Nancy Polosi and Barak Obama, say that we don’t have a spending problem, but instead have a revenue problem. I have an idea that might convince them otherwise. Let’s make the members of congress and Obama stand on a street corner and sell pencils, motor oil, candy, cookies, and pies. They must work 12 hours a day, seven days a week for as many years as needed until the sixteen trillion dollar national debt is paid in full.

They are not to receive any pay for themselves until every penny is paid. That’s how real business works, the boss/owner doesn’t get paid until after all the other bills is paid. If one of them dies before his/her task is completed, then their children and grandchildren must take their place. No more elections will take place until the bill is paid. No tax hikes will take place either. All current taxes will be used only to run the country and none of it will be used to pay down the debt.

One more thing, they must pay 35% of the profits to the businesses that sell those items now, so that those businesses are not losing anything due to their loss in sales. Whenever a congressman has a profit of more than $200,000 per year the rate will be increased to 50%.

They need to stay out of the halls of congress and make no further laws until this goal is achieved. This might make them realize just how the economy works and why they need to stop the spending.

How long do you think they would work at this pace, before they realize someone has spent way too much money?

Just something to think about!
