The most important presentation in Wisconsin this year


Really, Kevin?

Really.

David Walker appears Monday afternoon at the Waukesha County Technical College in Pewaukee.

Who’s David Walker, you ask?

David Walker is the former US comptroller general and he’s bring his “$10 Million a Minute” tour to Pewaukee. What’s the meaning of $10 million a minute? Walker wrote a piece for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Crossroads section today. Here’s an excerpt from the column:

If there was ever a time when we needed leadership, not partisanship, from our candidates and elected officials, it is now. The fiscal hole we have dug for ourselves is far worse than the $16 trillion in national debt that we often hear about. The truer measure of our debt obligations includes the unfunded promises and liabilities from social insurance programs such as Social Security and Medicare and various retirement programs - and that figure is a whopping $70 trillion. And it is increasing by $10 million a minute.”

Walker categorizes that scenario as a “moral travesty.”

I blogged about Walker four years ago when he began his crusade to inform and warn the taxpaying public that a fiscal disaster was at hand. If you can’t attend Walker’s appearance, I strongly urge that you take the 11 minutes to watch what Walker had to say on “60 Minutes.” The video is on my 2008 blog.

11 minutes. That’s another $110 million.
