Dear President Obama:
You’ve said that you plan to save or create 3-million jobs. It’s too late to save mine. At the end of the summer, Tropical Storm Fay tore through northeast Florida and destroyed my boss’s house. By October, she could no longer continue as she had, so she had to eliminate my job.
As I am now a geezer, no one seems interested in hiring me. I need a job created.
However, reports show that for each of the 3-million jobs, you are planning to spend $217,000. That seems like a lot of money to me since the average job in this country earns $40,000. I’m willing to make you a better deal.
Send me $50,000 a year, and I’ll pass up your having to create a job for me. It will save you some trouble, and it will save the taxpayers $167,000.
Sounds good, huh? When can I expect my check?
