How about a plan to fix the economy that will: * Put money directly in the hands of working, responsible American households * Promote spending without costing taxpayers * Completely reverse the 2008 losses in consumer spending To reignite our economy, we need to spend money. Unlike Washington and Wall Street, we have the power to spend money without handouts or bailouts. Americans have over $8.1 Trillion in IRAs and 401(k)s. The Refunding America plan, calls for legislation to allow anyone with a Defined Contribution account (including 401(k), 403(b), 457, TSP, etc) or an IRA to withdraw up to 20% of their account balance without paying penalties or income tax. The proposed legislation would grant this opportunity to any IRA or DC account holder for any reason. This will put an extra $22,000, on average, into the hands of 64% of working American households.
