The Hill reports:
A Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) member said there's “growing consensus” among liberals that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner should step down.
Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) said Wednesday that he and other liberal House members are becoming increasingly tired of Obama administration economic policies that they say are too focused on maintaining the stability of Wall Street firms and largely ignore “Main Street.”
DeFazio’s sentiment was echoed by Republican Rep. Kevin Brady, who during a Joint Economic Committee hearing told Geithner:
Mr. Secretary, the public has lost all confidence in your ability to do the job. Conservatives agree, Democrats agree that it really is time for a fresh start, and I would urge you to consider it.
Geithner, get ready. The bus may be coming.
