and WNY AFL-CIO.

Jacobs works for himself and his political career, not the constituents of NY-27. McMurray will do neither and has proven that in his position as town supervisor of Grand Island, where his first act was to impose term limits on his own political office.

People are onto the self-described Trump sycophant Jacobs, who has only two union endorsements: National Federation of Independent Business and New York State Troopers PBA.

McMurray is the endorsed candidate of Labor for good reason. Like Biden, he comes from humble working-class beginnings, he understands our needs. Both have strong plans for job growth, so desperately needed in ours, the worst job market in the US. Jacobs was a New York state senator for years. Ask yourself why he hasn’t improved our job market in NY-27 in all that time. McMurray will defend us and bring jobs to the region in this continued struggle.

Vote for Nate McMurray and Joe Biden for working families who always comprise the backbone of a vibrant economy — one we so desperately need to build in Western New York.

How do I get a Biden Harris yard sign? I left a message at HQ a couple days ago and no one called me back.
Miss that movie experience?

I know it's a long drive, but I'm heading to Warsaw on Wednesday for this premiere and video event.

Hope you can go too!
