Americans need to tell their representatives: Pass a bill voters will love, not hate you for, the Bottom-Up Bailout:
SEND EVERY REGISTERED VOTER A CHECK FOR $5,000.
It's a $750 billion investment ($5,000 x 150 million voters) that will:
* Energize the banking system (voters will deposit those checks).
* Ease the foreclosure crisis (a 2-voter household will have $10,000 found money for making payments).
* Stimulate the economy big-time (revitalizing companies and preserving jobs through consumer confidence, expenditures, and investments).
In addition, the Bottom-Up Bailout will drive voter registration to record levels--great for our democracy!
There's STILL TIME for this! By just announcing that they are considering it, Congress will revive confidence more than anything. And of course the Bottom-Up Bailout can be combined with other prudent rescue and reform measures.
Congress should get this message by Thursday, October 2, 2008 if at all possible--or shortly thereafter.
