The Senate voted to bail out Wall Street and help get this country back on track. If there were serious about wanting to get this country back on track lets look at some better ways of using that money.

How about giving each adult, American citizen $250,000? They could pay off any debts they have perhaps buy themselves a house, car, put their child through college and so stimulate the economy. They could put the money in the bank which is better then everyone pulling their money out of the banks. Those who have their 401(k)s going down the drain would be safe from losing it all and with all this spending the stock market would be sure to sore.

With the billions that is still left over, we could still make sure Social Security never runs out of money. And for the generations to come there would be plenty of money in there so those who have paid into it will receive it when they retire.

We could also assure that everyone had health benefits in this country. This issue has to be one of the most important this country could face.

Let's make sure the young men and women coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan have top notch medical care, not just when they arrive home but well into their settling back into home life. Our leaders should be ashamed how the veterans of past wars have been treated and they be taken care of, too.

Then after all this is taken care of and the country is back on track I believe that the economic picture of this country will be much better of and we'll have saved billions of dollars in the process.
