You have slightly less than 40 million Americans over the age of 50. So let’s just say it’s 40 million.
Have the government give each man and woman 50 and over one million dollars.
The stipulations are these:
1. They must retire.
2. They must buy a home and move from the home or apartment or place they live now but must continue to live in The United States.
3. Each person must buy a NEW AMERICAN CAR.
4. Each person must buy at least 3 major new appliances in the first year.
5. You must be an American citizen, a legal one, for 5 years.
You solve the housing industries problems. They will have to build new homes and banks will have to loan money to the builders, keeping banks happy.
You solve the car industries problems and create a huge market for American auto builders bringing new employees into existing or reopened factories.
You solve unemployment because so many people retire from work, creating jobs everywhere in all facets of the economy.
You decrease energy use by people buying newer cars, electric cars and more efficient cars.
You get better than half of congress out of Washington because they’d have to retire.
All at a cost of less than 500 Billion dollars.
Yes, I know this is something being talked about and it’s not new.
I still would like you to share your thoughts. Comments? Questions?
