1. Please tell us about yourself, your background and why you believe you are qualified to hold this office.

I am the greatest leader for Prosperity and Peace for All! with daily positive stock returns from publicly traded corporations and banks. We will purchase more goods and services and this will create more Jobs! Common Sense Economics! Also, revenue for all levels of government, agencies, and school, library, and park districts, too. All this- more Jobs! Income, and government revenue without raising taxes with daily positive stock returns! Wow! We will have victory on Tuesday November 4th, 2014 and forever! Tell everyone you know to elect Susanne Atanus. We need Prosperity and Peace for All! The government needs revenue other than always draining the taxpayers with more taxes, higher taxes, and new taxes. They don't seem to get it, and don't get it right. I will be right on all issues, and that is why I have been chosen for this office for all parties and People. I am the greatest leader!

Many are already in debt in the U. S. with car loans, business loans, home mortgages, student loans, credit card debt, etc. totaling $11.3 trillion, besides our nations' $17 trillion debt. It was common sense that we should have been receiving daily positive stock returns for the last 100 years. I have been telling federal and state Congressmen and women to do this, and they keep on going more in debt!! We definitely do not need the same people who have no plan to turn things around with more Jobs! Income, government revenue all this without raising taxes!

There are many problems and the elected officials are not making things better, but I will. It is important and common sense not to repeat the same mistakes. My opponent is doing nothing to improve the economy with no economic stimulus for more Jobs and Income for us and government revenue to reduce our nations' debt, states' debt, and our debt, and prosperity for us in the
U. S. Congress 9th District, and she should not be reelected. That is why I am running for this office, and why I am qualified for this office with solutions for a great future and retirement for All! Daily positive stock returns will significantly reduce terrorism, gangs, violence, killing, hunger, and poverty. We need this now or terrorism, gang violence, killings, and despair, hunger and poverty will get worse.

I was a Contracting Officer at the U. S. General Services Administration/Federal Supply Service with the highest efficiency for 18 3/4 years in the Great Lakes Region headquartered in Chicago, IL. I awarded service contracts and administered federal supply contracts. In addition, I supervised fundraising for the General Services Administration Hispanic Advisory Council Scholarship Program, and 78 scholarships for $500.00 were awarded to graduating high school seniors going on to higher education at vocational school or college. I was on their Board of Directors for eight years, and was a founding member to make a difference with education in their lives. My spirit to help people and with other Federal Loaned Executives made it possible for the United Way to exceed its goal by over $435,000 in 1997. I headed Communications and arranged and confirmed speakers for federal Agencies' Kick-off programs and tours of Agencies assisted by United Way funds.

I have a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago where I studed Economics, Public Policy formation, implementation and evaluation, public administration, unions and government operations, urban studies, and budgets. I graduated with a B.A. from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. I majored in Political Science. In addition, I have a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with distinction from De Vry University, Keller Graduate School of Business. I majored in Accounting with coursework in Government Accounting and Finance. I have a Paralegal Certificate from Colorado State University, Pueblo, CO (online). In addition, I have studied Computer Networking, Managing and Maintaining Servers, Cisco, and Creating Web Pages at Oakton Community College.

I listen to the news a lot, and I am knowledgeable of current events. I am eager to be
U. S. Congresswomen to solve problems, stimulate the economy, create more Jobs, income and government revenue with daily positive stock returns from many publicly traded corporations and banks for Prosperity and Peace for All!

When I am not doing or talking politics, I like talking and visiting with my friends and relatives, and making new friends. I like walking, aerobics, reading, cooking, and baking. I am an Evangelist, and I share the good news of love, abundance, and prosperity for all. We are a nation under God, and we are thankful of all our blessings.

I have a mother, father, an older brother and younger sister. We are close in age. I have many cousins. I am a member of St. John Assyrian Church in Uptown. We serve the Community Thanksgiving Dinner each year. I was baptized in that Church when it was on Halsted St. I read the treasure book the Holy Bible and I am obedient to his word. The Holy Bible says if my people will pray and humble themselves, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear their voice, and heal their land. (their diseases, sicknesses, ailments, and afflictions, and give them a moderate climate).

We are thankful for America the land of opportunity. We are thankful for abundance and abundant crops in this land of plenty. We are thankful that corporations are thriving, and the economy is the strongest it has ever been. There is a job for anyone who wants to work. God Bless America!

2. What are your thoughts on President Obama's plan for military action in Iraq and Syria?

It's amazing that with all the missiles that we have sent there, there still are many terrorists there. We have to send more missiles. The terrorists have no money, no jobs, no home, or family. If they have daily positive returns from many publicly traded corporations and banks, they will not be in terrorist groups. Daily positive stock returns can also reduce gangs, violence, killings, hunger and poverty. 1.2 million people have been displaced by ISIS and/or other terrorist groups. The minorities have been displaced from there over the last 2,000 years including all four of my grandparents from Persia in Iran. They came to America. Many are under bridges, in the streets, and other places. A very cold winter is coming soon and the people need to go back to their homes in many villages. They need protection to go back, and protection to keep them safe there. The Iraqi police needs to do more and troops are needed to assist the Iraqi police to keep the people safe in their villages. Safe havens need to be declared for the villages there, and elsewhere, and it needs to be enforced. I am in favor of the McKeon Amendment allowing President Obama's administration to train and equip Syrian opposition forces until December 11, 2014. This obviously will need to be extended.
One third of Syria has terrorist groups. Fifteen cities in Iraq have terrorist groups. I am running for U. S. Congress because I know how to get to the root of terrorism and gang violence, and that is with daily positive stock returns from publicly traded corporations and banks. We need this Now! When individuals and families are doing well, they will not have to think about joining terrorist groups or gangs. We need daily positive stock returns to alleviate hunger and poverty, too.

