"He'd rather ignore the credit crisis and the mortgage crisis – or blame middle-class families instead of offering solutions on their behalf," Clinton said during campaigning in Raleigh, N.C.

Speaking from New York, Obama said earlier in the day that the United States must address "the immediate crisis in the housing market" in order to recharge the economy.
"McCain recently announced his own plan, and it amounts to little more than watching this crisis happen. While this is consistent with McCain's determination to run for George W. Bush's third term, it won't help families who are suffering, and it won't help lift our economy out of recession," Obama said.
McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, outlined his plan to address the housing situation earlier this week.
