I was reading the Drudge Report and came across the following information regarding Senator McCain's and other politician's concern about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back in 2006. It isn't mentioned here but he also stated his concern about this in his book 2 years ago.
Why didn't he make his position on this clear during the debates?
Also..I was going to do a post on patient rights and stumbled on a bi-partisan McCain-Edwards-Kennedy Patient Bill of Rights that got voted down in 2001. McCain is telling the truth when he says he reaches across the aisle in bi-partisan efforts. He also has tried to effect change for the better in our medical system. Agree with him or not...Senator John McCain does have a long record of working for this country. He tells us to look at his record.
What exactly is it that Senator Obama has accomplished and has experience with that qualifies him over Senator McCain to be president of the United States?
I hope I am not offending anyone. It is a sincere question? I really wish someone would answer that question.
"McCain Letter Demanded 2006 Action on Fannie and Freddie
by Human Events
Sen. John McCain's 2006 demand for regulatory action on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could have prevented current financial crisis, as HUMAN EVENTS learned from the letter shown in full text below.
McCain's letter -- signed by nineteen other senators -- said that it was "...vitally important that Congress take the necessary steps to ensure that [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac]...operate in a safe and sound manner.[and]..More importantly, Congress must ensure that the American taxpayer is protected in the event that either...should fail."
Sen. Obama did not sign the letter, nor did any other Democrat.
The full text of the letter appears below."
