Geithner: We will 'prevail' over banks

New York (CNNMoney) - Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner on Tuesday joined a chorus of Democratic officials hitting back at bank fees, saying the administration "will prevail" in the battle over banking reforms.

"There are no surprises, nothing strange about the fact that banks are resisting it - are pushing back," Geithner told CNN's Erin Burnett. "They are trying to weaken those reforms."

    Well, if there is anyone I would bet money on to 'prevail' in a financial showdown it would be a proud tax fraud practitioner.
