John McCain's Keating Five Problem in 97 Seconds

Two decades after his role in the savings and loan crisis, McCain is still bent on deregulation.

Here's a new video taking a look at John McCain's Keating Five problem in just 97 seconds.

The video combines archival footage of CBS and NBC News (including a report from Andrea Mitchell!) with reporting by CNN's John King aired just last month.

The bottom-line is that two decades after his role in the savings and loan crisis, John McCain is still the same old guy, more focused on deregulation than on delivering the sensible protections we need.

Progressive Accountability has much more on the Keating Five scandal, including its similarities to the current economic crisis.
