The Middle Class Task Force?

Yup, there is one.

And Treasury Secretary Geithner is part of it.

This morning, Secretary Geithner will attend the President's Daily Economic Briefing at the White House.

Later, Secretary Geithner will join the President and the Vice President at a meeting of the Middle Class Task Force at the White House. Accordng to the Treasury, "they will discuss the administration's commitment to investing in our middle class families who have been struggling in this economy." As per usual, exactly where this "investment" money will come from is not clear.

  1. Wenzel,

    The wealthy, upper classes of this country must feel really underserved and unrepresented in America these days... politicians regularly proclaim their strict adherence to saviorism for the lower and middle classes while simultaneously denying they have any good-will whatsoever toward the parasitic upper class.

    Do the rich do ANYTHING beneficial for society, from the politicians' point of view? And isn't there great risk for those middle class folks who are aspirational and have the talents and opportunities to graduate into the upper class, that they might then lose their political sponsorship and be targeted for their evil profiteering and success?

    We must be careful these days, lest we become rich ourselves.

    If I were upper class, I'd feel positively un-American!
