Indian-American Manju Goel to run for US Congress

Sep 10 2013, 4:19am CDT | by IANS

Chicago, Sep 10 (IANS) Taking aim at "Obamacare" and the national debt, India-born Manju Goel is seeking Republican nomination for a Congressional run to challenge incumbent Democrat Tammy Duckworth.

Chicago, Sep 10 — Taking aim at "Obamacare" and the national debt, India-born Manju Goel is seeking Republican nomination for a Congressional run to challenge incumbent Democrat Tammy Duckworth.

Goel, an Aurora resident and conservative is backed by a national group of Republicans, including Texas congressman Pete Sessions, in her run for 8th Congressional District of Illinois state, according to Chicago Daily Herald

Outlining her campaign platform at a rally in Elk Grove Village Sunday, Goel took particular aim at "Obamacare," which she called the "biggest of all job killers."

"Obamacare has to go, and Tammy Duckworth must go," she said asserting that neither patients nor doctors like Obama's signature legislation Affordable Health Care Act, dubbed Obamacare.

"America is on the wrong track," she was quoted as saying. "We are spending $1.60 for every dollar we bring in. We are discouraging rather than encouraging entrepreneurs and job creators with burdensome regulations."

In her campaign literature, Goel said she grew up in a middle-class family in northern India and came to the United States at the age of 21.

She has degrees in applied computer science and health care management and served as a process improvement specialist for Advocate Healthcare. Today, she works as a self-employed consultant specializing in process control improvement.

Goel arrived at the event with her backers, Sessions, the former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, and Carol Stream Indian-American businessman Shalli Kumar, Herald said.

Both Sessions and Kumar are chairing a project to field 10 Indian-American Republican Congressional candidates.

During the 2012 campaign, Kumar and other businessmen established an Indian-American SuperPAC to support Duckworth's opponent in the general election, former congressman Joe Walsh, the Herald reported.

On Tuesday morning’s early morning coverage of U.S. air strikes on ISIS targets in Syria, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow expressed her skepticism on a number of different levels as to whether or not this action was proper given strategic and legal concerns. Among her questions, Maddow wondered what sort of reactions to the strikes might come, whether or not it would be effective, if they were putting civilians in harm’s way and if the strikes were legal.

Is It Me?

Sep 22 2014 11:13am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

A few days or so ago my iPhone pinged me with a message from one newspaper or another; congress has authorized the arming of rebels in Syria. I thought about it for a while. Weren't ISIS rebels that were armed once upon a time? Who are these new rebels? Does anyone even know what the hell is going on there that we can give this or that guy MORE weapons? This, to me, seems like a ploy by the military industrial ...

The Fix: Diversity is coming to Congress — very, very slowly

Sep 13 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

If a number of things fall into place and the right people win a few key races come November, the United States Congress could -- could! -- be comprised of 20 percent women in 2015. That's according to analysis done by Time magazine of Rutgers University's Center for American Women and Politics, which earlier this week outlined the gender composition of the 2014 field of candidates. The Senate is already at 20 percent, but the ...
