McCAIN AND HIS $40 MILLION FORTUNE SAY OBAMA IS "INSENSITIVE" TO THE POOR

I would bet that the McCains don't pay their servants less than the minimum wage. Of course there's no way to know that because McCain keeps all his expenses hidden by not releasing Cindy's tax returns-- and that is, after all, where all the money is in the McCain household. Her father's beer distributorship bought them their 8 houses, their airplane, cars and extravagant lifestyle. But even if McCain is fair to his domestic servants-- and I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt-- he has always voted his class in the Senate. McCain's record on standing up for the working families of this country is crystal clear; he hasn't. Not ever. Not even a little. He may be a good tipper in restaurants and whore houses but when it comes to giving working families a break, McCain has been a nightmare. You want to know why American jobs get shipped overseas and why American workers who lose their jobs are left in the lurch? Just examine McCain's voting record, a voting record that has tossed the poor, native Americans, veterans, our country's children, and the unemployed under the bus. McCain was one of only 28 right-wing extremists who voted to kill the minimum wage and has long opposed legislation to increase the minimum wage, even filibustering to prevent working people from getting a hike in the minimum wage. Similarly, McCain has opposed health care for poor children and when Bush vetoed a bill that increased health care for children, McCain loudly rubber stamped his decision. Clearly, John McCain has been no friend to poor people.
And yet, today this hypocritical tool of big corporations has had the gumption to call Barack Obama "insensitive to poor people." And the corporate-owned media just lets it go right by. McCain, came out of one of his 8 mansions and told the press that Obama is "out of touch on economic issues." Like Goebbels said, if you say it often enough and loudly enough-- and if you can get the mass media to play dead-- then it doesn't matter how big or how outrageous a lie you tell. It worked for the Nazis and it's been working for the Republicans.
Obama was interviewed on the GOP cable channel today and said that McCain "not only wants to continue some of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and corporations, he actually wants to extend them, and he hasn't told us really how he's going to pay for them. It is irresponsible. And the irony is he said it was irresponsible."
