Katie McGinty Is the Best Choice for Pennsylvania's Working Families

Pat Toomey’s biggest problem is his voting record in the Senate. On issue after issue, he has carried water for Wall Street and voted against working people. But Katie McGinty is committed to protecting jobs, wages and a good retirement for Pennsylvanians.

That's why working people in unions have endorsed McGinty as the U.S. Senate candidate for Pennsylvania.

The choice is clear:

Wants to Replace Social Security and Medicare. Toomey supported efforts to privatize Social Security, and he introduced legislation to turn Medicare into a voucher program.
