    Now here's a plan!!?.





    Hi Folks,

    I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

    Instead, 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 entrepreneurs.

    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 real 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 I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .

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

    Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

    That is the way it should be, but I doubt it will ever happen.

    Just think. Why bail out a company to keep from it going under, then that company turn around and do the same thing over again? If the American goverment wants to spend all that money bailing/buying out debt, then why not buy out/bailout some of the Common , working , American workers debt! Then maybe a regular working man/woman that is trying to raise a family could possibly be able to have something to show for all the work!!!:confused2:

    Our Goverment is so mesed up. Bush is about to leave office, so he is trying to look good! Only problem is, it is only looking good for large corporations and the wealthy!!! The poor and regular everyday joe is still gonna suffer. Noteven the stimilus checks helped, because if you owed anything to anyone such as state agency's, then they took it before you got it!!! So, how was that suppose to boost the economy?

    Would be nice if Brother bill's plan actualy happened. It could help a lot of neey folks out!!!

    Folks, it seems that some of you think this is MY plan. I appreciate the thoughts that I could be so smart, but this plan was sent to me in an e-mail from my brother. I just passed it along as it seems like a good plan to me! :)
