Doors Are Closing on the 99% In Illinois

Since arriving in Washington after the 2010 election, Tea Party Republican Bobby Schilling (R-IL) has proved time and again that he’s a puppet for the 1%. Schilling voted to repeal health reform, blocked the Bring Jobs Home Act, supported tax breaks for companies that sent jobs overseas, and supported the Romney/Ryan budget to protect the wealthy—all at the expense of working families in Illinois.

In the Quad Cities, working families have been pressing Schilling to stand with us, not against us. But our calls are falling on deaf ears. Schilling isn’t just failing us in Washington—he’s failing us here at home, too. Schilling is out of touch with what matters most.

Watch this new ad that makes clear his closed door policy toward the 99% and share it with your friends:
