Will reject defined benefit congressional pension plan

Will take his own health care plan to Washington

Schilling: "I'm in this to serve people, not myself."

EAST MOLINE, IL -- Bobby Schilling (R-Colona), Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in the Illinois 17th District, has once again promised to reject the defined benefit congressional pension plan and take his own health care plan to Washington if elected to the 114th Congress on November 4.

"When I make a promise, I keep it," Schilling said. "While I served in Congress, I rejected the defined benefit congressional pension plan and turned down the health care package. I'm in this to serve people, not myself, and I don't think the office should be used for personal financial gain.

"I invite my opponent to join me in giving up the defined benefit congressional pension to show that she's serious about balancing the budget and getting this great nation back on track. It's the right thing to do."

Bobby Schilling (R-Colona) was born and raised in Rock Island, Illinois. He has been married to his wife, Christie for 28 years and together they have 10 children. Schilling represented the Illinois 17th District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2011-2012, serving on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Agriculture Committee, and the House Small Business Committee. Schilling is seeking another term and is running against incumbent Congresswoman Cheri Bustos.
