This is from an article in the St. Pete rsburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"


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!


If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their

constituents pay their taxes...

Hell, I'm on board with THAT.


We just paid off our home, anyways.


But a new combine, well, that would be cool.


But cooler, would be a fancy, little fishing lake.


With a new pontoon boat and dock.


John is right. Too great an idea.
