Cutting the fat for National Wear Red Day

February 4, 2011

Today is “National Wear Red Day,” sponsored by the American Heart Association. The campaign encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, the number one cause of death among women.

Americans know that improving heart health often starts with cutting the fat. But that’s just a first step; achieving long-term heart health requires a consistent regimen of moderation, exercise and other healthy behaviors. For many, this is a big change, and difficult transition. But think about the alternative… In the end, it is always worth the effort.

Improving our nation’s fiscal health is no different – the first step is cutting the fat. But that’s just a first step; achieving long-term budgetary health requires a consistent regimen of fiscal discipline. Yep, for many in Washington, this will be a big change and difficult transition. But think about the alternative…(you’ve had a glimpse). In the end, it will be well worth the effort.

So have a heart, Washington, cut the fat. Then make the big changes necessary for our nation’s long-term health.
