How do you suppose the USA will pay this off when the rest of corporate America goes overseas to lower taxes. They get taxed in the USA at both the Federal and State level.

Resolved Question: A solution to all the
I have a great solution to the worlds problems. We put lots of funding into space travel and we find aliens. then we sell all the people who are a burden on society like the homeless and welfare recipients to the aliens for slaves. that means there are less homeless people and less people to take up resources, and the economy is richer. and then they can use this money for research into cancer and global warming so the people who do try hard in life and do put effort in are rewarded by living longer lives, and if your lazy then you get sent to the aliens to work as a slave.
great idea right???
