*Oh, and a one-week timeshare (I like Vegas, ok?).
If there's a better way to underscore how out of touch John McCain is with the basic economic circumstances of most people, I don't know what it is.
Incidentally, this response by McCain spokesman Brian Rogers is a flat lie:
“The reality is that Barack Obama’s plans to raise taxes and opposition to producing more energy here at home as gas prices skyrocket show he’s completely out of touch with the concerns of average Americans.”As I've detailed extensively below, Obama's tax plan involves a tax cut for the vast majority of households. And the claim that Obama opposes producing more energy in the U.S. is also false, given Obama's commitment to alternative energy technologies. What he is opposed to is McCain's gimmick-plan to allow drilling offshore.....starting in 10 years. Which McCain was against before he was for.
So many lies, so little time.....
