It’s Time to Break the Succession of Bad Ideas! The New York Times Invites a Registered Nurse to Give Economic Advice to President-Elect Barack Obama
HOUSTON, November 6, 2008 – The New York Times invited registered nurse and entrepreneur Vickie L. Milazzo, RN, MSN, JD to write an article advising President-elect Obama about what he needs to do to restore a healthy economy.
Recognizing parallels between running the United States government and running a small business, nurse entrepreneur Milazzo advised President-elect Obama that the government needs to be run lean and clean. She further advised him to:
- “Act like an entrepreneur – not a politician.
- Start breaking the succession of bad ideas with the worst idea of all – the bloated, loophole-ridden tax code that is unintelligible to even the more expert tax preparers, the IRS itself and especially the small business owner.
- Budget for results – not for a bigger budget next year.
- Give credit back to the small businesses so they can focus on what they do best – create jobs, generate income and stimulate the economy.”
In conclusion, Milazzo reminded Mr. Obama that he has just four short years before his next performance evaluation – a luxury few entrepreneurs enjoy. Then the American people will decide whether or not he gets to keep his job as head of the most important business in the world.
