Absolutely nothing at the Treasury is fucked. Understand? Nothing is fucked. And, you know what? Screw you for asking too.

"We have the resources to move forward implementing all aspects of our Financial Stability Plan," Geithner said in a letter to the panel overseeing the bailout.

In fact, with the implementation of all aspects of the Financial Stability Plan using the resources allocated to move forward that we have, we will be leveraging said resources according to per usual best practices unless unforeseen fluid developments materialize and challenge liquidity. (i.e. Greenspan he's not).

Treasury doesn't need more bailout money: Geithner


Greece Doesn't Need You!

Greece doesn't need any of you! Greece's finance minister on Thursday denied a report citing the country's representative to the IMF as saying Athens would need a third bailout package. The euro weakened against the dollar on the report, which was later also denied by the official quoted in the article and came as international inspectors are mulling handing over the next tranche of Greece's second aid package. "The country's positions are formulated by the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister," Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras told Reuters in response to the Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal report. The article quoted Thanos Catsambas, Alternate Executive Director at the IMF Executive Board representing Greece, as saying the country would need a third bailout from European creditors. It also reported Greece could not bridge a funding gap and had met only 22 percent of targets for the second bailout...Catsambas issued a statement saying the article included "at least three important inaccuracies".
