Barack Obama White House Told Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to Lie to American People About Social Security Adding to National Debt



In his memoir ‘Stress Test’ former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the Obama  White House wanted him to mislead and lie to Americans about the long term costs of Social Security on Sunday talk shows. SOUND FAMILIAR? According to Geithner, the White House communications director specifically told him not to say that Social Security contributes to the national deficit in an upcoming appearance on the Sunday morning talk shows, even though he believes it does, because it might inflame and anger the Democratic base.   What, say it isn’t so … the Obama Administration wanted their minions to lie to the American people?!?  ‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, signaling that we [Democrats] intended to protect Social Security. Lies, lies and more lies from the Obama administration that makes everything about politics.

However, before we give Geithner any medals for his truthfulness, maybe he would like to explain why he did not resign? It is a crime what this administration has perpetrated upon the American people. If a Republican presidency had been caught in this many lies and scandals, the MSM would have drummed them out of office.

The UK Daily Mail:

The White House wanted Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to lie on Sunday talk shows to downplay the part Social Security played in driving the deficit, it was revealed today.

Geithner writes in his memoir Stress Test, out today, that the White House communications director asked him to downplay the long term cost of Social Security spending to mollify the Democratic Party’s base.

‘I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute,’ he says.

‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.’

UREAL … How many more lies must the Obama administration be caught in before “We the People” disregard everything that they say?

      That statement would have been true prior to 1963 and LBJ’s “Great Society” program. That was when the federal government hi-jacked to SS funds and began to put IOUs into the fake Lock box set up for the them.

      Since then, SS has been used as a welfare fund to take care of people who contributed nothing to the fund. SS has become just another way for the federal government to steal from the people.
