How Would You Fix the Economy?

How simple can it get?Early RetirementThe FixThere recently was an article in the St. Petersburg Fl. Times. 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!!P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes....Mr... President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If not, please disregard.

  • Fix The Economy

    Dear Mr. President,

    Change you Agenda. Stop giving tax dollars to the banks at 0% interest. They'l start lending. Stop all Socialism to America. Stop making everyday tax payers pay Corporate Monoploy Health Care Cost (Wal Mart Now Mc Donalds) make them pay their own health care for their employees like the Union Business's pay. Make the CEO's and Congress earn their pay. No pay unless earned it. You say the Bush administration caused the recession but your's increased it. Stop killing small business and refinancing & lowering principle loans & interest rates for foreclosure's again all at the cost of the tax payers. You say the rich starts at 250,000 dollars. NO WAY. The rich start at $1,000,000. dollars NET stop lying to Americans. We The People are NOT PHEASANTS. We the People want you Mr. President to STOP YOUR SOCIALIST AGENDA. It is NOT WELCOME HERE IN THE USA! This is a start maybe you'l get re-elected with this CHANGE.

  • Sounds like a very good start to me!
    Now I think I have to report that two cents on my taxes...
  • And my two cents worth:

    Rescind the "stimulus" legislation, enact a moratorium on federal expenditure increases until our budget is balanced, then pass a bill making it so and in the year the budget is in balance, propose and pass a flat-tax.... then voila! Obama may get elected to second term, but my silly ideas presume an adherence to our Constitution, belief in free enterprise and the rejection of Soclalist and Marxist views and policies coupled with the ability to actually think and analyze beyond the ability of a high-school drop-out...silly me!
