You could take the Assets of every Millionaire and Billionaire in the United States, cash them out and send that Money to the Treasury and it wouldn’t make a dent in our National Debt. It would be a rounding error at best.

I think that European atheist billionaires should give out money to rectify income inequality.

Government has no money - it’s taxpayers money of which only 47% pay federal taxes.

You first, DICK, uh, Richard.

A good start would be a check for $1 million to me - I’ll continue the process of contributing the money to the rest of the economy for as long as I’m married. :>) If interested, PM me and I’ll give you more details. Thanks.

There’s no such thing as ‘free cash’, Bonehead.

Even so much as a penny given to Paul is always taken from Peter.

Sorry Dick. We’re already having a hell of a time with freeloaders sneaking into the country for the free stuff and free money. Your brilliant idea sucks.
