This week, Rep. Jan Schakowsky will be holding several public events in the greater Chicago area that are open to the press. These events will highlight the funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) that are coming to our communities.

Earlier in the week, Rep. Schakowsky will host a round table forum on health care, specifically health care for women. The panel consists of local and national experts, and is the first in a series of similar meetings that will be held throughout the country prior to the health care reform debate in Congress.

Janice, are you trying to demonstrate that you are an idiot? The Tea Parties are not "right wing" anything any more than you are a 'left wing radical'.

The right to peacefully gather to protest is part of America's heritage. How dare you find fault with this? Are you suggesting that only protests of which YOU approve, are to be allowed?

Did you speak out about the anti-war protests in this country over the past five years?

Did you speak out when students at Columbia university dared to interfere with the right of the Minute Men to speak on that Campus that uses federal funding?

Did you speak out against the rabble rousing, know-nothing, do-nothing students at UNC that decided they had the right to interfere with the free speech of a former congressman on the UNC campus?

Are you an American, Janice? Do you believe in free speech? Are you assuming that all who think America is on the wrong path are right wing radicals?

Or just plain stupid? lol

I would love to debate you on all these issues to see which of us is less informed, less aware of American's heritage, and less protective of American's institutions. I don't think you are even a good American.

I think you are a left wing radical. How about that, Janice?

You see there are more opinions that just your's. How do pepole like you get elected anyway. You have no idea of what government is or what freedom is.

You are, in a word, a party hack.
