Fifth study group will look at the US GOV’T DEFICIT LADEN BUDGET - The inconvenient truth: We are bankrupting our children and denying them a better future. We will examine... how do we get our federal government's financial house in order when entitlements and debt service are on automatic pilot with costs continually rising, and defense spending is such a large part of the budget?
Guest Speaker: David Walker,
U.S. Comptroller General 1998-2008
