Obama, McCain Assure Voters Amid Bailout

Ad Feedback

With 35 days until the election, both presidential candidates worked to show voters they understand their concerns about the economy.

Both Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain responded almost immediately after President Bush's $700 billion bailout plan was defeated in the House, Monday.

How is the economic crisis affecting the candidates' campaigns? Watch more from CBN News Political Reporter David Brody.

"You know we need reform in Washington and Wall Street," McCain said on the campaign trail in Ohio today. "And we know who suffered because we need it, and that's Main Street. The financial crisis threatens the economic security of all Americans."

Speaking in Detroit, Obama said he "will fight every day of this campaign and every day of my presidency to make sure a crisis like this never, ever happens again."

Both senators have criticized the other on their economic policy plans as president. McCain charged that Obama's plan would "deepen our recession."

Obama responded saying McCain "just doesn't get" the economic "storm" that's hitting Main Street.

Neither of the candidates have said how they would vote when the Senate takes its turn on the Wall Street rescue plan.

Obama will return to the Senate this week for the vote. McCain aides say the senator also plans to show up for the roll call vote.
