Since gpamp and Paladin phucked up the GOP thread...

I thought I'd share a Socialistic idea that actually make sense. I mean, if we're going to throw away money anyway, might as well do it right...

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.

Heh... go figure.

I was thinking remove all taxes on everyone for one year. It would put money in everyone's pockets and jumpstart the economy AND be cheaper

Thank goodness I am still young enough to clear that 40 year mark. I guess if socialism is how we have to go then this might be more fun............

Leave my job...i'd be crazy in a week. But i'd be spending money like a MoFo on finishing all my existing projects.
Does said American car have to be an "American"car...like a BMW, built in Alabama, or a Toyota pick-up, built in Texas? Don't matter, i'll but whatever & sell it to some schlub. and drive my 69 pickup.
OK...i buy 15-20 acres of land, & build my dome house...out of recycled materials.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Any time frame for verification for all of this to happen.?

The 90% tax rate that follows would be fun!
