So, ya.....this Stimulus (sp?) bill........... What do I think will work best for the economy? Something that will make the every day person (the ones who actually spend money, buying goods, eating out, contracting services...entertaining ourselves....) feel safe. My plan: This stimulus package should pay off our mortgages. Give us our houses free and clear. BUT with stipulations. By relieving our biggest burden, and removing the fear of loosing the most important thing to us, we will become freer to start contracting out those services again, buying new, needed, items. And maybe, just maybe going out to dinner again. The stipulations would be: a)This house could NEVER be mortgaged again for more than 30% of the total value of the house with at cap set at 50K. b)But these loans can NOT be taken out for more than 10K at a time! b.1) AND they can only be used for improvements/upkeep on the house (which will have strict rules to follow) b.2) OR for a lump sum (10K) to be sent to the educational institution that your child just graduated from. c)This house can NEVER be used as collateral!!!!!!!! Same thing for Business owners but only for buildings strictly used for that business. (No paying off of the nephew's garage (or your shed) as a home base for you "business") The same stipulations would be set, but the total would max out at 80K and the increments would be 20K The loans would be a bit more lenient business demands only (again the will NOT be allowed to borrow against a trucking business to purchase a Saturn, motorcycle or a new stove) When you sell this previously "Governmental paid off" house/business. The new money goes 100% into a new business or house. Your new stipulations will be set at your new houses/business' value. If you are not putting this money back into a new house or business you will pay a penalty. And it will not be a small one 80 % of the Original "paid off total" Do you think this will work? How do I get this to the new Prez?
