RESPONSIBILITY, NOT BAILOUTS SHOULD BE FOCUS
Presumptive Republican nominee John McCain warned against vigorous government action to alleviate the mortgage crisis Tuesday and Ozarks Congressman Roy Blunt backed the message.
Rep. Blunt called McCain's economic approach "commonsense."
"By rightly focusing on creating new opportunities for Americans instead of rewarding irresponsibility, his plan is the correct approach for our country. Unnecessary government intervention and burdensome taxes are simply not the answer. Senator McCain is right to consider any proposal on its merit -- not merely on stump speech rhetoric," Rep. Blunt said Tuesday after McCain's address. "Congress must exercise caution that we not make it harder for future borrowers to access loans or return to a serf-like system where the government becomes a landlord as many House Democrats have proposed."
