Ad Feedback

Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain are continuing to focus on the economy, amid House's passage of a finalized economic rescue package.

Obama campaigned in Pennsylvania, Friday, while the McCain camp was in Colorado.

Both men are talking about the thousands of jobs lost last month. The number of unemployment claims has risen nearly 160,000, marking the highest number of lost jobs in more than five years.

Obama charged that the policies McCain supports are "killing jobs in America every single day."

"I will rebuild the middle class and create millions of new jobs by investing in infrastructure and renewable energy," the senator said.

Meanwhile, McCain pledged to "open markets around the globe for our products, cut taxes and expand domestic production of energy.

He added that he "will create jobs and get the economy on the right track."
