Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Honorable David M. Walker.

Another senior Democrat leader has come out on the need for President Joe Biden to get out of the Presidential race.
The Hon. David Walker, the former Comptroller General of the US who was appointed by Bill Clinton, stated on the nationally syndicated Price of Business show with Kevin Price that President Biden is no longer physically or mentally capable of serving beyond this term. He said it is “unacceptable” for Biden to remain on the ticket. He needs to finish his term and move on. The Price of Business is one of the longest continuously running business shows in the country, having been on the air since 2001. Price is a multi-award winning broadcast journalist, author, and columnist.
During the conversation Walker also noted the very poor quality of the debate between Biden and Trump on the most important issues facing the country.
According to the Government Accounting Office: “The Comptroller General of the United States heads the Government Accountability Office (GAO), an agency within the legislative branch of the federal government. The Comptroller General is appointed by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the Senate. When a vacancy occurs in the office of the Comptroller General, the Congress establishes a bipartisan, bicameral commission to recommend individuals to the President. The Comptroller General’s term of office is set statutorily at 15 years and he is not eligible for reappointment.”

Dave is a nationally and internationally recognized fiscal responsibility, government transformation/ accountability, and retirement security expert. He is a non-practicing CPA with over 40 years of executive level experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors, including heading three federal agencies (two ERISA agencies), two non-profits, and leading a global service line for Arthur Andersen LLP. His most recent full-time federal position was as the seventh Comptroller General of the United States and CEO of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) for almost 10 years. This was one of his three Presidential appointments by Presidents from both political parties, with unanimous Senate confirmation each time. Dave also served as one of two Public Trustees for Social Security and Medicare from 1990-1995. 


Most recently, Dave served as the Distinguished Visiting Professor and Crowe Chair at the U.S. Naval Academy where he taught the Economics of National Security. He currently serves on a number of government and non-profit Boards and Advisory Committees, including the Defense Business Board, the Federal Fiscal Sustainability Foundation, and as a National Co-Founder of No Labels. 


Dave is also a periodic speaker, writer and media commentator. He has authored four books, the latest is entitled “America in 2040: Still a Superpower (A Pathway to Success)” published by AuthorHouse in October of 2020 and updated in February 2022. His most recent previous book was entitled “Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility“ (2010), which achieved National Bestseller status.
