Usury Condemned

On Amateur Economists, I just read the following words:

McCain chastises “speculators” and says he wishes interest rates could be 0%.1

Is this claim true? Has McCain really said something like this? I was aware that McCain likes to emphasize traditional Christian values, but this is a throwback to the most ancient sort of Christian sentiment — as ancient as, for example, the First Council of Carthage.