3. Several major retailers recently disclosed they experienced data breaches. What can Congress do to help prevent this?

We need new credit cards with a chip that is used in Britain. They do not have credit card breaches. What is Congress waiting for? We need to do this Now!

4. Can the budget deficit be controlled only by spending cuts or does the federal government need to raise more revenue? If you favor more revenue, should there be a general tax hike?

Spending cuts are in order, i.e., reduce the military in Europe and in the United States. Corporations and banks need to pay all their taxes, and no tax loopholes. This will significantly generate much needed revenue. We need to stop fraudulent insurance claims, and stop wrong medical coding errors. This will also save billions of dollars.

We also need to reduce abortions and save babies and save health insurance costs. This will also reduce medical insurance costs. People need to be mature and responsible and take proactive steps. There have been 56 million abortions; way too many, and it has gotten out of hand. Abortion is not an eraser for a mistake, and it is the largest amount of operations, and one of the costliest. It definitely is a large factor of our total healthcare costs, and it needs to be reduced considerably.

We need to eliminate township government nationwide, and this will save billions of dollars annually. At the local and state level, we need to eliminate the number of Commissioners of many agencies. We also need to reduce school district's large pensions over $85,000.00 per year per retiree to no more than $85,000. 00 per year. Then, more federal government money for school districts can go towards teaching and students learning the fundamentals
and Core Standards at each grade level to be competitive for acceptance and excelling in higher education including colleges and universities, and competing globally for the best jobs and employment.

Of course, we need to receive daily positive returns from many publicly traded corporations and banks. Besides working for health insurance, if people receive daily positive stock returns, they will be able to afford health insurance and pay their other expenses. This wil reduce medical costs, the number of people on Medicaid, on Social Security Supplement income, WIC, TANF, etc. It will also reduce the number of people receiving food cards, and money on that card to purchase food prepared in stores, and other items. We all will have a great future and retirement with daily stock returns.

Daily stock returns will also be great revenue for all levels of government, agencies, school, library, and park districts. It will be a revenue base so that taxpayers are not drained with more, new and higher taxes.

Corporations and banks need to pay all their taxes. I don't know why there are tax loopholes. How are we supposed to balance a budget without them paying taxes? This will help protect Social Security and Medicare.

Federal revenues are at the lowest in 60 years, and we can blame the U. S. Congress for that. We need a change, and I am that change for the better. I am in favor of H. R. 694, the Corporate Tax Fairness Act, which would end deferral of foreign source income, close loopholes that inflate the impact of foreign tax credits, & eliminate loopholes for big oil companies that disguise royalty payments to foreign governments as taxes. It would raise more than $600 billion in revenue over the next decade. Who would not be in favor of this
when our U. S. deficit is over $17 trillion dollars, and now we are fighting ISIS and other terrorist groups. This is Common Sense Economics!

Of course, we need to reduce significantly the number of people obtaining health insurance for free. With Obamacare, if a person earns less than $15,000.00 a year, they are automatically on Medicaid. Many can afford not to be on Medicaid, but, it is the law they have to be on it. That is one of the reasons why Medicaid needs to be repealed. Medicaid costs $1,200.00 more for the paperwork, too. Many also can obtain a food card even if they do not need it, and cash on the card. Many can work, and they need to get out of the house and work.

The U. S. government is the largest buyer and spends more than any other government, country, or business. Even with a government discount, the government spends too much on procurement, and the prices it pays for items that you and I buy are about the same price. So, where is the government discount? The U. S. government also has the most number of employees. Of course, we need to cut the number of civilian employees by at least one third. Many are now contract workers.

We need a strong economic stimulus with daily positive stock returns. We will purchase more goods and services and this will create more jobs! We need this Now! We are near historic levels of unemployment, and reduced economic growth for the 99 % of the population. This can easily be turned around quickly with daily positive stock returns from publicly traded corporations and banks. We will purchase more goods and services, and this will create more Jobs!-the Greatest Economic Stimulus and Common Sense Economics!
I have been telling federal, state and local elected officials to do this for over four years, and to no avail. I hope that they are not waiting for me to do it, but, I will do it because it is necessary. That is why I am running for U. S. Congress to do what is right immediately for Prosperity and Peace for All and to stimulate the Economy for more jobs.

5. What are your thoughts on immigration reform?

Immigrants traveling freely and support themselves and their families in the new country. No requirements or application fee to become a U. S. citizen. If the Senate Immigration bill was enacted into law, our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) would grow by more than
1 trillion in today's dollars by 2033.

Nearly 65,000 youth graduate high school in the U. S. each year, but unable to work, join the military or go to college because of their immigration status. The Dream Act would give eligible young people the opportunity to legalize their immigration status and work toward citizenship. In the meantime, I am in favor of the Obama Administration's action to halt the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible young people. Many already here want to go to college, are long-time residents in this country since childhood, and elderly individuals.

We need to deter felons and repeat offenders from becoming U.S. Citizens as well as those who are a risk to our national security. Some police and Homeland Security is o.k. at the borders.
