Obama says McCain supports a failed economic plan

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) -- Barack Obama says John McCain is in lockstep with President Bush on the economy.

In a campaign speech in Grand Junction, Colorado, Obama said McCain hasn't "named one thing that he would do differently from this administration" when it comes to the economy.

The Democratic nominee also chided McCain for voting "against the minimum wage 19 times."

Obama blames what he calls the "economic philosophy" McCain subscribes to for causing what he says is "the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression."
