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 ...

I won't even try to sugarcoat it
I won't even try to sugarcoat what happened on Election Day. It was the most shocking and disappointing Presidential election in my lifetime.  I waited to communicate with you, after getting some sleep and going from despair to fierce determination to battle on.  And that is why I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for enabling me to serve another term as Congresswoman and to fight another day. Even my race got pretty ugly, but our 2-1 victory was decisive!  Team Schakowsky was utterly amazing. We contributed mightily to victories for Senator-elect Tammy Duckworth and Brad Schneider, who will now return to Congress from Illinois' 10th District. In the fundraising effort led by the fantastic Sarah Gersten, I was able to contribute to 63 campaigns around the country and travel to many of them. THANK YOU for responding to our many requests!  And, of course, we played a major role in Hillary Clinton's race. I consider her "our Moses,&r
