David Walker and Alice Rivlin Do The Harlem Shake

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Remember that video of 81-year-old Alan Simpson dancing to \”Gangnam Style\” a few weeks back to spotlight the growth of the national debt?

Well, the same folks are back with a new video featuring former U.S. Comptroller General (and current Bridgeport resident) David Walker and former White House budget director Alice Rivlin sort of dancing to the \”Harlem Shake.\”

Rivlin, born in 1931, and Walker, born in 1951, are part of the Fix the Debt campaign, a non-partisan effort to focus public attention on the nation\’s $16.4 trillion debt.

Both the \”Gangnam Style\” and \”Harlem Shakes\” videos are part of the group\’s outreach to people in their teens and 20s.
