Thinking Creatively

My friend Ray Leppert sends me emails that have some interesting aspects, this is one of them. I think this could work. 
This 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?"

Dear Mr. President,
Patriotic retirement:
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million each 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. All this and it's still cheaper than the
"bailout."
