Also says McCain’s gas tax proposal would take away money from the Highway Trust Fund. “I think that’s the last thing we can afford to do.”
McCain camp responds: “It is beyond the pale that Barack Obama would attack John McCain for actually trying to fix the problem and change the way Washington works.” Full statement here.
