Obama Deficit Plan ‘Best Mix’ of Policy Choices, Geithner Says

Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama’s deficit-cutting plan represents “the best mix of policies” for promoting short-term economic growth and cutting the U.S. government’s long-term debt, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said.

“We think they’re good ideas, we think they’re good economics,” Geithner said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “We think they’re better for the economy than the alternatives and we’re going to try to get them done.”
