This month's job numbers are a sign that we've begun to put the brakes on this recession, and that the worst may be behind us. But we must do more than rescue our economy from this immediate4 crisis. We must rebuild it stronger than before.
We must lay a new foundation for future growth and prosperity and a key pillar of a new foundation is health insurance reform. Reform that we are now closer to achieving than ever before.
