My math sucks and I can hardly wrap my brain around all these zeros but….

The government approved a 700 billion dollar bailout for the banks. My bank got 6.6 billion.

There are roughly 303 million people in the US.

Instead of giving it to the banks, give an equal amount to all the people of the US except for the people in charge of the banks who messed up. Seems to me this would stimulate the economy better than giving money to people who fritter it away on God knows what. At least this way when everyone gets laid off they can still contribute to the economy, possibly start their own business and create more jobs. The government won’t have to support the populace by paying unemployment, welfare or any of the other ways the government “helps”. This way people may be able to afford health care.

It’s a thought.
