Phil Hare = A Lot More Gov’t Spending

On August 27, 2010, in General, by edwardpan

As Bobby Schilling was in the Quad Cities yesterday calling for an end to government takeovers, massive spending, crushing deficits, high taxes, and bailouts, the Hare campaign continued its crusade against the private market and the private sector of the economy.

Hare spokesman Tim Schlittner was quoted in the Quad-City Times today. The Hare campaign’s only response to the problems of government spending and government takeovers was that, “The government does not control health care. The health care reform bill we passed didn’t even include a public option.” It is clear that Phil Hare wants more control and that he wants a public option that would cost even more to the taxpayers. Phil Hare believes that more government spending will fix our economy because he thinks government can solve our problems better than private individuals and free private enterprise.

Phil Hare has voted with Nancy Pelosi on almost every vote he has ever taken in Congress, a 98.8% rating with Pelosi. Plain and simple, Phil Hare has always been, and always will be, an advocate for big liberal interests, out-of-control spending, reckless deficits, and failed economic policies.

Can someone share this chart from the Joint Economic Committee with Phil Hare if he ever decides to have another town hall meeting? Even Hare should know that without the public option, the heavy hand of government is all over our health care system. The JEC chart below shows just some of the growth of taxes, bureaucracy, and new government programs that Hare voted for.

Americans and the people of the 17th district are facing some serious economic issues and these disagreements on economic policy highlight, yet again, the need for several debates in the 17th district.

Voters are excited by the alternative Bobby offers. People are resonating with Bobby’s proposals for cutting wasteful spending, growing jobs with Kennedy and Reagan style tax cuts, and his pledge to fight for the middle class.

Unlike Hare, Bobby knows we can’t continue down this failed course that Nancy Pelosi has led us — we can’t afford to gamble our future with Phil Hare. As you know, we are at a crossroads and we need your help.

Please do what you can today to help Bobby take back our government so we can remove Hare and get people back to work by cutting spending, lowering taxes, and rolling government back from crowding out the private sector. Contribute to Bobby’s MoneyBomb today to make a difference and send the message that you want real change. Help us remove Hare today.

EAST MOLINE, IL–Bobby Schilling, Republican candidate for Congress in the IL-17 District, held a “Kill the Bill” money-bomb fundraising drive that pulled in $25,215.67. The fundraising drive was announced about two weeks ago and ended on Sunday, March 21, at midnight. Schilling said that the success of this fundraising drive shows that voters are ready for a new direction in Illinois politics.

“I was only expecting to raise around $5,000 for this money-bomb,” said Schilling. “I am humbled and honored that grassroot supporters came together and helped us crush our original goal. It shows that supporters are fired-up and ready to go.”

Mike Moehlenhof, a grassroot supporter of Mr. Schilling, was responsible for organizing and advertising for the money-bomb drive. Mr. Moehlenhof said that financial support started coming in as soon as they began advertising for the drive.

“People were very eager to donate to Bobby’s campaign,” said Moehlenhof. “In fact we reached the original goal of $10,000, six days early. Then, when we announced that we had to adjust the goal, the flood gates opened. I was very happy when we found out the total amount raised was over $25,000. I can’t wait to do another one closer to the election.”

Mr. Moehlenhof said that the fundraising drive attracted a lot of new donors and that supporters were extremely engaged for this event.

Moehlenhof continued, “People really connect with Bobby’s fresh face and uplifting message. They are sick of the tax and spend, regulate more, status-quo politicians in Washington. His campaign has a message that Republicans, Independents and even a lot of Democrats can embrace.”

Schilling, a native of Rock Island. graduated from Alleman High School and attended Black Hawk College. Schilling, a local business owner and father of ten children, is the Republican candidate for the 17th Congressional District in Illinois. Bobby is running on a platform of bring jobs and real representation back to the 17th District. Earlier this year, Schilling conducted a 34-city “Bob’s for Jobs” tour, where he met with voters and employers all across the 17th District.

“Kill the Bill” Money Bomb is TODAY

On March 21, 2010, in Health Care, by edwardpan

Today members of Congress plan to vote on the most important legislation in the history of the United States.

The vote on the current Healthcare Reform bill today will take America in one of two directions; either down the path of Europe, where government intrusion and interference, high debt burdens, and high unemployment rates are regarded as part of the norm or down our own path, a path in which we, citizens of the United States, make our own choices, lead our own lives and create a better future for our children.

Together, we can make the difference right now.

I am asking you to join with us on our march to Washington next November, to make sure that no matter what Congress decides today, that your voice will be represented and that this healthcare deform bill will be repealed.

The last day of the “3/21 Kill the Bill” money-bomb is here. Because of people like you we have almost doubled our goal and had to readjust it three times. I wanted to personally say thank you and remind you to give today a final push with your family and friends. Make sure that everyone you know donates what they can, even if it is just $5 or $10. It all adds up and it all matters.

For example $10 gets us 10 yard signs. A donation of $5 gets us 15 bumperstickers. A donation of $8.80 sends out direct mail pieces to 20 families. Any donation helps and gets us closer to beating another record and even closer to getting to Washington.

In case you haven’t donated yet or have forgotten the money-bomb website it’s

Donate $5, $10, $15 or whatever you can afford to help kill the bill.

With your help, we can kill this government takeover together!
