WASHINGTON (CNN)– Even as the Obama administration struggles to sell a massive economic stimulus plan, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is planning Monday to unveil a separate financial stability plan that could cost hundreds of billions of dollars more to buy up troubled assets from banks and more broadly deal with the credit crunch and foreclosure crisis, according to two senior administration officials.
The officials are billing the move as a major reform of the so-called TARP federal bailout program that was created last fall to try and stabilize the financial system, but has come under withering criticism across the political spectrum.
"It will be an overhaul of the whole program," one senior official vowed about the package being put together Geithner and other top economic advisers to the President.
Officials said the goals of the new plan will include bringing new transparency and accountability standards to the TARP program, keeping people in their existing homes, and increasing lending to consumers and small businesses.
