McCain campaign admits they have no idea how much his “new” economic plan will cost

John McCain is supposed to announce his latest economic plan today. Remember, McCain’s campaign said last week that if we keep talking about the economic crisis, McCain will lose. Over the past couple of days, McCain and his campaign gave conflicting answers as to whether he even had a plan for the economy — first he did, then he didn’t, now he does again. That may be why McCain’s spokesperson, Nancy Pfotenhauer, has no idea how much the plan, which will be announced shortly, even costs.

On MSNBC, Pfotenhauer was just asked how much McCain’s plan would cost and how is McCain going to pay for it — that was the reporter’s first question — and Pfotenhauer couldn’t answer. McCain is proposing a massive new plan, all the while making out of control, wasteful government spending his signature issue, and he doesn’t even know how much it’s going to cost. Pfotenhauer did say, however, that the plan will cost “some amount of money.” Some amount of money? That’s like answering which newspapers and magazine you read by saying “most of ’em, all of ’em!” That’s helpful, huh? It’s actually very disturbing and makes it even more obvious that McCain has no plan — he’s just making it up as he goes along:
