McCain's plan, which he released Monday and has dubbed "Jobs for America," calls for lower taxes, more free trade agreements and a balanced federal budget by 2013. McCain has also been rehashing his proposals for more domestic oil drilling and a gas tax holiday, measures he said would help stem the country's dependence on foreign energy sources and soften the blow of high gas prices for Americans.

McCain, in a speech in Denver, attacked Obama as someone who would increase Americans' tax burden and who is unwilling to take necessary steps to address U.S. energy problems.
