MILWAUKEE -- Fiscal cliff fears are taking over in Wisconsin.

Some concerned citizens will be holding candlelight vigils in front of Sen. Ron Johnson and Sen. Herb Kohl's downtown Milwaukee offices on Monday.

The group is asking each senator to sign a letter to President Barack Obama, asking him to reject any proposal that makes changes to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

The fiscal cliff is a series of tax increases that go into effect at the end of the year. Economists worry it could push the U.S. back into a recession.
