I have the same idea as you. As the corporations are just going to stick the money in the fat pockets making them fatter.

Also indirectly this would still take care of AIG as well.

It is $450 per person, but the problem could be $500,000 per person soon.

You're exactly right, putting money in the hands of consumers definitely fixes the economy. Just look at what the stimulus did only giving a few hundred and it still turned out pretty good.
Yes the real problem is that the consumer is in too much debt. The people that RUN this country (the ones that pull the strings on the puppet politicians) wnt to keep you in debt. Especially since with this bailout will make you now actually owe to what is essentially the government.
Debt is what keeps you from being free, and McCain and Obama wnt you to stay in debt.
McCain and Obama are full of BS theyre not fixing anything there just making a new bill to make you as the governments beotch.
You essentially would be the next Andrew Jackson because what he did in killing the bank is exactly what you want to do too.

Or you could consider him the next Franklin D Roosevelt. With the new deal plan.

85,000,000,000 divided by 200,000,000 is only 425.00 but i will take it anyway.
