President Obama: Please Replace Timothy Geithner

To be delivered to President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

It is time to emulate FDR and put our government to work for us. Mr. President, "personnel is policy": appoint Joseph Stiglitz or Paul Krugman as Secretary of the Treasury and Robert Reich Secretary of Labor.
There are currently 242 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

Now that Obama is in his second term it is time for him to change course from shoring up the banks and Wall Street to listening to the Nobel Laureates. Many of us knew that the first mistake President Obama made was appointing Geithner and Summers. We have stayed faithful to him despite his vicissitudes. Now for the people's sake he should let Geithner, et al., go and appoint Joseph Stiglitz or Paul Krugman as his Secretary of the Treasury. We would also suggest Robert Reich, who's been brutally but truthfully critical of Obama's policies, but loyal to the people and the Democrats. It is time to emulate FDR and put the government to work for its citizens.
