    Harriet Tubman, the sword-wielding, gun-toting spy and freedom fighter who led dozens of slaves to freedom in the north after escaping from slavery herself is set to become the first black woman to be featured on American currency—specifically, the $20 bill. According to a new report from TIME, however, the impending inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump and the administrative changes that will come along with it have some within the Department of the Treasury concerned about the future of the new legal tender.
  • Email shows Secretary Clinton helped Joe Wilson get government contracts

    American Thinker ^ | 01/12/2016 | Rick Moran
    Getting lucrative government contracts is easy – if you know the right people.  And in the case of former ambassador Joe Wilson, husband of former CIA officer Valerie Plame, it was Hillary Clinton who greased the skids so that government contracts could go to business associates and friends. Is this really in the job description of the secretary of state? Daily Caller: Wilson’s requests for help — on behalf of an American engineering contractor he consulted for called Symbion Power — is a recurring theme in each monthly Clinton email dump. The latest two batches of records are no different....

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will make an announcement today about several changes to U.S. currency. Contrary to a suggestion last year, Alexander Hamilton will apparently be staying on the $10 bill but women’s rights leaders will be added to the back of the bill. The big change will be to the $20 bill according to Politico: Treasury will also announce that it plans to replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, the sources said. There will also be changes to the $5 bill to depict civil rights era leaders. The Treasury Department announced last June...

    Federal Reserve Bank of New York officials secretly conducted real-time exercises during the 2011 and 2013 debt-limit crisis that demonstrated the federal government could function during a temporary shutdown by prioritizing spending, even as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew publicly claimed many times that such efforts were “unworkable,” according to a new report by the House Financial Services Committee obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The staff report, to be released Tuesday, charges that Lew and other Obama administration officials deliberately misled Congress and the public during the federal budget and debt limit showdowns in both years. The committee will...

    Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew is set to announce on Thursday that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will remove Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill, in favor of a woman. The change could happen as soon as 2020. The announcement came via Nancy Lindborg, president of the US Institute of Peace, who tweeted out the news.... ...The choice to replace Hamilton on the $10 bill as opposed to President Jackson on the $20 bill is a curious one.

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew did not find a warm welcome this weekend at the Jerusalem Post's annual conference in New York. As the Treasury official spoke Sunday on the Obama administration's negotiations with Iran over a possible nuclear deal, he drew loud boos from the event's many attendees. Lew stated that the Obama administration has always been dedicated to the goal of making sure Iran doesn't obtain a nuclear weapon, adding also that the White House has taken steps to ensure this. "Because of the aggressive sanctions that have been put in place for over a decade, Iran has been...

    A book by a French economist who became a darling of 99 percenters and his lefty peers is riddled with errors, cherry-picked data and flawed premises, according to two new studies. Thomas Piketty's “Capital in the 21st Century,” which New York Times columnist and Nobel-prize winner Paul Krugman called “the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade,” calls for an 80 percent income tax to stop wealth inequality from increasing. The book earned its author an invitation to the White House to meet with Obama administration Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. ... ... The recent...
  • CNN/ORC Poll: Debt Ceiling blame game. Majority will blame Republicans if debt ceiling not raised.

    More Americans would blame Republicans in Congress than President Barack Obama if the nation's debt ceiling is not raised, according to a new national poll. The release of the CNN/ORC International survey on Monday came as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew issued yet another public warning to Congress to act quickly to extend the nation's borrowing authority. Fifty-four percent of those questioned say they would blame the GOP in Congress if the debt ceiling isn't raised, with 29% saying they'd hold the President more responsible. Twelve percent say they'd point fingers at both sides. The numbers are little changed from last...

    Business Insider ^ | Jan 22, 2014 | Brett LoGiurato
    The U.S. is likely to exhaust its borrowing authority on the earlier side of what Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had estimated, he said in a letter to Congressional leaders on Wednesday. Lew warned in the new letter that Congress will likely need to raise the debt ceiling by late February to avoid a potential default on the country's obligations. As part of the bill to reopen the government in mid-October, the debt limit was suspended through Feb. 7. The Treasury can use so-called "extraordinary measures" after that point to keep borrowing and paying the nation's bills for a few weeks...

    The Washington Monument syndrome is describe the tendency of government agencies in the United States to cut the most visible or appreciated services provided by the government when faced with budget cuts. And protect massive waste (since no one would miss the massive waste if it was cut). Such as closing National Parks and Monuments. What are government agencies hiding? The fact that agencies have large concentrations of non-essential personnel. Even Time.com recognizes that most of Federal government in non-essential. The interest payments on Federal debt is a small percentage of Federal current expenditures (11.5% at the end of Q2)....

    Bob Woodward said that sequestration was Obama's & Lew's idea. Why now is Obama againt it? Why was he for it before he was against it? Why does he flip-flop on his CORE beliefs (raising the debt ceiling, the individual mandate, sequestration, etc)? Not secondary or tertiary beliefs...core beliefs. And why is Lew fearmongering over the debt ceiling? What he has said about it recently has been debunked by Moody's.

    Debt Talks: When Treasury Secretary Jack Lew repeatedly says the government has no choice in paying its bills if the debt ceiling is breached, he must surely know it's not true. So why say it? In a word, politics. As the nation's chief financial officer, the Treasury secretary has an enormous responsibility to shoot straight with the American public about the state of our finances. So does President Obama, for that matter. But when it comes to the political dispute over raising the debt ceiling from its current $16.7 trillion, Lew unfortunately has not leveled with us. Opting for political...

Orrin Hatch (R.-Utah), the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, delivered a blistering statement directly to the face of Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew in a committee hearing this morning addressing the legal limit on the federal government’s debt. Hatch told Lew that statements and arguments Lew has been making in defense of the administration’s position that it will not negotiate with Congress over the terms of increasing the debt limit were “not true” and “simply false.”

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Thursday denounced "irresponsible and reckless" arguments against boosting the $16.7 trillion debt limit. In testimony before Congress, the president's top economic adviser took aim at Republican "deniers" who contend that the nation need not default if the debt limit is not raised. Lew argued such an approach risks "irrevocable damage" to the nation's reputation on the global stage and in financial markets. Everything from military pay to Social Security payments could be put at risk without a debt limit boost, he warned. "It is irresponsible and reckless to insist that we experience a forced default...
