McCain: Stimulus 'a setback to change' (JOSH KRAUSHAAR, 2/8/09, Politico)
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Sunday he'll vote against President Barack Obama’s stimulus bill, calling the legislation “generational theft” in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“I thought we were going to have change," he said, in a shot at Obama's campaign slogan, "and that change meant we work together. This is a setback. This is a setback to all Americans because you promised Americans we’d work in a more bipartisan fashion, and that certainly is not the case in this bill,” McCain said.
McCain said the bill would saddle Americans with billions in future debt, and contained protectionist provisions that could be damaging to the economy.
