Like the program, but dosen't he have more important things to do?
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner is in Philadelphia today, joining Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack and the president's wife Michelle Obama "to announce new details of the Healthy Food Financing Initiative," an urban grocery subsidy program backed by the Depts of Treasury, Agriculture, and Health & Human Services that plans to use $400 million a year in taxpayer money "to help bring grocery stores to underserved areas and help places such as convenience stores and bodegas carry healthier food options."
