Connie Mack Repeats Call for Tim Geithner's Resignation

Having been the first member of Congress to call for U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithners resignation back in March 2009, U.S. Rep. Connie Mack joined with U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner in repeating the call.

I agree with Leader Boehner that Secretary Geithner should step down, said Mack. From his questionable role in the AIG bailout to his mishandling of our economic recovery, Secretary Geithner has been a disappointment from the start.

The American people have lost confidence in the Obama administrations ability to jump-start our economy, added Mack. The ongoing actions and initiatives pushed by Secretary Geithner and others in the administration and Congress including a failed stimulus plan, endless bailouts for the financial and auto sectors, far-reaching financial regulatory reforms, and their failure to extend the expiring tax cuts raise serious questions about the role of government in our lives.

Our nation can ill-afford more government intrusion into the free market and our freedoms, said Mack. Our economic recovery starts first and foremost with cutting taxes, reducing spending, and allowing the free market and not the government to create jobs. And until Secretary Geithner can understand this, he should step down as the architect of our economic recovery.
