Instead of giving $700 billion to Wall Street, give $1 million to every American, with the stipulation that it must be used to pay off debt (mortgage, credit card, equity, etc), and if there's anything left over, you can keep it.
It's 1% of the cost of the Treasury's plan.
I dare say most people could get their butts out of the hole with a lot less than a megabuck, and the Christmas shopping this year would be FANTASTIC!
Most of it will go to the banks anyway, which is where Bernanke & co. want it to go, but this was we get to use it first to save our own arses, instead of theirs.
It's brilliant, I tell you. frickin' brilliant.
