Feb 14 - In a press release (http://www.gao.gov/press/citizensguide21408.pdf), US Comptroller General David M. Walker praises the GAO's Citizen's Guide (http://www.gao.gov/financial/fy2007financialreport.html) for "improving public understanding of the federal government’s true financial condition and fiscal challenges-both today and over the longer-term." He goes on to state "Unless the government makes fundamental changes in its budget, entitlement, discretionary spending and tax policies, and soon, the coming surge of spending on Social Security and Medicare will bring a fiscal tsunami of spending and debt that threatens to swamp our ship of state, damaging the U.S. economy. Policymakers must look to the future and face squarely the need for fundamental changes to a range of government programs, policies and activities. This is the best way to return our country to a more prudent and sustainable fiscal track.”

Looks like he was pressured to leave early.

Can't have government officials actually telling the truth about the state of our economy now can we?

The Citizen's Guide should be required reading for all before they elect a President this year.

How to make that go viral is the question.

I wonder how long that will stay on line, with Walker's departure?

This country is going down the tubes faster each year, or should I say each day?
