    Geithner: "We Write 80 Million Checks A Month"

    "Just remember, this is the United States of America. We write 80 million checks a month. There are millions and millions of Americans that depend on those checks coming on time," Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told "FOX News Sunday."

    "Not just people that supply our military, but people who get Social Security benefits, Medicare [and] Medicaid benefits. And we can not put those payments at risk and we do not have the ability to limit the damage on them if Congress fails to act in time."

    And Timmy, don't you think that's part of why we're in debt beyond all reasonable measure of hope?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Nah, I'm gonna go with bloated military spending, a major recession reducing revenues, and overzealous tax cuts.

    I am of the opinion (and that's all it is -- an opinion) that Tim Geitheist is a liar, cheat and co-conspirator in Obama's Cloward-Piven subterfuge.

    No, not really. Mere social security probably is the lion share of that. And Social Security's problem is largely that past Presidents and Congresses have raided it for years replacing money with IOUs. True, it's a ponzi scheme, but if the trust fund was actually there, this wouldn't be anywhere near the problem it is.

    I suspect direct deposit/transfer is much higher then 80 million. Considering how many contractors the governmnent works with, Medicare/aid payments, military direct deposit, if I had to venture a guess, DD is probably at least two to three times as large as number of checks written.

    We were in debt beyond reasonable hope 2 years into Bush's term. For you to be calling about this now is ridiculously partisan....even for you

    Social security/medicare shouldn't have added a penny to our debt because there's a specific tax set aside to pay for it. Thanks to our very wise congress, it didn't work out that way. Instead, that money was spent to pay for all those other things I mentioned.

    Geitner is a tax-cheat and a chronic liar. He's a co-conspirator in Obama's Communist coup against America. Geitner should be imprisoned.
