If it sounds to good to be true....

I knew I should have gotten my calculator out.

85 billion divided by 200 million is $425 not $425,000. And that is before taxes with the 30% tax. That would make it $297.50. That would do about as much good as Bush's stimulus plan.. I bet that guy is wishing he hadn't put his name on that but hey, I put it on my blog so what can I say.

I still like the sentiment. It does seem like there has to be a better plan but the question is, do we have the time? The 7 hundred and something points that the stock market dropped yesterday probably cost more in the long run than the bail out would have.

Ha! Glad you got the calculator out! Kinda funny.... who knows what the right answer is and what we should do. God has a plan and He is in control. I keep trying to remind myself to not get caught up in the hubbub. Good to see you this morning and glad we got to chat for a few minutes. I had to run back in to help Cheryl. I wish I could have talked with you longer. I'm sorry you're having a rough time with Chloe. Let me know if you need some help or anything while your hubbie is gone. See you next week!

I know right! I was wondering if it would come out right. I guess if you added up all the other we have spent bailing out everyone else before now, then it would be enough. Good thought. Im afriad that even if it was enough it would never happen. Could you imagine the irs mailing out checks for 300,000 to people?! lol...
