John McCain: Economic Disaster

Reported by Ellen - September 30, 2008 -

Our friends at Brave New Films have done it again. They've distilled the essence of an issue, this time John McCain's cluelessness about the economy, into a short video everyone can watch on the internet.

As Robert Greenwald and the Brave New Films team write:

John McCain does not have the ability to fix this economic crisis. After declaring the fundamentals of the economy strong, he created a political circus in Washington last week by mucking up bailout negotiations; a deplorable stunt, considering he and his political cronies helped cause the current meltdown.

It was McCain and his economic adviser Phil Gramm who pushed for the deregulation that helped lead to the banking crisis, and it was McCain's crony Rick Davis who had deep lobbyist ties to Freddie Mac. Don't let others be fooled by McCain's economic grandstanding because the reality is his policies and principles will only exacerbate our financial hardships. That's why you must spread this video.
