The following is an aletrnative to the proposed Free Land Act of 2011:
The time has come for thinking out of the box; for thinking critically about drafting a resolution for and taking action on a pressing matter that if
precautions are not initiated soon will adversely affect the wellbeing of every man, woman and child in America. The Social Security system,
Medicare, Medicaid and many state social services programs are at dire risk of imploding. There are neither the finances nor resources to maintain
such overtaxed and overburdened programs.
To relieve the pressure, prevent the collapse of a once vibrant and beneficial system of assistance to those in need, and to encourage support for
those who have also worked hard to support others, the time has come to initiate the followin:
PLAN I: PATRIOTIC RETIREMENT(ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT): THE INVEST IN AMERICA, SOLUTION.
Call it what you will, but the simplicity of the following program is exactly what America needs to take the pressure off burdening supports, and
encourage re-investment in the American way of life.
ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND STABILITY ACT: THE INVEST IN AMERICA, SOLUTION.
INVEST IN AMERICA – I (Invest) AM (America), THE SOLUTION
Please find below a simplistic compilation of suggestions for fixing America’s economy. Instead of giving any bail-outs of billions of dollars to
companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan:
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. We suggest that the United States Government offer them $1 million each as severance for
early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire from their current employment and not hire on as an employee anywhere in America again. Forty million job openings will occur –
National unemployment statistics will decrease as younger potential employees and college graduates are then hired. Unemployment fixed. (New retirees
CAN start a business if they hire new employees too)
2) They MUST buy a new AMERICAN Made Automobile. With forty million new cars ordered the auto industry will once again become stable and solvent with
jobs and needed resources enjoying economic growth- Auto Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house/condo or pay off their mortgage on real estate in America thereby increasing jobs, and stabilizing the housing and
mortgage issues - Housing Crisis fixed.
4) They MUST purchase a life insurance policy to insure that those who depend on them for support will be taken care of in the event of untimely
death or medical setbacks. –Dependents and Caregiver Coverage Fixed.
5) They MUST purchase and carry yearly medical, dental and vision coverage for themselves and their dependents, decreasing healthcare costs and
burdens for for the nation and insure continued wellbeing and quality of life. Healthcare coverage fixed.
6) They MUST forfeit all future Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits decreasing trillions of dollars of social welfare costs; eliminating
the financial burdens on the coming generations, and encouraging self-determination. Budget Deficit fixed.
It can't get any easier than that!!
Mr. President, while you're at it, let's require Congress to covert to Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed
With the implementation of this retirement plan, America’s military personnel can be brought home to plentiful jobs without fear of increasing the
THE AMERICAN VETERAN “ACKNOWLDEGEMANT OF SACRIFICE” ACT – VETERANS’ AOS ACT:
