Tax Hike Out
The White House did a public smack down on Treasury Sec Geitner and Eco Advisor Summers.
I guess Obama is running for a second term... I can just hear him quoting President George Herbert Walker Bush (the elder):
"Read my lips. No new taxes."
You might not be old enough to remember, but that line pretty much sealed Bush the elder's fate, enabling the Clinton's to rise to power.
I guess the Department of Energy is safe, too...
Ah, but it was a nice thought.
