Donnelly: I'll Protect Social Security, Mourdock Won't

Statement

Location: Indianapolis, IN

U.S. Senate candidate Joe Donnelly marked the 76th anniversary of Social Security being signed into law by painting a stark contrast between his record and that of his opponent, TEA Party-backed State Treasurer Richard Mourdock.

"For 76 years, Social Security has been a promise to all Americans that they would have a chance to retire with dignity," said Donnelly. "Indiana is home to more than 1.2 million beneficiaries, who are hard-working men and women who played by the rules and paid their fair share. We have an obligation to them to keep our promise and protect Social Security. Richard Mourdock's way would gamble with Social Security in Wall Street's casino, and he's even questioned if Social Security is constitutional.

"Mr. Mourdock's "my way or the highway' approach would hurt seniors. We can and should take steps to strengthen Social Security while keeping our commitment to Hoosier seniors. What we can't do is adopt the Mourdock Plan that would break promises to our seniors."
