Congressman DeFazio: "We May Have To Sacrifice Just Two More Jobs (Summers and Geithner) To Get Millions Back For Americans"

Congressman DeFazio said yesterday:

We think it is time, maybe, that we turn our focus to Main Street ...

Unfortunately, the President has an adviser from Wall Street, Larry Summers, and a Treasury Secretary from Wall Street, Timmy Geithner, who don't like that idea. They want to keep the TARP money either to continue to bail out Wall Street...or to pay down the deficit. That's absurd...

"[Obama] is being failed by his economic team ... We may have to sacrifice just two more jobs to get millions back for Americans.


  1. Dear President Obama, if we don't sacrifice those two jobs, then a third is going to be sacrificed in 2012, and I'd really hate to see the US governed by Palin/Beck. Please take this under advisement.

  2. They are not failing Obama so much. It is more about him needing to lead them. Not the other way around.

  3. Entrenched and ensconced with power, expect neither to go easy. This is the historic lesson of such times.

    And it is not merely Summers and Geithner who are standing on stilts in this gale.

    No one is safe. And I mean NO ONE.

  4. You forgot 1, Obama.

  5. Watch your back, Congressman. Godspeed.

  6. Two chances of that happening,slim and none.

  7. Mr. DeFazio, you are my congressman at last. I live in Oregon but support candidates in other states like ex-rep Cynthia McKinney. For a good personal profile on these and others like Rham go look at Learn where these guys came from and where there loyalties lie.

  8. Great posts as always, thank you for your work.


  9. Hey, Luke -- Of the few Congressmen worth keeping around Washington after a clean sweep, DeFazio, is one. I've had the pleasure of voting for him eight times now. And, in a rare move for me to send money to an out-of-state political race, I've supported Cynthia McKinney, a true American hero.

  10. they are all crooks, with many skeletons in their closet. That is why they can do no good.

    Trust no politicians. Those days are over.

  11. We should all vote for Cynthia McKinney for president in 2012. She was the Green party candidate in 2008 We got the wrong person in office now.

  12. Seriously? I've read several stories of Congressmen pointing the finger at Geithner. This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. It is not the Treasury Secretary that needs to be fired alone. Fire the entire federal government. I don't believe that many Americans are still under the illusioin that the Federal government is nothing more than organized crime looting the people and committing atrocities iwht our money and in our name. It is time to get out the pitch forks and torches, the tar and feathers. It is time that we honor our fore-fathers and implement the words of Thomas Jefferson. Replenish the tree of liberty.
