(Moline, Ill.) Area residents rallied and demand Rep. Bobby Schilling fight for jobs and middle class tax cuts and against any cuts to Medicare and other vital services in the so-called “fiscal cliff” negotiations over spending and taxes. The rally and protest was one of more than 100 action taking place Monday in cities nationwide.

“Rep. Bobby Schilling needs to focus on job creation, stop calling vital services “entitlements,” and extend the middle class tax cuts,” said Dan DeShane “Medicare and Medicaid are not ‘entitlements,’ they are something the middle class has worked and paid into for our entire lives.”

Residents rallied first and then paid a visit to Senator Dick Durbin’s Rock Island office. There they presented him with petitions signed by his constituency. The petitions ask for Sen. Durbin’s continued support of the middle class tax cuts.
