Oooh oooh ooh

Continuation of this post
And, since every American would get one million dollars, there would no longer be a need for welfare saving us an additional 500 billion per year (older reports estimated the yearly spending to be 1 trillion split between federal/state/local govts so I am figuring federal to be about 50%). Now, I am sure lots of people would squander their million SO, we can reintroduce welfare programs in say 5 years but paying out substantially less than we have been~making more of the help it should be instead of the handout it currently is. Now, we are actually spending more and more each year on welfare but lets pretend that 500 billion is stagnant~that would be a savings of over 2 trillion dollars in those 5 years which could go to reducing our national deficit...instead of just increasing it with this stupid bailout. 
Seriously Washington, it's not that hard! Heck, make it 2 million for each American, there would still be a savings over the current plan. Also, let the companies that are failing fold. Perhaps that money could then be used to start up new, thriving businesses. Oh and states could even save money by halting unemployment benefits for the next 2 years or so~you could also help struggling businesses that had to lay off workers by giving business a one year unemployment tax wave. We would each have 1 or 2 million dollars, what do we care if we don't immediately have a job? 

7 people are laughing with me:

Hmmm... start in local politics - School Board might not be quite the right foot in the door. So, try for city council. Go there, then do state govt and then governor or US govt.... then sign you up for 1st woman prez... yep. Clearly, this is the ticket out! YOU!!!
