Schilling Campaign Responds to Hare Tax Tour

From the Schilling for Congress campaign (17th District)…

EAST MOLINE, IL–Bobby Frederick, Communications Director for the Bobby Schilling for Congress campaign, responded to Phil Hare’s tax tour to Galesburg, Canton, and Rock Island.

On September 29, 2010, the House voted to adjourn by a vote of 210-209.

“Phil Hare and the Democrats control the House, Senate and White House, yet they left Washington in disarray by failing to pass a budget,” Frederick said. “They also have created uncertainty for Illinois families and small businesses by choosing not to address the looming $3.8 trillion tax hike on January 1, 2011. This inability to govern should not be rewarded,” said Frederick.

Phil Hare announced today that he would tour Galesburg, Canton and Rock Island to talk about tax issues.

“Instead of staying in D.C. to do his job, Phil Hare cast the deciding vote to adjourn so he could hit the campaign trail and blame the current economic situation on Bobby Schilling,” Frederick said. “Bobby Schilling has signed a pledge to not raise taxes on anyone and will cosponsor legislation to balance the budget just like he has done with his small business. Phil Hare is a career politician who will not take such a pledge. That is the difference in this race when it comes to the issue of taxes,” Frederick said.
Bobby Schilling, a native of Rock Island, graduated from Alleman High School and attended Black Hawk College.
