Dear President Obama,
The other day I was having lunch with my friend, Sharon and we happened to be talking about how excited and proud we were that you would be the next president. As we were musing over the country's current financial slide with our waiter, he asked if we knew the fate of the $700 billion bailout funds and were any slated for the general population. To our knowledge at that time, nothing had been published to that effect.
Our proposal is simple, since the $700 billion is allocated to help restart the economy, consider this: There are about 350 million people living in the US, so create a package that would allocate $1million to each citizen; contingent on the condition that the funds be used to pay off all outstanding debt and remaining funds could be used to reinvest in the economy. Then the remaining funds can go to the banks and other businesses.
Mr. President, your call to service for the country was clear in your speeches and if we are to believe that you want to grow the economy from the bottom up...then this would be the time to pay it forward and put the country back on track.
