Each year, 4 billion $1 bills are printed. Keep the presses going by printing $1,000 bills instead of $1 bills.

This would created a surplus of $4 trillion and enough to cover the deficit for three years. As a result, you could stamp dollar coins and do away with pennies and nickels.

Inflation is coming anyway, so let’s give it a kick start so the U.S. can move toward Third World status sooner. I’m 80 years old and now believe I will live to see the demise of the dollar. Congress will see to it.
