Senator Merkley was joined by the President of the National Committee to Protect Social Security and Medicare, Max Richtman who announced the group is endorsing Merkley in the Senate race against Monica Wehby.

 

During the discussion, the senator mentioned his Republican Senate opponent, Monica Wehby and cuts she would like to make.

 

"Now there are some folks who want to go further.  And one of them is my opponent Monica Wehby.  She supports the Tea Party budget called "Cut, Cap and Balance,"  which would make a 25 percent cut on major programs like social security and medicare."

 

In a new press release, Monica Wehby's campaign criticized Merkley for expanding government and our debt.
