A Million Dollars In Every Pot!
Ok, let me get this straight - I think I might have a solution to this economic crisis we've gotten ourselves into.
Today, President Obama signed a $787 billion dollar stimulus package bill, with the goal of creating 3.5 million jobs and help pull the U.S. out of one of the worst recessions in generations.
Ok, so if it takes one thousand millions to make a billion and the U.S. population is about 300 million - why not just give every American citizen 1 million dollars?
Take 1 billion out of the 787, give everyone 1 million, and we still have 700 million in change.
Not only would everyone be happy and willing to both spend and save - heck - we'd still have $786+ in today's signed package!
Think about it. Why the hell not?
Oh crap, I think my math is wrong... never mind...
