            Illinois is hurting. Red states and blue states are hurting — and desperate for a real federal rescue

            The federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic should look beyond handing out trillion-dollar Band-Aids. It should roll out in the spirit of a modern day New Deal, with an eye toward addressing historic inequities
