Mon, Feb 6, 2023 at 12:56 pm

( ) -q-21- UNDATED (Correspondent Jeremy House) “countries in Europe.'”

French President Emmanuel Macron’s unpopular planned pension changes are being debated at parliament, after they prompted massive strikes and street demonstrations in recent weeks.

[CutID: <Cuts> FRANCE-PENSION-REFORM-house-q-MONam.mp3
Time: 21s
Title: FRANCE-PENSION-REFORM-house-q-MONam
Out-cue: countries in Europe]

TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Macron’s centrist alliance seeks to ally with right-wing Republicans, since the conservatives in recent years have pushed for raising the retirement age and appear inclined to vote in favor of the bill.

——————————–
VERBATIM: The contested bill would notably raise the minimum retirement age from 62 to 64. A third round of protests has been called on Tuesday by eight main workers’ unions and another one is scheduled on Saturday. Macron vowed to go ahead with the changes, which he described last week as “indispensable when you compare to other countries in Europe.”

Poll: Dems don’t want a Biden reelection bid in 2024

Mon, Feb 6, 2023 at 10:55 am
A majority of Democrats don’t want President Biden on the ticket in 2024. As the president makes plans for a reelection bid, members of his own political party are increasingly looking for someone else. A new AP-NORC poll shows just 37 percent of Democrats say they want Mr. Biden to seek a second term. That’s down sharply from last fall. The poll indicates that age is a factor. Only one in four Democrats under the age of 45 wants the president –who is 80 years old– to run for the White House again.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.
