Obama admin under attack: Rand Paul files for key resignation
The Obama administration continues to come under heavy attack as financial troubles plague the nation more than two and a half years into the president’s term.
Now, at least one high-profile senator is taking action to try to push the U.S. treasury secretary out of his position.
“The economy is in death throes right now, and [Obama] can’t accept any blame or responsibility for it,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said tonight on “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. “I’m gonna introduce legislation tomorrow that will call for the resignation of Timothy Geithner.”
“The stock market has basically given a vote of no confidence to this president,” Paul continued. “It really says that everything they’re doing is not working. Everything has gotten worse. Unemployment’s gotten worse. Gas prices have doubled. The economy is growing, if at all, at a very anemic pace. We’re not gonna get out of this until we get a business-friendly administration.”
