When do you think we'll get our $1000 energy rebate check?

Another promise of his. Taken from his website:

Enact a Windfall Profits Tax to Provide a $1,000 Emergency Energy Rebate to American Families.

Is this his Stimulus check?

  • Oh I thought he had a get out plan, did that get all messed up too. I checked on his www.change.gov and it's pretty much just a blank old page of nothing cause he doesn't have a clue.

  • A windfall tax — actually an excise tax imposed on the difference between the market price of oil and an adjusted base price — was enacted in 1980 but repealed in 1988. By then, oil prices had dropped, it was generating little or no revenue and there were concerns that it made the United States more dependent on foreign oil. Many Democrats want to bring it back to discourage oil companies from raising prices.
