Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner testified to the House Budget Committee last Thursday that the Obama Administration had no answer to the nation's long-term budget problem. The article I saw that reported this little nugget also showed a White House chart that demonstrates that Obama and White House statements -- that Obama's budget bends the debt curve over -- are false. White House statements disproven by a White House chart.
Geithner took some offense, producing the following exchange.
GEITHNER: You could have taken [the chart] out [to the year] 3000 or to 4000. [Laughs]It's really looking like Barack Obama and his Administration are actively trying to destroy this country.
RYAN: Yeah, right. We cut it off at the end of the century because the economy, according to the CBO, shuts down in 2027 on this path.
