Often cited as having a better grip on economic issues, Barrack Obama surprisingly proposed a $50 million subsidy for big oil on Monday. Where have you spent your tax rebate check? My guess is that you’ve spent it (will spend it) at the gas pump. Guess who is making the money on higher gas prices? It isn’t your local (independently owned and operated) gas station. Obama tears into McCain for offering up a gas tax holiday (yes, a stupid idea), but his proposal to expand the tax refunds is no different: a subsidy for big oil.

How about we get politicians offering up real economic solutions. Solutions that are going to create more jobs rather than get us to spend more money on gas and useless crap from Walmart. How about some financial incentives for anyone who wants to solar panel their house! How about some tax credits for small businesses and entrepreneurs who are the heart of the American economy! What about spending that $50 million on helping people start or grow their businesses! Give me some real fiscal stimulus, Obama, not some watered-down version of McCain’s gas tax holiday.
