how to end the debt

Dear President Obama,

I came up with a solution to end the country"s debt. It's very simple, and might just work. If we do a state lottery, for every state. Heres how it works. Every legal American citizen with a social security number and an income, NOT WEFARE, will have one dollar a month automatically take from their pay/income, must have a job, social security, or retirement funds. Once a month the number gets pulled, This is done by your social security number. one third goes to the person, tax free, one third goes to the state for repairs, or healthcare, taxes, the other third goes to pay down the the country's debt. If this is done in each state, The debt will go way down in no time. The money going to the state will bring down the cost of fixing the streets, bridges, medical for seniors,ect… you get the picture. Not to mention the person getting the money will put them in a better financial state. Who among us could not spare a dollar a month, with the chance of receiving much more back, and lower taxes. Most people spend more then that on coffee. I hope this helps. Please let me know what you think.

Thank you.
