Debt Increased More Under Geithner Than Under Any Treasury Secretary in U.S. History

Editor’s Note: Few leaders in Washington have had as much of a direct role in attempting to control the U.S. economy and the financial markets than U.S. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner. This week, there have been growing reports of Geithner’s desire to exit the Treasury. He has already moved his family out of the Beltway and back to New York. And who can blame him? He is at the epicenter of the worst economic crisis in recent memory and the pressure must be immense. And as we head into 2012 (think election year), there is little doubt that the White House will expect him to maintain his economic sleight of hand. The statistics below are just the warm-up as we head into 2012… And Geithner knows this more than anyone.

As long as people in Washington are salivating over my retirement accounts, I will not contribute one more dime! I would rather buy silver, gold, and other commodities. I would rather be in control of my own retirement. The last thing I want to do is to depend on the government for anything.
