McCain lashes out at Frank and Dodd
as "willing co-conspirators" in bringing about the banking crisis.
Here's the exchange between McCain and an audience member today in Wisconsin (courtesy of this diarist at Daily Kos
, and confirmed against the original video
by me) ...
Audience member: Will you assure us that as president you will take immediate action to investigate, prosecute and name the names of the people actually responsible?
McCain: I will. And it is already a matter of record that members, Democrat members of Congress fought against reform and it is a matter of record and hearings that they said everything was fine. Senator Obama a year ago said that these kinds of subprime loans are, quote, fine with him. And the fact is that the same people that are now claiming credit for this rescue are the same ones that were willing co-conspirators in causing this problem that it is. And you know their names. And you will know more of their names. Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd are two of them.
