Makes Sense To Me

This makes sense to me and I am over 50 so bring it on I will do my part.

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday
February 9, 2009.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the

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

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!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes...
