Barack Obama goes on the attack with a new ad tying John McCain to big oil:
The ad is timed to coincide with the announcement of his New Energy for America Plan, which would give middle class families a $1,000 rebate funded by a windfall profits tax on oil companies.
Anncr VO: Every time you fill your tank, the oil companies fill their pockets.
Now Big Oil's filling John McCain's campaign with 2 million dollars in contributions.
Because instead of taxing their windfall profits to help drivers, McCain wants to give them another 4 billion in tax breaks.
After one president in the pocket of big oil... We can't afford another.
Barack Obama... A windfall profits tax on big oil to give families a thousand dollar rebate.
A president who'll stand up for you.
Barack VO: I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message.
