$3320.71

These bailouts are starting to get to get our of control. Its starting to feel like big business just needs to become SO large and be so unethical that they have to be bailed out. So I have to been thinking about what a bailout for the normal people of this country. People that have not done the wrong thing, people like Jo and myself. We pay our taxes, our mortgage, dont live off credit cards. We if we took a Trillion dollars and divided it by the current population? According to google the current population is 301,139,947. So if we do the math;

$1,000,000,000,000.00   the proposed cost of the current bailout

                              ÷

            301,139,947  the current population according to google 

                      $3320.7152022245657  the amount of bailout

                                                   money per each person in the US.

So that would be a bailout that I could get behind. Give me $3320.71 thats a few mortgage payments. While now giving everyone in this country $3320.71 might not be a good idea. I mean I’m sure Co would love to pocket that kind of scratch. He would be rolling around in hand made strollers and cashmere diapers. But that does not sound right, as a tax payer I should not be funding a 5 month olds need for high end under garments. So what if we just gave the 1 Trillion to people that filed taxes last year. According to the IRS the number is 139,300,000. Lets do the math!

$1,000,000,000,000.00   the proposed cost of the current bailout

                              ÷

            139,300,000  the amount of people that filled taxes in 2007 

                      $7178.75089734386  the amount of bailout

                                                   money per each person in the US.

$7178.75 per person, In the end the money still goes to the banks that need the loans re-payed. I think you get the same results, and we also dont reward people and companies for doing a bad job. That’s $14357.50 for a our household… I’ll take it!!
