Jan Schakowsky


Rep. Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) is a leader on health care reform and taking on the pharmaceutical industry. She played an instrumental role in passing the Affordable Care Act, and has spent her career fighting to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. Schakowsky chairs the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and is Vice Chair of the Democracy Reform Task Force.

In office, Schakowsky helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.

Reformer at Risk?

No Corporate PAC?
