Inimigos honestos são mais dignos de confiança do que amigos oportunistas. (Ulisses Formiga)



Hey, all --
Moments ago, President Obama finished speaking at Faneuil Hall here in Boston. And while it's home to Big Papi and my beloved Red Sox, it's also home to the birthplace of health reform in America.
The state's progressive vision of universal coverage and the conservative idea of market competition are what formed the blueprint for Obamacare: that everyone should have access to quality, affordable health care, and no one should ever go broke just because they get sick.
And we're seeing the benefits of reform extended nationally: According to a new report this week, nearly half of single, uninsured Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 can get coverage for $50 or less, often lower than the cost of their cable bill. That comes on top of the new benefits -- including free preventive services like mammograms, and a prohibition against denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Now HealthCare.gov has experienced its share of bumps in the road, to all of our frustration, but every day people are signing up and getting insurance. President Obama has said many times that he's open to making the health care law work better. If folks could leave the politics aside for a bit -- if Republicans spent as much energy trying to make the law work as they do attacking it -- we could be much further than we are today.
Last week we sat down and spoke with folks who have applied through the Marketplace, and their stories remind me why we fought so hard to pass this law in the first place.
If you want an example of the difference this law will make in someone's life, you don't have to look any further than Janice -- a new registrant from Selbyville, Delaware. She was the first woman to enroll in the Delaware exchange, and she says her new policy will save her $150 a month for more coverage benefits than ever before.
Or David -- a self-employed IT consultant and Air Force veteran living in Washington, D.C. David picked his plan the morning D.C.'s online health insurance marketplace opened. His previous plan was $600 a month. His new one? $250 cheaper.
That's who we're fighting for here. And while it can get lost in the fray of the 24-hour news cycle, I hope you'll keep folks like Janice and David in mind in the weeks and months ahead. It's just too important to lose sight of the big picture.
I know that Game 6 of the World Series is on soon, but this is important:

The New Brazilian Takeover Panel and Listed Company M&A in Brazil


Thursday, November 14, 2013 

The speakers will address the most recent and developments in the market and regulation of listed company M&A.
2013 has seen groundbreaking developments in the M&A market for Brazilian listed companies.  A spate of high-profile acquisitions explored promising new opportunities for deal-making.  The Brazilian Securities Commission issued draft rules overhauling the disclosure requirements for mergers.  But the newly formed Brazilian Takeover Panel (Comitê de Aquisições e Fusões) is arguably the most important innovation in Brazilian equity markets since the creation of the Novo Mercado.  Relying on the explicit support of the Brazilian Securities Commission, the Takeover Panel is designed to oversee mergers and acquisitions involving Brazilian listed companies that have voluntarily submitted to the Code on Mergers and Acquisitions issued by the Takeover Panel.  The speakers will review the events of 2013 and discuss the future workings of the Takeover Panel and Code.

Hello, everyone --
Late Wednesday night, after a 16-day shutdown, the President signed a bill to reopen the government and pay our country's bills. Today, a government shutdown over delaying or defunding the health care law can no longer hurt our economy. We are no longer facing the threat of default.
While this bipartisan compromise is the right thing to do for the country, there are no winners when Washington keeps hijacking our economy month after month.
Nobody wins when hundreds of thousands of people don't know when their next paycheck will come. Nobody wins when millions of veterans and seniors risk losing benefits that they've paid for, earned, and rely on. Nobody wins when businesses stop hiring and our economy grows slower than it could.
Ultimately, the reason this shutdown ended was simple: Democrats and responsible Republicans got together, recognized that holding the American economy hostage should have no place in our politics, and got the job done. They did what the American people elected them to do.
In his remarks, the President asked Congress to focus on finishing three specific policy priorities in the weeks to come.
First, that means passing a budget that invests in the things that will create a better bargain for the middle class -- like educating our children, and improving our infrastructure -- while continuing to cut our deficit in a balanced way.
Second, it means fixing our broken immigration system so everyone plays by the same rules. The Senate has already passed a bill that would continue to strengthen our borders and grow our economy by bringing millions of undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and give them the chance to earn their citizenship by paying a fine and taxes, passing a background check, and going to the back of the line.
And third, it means passing a farm bill that ranching and farming families can rely on: one that protects working families and gives rural communities opportunities to grow.
We'll be back in touch soon with more specific ways that every one of us can support this work. But for now, we should all have the facts on exactly what ending this shutdown means for all of us -- today, and in the weeks to come.
Take a look at the President's remarks from yesterday, and pass them along to the folks you think need to see them:
