Congress and the White House would never be this Enterprising

Here is a brilliant idea, thinking out of the box....
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!

Patriotic Retirement:
There's about 40 million people over 50 in the U.S. work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations.
1) They leave their jobs immediately.
Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They must 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..

Best Part: It only costs us 40 million Dollars, budget crisis over!

I like this idea! Send our 2 million via overnight mail! We'll buy a new Lincoln, and since our house is paid off, we'll pay off our kids', and then they can use their mortgage money to stimulate the economy with the money they won't be spending on their mortgages.

Who do we call to get this passed?

Ummmm. there's a little math error there. 40million people. $1million each. Wouldn't that be $40TRILLION?
