It could very well be the most critical issue facing our country.
David Walker, comptroller general of the U.S. says we are suffering from a fiscal cancer that could have catastrophic consequences.
Walker has been taking his message on the road in what he calls a Fiscal Wake-Up Tour that comes to Milwaukee June 30th. One of the guest speakers will be Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan who has been getting national attention for his roadmap to address our long-term fiscal challenges.
The Fiscal Wake-Up Tour will be held on Monday, June 30, 2008 from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM at Discover World at Pier Wisconsin, 500 N. Harbor Drive. The tour is open to the public, but advanced RSVP is recommended. Contact Debra Jordan at (414) 287-4127 or by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
