Obama Ad Hits McCain On Spending

A new ad by Barack Obama's campaign takes on John McCain over spending. The ad, which begins running in key states today, starts with McCain's oft-used introduction of running mate Sarah Palin, "I can't wait to introduce her to the big spenders in Washington."

"Big spenders…like John McCain," a narrator continues. "McCain's tax plan means another three trillion in debt. His plan to privatize Social Security – another trillion. Tax credits sent to insurance companies, yet another trillion. So as we borrow from China to fund his spending spree, ask yourself. Can we afford John McCain?" Watch it:
