 Another way out of this government/banking problem.  Dear Congressmen, I wish two million dollars to open the new US Citizens bank.  This bank will buy one billion dollars of the distressed homes for the 1985 value of that home, taking thousands of the bad asset homes off the books from the banks that can't fail and put them into the hands of Americans at a rate they can afford.  The other one billion will be used for credit card services.  Transfers at ten percent fixed and rate on cards at three percent over prime.  As I expect to receive this money at no cost and pay it back with no interest charges this bank will be profitable from the start.  I as CEO will be paid Sixty thousand a year and no one in the bank will receive more then I do.  All profits will be returned into the bank for new loans.

thank you and please contact me Federal Government money bags with a money order for the entire amount.  I will notify the American people when the bank is up and running threw this media outlet.
