STIRRINGS FOR A RETURN TO FISCAL CONSERVATISM
The office of Comptroller-General of the United States
, who heads the GAO and serves for a 15 year term, is hardly a political powerhouse inside the beltway and, generally, these appointees labor in bureaucratic obscurity. The current Comptroller-General, David M. Walker
, a Clinton-appointee, has been making the rounds giving speeches calling for both transformation of archaic governmental practices and a return to fiscal conservatism
in national policy, yet with more optimism than is typical for traditional "green eyeshade" worldviews.
