How to Fix the Economy

"How Would You Fix the Economy?"

This was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?" This article was one of the ideas submitted...

Dear Mr. President,

Patriotic retirement:

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/pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

Can't get any easier than that!

That's awesome. It would be just as easy as that, if the people over 50 were smart like you hope they would be. Like what would they do with their million? Pay off the house? Buy a new car? or blow it on crud.

Are you glad I left a comment? :)

That's just way too simple for our government; no red tape involved!
