Sen. John McCain says Americans are in the toughest times he can remember and that President Barack Obama hasn't brought the change in Washington that he promised.
McCain spoke at a town hall Friday to a couple hundred people in a Mesa church, reiterating many of the same points he's made in recent similar events.
McCain criticized Democrats' plan to create a government-run insurance option to compete with private companies and expensive pet projects by individual lawmakers.
McCain says everyone in the audience must know someone who has lost their home or job, adding that "Americans are angry and have every reason to be."
One audience member shouted back, "You bet we are!"
