Tim Geithner: The absent-minded tax collector
Remember when Joe Biden said it was patriotic to pay higher taxes. Well, by that definition of patriotism, Barack Obama has nominated the most un-patriotic person in America to see to it that YOU pay YOUR taxes. That's right, Tim Geithner is Obama's nominee for the Treasury Department, which means he's the one who heads the IRS. You know, the government agency that makes sure that you pay your taxes every year on April 15 or you go to jail. Tim Geithner doesn't feel that it's important at all that he pay his taxes, but he's going to head the organization that makes damn well sure that you do! His excuse for not paying $43,000 in personal income taxes for 4 years. He simply forgot. So lets see folks. We're in the most serious economic crises since the 1930's and now we have the absent-minded treasury secretary to leads us. Doesn't that give you a nice warm and fuzzy feeling inside?
