October 14, 2008

Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) released new details of his economic agenda on Monday. Obama’s plans include a ninety-day moratorium on home foreclosures and additional funding in government loan guarantees for automakers. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) also addressed economic policy in a speech on Monday. He promised to “open new markets to goods made in America and make sure our trade is free and fair.”

NORTH KOREA: In a statement on Saturday, Obama said President Bush’s decision to remove North Korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism was “an appropriate response, as long as there is a clear understanding that if North Korea fails to follow through there will be immediate consequences.”

DRAFT: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette looks at the candidates’ differing views on the military draft. Obama believes women should have to register for the Selective Service while McCain does not.
