Pete’s Mission

His web site lays out his mission:

I am often asked, “What do the Democrats stand for?”

Well, jobs and infrastructure are certainly top priorities. These are my top 10 priorities afterward. Although there are so many more important goals to reach, I chose these simply because I think these will benefit the largest number of people first.

  1. Enhanced Medicare for All – HR676 and S.1804: The U.S. is the only industrialized country in the world that does not provide basic health care for all. Countries around the world spend less to provide more health care to their citizens; the United States has the most expensive health care in the world, but not the best outcomes.
  2. Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act – S.469 and H.R.1245: To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to allow for the importation of affordable and safe drugs by wholesale distributors, pharmacies, and individuals.
  3. Fight for 15 and the Raise the Wage Act – S.1242 and H.R.15: This bill amends the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to increase the federal minimum wage for regular employees over a 7-year period, for tipped employees, and for newly hired employees who are less than 20 years old.
  4. College for All Act of 2017 – S.806 and H.R.1880: The legislation would eliminate tuition and fees at four-year public colleges and universities for families making up to $125,000 – about 80 percent of the population – and make community college tuition- and fee-free for all.
  5. Dream Act of 2017 – H.R.3440 and S.1615: This bill directs the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to cancel removal and grant lawful permanent resident status on a conditional basis to an alien who is inadmissible or deportable or is in temporary protected status who: (1) has been continuously physically present in the United States for four years preceding this bill’s enactment; (2) was younger than 18 years of age on the initial date of U.S. entry; (3) is not inadmissible on criminal, security, terrorism, or other grounds; (4) has not participated in persecution; (5) has not been convicted of specified federal or state offenses; and (6) has fulfilled specified educational requirements. After the Trump Administration announced the end to an executive branch program that has protected up to 800,000 undocumented immigrants since 2012, Democrats and Republicans have introduced several bills in Congress, each of which would provide a path to documented and legal residence.
  6. Repeal (immediately) and Replace the Trump/Republican Tax Scam
  7. Progressive Income Tax for Illinois to remedy our revenue shortfall and provide property tax relief by properly funding our schools.
  8. Ranked Choice Voting Bill – SB0780: provides that members of the General Assembly and the offices Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, and Treasurer shall be elected by ranked-choice voting allowing voters to rank their choice for candidates for those offices and provides for interpretations of certain ballot marks.
  9. Community Bank of Illinois Act – HB0107: Create the Community Bank of Illinois to for the benefit of farmers, small businesses, borrowers and homeowners that is accountable to the people of the state and operates on their behalf
  10. Restore Net Neutrality and ‘Public Broadband’ through the Illinois Century Network (ICN), a high performance network built to meet the Internet and Intranet needs of the educational, research, governmental and healthcare organizations serving the citizens of Illinois State wide.

I can see the creation of lots of well paying jobs coming out of this.

  1. I’m guessing that symbol on his sign, is old time Hobo Code speak for, ‘Good Place for a Handout’.

  2. Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders fan who says he will ‘do everything to ensure a woman’s right to choose abortion shall not be infringed.’

    He’s confused or is thinking that those that want to murder their babies should have the same Constitutional rights as citizens regarding the second amendment.

    He’s also a Pritzker fan.

    I think that’s all we need to know about this guy.s Loser!

  3. Peter Janko?

    The same Democratic state central committeeman who did not support Mike Madigan’s re-election as state chairman last year?

    And now Janko wants to be part of the House Democratic caucus in the House where Mike Madigan is THE BOSS!?!

    I would look for Madigan, through Jack Franks or someone else, to recruit an alternate Democrat to run for the 63rd.

    Madigan is not going to let the progressives get any more of a foothold in Illinois.

    Between Marie Newman’s plan to challenge Madigan’s own congressman, Dan Lipinski for a rematch of the close congressional primary last year, to State Rep. Anne Stava-Murray’s challenge to run to the left of Senator Dick Durbin (I did not think it was possible to be running more liberal than Durbin), Madigan doesn’t want another radical progressive in Springfield.

    Hope the Republicans can recruit better candidates for the 63rd, and that is regardless of Steve Reick seeking re-election.

  4. Stevie better get his ass into rehab quickly if he wants to
    salvage his career, if at all possible.

  5. The majority of the 10 priorities he lists are are federal matters that are outside the purview of state government.

    He should talk more about what would he do as a state rep.

    Will he pledge right here and now not to vote for Madigan as Speaker if he is elected?

  6. I can see the creation of more taxes to pay for this nightmare wish list.

  7. Reick must actually think he can ride out this whole debacle, just like the blackface VA governor ….. but this DUI didn’t happen years ago, it happened in real time with plenty of video to prove it,

    How many other DUIs does he have already, if any?

    And how many times did he get a pass when he should have got one, or drove drunk w/o nice McHenry Sheriffs squiring him back home?

    If delusional Reick really thinks he’ll get out of this, I wonder if he’s on LSD, too?

    I have zero tolerance for RINOs!

  8. Reick is a Rino all right.

    And I have no faith in him.

    I thought he would do something, but he proves he’s just part of the whole corrupt system.

  9. IMHO Sen. Reick will have an ongoing problem everytime he’s got a court date.

    And in the end he’ll have to plead guilty given the evidence.

    Sad, really.

    Why does everyone trash him as a rino, though.

    What has he actually done rino-ish?

  10. Steve Reick made a big mistake.

    We all have.

    Why do Republican wrongdoers get dumped on by everyone but democrats doing the same thing get no media attn?

  11. Lima, Reeky Reick is a RINO of the first water.

    He’s a township and bob Miller protector.

    And he lunches with Franks from time to time.

  12. The next court date was originally set for a week from Thursday (May 30), but it has been reset for Friday, June 7 at 9AM.

    Let’s see how he pleads at that hearing and see if there will even be a trial.

    In addition to the DUI, he has 2 traffic violations he’ll be appearing in court for pre-trial hearing.

    Looks like Sangamon County circuit court clerk has a very efficient online system so we can easily track the progress of his case.

    Are there any Republicans thinking about running for the 63rd district seat to replace Reick next year?

  13. Implement this and watch your home values drop as productive people move to other states.
