Bobby Schilling and Republicans passed a bill that pays corporations to outsource our jobs, then ask, where are the jobs? Tea Party Republicans, from day one, their No. 1 priority was to make Barack Obama a one-term president.

Even if we were for it, Obama wants it, we will vote against it. Shows how un-American Republicans can be about jobs or people losing their homes.
People say Democrats had control but Mitch McConnell and his saboteurs in the Senate used a record 135 filibusters to stop Democrats at every turn. Even if you have a majority, it only takes one minority to stop a bill from coming to the floor for a vote. Republicans said it now takes 60 votes not 51 to pass a bill.

If Bobby Schilling and Republicans were for creating jobs, why would they send bills to the Senate with amendments attached like abortion and want to pay for these bills on the backs of poor and Middle Class and not ask 1 cent from the rich?

Mitt Romney has lied and changed his position on issues so many times, how can he be trusted on anything? Like saying the Jeep factory was going to China.

Their voucher Medicare program will have you reading the fine print of insurance companies and there is nothing to stop them from charging you a $2,000-$5,000 deductible for low coverage.

Vote for Cheri Bustos and President Obama who will stand for everyone, not just the 1 percent.
