Denver (AP) U.S. Senate candidates Mark Udall and Bob Schaffer say taxpayers should have gotten a better deal from Congress during the financial rescue package of Wall Street.

The candidates made the comments tonight during one of their last debates before voters choose who to send to Washington to fill the seat of retiring Republican Wayne Allard.

Congressman Mark Udall says one of the reasons he voted against the $700 billion dollars bailout plan last week was because the proposal lacked accountability for the private industry. The Democrat says the bad economy is hurting the working class who
“feel like the aren't getting ahead.”

Schaffer, a Republican, warned that taxpayers will not see a return from the bailout and that the price tag could reach $1.3 trillion dollars. Schaffer also says the financial crisis has hurt the reputation of the U.S. around the world.
