Great Idea!

Thanks to Christine Finer.

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?"

"Dear Mr. President:
Patriotic retirement: There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million apiece severance with 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 or pay off their mortgage -- Housing Crisis fixed.

Much cheaper than the trillions being ineffectively spent on the financial industry.
