Heres An Idea

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....
 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 -instantly-- 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.
