POLITICS 02/11/2019 11:20 am ET Updated 51 minutes ago Nearly 70 House Democrats now back the resolution. By Alexander C. Kaufman Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.) is backing the Green New Deal. On Monday the moderate Long Island Democrat told HuffPost he plans to add his name to the nearly 70 House Democrats co-sponsoring the sweeping resolution that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) released last Thursday. “Rep. Suozzi supports the Green New Deal,” said Jay Bhargava, Suozzi’s press secretary. Suozzi’s support is notable because he occupies a seat on the influential House Committee on Ways and Means, the oldest congressional decision-making panel, with jurisdiction over taxation, international trade agreements and social insurance programs like Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits. The joint resolution stakes out an ambitious agenda for any Green New Deal legislation, calling for eliminating … [Read more...] about Tom Suozzi, Moderate Democrat On Powerful Economic Committee, Backs Green New Deal

POLITICS 01/11/2019 08:59 pm ET The Hawaii congresswoman claims to represent the rising left but has ties to authoritarianism and Islamophobia abroad. By Akbar Shahid Ahmed Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) told CNN on Friday that she definitely will seek the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, ending months of speculation. Her bid makes sense on its face: Democrats swept the 2018 midterm elections with a crop of young candidates like Gabbard, many of them with public service backgrounds and from historically underrepresented communities. (She is a military veteran and was the first Hindu member of Congress.) Much of the party also associates her with the ongoing revolt against its establishment. In 2016, she surrendered a plum Democratic National Committee post so she could endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and argue top Democrats were unfairly helping former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton secure the party’s presidential nomination. … [Read more...] about Tulsi Gabbard’s 2020 Plan Threatens The New Left Foreign Policy Of Sanders And Warren
This feature is part of The Local's Sweden in Focus series, taking an in-depth look at the issues that make this country tick. Click here to read more articles. Forming a government is typically a speedy process in Sweden, particularly compared to its European neighbours. A system of negative parliamentarism means proposed governments do not, technically, need a single vote in favour – all that is required for their survival is for a majority of MPs not to vote against them. On Wednesday, parliament will vote on a government led by centre-right leader Ulf Kristersson. Unless any of Sweden's parties have a major change of heart at the last second, he will become the first PM candidate to lose such a vote. "In a way, what's really surprising is the amount of time that's passed since the election and the fact that the parties are still in the same locked positions as they were before," Johan Hellström, a senior politics lecturer at Umeå University, tells The Local. … [Read more...] about Sweden in Focus: How did the political situation get to where it is today?
