Harry Reid Would Not Confirm Mitt Romney As A Dog Catcher, Secretary Of Treasurer, Maybe

July 12, 2012

President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies have launched a sustained attack this week over Mitt Romney’s refusal to release additional tax returns, suggesting the Republican nominee is trying to “hide” something from the American people.

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested Romney would never win Senate confirmation for a Cabinet position because “he won’t show anybody his tax returns.” But as Politico reports, Reid took that criticism a step further on Thursday, saying that Romney couldn’t even win confirmation to be a “dog catcher.”

“He not only couldn’t be confirmed as a Cabinet secretary, he couldn’t be confirmed as a dog catcher, because a dog catcher … you’re at least going to want to look at his income tax returns,” Reid said.

Harry Reid will not confirm Mitt Romney as a dog catcher. Tax cheat maybe..

Tim Barney Fite Geithner Wants To Raise Taxes On Small Business, One Bullet Wonder

June 24, 2011

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the House Small Business Committee on Wednesday that the Obama administration believes taxes on small business must increase so the administration does not have to “shrink the overall size of government programs.”

The administration’s plan to raise the tax rate on small businesses is part of its plan to raise taxes on all Americans who make more than $250,000 per year—including businesses that file taxes the same way individuals and families do.

“We’re not doing it because we want to do it, we’re doing it because we see no alternative to a balanced approach to reduce our fiscal deficits,” said Geithner.

US Taxpayer Plays “Skin In The Game” New Global Edition

August 12, 2010

  WASHINGTON (AP) – The $700 billion U.S. bailout program launched in response to the global economic meltdown had a far greater impact overseas than other countries’ financial rescue plans did on the U.S., according to a new report from a congressional watchdog.

Billions of dollars in U.S. rescue funds wound up in big banks in France, Germany and other nations. That was probably inevitable because of the structure of the Treasury Department’s program, the Congressional Oversight Panel says in a new report issued Thursday.

The U.S. program aimed to stabilize the financial system by injecting money into as many banks as possible, including those with substantial operations overseas. Most other countries, by contrast, focused their efforts more narrowly on banks in their nations that usually lacked major U.S. operations.

But the report says that if the U.S. had gotten more data on which foreign banks would benefit the most, the government might have been able to ask those countries to share some of the cost.

“There were no data about where this money was going,” panel chair Elizabeth Warren said in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday. “The American people have a right to know where the money went.”

Poorly conceived and poorly executed  rescue package putting taxpayers at  risk on a  global scale….. Geithner scared of Elizabeth Warren….

Geithner: “I Never Had A Real Job”

We at the Eye View now understand that since he never had a real job he felt the need not to pay real taxes. Also never having had a real job he would not be able to identify a real job even if it bit him on his Ivy League ass…. The numbers add up..
