Planned Parenthood provides a rebuttal to Carly Fiorina: Planned Parenthood Action Fund executive vice president Dawn Laguens had some strong words for the Republican candidate:

I am writing to tell you directly that your claims are completely false and that the video footage you described simply does not exist. Literally, there is no such scene on any of the heavily edited, widely discredited videos that have been released by anti-abortion extremists.

American incomes shrink:  According to Census Bureau data released earlier this week, the median annual household income in the US has fallen by 1.5 percent to $53,657. More than this, median income is still 6.5 percent lower than it was prior to the financial crisis in 2008.

The good news from the report? The number of Americans without health insurance has dropped to 10.4 percent of the population, down from 13.3 percent in 2013.

 The Fed will raise rates…in December: After deciding not to increase interest rates from zero this week, the Federal Reserve is allegedly ready to raise rates at its December policy meeting. The futures market implied traders see a 42 percent chance that the rate hike will occur in December.
