I should be president

Just a thought, if the government wants to stimulate our economy with a $700 billion bailout of failing companies (not including the $ they will eventually give to the auto workers union and possibly now to Citibank) why not instead just give $1 million to each American adult. The population is estimated to be 303 million people...obviously those aren't all adults but since I don't know how many of those are adults we will just pretend they all are. That would be $303 million dollars spent (um, our money anyway) and billions saved and I doubt many people are millions of dollars in debt so it would pretty much guarantee a spending increase; therefore us no longer being in a recession. Instead they are giving billions away to companies (unions) that aren't going to change the practices that got them into trouble in the first place and not put any money back into our pockets to truly stimulate the economy by increasing spending. All this is doing is prolonging the inevitable, likely leading to a depression and since they gave all our money to companies there won't be any left to help people when we will need it. 

Sounds like a no brainer to me. And I'm even willing to give that money to people who don't pay a cent in taxes~illegals, however, are another story (sorry Obama's aunt). This would be a plan that truly spreads the wealth!
originally saw something somewhat similar in an email but i cant remember what the email actually said
