Maybe some of you've seen this. Sure makes more sense than the same old "solutions."
This is from an article in the St. Petersburg , FL Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
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 made CAR or TRUCK. Forty million cars & trucks ordered – American Auto Industry fixed. Chevy, Ford and Chrysler turn a profit
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed-no more foreclosed homes.
It can't get any easier than that!
If more money is needed, have all members of Congress pay their taxes...
If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.
If not, please disregard. Then shoot yourself!!!! 1 job opening
