Geithner: Sorry For "Careless Mistakes", Treasury Secretary-Designate Tells Congress Members He Should Have "Been More Careful" With His Taxes - CBS News

(CBS/AP) Treasury Secretary-designate Tim Geithner said Wednesday he was careless in failing to pay $34,000 in U.S. taxes earlier this decade and apologized to Congress.

He told the Senate Finance Committee he was sorry that his past transgressions were now an issue in his confirmation at a time of deepening economic crisis. He urged Congress to act quickly and forcefully to deal with the crisis. A top administration priority is to foster economic recovery and "get credit flowing again," Geithner testified.

As to his failure to pay the payroll taxes from 2001 to 2004 while he worked for the International Monetary Fund, Geithner said: "These were careless mistakes. They were avoidable mistakes."

"But they were unintentional," he said. "I should have been more careful."

Why would he? He wasn't the decider in the last 8 years; you should ask the "misunderestimated" one

Too funny. It's Barack's first day in office and already TNT is screaming "Where's that change we were promised" and Vonny is demanding an apology.

Hey Vonny.... pretend you're a Palestinian and we're Israel. Then you'll have an idea what's you're going to get

I don't think he will last an hour of playing Palestinian, the humiliation at a check point alone will do him in
