A fwd'd e-mail ;
This was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.
The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the
Economy?" I thought this was the BEST idea....I think this guy nailed it!
Dear Mr. President,
Re: Patriotic retirement:
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force - Pay them
$1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:
1. They retire immediately.. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2. They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
3. They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.
It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their
constituents pay their taxes…
Helluva a lot cheaper than a stimulus bill
