Champion “jobs not cuts” in fiscal cliff negotiations
(Moline, Ill.) Area residents will rally and demand Rep. Bobby Schilling fight for jobs and middle class tax cuts and against cuts to Medicare and other vital services in the so-called “fiscal cliff” negotiations over spending and taxes. The rally and protest is one of more than 100 action taking place Monday in cities nationwide.
“I want Rep. Bobby Schilling to work on creating good jobs and making the wealthiest 2% to pay their fair share of taxes,” says Janet Clark of Rock Island. Medicare and Medicaid are not ‘entitlements,’ they are something the middle class has paid for our entire lives.”
After the protest rally, residents plan to visit Senator Dick Durbin’s office and present him with petitions signed by his constituency. The petitions ask for Sen. Durbin’s continued support of the middle class tax cuts.
