Huffington Post has a great article up on its website about how the GOP House members that it contacted won't comment on John McCain's plan to buy up bad mortgages. Here is a quote from the article:
On Thursday afternoon, the Huffington Post reached out to roughly two dozen press offices for Republican members of the Senate Banking and House Financial Services committees, not one of which was ready to talk about the GOP presidential candidate's proposal in even the broadest terms.
Further, Marc Ambinder of the Atlanic Monthly points out that some commentators think that the plan is specifically prohibited by the recently passed bailout bill.
