The government is not a business, it has one way to get money and that way is to reach in your pocket!
Geithner is one of the crooks that pulled off the greatest heist in the history of the world by taking your money and mine and giving it to bankers, many of them overseas, and CEO’s, and unions, through the TARP, Stimulus bills, Bailouts, and Quantitative Easings (QE1 & 2).
Revenue increases is code for tax increases. When the government spends a dollar they must get that dollar from you and me through taxes.
What Geithner needs is prison time, him and all his gang of thieves!

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Tuesday that a deal to raise the legal debt limit, which he expects to be completed in the next few weeks, will be only a short-term “down payment” on solving the nation’s debt problem, and that it would be “irresponsible” to reduce the massive federal deficit anticipated over the next ten years with spending cuts alone.
What is needed, he said, is a longer-term deal on a “balanced framework” that includes “revenue increases through tax reform.”
Geithner said negotiations with Congress over such a longer-term plan could be completed within the “next few months.”
In the vernacular, when the government changes the tax laws to extract more tax revenue from citizens it is called a tax increase.
