While this could be complete BS about it being in the newspaper, I don't know. I got this in my email and you know all to well about that stuff.
While I don't know if it's true I do have to put my stamp of approval on it and would support it if someone in Congress tried to pass it.
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,
There's 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!
