Male Announcer: We all know John McCain's inspiring personal story.

But, can we trust his political agenda?

McCain's top priority in Washington--nationalized campaign laws that muzzle conservative voices...making taxpayers pay for political campaigns.

Conservative leaders call McCain's political agenda

[SFX] "dangerous and reckless"  [David Keene, President American Conservative Union]

[SFX] "dishonest" [Tony Snow, conservative columnist]

[SFX] "tramples on the Constitution" [Manchester Union Leader]

And the real purpose: [SFX] "to throttle criticism of politicians" Providence Journal Bulletin
