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 9/27/17   5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9   Support Health Care Rights   Even with the (apparent as of the writing of this list on the morning of 9/27) failure of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, we’re still concerned that the administration has pulled funding from the Affordable Care Act’s advertising budget—essentially attempting to “prove” the vital program is failing by keeping citizens from knowing when and how to enroll for 2018. We cannot let this tactic work. Join the thunderclap to remind members in your community of the upcoming ACA signup dates via your social media platforms.   Our governor still has not signed HB40 into law, despite the fact that it’s been on his desk, confirmed by both the state house and senate, for months. This law protects the reproductive rights of Illinois residents regardless of any future federal legislation, and it’s vital for women’s he

IL-9 Action Newsletter 10/4/17   5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9   Support Fellow Americans in Puerto Rico   Weeks after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, residents on the island are still suffering from catastrophic living conditions: only 5% of the island’s power supply has been restored, much of the island is without running water, and residents are waiting in line for hours to purchase food. Relief is needed, and two organizations—United for Puerto Rico and UNICEF—are doing the work to ensure Puerto Ricans get what they need as the island works toward recovery. Donate what you can.   Even once hurricane recovery is eventually complete in Puerto Rico, our fellow Americans who live on the island have additional longstanding financial and legislative strikes against them. Sign this petition from MoveOn.org to demonstrate your support of alleviating Puerto Rican debt and outdated legislation that negatively impacts lives and

Callers will be reaching out to people in red states critical to any vote on the Graham-Cassidy plan, encouraging those residents to call their Senators and demand they vote “no” on this repeal plan. Clear a bit of time in your schedule to make some calls, and RSVP on Facebook.   No one would blame you for feeling whiplash from the rapid succession of terrible repeal-and-replace health care plans that Republicans have been sponsoring in the Senate. Take a few minutes to read up on the latest suggested legislation—the Graham-Cassidy plan mentioned above, which is the last ditch effort before parameters for passing health care legislation change September 30—so you can be informed in the conti

Volunteers are needed to go out and garner petition signatures aimed at ensuring Jan Schakowsky and other Democrats will be on our 2018 ballots. Upcoming times for circulating petitions are this weekend, and you can sign up to help on Jan’s website.   Support DACA Renewals   The president’s executive order travel bans over the winter brought out a flood of immigration lawyers stationing themselves at airports to be able to help travelers in need. Now a similar type of support is needed for DACA recipients (a.k.a. Dreamers) whose current DACA status is set to expire between now and March 5, 2018. Lawyers—regardless of whether they have immigration law experience—are
