Something To Think About

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

I received this as a forward yesterday:

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 may use the money for their own company's benefit or worse (squander the money on lavish parties and 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. This creates Forty million job openings - Unemployment is fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry is fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis is 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...

Now that is something to think about!
