Associated Press

Speaking after touring a Middleburg, Ohio factory that supplies parts to nuclear power plants, the Arizonan reiterates he doesn’t want to see execs profit off of the Bush administration’s plan.

“In any solution, we must see accountability, we must see transparency, and we must make sure taxpayers’ dollars don’t line the pockets of executives.”

Obama camp responds: “John McCain’s so-called plan initially contained no mention of CEO pay…” Statement here.

McCain camp hits back: “It is a lie for Barack Obama’s campaign to say that John McCain’s did not address CEO compensation in his new plan.” Statement here.
