I think this comes up almost every session. I would expect it to have a worse chance than usual, given the debt we're putting ourselves into.

It's an interesting concept but from the light reading I just did it seems that there are more problems with it than it would be worth. Especially the prebate thing. I mean, it's similar to the tax refund you get only it SEEMS like you'd be depending on them not to screw out of money much more often.

As someone for whom income tax refunds exist in a misty world of numbers that somehow coalesce into a refund check, I'm not entirely certain I would want it to become a monthly thing.
