DENVER, CO – TOMORROW, Thursday, September 25, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr. will join Obama’s Campaign for Change and senior voters for a Denver area forum on the importance of protecting Social Security. In the midst of the current financial crisis, Social Security has never been more important to protecting Americans in retirement and to honoring the working efforts of all Americans. While McCain has a plan to privatize social security, Senator Obama knows that with a broken economy, unstable markets and failing banks, we just can’t afford more of the same. With a history of standing up against privatization of social security, Senator Obama has repeatedly voted against Republican amendments aimed at privatizing Social Security and cutting benefits. He has also worked to reform corporate bankruptcy laws to protect American workers and retirees.
