Noted Tax Cheat: “If I Bankrupt Us It’s Your Fault”

Happy Tax Day! To celebrate, here’s some Enlightened Wisdom from Noted Tax Cheat Tim Geithner, who helpfully explains to you rubes taxpayers that if he bounces a check it’s your fault

Treasury Secretary and Noted Tax Cheat Timothy Geithner on Thursday told Republican lawmakers that they would shoulder the blame if the country got too close to defaulting on its debt and roiled markets worldwide by not approving a debt limit increase.

In yet another warning about the perils of not allowing the U.S. to borrow more to fund spending already approved by Congress, Noted Tax Cheat Geithner said it would be deeply irresponsible for lawmakers to use debt limit negotiations for political gains as that is traditionally the bailiwick of the President.

…”(Lawmakers) will say there’s leverage in it, we can advance it. But that would be deeply irresponsible and they will own the risk, and we’re trying very hard to get the Chinese to own our risk” Noted Tax Cheat Geithner said. (edited for clarity)
