— LaHOOD’s NOD TO BIDEN. . .REP. DARIN LAHOOD says Joe Biden should be receiving security briefings, a sign he acknowledges the Democrat won the 2020 election. “It is appropriate from a national security perspective for Joe Biden to be afforded access to intelligence and security briefings,” the Republican congressman told Playbook through a spokesman. LaHood’s comment about Biden’s post-election position follows Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who took to Twitter on Nov. 7 to acknowledge Biden’s victory: “Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Our nation deserves two competing parties who can work together when possible, and compete honorably when not.” Other Illinois Republican Party leaders, however, are keeping quiet about their opinions on the outcome of the presidential race. Illinois GOP Executive Director Derek Murphy and party Chairman Tim Schneider didn’t respond to requests for comment, and neither did GOP Reps. Mike Bost (12th), Rodney Davis (13th), or John Shimkus (15th). GOP Rep. Mike Bost tweeted Nov. 8 that he supports Trump’s “efforts to ensure all legal votes are counted… So while Joe Biden & supporters celebrate, our work continues.” Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin and newly named state Senate Minority Leader Dan McConchie said they don’t comment on national security issues. Political strategist Collin Corbett says he’s not surprised some Illinois Republicans are keeping quiet. “Everyone knows Biden has won. It’s a matter of respect [for Trump]. They want to let the guy get through the process.” Corbett, who heads the “right of center” Cor Strategies, expects transfer of power will happen “and it will be peaceful. There’s no sense in angering him in the meantime.” – Shia Kapos

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— How Covid-19 Will Change Aging and Retirement Among other things, expect more aging in place and a wave of innovation to help make that happen – Anne Tergesen
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 7. We need to save more to retire While stocks for now continue to perform well, lower bond yields caused by the pandemic might make it harder to make ends meet on a fixed income. For years, retirees have relied on the so-called 4% rule, which says you can withdraw 4% from your savings in the first year of retirement, and then give yourself an annual raise to account for inflation, without running a big risk of running out of money. For someone with a $1 million portfolio, that formula produced an initial income of $40,000 and—assuming inflation of 2%—an increase to $40,800 in year two. But today’s low bond yields mean future returns are expected to be lower than in the past, says David Blanchett, head of retirement research at Morningstar Inc. Mr. Blanchett says his safe-spending recommendation is now between 3% and 3.5%. That means that someone who wants to safely withdraw $40,000 in the first year of retirement needs to save closer to $1.2 million than $1 million. . .9. We will work longer Since the 1990s, the percentage of people 55 and older in the labor force has risen steadily, to 40% in 2019 from 29% in 1993, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. With bond yields low, stock values high and Social Security in precarious shape, the trend will accelerate. “There’s so much uncertainty about the future…most people are going to continue to work as long as they can,” says Prof. Carstensen. With companies embracing remote work and flexible hours and the gig economy expanding, it’s easier for many older people to remain employed, says Jack Rowe, a professor of public health at Columbia University. Of course, not everyone has the ability to work into their 70s or beyond. Some are in poor health, have jobs they can no longer perform or are victims of age discrimination. “As a society, we will have to provide ways for people who cannot work to receive support, says Prof. Carstensen.”)
