CLIP OF JEFF MERKLEY: So the task is at hand. It's time to go change the world. Let's go do it together. Thank you very much.
ANNOUNCER: The world has changed since Jeff Merkley was elected. Our debt has grown to $17 trillion, our government has run record deficits, and the debt held by each taxpaying American is now over one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The senator's solution? It's no solution at all. Jeff Merkley voted against balancing our budget, but voted to give Wall Street taxpayer bailouts. Career politicians like Jeff Merkley have done just one thing for Oregonians: bankrupt us.
