Those citizens who care enough about America’s future to attend one of the tour’s programs will be privy to a well-constructed and vivid presentation acquainting them as never before with the hard-to-grasp size of the federal government's true debt burden. They also will see just how quickly that debt burden is growing, and will come to understand what will happen if we do not begin taking tangible steps to rein it in.
Most importantly, perhaps, those taking the time to listen to the presentation will learn of ways to begin solving the problem. Such solutions might include, for example, “tough love” measures that would force the Congress to pass budgets and required spending bills, on pain of not being paid their salaries if they continue to shirk this fundamental responsibility.
Walker truly does know what he will be talking about on the $10 Million Per Minute bus tour. His knowledge is gleaned from a decade serving in the top echelons of the federal government, as Comptroller General and head of the Government Accountability Office; as well as from many years as a top-notch accountant in private industry. Walker’s federal service included positions under presidents of both major political parties; and this latest initiative is backed by a wide cadre of experts and concerned citizens, including former presidential candidate Ross Perot.
Unburdened by any partisan baggage, and buttressed by impeccable substantive credentials, Walker is able to go where candidates from both major parties are loath to tread. His message is one vital to America’s very survival as a top-tier world power; and American citizens everywhere should demand their preferred candidate for President commit to it as the price for their vote on November 6th.
