Not Another Geithner
We demand that the President's nominee for Secretary of the Treasury not be another Timothy Geithner. Appointing someone who had helped create a catastrophe to lead the clean-up has predictably failed. Geithner has served banks rather than supervising them, while doing nothing to help families facing foreclosure. Geithner's severe mishandling of the housing crisis has left our economy staggering.
No more catering to the 1%, no more austerity politics; we need a Treasury Secretary who believes in people, believes in investment and will fight for the high-road, high-wage economy we need to dig us out of this hole.
Tell President Obama to name a public servant rather than a Wall Street servant, and to do so now.
