Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Letter to America
August 15, 2011Dear Fellow Concerned Americans:Our country is better than this.Over the last few weeks and months, our national elected officials from both parties have failedto lead. They have chosen to put partisan and ideological purity over the well-being of thepeople. They have undermined the full faith and credit of the United States. They have stirred upfears about our economic prospects without doing anything to truly address those fears. Theyhave spent a resource even more precious than the dollar: our collective confidence in each other,in the future, and in our ability to solve problems together.As leaders in business, we have watched all this unfold, first with frustration and then withdismay. Like so many of our employees and customers, we are gravely concerned about thecurrent situation. Today, with both humility and urgency, we propose to do something about it.First, we aim to push our elected leaders to face the nation's long-term fiscal challenges withcivility, honesty, and a willingness to sacrifice their own re-election. This means not kicking thecan anymore. It means reaching a deal on debt, revenue, and spending long before the deadlinearrives this fall. It means considering all options, from entitlement programs to taxes.
