TATUS and the economics team just got off a real tense call with their counterparts preparing for the G-20 meeting. Timmy felt that he needed to play the "Bad Cop" on the call, particularly since many of the European nations have been refusing to play along with his and Big Guy's economic stimulus strategy to mortgage their next-generations' futures.
When the French economics minister pushed back on Timmy's demands that Germany increase stimulus spending, TATUS pulled his wild card out. "Okay, the U.S. would like to place on the G-20 agenda a session addressing the many tax havens that enable American citizens to hide their wealth off shore and not pay taxes."
The G-20 officials agreed. So now Big Guy has to sit through a session next week targeting the tax havens of Switzerland, the Cayman Islands, his Administration and Rep. Charles Rangel.
