(CNN) – Following weeks of questions over Mitt Romney's personal wealth, the presumptive GOP nominee said Thursday that criticism of the nation's wealthy, including his family, would lead to economic demise.

"I don't mind if he attacks me personally, but when he says a veteran is not a true hero if they speak about their service, he is now discouraging 23 million veterans across this great nation from speaking about their service at a time when young vets coming home need to be talking about the leadership skills they developed in the military," Duckworth said of Rep. Joe Walsh.
