In a recent letter to the editor of The Democrat-Dispatch a Bobby Schilling supporter “since 2009” explains her reasons why she still backs Schilling.
First she mentions that Schilling is “a family man who is pro-life” but so what? Even though the writer says Schilling sponsored a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, when it came time to vote, Schilling was too scared buck his party’s leadership and instead voted for continuing resolution HR179 which not only voted funding for the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood, he also voted to fund Obamacare, even though he had campaigned on defunding it.
The rest of the letter is just hokey stuff—Schilling didn’t take DC healthcare, he held gobs of townhalls, Bustos flew on Air Force 1 to Galesburg with The Won instead of staying behind and voting on a bill whose outcome was decided, etc. ZZZzzzz
Small beer, in other words, except for the fact that Schilling campaigned on defunding Obamacare and Planned Parenthood but instead marched lockstep with his DC pals for funding.
In this regard, Schilling is just like the Democrats—he hopes what happens in DC stays in DC.
