Tim Geithner May Not Want To Pack His Bags Just Yet

President Barack Obama, newly re- elected, now confronts two questions that he has been avoiding for more than a year: Who will replace Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and when…The timing of Geithner’s replacement depends on whether the White House can reach an agreement with the lame duck Congress on a deficit reduction plan to avoid triggering spending cuts and tax increases known as the fiscal cliff. If a deal can be reached before the Jan. 1 deadline, Geithner might leave as soon as it is completed. If the solution is left for the next Congress, Obama may ask Geithner to stay, either to work on a deal or to reassure financial markets about the U.S. government’s ability to trim the deficit.

    Sooo…. A bunch of highly intelligent, highly educated guys and gals are going to buy the Treasury Secretaries explanation for the fiscal cliff when they can easily see for themselves that Congress keeps demonstrating loudly and repeatedly that they are collectively dumber than a pile of bricks.

    Doubting things already.

    Thanks for the points you have provided here. Yet another thing I would like to say is that computer memory specifications generally go up along with other improvements in the engineering. For instance, as soon as new generations of processor chips are introduced to the market, there is usually a related increase in the size and style preferences of both the personal computer memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the program operated by simply these cpus will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technological know-how. http://www.obiwi.fr/ecrans/audiovisuel/96203-fair
