Schakowsky Announces New Budget Plan With Focus On Jobs


Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, announced on Wednesday that she will introduce a progressive-minded budget outline aimed at putting more than two million people to work.

It would also eliminate subsidies for ...
