This is for Bill Clinton who believes rich people don't pay high enough taxes:

Dear Mr. Clinton,

I have a proposition to make to you. You give me $1,000,000 for one year. I will hire a bunch of people and we will make a product or service that will replace that $1,000,000 in the second year so those people can keep their jobs. At the same time, you give $1,000,000 to a government entity, local, state or federal and let it hire people to create a service that taxpayers in that area will be willing to contribute another $1,000,000 every year to maintain. It has to be a new service - no hiring five guys to increase garbage collection.

At the end of two years, we will see which use of $1,000,000 is best - investing in the marketplace, or giving it to government.
