Will Obama discuss the Cash for Caulkers in his State of the Union Address on January 27th?
On one hand, now that Scott Brown has been elected as a Massachusetts Senator, one could argue the odds of the Cash for Caulkers program becoming a reality probably have decreased. With Brown’s victory, the Democrats no longer have their supermajority which is needed to overcome any GOP filibusters. The number one priority for the Democrats right now is trying to deliver on the President’s desire for health care reform, which is distracting from any progress with Cash for Caulkers.
On the other hand, the White House may seek to do something about the unemployment rate and promote the Cash for Caulkers plan as a way to not only increase energy efficiency in our country, but also put people to work.
What do you think? Will the President reveal more about his intentions for Cash for Caulkers next week? Leave a comment with your opinion below.
