    It was a populist plank, not a progressive one. In the name of defending "working families", they're actually giving a big tax breaks to affluent households who have the biggest homes to heat, etc. And it deprives the government of about $1 billion in revenue.

    If they wanted to benefit "working families" or the working poor, etc....I don't see how saving the rich households on their energy bills does much for them. Better to keep it in place, but have more generous tax credits for the most needy in place.
