Barack Obama accused presidential rival John McCain of supporting Bush administration policies that produced the current economic crisis Friday night in their first debate of the campaign for the White House. Both men readily agreed Congress must act soon to prevent millions of Americans from losing their jobs and homes.
Asked directly whether he intends to vote for a rescue plan taking shape in Congress, McCain said, “I hope so.”
“We haven’t seen the language yet,” Obama said. “I do think there is constructive work being done.”
