Script of "Bad Bet" (TV)

ANNOUNCER [v/o]: Our economy in trouble. Wall Street and Washington gambling with our money, piling up more government debt

In Salem with Jeff Merkley as Speaker of the State House, the story isn't any better

Under Merkley the budget increased by $4 billion dollars

(Text on screen: Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office, September 2007)

And he keeps spending.

(Text on screen: SB 5556, 2/22/08; SB 5555, 2/22/08; Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office, March 2008)

A billion in additional debt under Merkley.

(Text on screen: Oregon Debt Advisory Commission, 1/14/08)

He just keeps borrowing.

(Text on screen: HB 5100, 2/22/08; Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office, March 2008)

Just like Washington, Merkley borrows the money and mortgages our future.

Jeff Merkley: He's a big risk and a bad bet.
