Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – January 27th, 2018

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – As many of you know, last Friday at midnight, the government shut down. The Democrats in the Senate showed their constituents, and every American, that they chose to forgo funding for our military, our elderly, and our children in order to fulfill their political agenda.

And if you remember, this was an agenda that President Trump was very clear on. The President told the Democrats that if they wanted a DACA deal, then they had to come to the negotiation table. Once there was funding for the border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end of the visa lottery system, President Trump would allow a DACA deal.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of October 4th, 2015

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The economic data were mixed, but consistent with the theme of global softness and domestic strength. Unit auto sales improved further in September – and, combined with the August data on personal income and spending, suggest that inflation-adjusted consumer spending (70% of GDP) is on track to have expanded at an annual pace of 3.5% to 4.0% in 3Q15.

The trade deficit in goods widened sharply in August, with that split evenly between stronger imports (despite lower oil prices) and weaker exports. Net exports and an inventory correction are expected to subtract significantly from 3Q15 GDP growth, but underlying domestic demand appears to have remained strong.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 27th, 2015

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – In Janet Yellen’s first public speech after the recent FOMC meeting, the Fed chair downplayed concerns about the rest of the world and placed herself among the majority of Fed officials expecting to raise short-term interest rates by the end of the year. In a scary moment for investors, Yellen struggled to finish her speech.

She repeatedly lost her place, paused for long periods, and looked generally unwell. She received medical treatment. A Fed spokesperson said that she was dehydrated and that she felt fine later. While stock market participants have been worried about Fed tightening, they seemed to have been more encouraged by Yellen’s expressed confidence in the U.S. economy.
