How 2016 General Elections Will Affect the Private Sector Business and Middle Class

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 19, 2015) - Despite the discomfort from the new Republican majority-ran Congress for House and Senate, there remain several independent thinkers that are looking ahead and getting prepared for 2016 elections. Since November 2014 elections and last month's President Obama's State of the Union Address there have been swarms of political ads and social media content that are election candidate drafting for everyone from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Hillary Clinton, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

American businesses and non-profit organizations around the U.S. continue to build awareness events and meetings that discuss concerning matters of the community as minimum wage increases, veteran benefits, climate change, and social security. Every Vote Counts -Restoring America partnered with Independent National Party Committee in Twin Cities, Minnesota for its first annual awareness forum on voter and veteran awareness in hopes to encourage students, minorities, and members of military families to 'register to vote'. Meanwhile, February has delivered more independent progress since Independent Party of Oregon announced that they were officially confirmed as a major party on Oregon's state and federal election ballot.

Political figures as former Department of Labor Secretary Robert Riech and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg are two of many politicians who have shared their own opinions on the future of the work force and economy at the current status and after 2016 elections. All of the current issues that they're discussing tend to sway towards insinuative predictions on the future for (1) unemployment, social security, and labor unions, (2) armed forces, and (3) healthcare; a total of 72 percent of President Obama's Proposed $4.1 Trillion Spending Budget for 2016 [collectively], as reported by Office of Management and Budget.

A temporary win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who displayed mutual satisfaction following the signing of a bill authorizing expansion of the Keystone XL pipeline on February 13 appeared to have beat the odds of veto luck for the time being. Hence, President Obama's position to veto Keystone XL pipeline 'remain as marginal as a young child asking their parents for candy before bedtime', as stated in a press interview last week with Independent National Committee Chairman Cary Lee Peterson, who also confirmed records from Federal Election Commission that Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 Super PAC is 'live and active.'

Sen. Sanders recently told MSNBC News host Steve Kornaki his feedback at the Progressive Summit and remains loyal in his statements to support social security, increase in minimum wage, and overall economic enhancement of the middle class. Whereas, Sanders stated that he definitely would not attempt to speak for Hilary Clinton on her points of view on the subject (suggesting Kornaki to 'ask Clinton'). Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was invited to the 2015 Progressive Summit but was not present at that time for comment.
