    Democrats’ latest idea: gas stamps
    By Alexander Bolton
    Posted: 09/11/08 07:41 PM [ET]

    As the U.S. economy teeters on the brink of recession, Democratic leaders are revisiting an idea born of the Great Depression: gas stamps to help Americans cope with high fuel prices.

    The proposal to subsidize fuel costs for lower-income families and individuals would almost certainly be popular with white, working-class voters and could boost Barack Obama’s appeal with that critical voting bloc in this year’s presidential election.

    Democratic lawmakers and their leaders say they are serious about including it in a second economic stimulus package expected to move this month. Meanwhile, Republicans ridicule the idea as a return to welfare-state politics, which they say characterized the Democratic Party before Bill Clinton.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Another attempt to buy votes from the party that has made a living from buying votes.
