Got this from a friend and thought it sounded like a solution...especially since I am one of the "over 50". What do you think???
The Business Section of the St. Petersburg Times 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,
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force - Pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:
1) They leave their jobs. 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!
PS If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their constituents pay their taxes…
Now how much simpler can that fix be?????
