Just print more money

Dear Editor:

Don’t hold back!

Since our national debt has become irrelevant, why not loan “bail” money to every person and company in need? Our money printing presses operate 24/7. Just change the “plates” ” instead of $1 bills, print $1,000 bills; $5’s become $50,000; $20’s become $200,000, etc., etc.

It took 230 years to accumulate a $5 trillion debt; 238 years, $10 trillion (thanks to Bush, the conservative ” ugh!). You can project these numbers easily to $100 trillion in 20 years.

Would that jump-start the economy? You bet! Then we could see a fast payback of loans and tax dollars to reduce debt.

P.S. I’ll be happy to screen the request. Trust me, I’ll be from the government.
