I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a
feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
name to mine? If this petition gets 5,000 signatures by October 31, 2011,
the White House will review it and respond!
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.
You can view and sign the petition here:
Here's some more information about this petition:
Fire Geithner Now!
It is time for Treasury Secretary Geithner to step down. His policy ideas are
counter to the ideas the President has outlined to get the economy back on
track. Mr. Geithner has said that Europe shouldn't pursue a STET tax,
which means we in the U.S. never will either. It is quite clear that Wall
Street's abuse of its influence in our government needs to be curbed.
Re-instituting the STET tax will do just that.
Mr. Geithner is a creature of Wall Street and doesn't see things from
the perspective of Main Street. The American people are waking up to the
crimes being committed against them by Wall Street as evidenced by the Occupy
Wall Street protests going on now. Mr. Obama should join the American people
and this movement. Having Mr. Geithner step down would be a good first step.
