Can You Cheat Geithner's Bank Plan? I indicated earlier that there's been some debate about this question.

Geithner Passes His Own Test The Washington memoir of a recently retired or ousted Cabinet figure usually can be counted on to have a few defining characteristics.

Geithner: ‘How Well You Do in Life . . . Depends Too Much on the Color of Your Skin’ Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday said how well one does in life “depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is.” “How well you do in life today, how good your education is ... 05/20/2014 - 1:00 pm | View Link
Timothy Geithner Is Key To IRS Scandal Of course, being told about an investigation isn’t the same as being told about the Miller Memo. Odd, though, how Geithner’s name just keeps not coming up. “He wasn’t there again today / O how I wish he’d go away…” Miller and Shulman testify ... 05/17/2013 - 1:00 pm | View Link

The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee says former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has volunteered to speak with the panel as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election.
California Sen. Kamala Harris and Washington Sen. Patty Murray both said that they believe the Denver-based appeals court judge has ruled too often against workers and in favor of corporations.
Murray said she also is opposing Gorsuch because of "chaos" in President Donald Trump's administration, pointing to his immigration and travel ban blocked by federal courts and an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's connections with Russia.
Harris and Murray join several other Democratic colleagues who have said they will vote against Gorsuch, including five Democrats who announced their opposition Thursday.
President Donald Trump says "it's a great day for American jobs" after his administration issued a permit to build the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline.
The decision caps a years-long fight between environmental groups and energy industry advocates over the pipeline's fate.
Trump has repeatedly mentioned Egypt as one of the Muslim-majority allies that the U.
In a gamble with monumental political stakes, Republicans set course for a climactic House vote on their health care overhaul after President Donald Trump claimed he was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and determined to pursue the rest of his agenda, win or lose.
 they seemed to be calculating that at crunch time, enough dissidents would decide against sabotaging the bill, Trump's young presidency and the House GOP leadership's ability to set the agenda, with a single, crushing defeat.
The GOP bill eliminates the Obama statute's unpopular fines on those who do not obtain coverage and the often generous subsidies for those who purchase insurance.
In a bid to coax support from conservatives, House leaders proposed a fresh amendment — to be voted on Friday — repealing Obama's requirement that insurers cover 10 specified services like maternity and mental health care.
Medical associations, consumer groups and hospitals are opposed or voicing misgivings, and some Republican governors say the bill cuts Medicaid too deeply and would leave many low-income people uncovered.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said changes Republican leaders had proposed before Thursday to win votes had cut the legislation's deficit reduction by more than half, to $150 billion over the next decade.
Obama's law increased coverage through subsidized private insurance for people who don't have access to workplace plans, and a state option to expand Medicaid for low-income residents.
