Just what do these politicians think they are doing? Why don’t they just pay off all our mortgages. Now there would be a boost to the economy? And they might as well. The current plan costs as much as paying off 90% of all mortgages using 9.7 trillion as the real total figure.
Imagine. Even a single trillion would take care of all our credit card debt and student loans. Two trillion would pay for all our health care expenses. Imagine if they devoted this money to these purposes. A year of jubilee.
