Kerr Letter - 09/06/09

We don't need a pep talk next week from the president, nor do we need Congress spending all its time on health care reform. What we need is the president and Congress focused on, and spending their combined energies on job creation!

People are still losing their jobs and their homes. With jobs, the economy improves, and with jobs, people keep their homes and their health care benefits.

Only in an improved economy, with people back to work and paying taxes, can any health care reform realistically take place. To pretend otherwise is sheer folly. As Leo Burnett once said, "Living in a fool's paradise is great fun until the rent comes due."
