The single most disreputable economic proposal of campaign 2008 to date (or, Obama really f***ked up this time).
You might want to read about this plan while it still exists because it's only a matter of time before Barack Obama disavows all knowledge of it. In his current plan, Barack Obama endorses political confiscations on behalf of "the people" (embedded hyperlink removed):
Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Friday announced an “Emergency Economic Plan” that would give families a stimulus check of $1,000 each, funded in part by what his presidential campaign calls “windfall profits from Big Oil.”Barack Obama seems to think that high gas prices more than justifiy an economic plan that would make perfect sense for Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia. I'd call Obama a Marxist if I didn't suspect that this comparison would be unfair to Karl Marx.
