Heres a real economic bailout!!

30 posts in this topic

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.

$425.00 per person grin

At 30%, we would get about $297.50. Is not worth it in my book!

This is just so classic and a true statement of American society.

We will believe anything we are told as long as it sounds good beucase we are too lazy to do the math ourselves.

Can we do something to outlaw ridiculous chain mails? I think this forum would be much more intelligent without them.

Nice first two topics, coyote. One rant, one wildly inaccurate!

I wouldn't jump too hard on Coyote. This has been posted on here before. I've had a lot of people send this too me that fell for it. Then you look at it and think it's seems like too much money so you whip out the calc and there ya go.

Sandmannd, I'm jumping because I've seen several posts here, not to mention many in my email in-box, playing fast-and-loose with the truth in the past week or two.

Those who pass these things on without bothering to think about them or analyze them are spreading ignorance. That's a punishable crime in my book.

My question is, why don't I get left-wing emails? Only right-wing emails? I think I'm going to have to seriously examine my choice of friends!

This one again? Do the math it is $425.00 NOT $425,000.00.

Did I say I wrote this? Did I say I did the math? Didn't think so! MAXIMUM12.......Maybe you should quit assuming things and being so judgemental. Everything you write draws a pretty good description of your personality. Were you treated poorly as a child? Is that why your so rude?

coyotewylde, I was treated just as I should have been as a child.

I've been told I'm rude because I used to be a Republican!

I think Max is little confused politically, he is not as bad as some on these threads.

NAPAFISH, how dare you call me not as bad as 'those' others. Guess I'm going to have to ramp it up a notch... wink

And my political views aren't confused. They're diverse.

Sure looked to me like you had written it, as there were no "quotes" or acknowledgement of where it came from. I would have checked the math before I posted it.

Anyone care to do the math if we were to divide the 700 billion between the 22 million people who actually filed a tax return?

Bet THAT would be a sweet economic stimulous package.
