“Sen. John McCain claims he can provide leadership, but he panicked in the face of cries that the sky is falling from Wall Street investors who made bad investments, and the taxpayers are going to pay over $700 billion for his lack of leadership,” says Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Bob Barr.
“Sen. McCain claims he will change Washington by eliminating ‘earmarks’, but he just voted for more than $103 billion dollars of bold-faced earmarks,” says Barr.
“Sen. McCain claims he will change the way things are done in Washington, but he railroaded a $700 billion Wall Street bailout through the Senate with no study or debate, no alternative and no special interest left behind,” Barr continues.
“Sen. McCain claims he can act in a bipartisan manner, but his actions on the Wall Street bailout bill shows he acts in a bipolar manner,” says Barr.
Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003.
