Senator John McCain, Still a fraud.
McCain campaigned on rural broadband as a way to stimulate the entire American economy. In fact it was a centerpiece of one of his economic plans: “Broadband access needs to be a top priority.”
But now that he’s senator, he’s against it.
MCCAIN: There’s got to be some kind of litmus as to whether it’ll really stimulate the economy and whether it will in the short-term. Some of the stimulus in this package is excellent; some of it, frankly, has nothing to do — some of the projects and others that you just mentioned, $6 billion for broadband and internet access. That will take years.
In fact, he brought it up on FOX news last week as being the epitome of wasteful and unnecessary spending, but during the election, he campaigned for it. And he once introduced legislation supporting it.
It strikes me as a classic bit of counter-cyclical spending.
As for McCain? We learned what he is in the last campaign: an appalling fraud.
