The McLane Bailout Plan

I’ve listened to all of the ideas. The $700 billion bailout is just over the top stupid. While the housing market is screwed up, bailing out bad businesses isn’t the right way to do it.

Why not just let all of those people in crappy deals refinance in FHA fixed rate mortgages? Seems like offering folks an easy way to refinance to a bond-backed fixed mortgage would be a lot less expensive and pour trillions of US bases dollars into the economy.

My other idea is to split the $700 billion equally among my friends. So, if you want a cut of the $700 billion just leave a comment declaring me your friend and I’ll let George know, ok?

    Sweet, so far that’s $350 billion each. Enough to buy Canada.

    Let’s give John McCain half and Barack Obama Half. Whoever does the best job using the money to make the world better gets to be president. They only have until November 3 to not only submit their plans but to put everything into action. Then on the November 4 everyone gets to vote who did the best job.

    I think we are still all going to have to struggle on about $100 billion each. Can you make it on that? I’m going to start with this.

    At only $160 million, I’ll still have plenty left to buy Canada.

    no thanks, i’m happy being overworked and underpaid…..
    I rather earn my money than be a rich bureaucrat. Power to the people.. share the money to the things that need it…

    If everyone didn’t have such massive debt, this wouldn’t be an issue. Dave Ramsey: “100% of the houses in foreclosure have a mortgage on it.” lol (Deep, I know.)

    I have a new financial plan that could revolutionize this country. It’s called, “Spend less than you make.”
