Tell Boehner and Schilling to Represent Working Families and Not the Richest 1%

Note: Cry Baby Boehner Sheds ‘NO Tears' for Sensata Workers.

 

[Colona, Ill] – Constituents, who for months have been clamoring for serious attention from Congressman Bobby Schilling to what matters most to them now – crucial economic issues impacting ordinary working families, seniors and others not in the richest 1%, will pay a visit to Schilling during an exclusive lunch fundraiser in Colona this Thursday where special guest and luncheon keynote is Speaker of the House John Boehner.

“Speaker of the House John Boehner is coming to the heartland but for all the wrong reasons,” says Deborah Johnson of Congressional District IL 17.  “He’s coming to raise money for Rep. Bobby Schilling when he should go and visit Sensata workers who are about to have their good jobs shipped overseas on Bobby Schilling’s watch.  Sensata workers have the right to cry, Boehner doesn’t because he supports Schilling whose lack of leadership has allowed this to happen. Where is the compassion for the people who are about to lose everything while Boehner and Schilling dine at a 100 dollar a plate lunch. Shame on all of them!”

Voters have called on Schilling and all of our elected officials to support an economy that works for everyone. Schilling has made it clear that he will support the extension of the Bush tax cuts, as well as the same "trickle down" economic policies supported by Romney which have failed in the past.  Working families cannot support a candidate who will continue to widen the gap between the richest 1% and the middle class.  We need a congressional representative in our district that will stand with the 99%.  We need to elect a representative to Congress who stands firmly with the 99%.

WHO:

“99% Voters” from IL 17 Congressional District Say “No” to Mr. 1% Candidate Bobby Schilling and Tell Boehner to Visit U.S. Workers who will soon see their jobs shipped overseas.

WHAT: The 99% will rally in support of crucial middle class economic issues such as ending tax handouts to the wealthy, increasing the minimum wage, creating jobs and protecting Medicare as we know it

WHEN: 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 18, 2012

PLACE: Tennant Truck Lines, 20812 E. 550th St., Colona, IL

VISUALS: 99% voters rallying

NOTE: This effort by 99% Voters in the community and members of Action Now Illinois is NOT authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
