This two-minute video was released yesterday by the Obama campaign.
Update: From Barack Obama via email:
For eight years, Bush-McCain economic policies have favored reckless deregulation and huge tax loopholes for big corporations. Now, as these corporations crumble, American taxpayers are facing costly bailouts.
More of the same failed ideas are not going to solve our economic problems.
I'm calling for a $1,000 tax break for middle-class families -- not just because they need help dealing with the rising costs of gas, food, and health care, but also because our economy needs to be reinvigorated from the bottom up, not the top down.
I'm proposing a second stimulus package to save over one million jobs and provide immediate relief to struggling families.
And I'll end the "anything goes" culture on Wall Street with real regulation. We can see clearly that our economy is stronger when we protect investments and pensions, and avoid devastating bankruptcies and bailouts.
