Ok here's what we do. The GOP keeps cutting taxes for their friends. Well, that money stays in the overseas bank accounts. Why don't we the American People MAKE THEM SPEND CASH! Trash their homes. Hire workers to replace windows, paint, fix the lawn. Burn thier cars. Now they have to buy new ones. Sink the million dollar boats so they have to buy new ones. Trash their offices. Break in to a house and trash it. Smash their TV, they buy a new one. Destroy their beds, they buy new ones. These rich bastards refuse to spend their money. The GOP keeps cutting more taxes for them so they can sleep on a pile of thousand dollar bills and use the same bills to light cigars and wipe their asses. Why don't we make them SPEND that money? How many jobs would be created if one of their 50,000 square foot houses had to get all new carpets? All those walls and ceilings needed to be repainted? If all 50 windows on the house had to be replaced? Set one of their garages on fire and watch as the dozen cars they have inside burn and then they go out and buy new ones! Exxon Mobile made over 40billion$ profit! And where does that go... oversea banks! Make them spend that money by trashing every thing they own!

I like John Stewart's solution better: Give the TARP money to people who owe credit card companies and mortgages. Let them pay off their bills, and that money will give the banks the cash needed to open their credit. Bills are paid, houses are owned, and everyone is happy.

Better still: cap wealth at $1,000,000,000.00.

Mandatory financial retirement at that level.

Tax everything over that amount at 100%.

Nobody has a "right" to unlimited wealth.

The Govt. should stop all foreign aid to countries that allow the rich to open off shore accounts for the purpose of avoiding lawful taxes.

Actually all foreign aid should be stopped anyway. Fix the Roads and bridges in the good old USA first. And affordable health care would be nice also.

Actually... The GOP already said they'd vote against and fillibuster anything that would give one penny to the "lower classes" of Americans. 350billion to their friends, they scream pass it or you're anti American. 10billion to build new schools for the "lower classes" and suddenly they're against spending. If you took the money given to the billionaire friends of the GOP and split it up amongst the people each taxpayer, roughly 188million, would get over 10,000 each!

Hot DAMN!!! IM RICH!!!!!

Oh wait, no Im not, I only make 60,000 a year, but the tax cuts sponsored by the GOP have helped my family and I out tremendously.

If you really want to help the poor out, call your Senators and Congressman and tell them to get serious about passing the Fair Tax. That way, every payday they would get their entire paycheck...no withholding for income tax, social security or medicare. Everything would be based on a sales tax with the poor getting a "prebate" check reimbursing them for the sales tax on living expenses.

You have noticed that the ten most poverty stricken cities in the US are all solid Democrat right?
