Geithner: Obama to fight international tax dodgers

So, is he going to start with himself and Obama’s Cabinet?

Really?  Do these two clowns realize how silly they sound?  The man that the Dems said was the ONLY person who could run Treasury and direct us out of this financial mess, this super-bright who was felled by Turbo-Tax, who is the head of IRS but is a tax cheat himself, actually had the chutzpah to say that with a straight face?

Oh please….they are now into Keystone Kops territory.

President Barack Obama’s Treasury secretary says the administration will unveil a series of rules and measures in the coming months to limit the ability of international companies to avoid U.S. taxes.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday that Obama will propose legislation to limit U.S. companies’ ability to shelter foreign earnings from taxation in the U.S. He also said the administration will try to limit wealthy Americans’ ability to use tax havens to avoid taxation.

Why not?  Obama has already declared a tax war on anyone that gets a paycheck.  US Companies already are the highest taxed in the world.  Avoid?  This is, rather, using legal loopholes for the most part and part of reciprocal agreements with other companies.

Or is this more of that "paying higher taxes is patriotic" nonsense?  If so, do we get to judge Obama and his nominee after nominee after nominee as unpatriotic?

This is not about fiscal sanity anymore – Obama wants his idea of economic  justice and equality as soon as possible.

Problem is, he’s like my kids playing video games and their characters die – he wants us to die financially and believes that there is a magic Reset button that starts us all over at the same level:

At $0 each

Oh, except for one entity – the Government.

Where is John Galt?
