    When Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew testified in the Senate Finance Committee on Thursday, urging Congress to enact a new law allowing the administration to increase the federal debt, his description of how the Treasury handles that debt mirrored the Securities and Exchange Commission’s definition of a Ponzi Scheme. “A Ponzi scheme is an investment fraud that involves the payment of purported returns to existing investors from funds contributed by new investors,” says the Securities and Exchange Commission. … On Thursday, Lew candidly told the Finance Committee that the U.S. Treasury will not be able to pay off current government debt-holders...

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said Wednesday that there was "no evidence" a political appointee was involved in the IRS' targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status. In his first network broadcast interview since taking office in February, Lew told "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley that an investigation has shown "there has been no evidence of any political decision making in the IRS." Asked whether any political appointee had oversight of the decisions that were made around the tea party applications, Lew said, "There has been no evidence of anyone in a political position having been involved in any...

    At a Tuesday press conference, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) politicized the Boston Marathon bombings by blaming Monday's tragedy on the sequester, saying the bombings were "proof" that some of the sequester cuts were "irrational." Hoyer is the House Minority Whip and second-ranking Democrat in leadership.

    I can't believe what Steny Hoyer said concerning the sequester cuts. But, according to Bob Woodward, the sequester cut was Jacob Lew's (Obam's choice to be Treasury secretary) idea, and the idea was jumped on by Obama.
  • Jacob Lew Received a Million Dollars in Cash From Citigroup During Bailout

    The Washington Times ^ | Jim McElhatton
    Jacob J. Lew, President Obama’s presumed choice to lead the Treasury Department, has close ties to Wall Street, receiving more than $900,000 in bonus cash from a division of Citigroup just as the company was getting bailed out by U.S. taxpayers. The arrangement, previously reported by The Washington Times, received little scrutiny after Mr. Lew joined the Obama administration in 2009, first as a deputy in the State Department and later as Mr. Obama’s budget chief and chief of staff. Mr. Obama has criticized hefty bonuses paid out to Wall Street executives. In his State of the Union address last...

    U.S. President Barack Obama is keeping a trend alive with new White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew. You see, Lew has something in common with his predecessors: He spent years raking in millions on Wall Street. Like William M. Daley, who on Monday resigned from his post as chief of staff, and Rahm Emanuel, who vacated the position in 2009 to successfully run for mayor of Chicago, Lew has strong ties to the financial sector. Until 2009 he was the chief operating officer of Citigroup Alternative Investments, which made money betting against the housing market with controversial credit default...

    Top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa said in a May 9 letter that if a top Obama aide again declines to testify on a draft executive order requiring political disclosure from government contractors, Issa will be “required to consider the use of compulsory process” – a congressional subpoena.If Issa subpoenas OMB director Jacob Lew to testify about the draft order, which Republicans warn could allow the administration to politicize the government contracting process, it would be the first time the GOP has subpoenaed the Obama White House since they obtained the authority in taking over the House in January.A...

    The Obama administration’s new nominee for OMB director, Jacob Lew, had some interesting comments about financial regulation reform back in 2009. Watch: "Its important that other nations of the world do the same thing. They’d have to be similar rules around the world or else there will be a natural tendency for institutions to look for the places they would not have to comply with tougher standards." Right. The nominee to run Obama’s budget office is openly admitting that if the rest of the world doesn’t adopt equally unfriendly business practices as those in the liberal’s financial regulation reform bill...
