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 ...

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.

IL-9 Action Newsletter 5/3/17   5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9   Make Voting Easier   There are currently four separate bills (IL HB 626; IL HB 3182; IL HB 3695; IL SB 1933) that have been introduced in the Illinois House and Senate that would implement an automatic voter registration system in the state; that is, any person who successfully applies for or updates their Illinois driver’s license or state ID card would be notified that they will be registered to vote. This opt-out procedure streamlines voter registration for Illinois residents, rather than requiring them to fill out additional paperwork mailed to them after visiting the DMV. Contact your state senator and representative to urge them to support legislation that will simplify voter registration in Illinois; here’s a tool to find contact info for your state legislators.
