MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) -- John McCain says the financial bailout making its way through Congress must not include big payouts for irresponsible corporate executives.
At a political rally in Ohio today, the Republican presidential nominee said any solution must include accountability and transparency.
And he said it "must make sure taxpayers' dollars don't line the pockets of executives."
McCain also restated his support for nuclear power in a brief speech after touring Nova Machine Products, which supplies parts to nuclear power plants around the country. He called again for the construction of 45 new nuclear power plants by 2030, both to ease U.S. dependence on foreign oil and to create jobs in the energy sector.
