Peterson Foundation's Walker: "We used to have debtors prisons, now bankruptcy's no taint"
From the June 11 edition of CNBC's Squawk Box:
WALKER: The fact of the matter is we have to change how we do things. We are on an imprudent and unsustainable path in a number of ways. You talk about debtors prisons, we used to have debtors prisons, now bankruptcy's no taint. Bankruptcy's an exit strategy. Our society and our culture have changed. We need to get back to opportunity and move away from entitlement. We need to be able to provide reasonable risk but we need to hold people accountable when they do imprudent things. It's pretty fundamental.
