GOPUSA ILLINOIS
-- Attendees at Paul Hinds' fundraiser at Medinah Banquets in Addison Thursday evening September 18, 2014 included Valle, Wilkins, Minor, Keller, Dabrowski, Krajewski, Foltyniewich, Zay, Fichtner, Kinsella, Puchalski, Kordik, Morrissey, Bucholz, King, Schroeder, Durante, Muelhfelt, LeVan, Brennan, Musson, Painter, Kain, Tornatore, Eckhoff, Hovde, Noonan, Cantore, Levato, Czernek, Moretti, Pineda, Zaruba, Marsha Murphy, Salerno, Ruscitti, Olsen, Popejoy, Kaske, Willey, Larsen, Marchese, Cuzzone, Ludwig, DiCianni, Korynecky, Morley, and Berlin.  I am sure that the event was outstanding.  Needless-to-say, Hinds is an outstanding candidate and party leader.  He is immanently qualified for the DuPage County Clerk office that he seeks.  The September 18, 2014 GOPUSA ILLINOIS Evening Edition email included links to 54 articles from 26 websites.  Putting that email together and sending it to you at 8:30 PM prevented me from attending the fundraiser. - Dave Diersen

-- Yellen: U.S. families need to boost savings - MARTIN CRUTSINGER
http://www.suntimes.com/business/29959766-420/us-families-need-to-boost-savings-yellen.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Great Recession showed that a large number of American families are “extraordinarily vulnerable” to financial setbacks because they have few assets to fall back on, Federal Reserve chairman Janet Yellen said Thursday.  Yellen said a Fed survey found that an unexpected expense of just $400 would force the majority of American families to borrow money, sell something or simply not pay. “The financial crisis and the Great Recession demonstrated, in a dramatic and unmistakable manner, how extraordinarily vulnerable are the large share of American families with few assets to fall back on,” Yellen said in a Washington speech. She said the bottom fifth of households by income — about 25 million households — had median net worth in 2013 of just $6,400, and many of these families had nothing saved or negative net worth, meaning their debts were greater than their assets. Yellen said that the Fed’s 2013 Survey of Consumer Finances, an in-depth analysis of family wealth, found that the next one-fifth of households had a net worth of only $27,900 in 2013 and that both of the bottom two-fifths of households had seen declines in net worth since the Fed’s last survey in 2010. She said one reason for this decline was that incomes for these families had continued to decline. “For many lower-income families without assets, the definition of a financial crisis is a month or two without a paycheck, or the advent of a sudden illness or some other unexpected expense,” Yellen said.)

-- Congressional candidates downplay time in Congress - Aamer Madhani

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2014/09/17/brad-schneider-bob-dold-campaign-ads-washington-outsiders/15741543/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In one of the most hotly contested congressional campaigns in the country, Democrat Brad Schneider and Republican Bob Dold are doing their best to frame themselves as Washington outsiders. In fact, in their early television ads for the race to represent Illinois' 10th congressional District, neither Schneider, who currently holds the seat, nor Dold, who served one term before being beaten by Schneider in 2012, even bother mentioning their time in Congress. With Congress' approval rating standing at about 14%, candidates like Dold, Schneider and just about every other congressional aspirant mired in a tight race during this election cycle seems to be taking pains to frame themselves as far outside the Beltway as they can, analysts say. "There's a sense that being tied to an institution with such low approval is bad strategy," said Michael Franz, co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project, which tracks and analyzes campaign advertising. Franz, who called the Dold and Schneider ads "very slick," said the strategy is a continuation of careful wordplay seen in the 2012 House and Senates races in which analysts noticed that candidates avoided using the word "Congress.")
