Must See TV: C-SPAN's coverage of the White House Conference of Aging

C-SPAN has put up the video (uses Real Player) of their coverage of the December 12, 2005 White House Conference on Aging.

About 53 minutes into the video (you can skip into it using the Real Player locator) is a sobering presentation on our nation's future finances by David Walker, Comptroller General of the United States. (Here's a list of all of his recent presentations from the GAO web site.)

Mr. Walker focuses in on the nation's debt and makes one statement that the audience shows strong agreement with. He essentialy echoes the Porkopolis pledge; chastising legislators that vote on a piece of legislation before they actually read it.
