They have tried everything else (with the exception of the “Fair Tax”) so why not……
Maybe this is supposed to be a joke, but it’s so simple I think it would actually work!! Wish we had a president who would actually try something like this – and the congress to pass it!
This was an article ( so I’m told ) from the St. Petersburg Times newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for their ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?” I think this reader nailed it!
Dear Mr. President,
There’s about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million dollars apiece Severance Pay with these 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.
DONE! Economy fixed.
Sounds good to me!!
