Sessions: Lew Must 'Never' Be Treasury Secretary

The Hill reports:
The top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee will oppose Jack Lew's nomination to be Treasury secretary.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has prepared a statement saying "Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury." [...] The senator says Lew misrepresented Obama's 2012 budget by claiming that it did not add to the debt.

"His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies," according to the Sessions' statement, which was obtained by The Hill in advance.

  1. A political hack lies to Congress? I guess it takes a liar to detect another liar.
