McCain Makes “Change” Out of Wall Street Fiasco


“I’ll reform Wall Street and fix Washington,” McCain says. That’s bold talk. And it’s a lie. Perhaps, the Arizona Senator never received the memo. For, Washington has been in Wall Street’s pocket–and the pocket of anyone else with money to spend–for generations. Populist rhetoric isn’t going to get the job done. The only person in Washington who cares enough to change the score is Ralph Nader, and the establishment has effectively silenced his campaign.
