Unless you have been living under a rock you should be aware that the US economy is (by most standards) in shambles.
Each month there seems to be more and more joining the ranks of the unemployed . Then of course there is the mantra about health insurance. It seems that there are some who want health but for one reason or another are unable to acquire it. I won’t go into my personal belief about why most people who do not have health insurance do not have it.
Being the brilliant person that I am, I think I have come up with a solution that will guarantee over sixty-nine thousand people health insurance!!
Recently the Secretary of State, Robert Gates, announced plans to increase the ranks of the US Army by 22k! Now according to the latest government statistics the size of an average American family is 3.14 people.
So I suggest that 22k people who are currently unemployed and do not have health insurance go down to your local Army Recruiting office and pledge to defend this nation against all enemies (foreign and domestic).
This single act will insure each family with instant health care but the individual who joins the US Army may be trained in a new field of work. Not only those benefits but there are many more benefits that active duty military enjoy.
Don’t forget that the Army is not the only branch of the military that is “hiring.” Don’t forget the Coast Guard, Air Force, Navy and Marines!
So if you hear of anyone complaining about not being able to find a job or acquire health insurance just guide them over to the nearest US Army Recruiting Office.
Now if some of you can come up with any other suggestions to help those who are (apparrently) unwilling to help themselves maybe we can just turn this thing around!
