If the Democrats are so good, I remember when the Quad Cities was the Ag Capital of the World. They are turning us into Pittsburg PA (?steel) Detroit MI (?auto)
Facts are Facts. The writings on the wall. Hare did such a great job to save Norcross, Quad City Die Cast and That clothing factory! Didn't he!!! These idiots better wake up, Or maybe another Casino will save us all.

I can't agree more with reality. Here's the thing. Hare hasn't listen to us. While yes the district is very democratic, that doesn't mean that independents and soft democrats are satisfied with the job Hare is doing. I've met Bobby and I like what he has to say. He really knows the people and knows how to spur growth!

My vote will be for Schilling this fall, hands down.

I have yet to figure out what Phil Hare has done that is so awful. I am very satisfied with what he has done for the 17th district. My family and I are voting for Hare. Schilling cannot even vote for himself. He does not live in the district.

Schilling does not believe people have the right to affordable health care. I would be interested to learn what he does for his own employees. I wonder what happens if someone is hurt at work? I also would like to hear what he plans on changing, his ideas, instead of constantly cutting down Congressman Hare.

No name: define "affordable". Phil-billy Hare has supported no such thing as 'affordable health care'. The idiot's driven up the cost. What a loathsome little man. HE is a caricature, in the living flesh, of the despised union thug.
He sneers and condescends, always. And he ought to take a page from M Obama's book and MOVE his obese behind.

Bobby is a ? rep. dem. or indpendent Was a union offical. Must be a dem. Now a busness owner must be a rep, He talks but gives no absolute answers must be an ind. I think i will vote for someone who a knows what party they represent and lives in the district.

The bottom line is Phil Hare just doesn't care. He doesn't care about his constituents or the Constitution. Bobby Schilling is what we need to cut this Hare from our district. There is a Moneybomb for Bobby Schilling tonight! donate at
