McCain's '$5 Million Gaffe,' Keeping Phil Gramm in the Fold Show How Out of

                              Touch McCain Is

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 /EMWNews/ -- The Democratic National

Committee today released a new video called "Five Million" that uses

McCain's own words, the impact of his tax plan and reports that McCain is

still considering former Senator Phil Gramm as a potential Treasury

Secretary to show how out of touch he is with the challenges facing

America's working families.

    While McCain's own household would receive a tax cut of more than

$370,000, middle class families will see a cut of just $319 from the McCain

tax plan, with 101 million households receiving nothing. Instead of

offering working families tax relief, McCain and advisors like Phil Gramm

-- who the New York Times reports is still being considered a possible

Treasury Secretary pick by the McCain campaign -- have dismissed those

challenges as "psychological" and complained about America becoming "a

nation of whiners."

    "John McCain's 'leave no millionaire behind' economic agenda may make

sense to Phil Gramm, but the 101 million households that will get nothing

under the McCain tax plan understand how out of touch he is when it comes

to the economic challenges facing America's families," said DNC spokesman

Damien LaVera. "Since John McCain thinks only people making more than $5

million are rich, it is no wonder his tax plan would hand hundreds of

thousands of dollars in new tax giveaways to millionaires or that his

potential treasury secretary thinks our country is 'a nation of whiners'."
