Going to suggest something out there but why couldn't there be a semi-permanent QE that guarantees a minimum level of funding - say $30,000 per year. If funds out perform this level, revoke.
We essentially printed money out of thin air to help financial crisis ( and loaded up system with more risk - necessary IMO but not good political selling point) why not here?
I don't think it does any good to squeeze these people for resource they don't have. Many will end up on public assistance.
Good article and not limited to left/right "issues"
