Jack Lew

Following quotation was the closing story on Marketplace today. Do we really want Jack Lew at the Treasury?

“This final note on the way out, which comes as Treasury Secretary-designate Jack Lew started his round of get-to-know-you meetings on Capitol Hill today.

The Jewish Daily Forward newspaper recounts that Lew was once asked to serve as the treasurer at his local synagogue. Turned it down with a smile, the story goes, saying synagogue finances would be harder to manage than the federal budget.”
