Do as I say...Not as I did!
Timothy Geithner won confirmation on Monday as President Obama's treasury secretary despite not having paid a significant amount of taxes (over $30,000) that was due the IRS. If I had done that I would have had liens on anything I owned, partially owned or possessed and would have probably been in federal prison for tax evasion. How ironic it is that now he will be the IRS's boss. Will he have a sign on his desk saying "Do as I say...Not as I do (did)!" Will the IRS Agent who pursued those due taxes still have a job and if he or she does will it be on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. From my point of view this was not a good choice for an already sick economy. I can only envision the jokes around the Treasury Department's offices....smirk...wink...smirk.
