Could it be this simple?

I think this is PERFECT~ Exactly what our economy needs!

There 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'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.

Like most people have been saying, the government is bailing out the wrong people!

This was emailed to me and I thought it hit home.


  1. I don't know about COULD IT BE THIS SIMPLE? but more WHY CAN'T IT BE THIS SIMPLE??? I'm not very political at all, but it sounds like a FABULOUS plan to me!!!

    Love your new blog!

  2. I agree with Shari....why can't it be that simple???

  3. PS......I love the picture on your header! ♥

  4. I'm so glad you came over here to follow me! The picture is of an old post office and I just love the old bottles in the window and knew that it was perfect for my new blog.

  5. What a great fix...I think it could work. Also, lovely new blog.
    Warmest Regards,
