The AFL-CIO’s "Working America" is running a robocall attacking Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in battleground states Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, Talking Points Memo reports.

"Hi, this is Sue with an important message from Working America about the current economic crisis," says the call. "You should have just received a piece of mail from us, explaining how Republican Sen. John McCain’s economic policies have been a disaster for the middle class.  John McCain has gotten us into this economic crisis.  He supported sending our jobs overseas, and he supported getting rid of the rules for the fat cats on Wall Street.  In the meantime, he has done nothing to help struggling families on Main Street.  Now he wants to continue the same failed policies.  Working families can’t afford four more years of this.  Please join me in voting against John McCain on Nov. 4.  Thank you for your time."

John McCain has gotten us into this economic crisis? That’s so spurious I don’t even know where to start.
