    a better economic plan?

    got this from a friend this afternoon
    made me smile
    then said WHY NOT? Andrea

    Instead of bailing out AIG to the tune of $85,000,000,00, I'm in favor
    of giving $85,000,000,000 to
    America in a We Deserve It Dividend.

    To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide
    U.S.
    Citizens 18+.

    Our population is about 301,000, 000 +/- counting every man, woman and
    child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up.

    So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billion that equals
    $425,000.00.

    My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It
    Dividend.

    Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

    So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.

    Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.

    That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

    But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

    A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

    What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

    Pay off your mortgage " housing crisis solved".

    Repay college loans " what a great boost to new grads"

    Put away money for college " it'll be there"

    Save in a bank " create money to loan to entreprene urs".

    Buy a new car " create jobs"

    Invest in the market " capital drives growth"

    Pay for your parent's medical insurance " health care improves"

    Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean " or else"

    Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks
    who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is
    cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

    If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of
    trickling out a puny $1000.00 ("vote buy" )economic incentive that is
    being proposed by one of our candidates for President.

    If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every
    adult U S Citizen 18+!

    As for AIG " liquidate it".

    Sell off its parts.

    Let American General go back to being American General.

    Sell off the r eal estate.

    Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

    Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn't.

    Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work."

    But can you imagine the Coast-To -Coast Block Party!

    How do you spell Economic Boom?

    I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the
    $85 Billion

    We Deserve It Dividend more than the geniuses at AIG or in
    Washington
    DC.

    And remember, This plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5
    Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

    Uncle Dave is correct.

    Looks like "O-ba-ma-nomics" to me.

    Next think you know, people will believe we can cut 95% of everyone's taxes and balance the budget!

    Yesterday afternoon my dd arrived home from school as I was ironing while watching Fox Business.

    My dd said to me,

    "Did you see O'Reilly take out Barney Frank?"
    "When is Congress going to stop all their finger pointing?"

    That's my girl! BTW, she's 12!
