WPRI Annual Dinner

Tuesday October 28, 2014

Featuring Guest Speaker Former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker

The “Paul Revere” of America’s Fiscal Crisis

Author, subject of the acclaimed film I.O.U.S.A., and founder of the Comeback America Initiative, Walker is the nation’s most authoritative voice on the long-term repercussions of our ever-growing, $70 trillion-plus national debt.  He wonders what the founders of this country would say and warns that modern problems – including fiscal irresponsibility and the lack of political civility – are eerily similar to what precipitated the fall of the Roman Republic.
