    Think. Simple solution to the Nat'l debt.

    We owe $17 TRILLION dollars, (about 1 1/2 trillion to China). As an economist stated we can raise the MW and the gov't can collect more taxes. WOW. Now our economy is set up now at $7.25/hour and the gov't is collecting over $200 billion dollars a month. Just think, if the gov't gets $200 billion/month now, if we just increase the MW to the $1,000/hr as someone suggested this would be about 150 time more than the present MW . If all things remain equal, the the gov't could collect about $25 trillion dollars/month and in just a couple of months we would be completely out of debt and all citizens would have so much money to spend they couldn't spend it all.
    Wake up Obama and congress, don't raise it to $9 go for the $1,000..
    The way I figure it. it sounds good.....
