Here's your chance to give Geithner your To-Do list 

So, you say you just read something about TARP on a blog or heard it on a Talk Radio program that made your blood boil? Or you had a incredible brainstorm while driving to work this morning on how to make the Treasury Department work better? Maybe you just want to let Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner know what you think of the job he is doing.

Whatever your desire, the Treasury Department has now put up a web site under the White House's Open Government initiative that is designed to give anybody and everybody with access to the Internet an opportunity to submit suggestions, criticisms, outraged protests, or even constructive ideas.

Not only can you submit your own, you can also read those submitted by others and vote them up or down. Those getting the most votes are more likely to be heeded, so expect this web site to soon become a political football

But that doesn't mean it can't be a useful tool in the transpartisan effort to improve transparency and accountability in government at all levels. Check it out here and give it a try. And don't forget, Geithner works for you, not the other way around.
