Another Blank Spot in McCain's Legislative Record

September 25, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

The Hill on McCain and Obama’s legislation related to the financial crisis:

>Republican presidential nominee John McCain has not introduced any banking or housing bills in the 110th Congress, while Democratic rival Barack Obama has proposed five.

I looked at the candidates’ education bills a couple weeks ago and found the same thing:

>As I began looking through the bills each candidate has sponsored this session (Obama’s, McCain’s), it was instantly clear that education policy marks a stark contrast in the candidates legislative records this session – while Barack Obama has proposed 11 bills directly related to education, John McCain has introduced zero.

For more information the bills Obama and McCain have been pushing in Congress, see my series analyzing their legislation this session.
