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. Titled the “Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act,” the plan would cost $227 billion and would be implemented over two years. It would be financed by separate legislation introduced by Schakowsky called the "Fairness in Taxation Act," which would raise taxes for Americans who earn more than $1 million and $1 billion. It would also eliminate subsidies for ...

Schakowsky Blasts Republicans, Promotes Her Jobs Bill

Jan Schakowsky, is an old-fashioned liberal, definitely left of center and proud of it. In a rally last week at the Goudy Elementary, a CPS school, she previewed her “Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act,” a bill unabashedly modeled on FDR’s WPA (Work Progress Administration), which put the unemployed to work repairing and building the Great Depression’s ravaged city- and farm-scapes. In a telephone conversation Thursday from her vacation home in Michigan City, Indiana, Schakowsky told me that she voted against lifting the debt ceiling earlier this month ...

Schakowsky Draws Conservative Ire, Said Americans ...

... 'Don't Deserve To Keep All' Their Money Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) has drawn the ire of a number of conservative bloggers after comments she made about taxes on WLS Chicago's Don Wade and Roma radio show Wednesday. Towards the end of her interview on the program, Wade asked Schakowsky, "Out of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think that I deserve to keep?" -- a question similar to one asked by a high school student during the CNN-Tea Party Express GOP presidential candidate debate earlier this week. "I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all ...

IL-9 Action Newsletter 9/6/17 5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9 Support Dreamers While the president and his administration announced on Tuesday that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program will expire in six months, there’s still plenty you can do to support affected dreamers (the 800,000 immigrants currently on student or work permits through the DACA program) while legislators work to pass a law protecting their status in the United States. Take a look at this resource from the organization Here to Stay and share publicly the ways that current dreamers can legally continue their education and work. Make sure that every dreamer in your community knows their rights and that you stand alongside them.

IL-9 Action Newsletter 8/30/17   5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9   Add Your Name   The president has threatened a government shutdown if he doesn’t get the funding to build the wall along the US/Mexico border as he boasted in his campaign—essentially threatening a tantrum if he doesn’t get what he wants, despite the fact that most Americans and elected officials don’t support the wall in the first place. Add your name to this petition aimed at making sure legislators know the public does not support the wall.   The president has also threatened to eliminate DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which allows undocumented residents who came to the United States as children to receive two-year, renewable permits allowing them to work in the country, contributing to our economy. In Illinois alone, elimination of the DACA program would result in over $2 billion annual losses to our state GDP—and that’s just
