Dear Mr. President,
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force - Pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:
1. They retire immediately. 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.
It can't get any easier than that!
P. S.. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their constituents pay their taxes…
