The Birk Economic Recovery Plan - an alternate solution!


Recommended Posts

(I got this via email and had to share it with you - sorry if this isn't the place for it, but it was my best guess.)



*Subject:* The Birk Economic Recovery Plan



Hi Pals,


*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 billon; 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 Birk plan only /really /costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.


/Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest./


Kindest personal regards,




T. J. Birkenmeier, A Creative Guy & Citizen of the Republic


*PS: Feel free to pass this along to your pals, as it's either good for a laugh, or a tear, or a very sobering thought on how to best use **$85 Billion!!**

I loved it too, till a friend pointed out that the math is off- we'd each get $425, NOT $425,000.


either way, as long as they're printing and giving away money....that's a buncha preps smile
