"They fought for us, paid into Social Security and Medicare, every paycheck — they earned it," the ad's narrator says as World War II-era footage plays. "But Richard Mourdock thinks Social Security and Medicare are unconstitutional. Mourdock wants to cut Social Security benefits and raise the retirement age.

Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) of voting to privatize Social Security, while Majority PAC attacks Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.) on Medicare and Social Security and blasts Ohio state Treasurer Josh Mandel (R) for hiring his "college buddies and political cronies" and opposing the auto bailout.
