Clinton, Bush GAO director: Federal government is 'too big'

The former comptroller general for Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush said Wednesday that the nation's huge national debt is a sign that the U.S. has strayed far from the original reasons the country was founded.
"From a broader perspective, the United States has strayed from many of the key principles and values that it was founded on and which made us great," former Comptroller General David Walker told a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee in prepared remarks.
"The federal government has also grown too big, promised too much, and needs to enact a variety of reforms in order to help create a better future for our country and its citizens," he said.
