"How Would You Fix the Economy?"

Post by Doreen on May 8th 2009, 6:15 am

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on
Sunday.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"


I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy.
Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander
the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.


You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the
following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing
Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!

If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their
constituents pay their taxes...

I like the part about them paying their taxes! Laughing

But where with the forty trillion dollars come from?
