Timothy Geithner didn't pay all of his taxes. He is Obama's pick to head the Treasury Department, to lead the nation's economic crisis rescue, and to be in charge of all of our money.
Geithner failed to pay $34,000 between 2001 and 2004. Take heart, however, it wasn't intentional. Oooooo, I feel better already.
WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama's choice to run the Treasury Department and lead the nation's economic rescue disclosed publicly Tuesday that he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes from 2001 to 2004, a last-minute complication that Senate Democrats tried to brush aside as a minor bump on an otherwise smooth path to confirmation.Joe the Plumber (R) didn't pay $2,800 and gets crucified as well as fired from his job. Timothy Geithner (D and scum sucking reprobate tax dodger), didn't pay $34,000 and gets appointed Secretary of the Treasury. Geithner's faux pas was an honest mistake unlike Joe's mistake which was dishonest. We know that because Tim is White Collar and Joe is Blue Collar. Tim says he's paid most of the back taxes unlike Joe who paid all of it. Where's the fairness doctrine when you really need one?
Timothy Geithner paid most of the past-due taxes days before Obama announced his choice in November, according to materials released by the Senate Finance Committee. He had paid the remainder of the taxes in 2006, after the IRS sent him a bill.
"These errors were not intentional; they were honest mistakes," Baucus said after he and other committee members met with Geithner behind closed doors on Tuesday.
What's that, Lassie? Timmy has fallen down a well and can't get out! Maybe it would be best to leave Timmy down the well this time.
