Several months ago an email was floating around that said that the quickest way to rejuvinate the economy was to follow Kynsian economic theory(I know I am spelling that wrong. Sorry brain block.). The suggestion was to divide up the proposed "economic stimulus" among American "citizens" 18 years of age and older. The stimulus check would be taxable by the US goverment, thereby returning a % back to the treasury. Welfare recipiants would be off welfare for the time frame equal to the amount of the stimulant check. A majority of the populus would more than likely pay down/off their existing debt, thereby easing the credit pinch. They would also more than likely purchase consumer goods or invest any amount over their debt load,thus creating a huge cash inflow directly into our economy. Let our own people fix our economy in the fastest most effective way! Not in the questionable, negative, debt increasing outcome that we are being forced to swallow by congress.
