PEORIA, Il. -- A Central Illinois watch group is hoping Congressman Aaron Schock will hear their voices as he works to find a deal in the fiscal cliff.

Friday, members of Action Now gathered outside of Shock's Downtown Peoria office.

The group wants legislators *not to make cuts to medicaid and social security while looking for a compromise.

They say the burden should be balanced and that the rich should pay more in taxes.

Leaders of Action Now say their message is bi-partisan, and that they will take that message to Senator Dick Durbin next.
