John McCain’s record in the U.S. Senate has repeatedly demonstrated that he is totally out of touch with the average working person in this country. His recent and constantly shifting policy statements have totally reinforced this fact. Just the other day, while he was fundraising in California, a reporter asked him a very easy question that any regular person could have answered instantly. ‘When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost?’ What was McCain’s answer? Well, it was a mixture of ‘I don’t know,’ and ‘I don’t recall.’
It is no surprise that John McCain is so far out of touch with the daily lives of average Americans. He is one of the richest members of Congress after all. He did marry into a very wealthy family and doesn’t really have to deal with any of the struggles that the rest of us face everyday. Being as rich as John McCain isn’t the problem by itself, but it is that combined with loser policy positions that don’t help real people that need it most.
Fresh off a fundraising tour through oil country, John McCain has changed his mind on trying to drill our way out of our energy crisis. It seems that he is totally in touch with the needs of that powerful interest. The best that average people have been able to get from John McCain is the ‘gas tax holiday’ which has been totally debunked by economists as a total gimmick. When it comes to the economy and the everyday challenges faced by average Americans, John McCain is showing himself to be out of touch and deficient of solutions.
