Palin: Mortgage Plan Not A Hand-Out, But A Hand Up

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Republican vice presidential candidate
Sarah Palin says John McCain's plan to reduce taxes and help
distressed homeowners with their mortgages will "get this economy
moving again."
At a campaign rally in Scranton, Palin said McCain's mortgage
proposal is "not a hand-out, but a hand up" to keep financially
overwhelmed Americans in their homes.
She took a swipe at Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential
candidate who grew up in Scranton. She says Biden is opposed to
clean coal. Pennsylvania is one of the nation's top coal-producing
states.
She also says Barack Obama talks a lot about the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan but never says he wants the United States to win.
