Jeremy Kolassa found the telling detail from Tim Geithner’s recent congressional testimony:
Timothy Geithner, appearing before Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and the House Budget Committee, had an absolutely fantastic line that we should keep for the ages:
Allow me to focus on that last part by copying the blockquote from Guy Benson’s piece from Townhall:
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, speaking on behalf of the Obama White House, to Rep. Paul Ryan: “You are right to say we’re not coming before you today to say ‘we have a definitive solution to that long term problem.’ What we do know is, we don’t like yours.”
You hear that? They have no plan, but they don’t like “yours” (being the GOP’s.)
Where are the adults in the room right now? We have the Democrats who have failed to pass a budget in the Senate for over three years and an Administration that is not even pretending to take care of the problems the country faces and only says “We don’t like your plan.”
Now who is being the “obstructionist party?”
Don’t confuse them with facts, Jeremy.
