#1 Tim Geithner: White House wanted me to lie about Social Security by Eglman 12.05.2014 10:13


I guess former Treasury Dept. Secretary Geithner wants to sell his new book so he decided to put some truth it in, truth that surprises and shocks none of us:

“I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute. Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.”

Unless Geithner, as a former insider, is willing to expose Obama for what he really is, then I’m not really interested in his book.
