    Dear Mr Obama,

    Please find below our suggestion for fixing the US economy.

    Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

    You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
    There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.

    Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

    1) They MUST retire.
    Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed

    2) They MUST buy a new American car.
    Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed

    3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
    Housing Crisis fixed

    4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
    Crime rate fixed

    5) They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
    And there's your money back in duty/tax etc

    It can't get any easier than that!

    So, the government is going spend money that it doesn't have, and give it to people for cars, houses, school, and liquor. In turn, they have to do what the government tells them.

    Obama would love this socialist plan.
