A relative sent this to me and I just had to pass it along.
If you are age 50 or older, you will love this idea! Sounds like plain, common sense to me! But then, I am over 50 so I may be a little prejudiced.
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?" I thought this was the BEST idea....I think this guy nailed it!
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 retire immediately. 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. It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their constituents pay their taxes.
