Republican presidential candidate John McCain told CNBC that the government's top priority in the financial crisis should be on buying bad mortgages to keep Americans in their homes.
"The administration is not doing what I think they should do, and that's go in and buy out these bad mortgages, give people mortgages they can afford, stabilize home values and start them back up again," McCain said in a live interview with his vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin.
"I'm disappointed that (Treasury Secretary Henry) Paulson has not put first emphasis on buying these home mortgages and keeping people in their homes," McCain added.
And that leads to our Fast Money Reader Poll. Do you think Paulson should use some of the money allotted to the Treasury to buy bad mortgages?
