Sessions: Why Jack Lew "Must Never" Be Treasury Secretary
SESSIONS: Well, I gave him a chance at the hearing. He'd already said these statements publicly. I quoted them back to him, and he said it was accurate. He defended those statements, although I will acknowledge that Secretary Geithner, who followed him before the committee, would not say so. He knew that wasn't accurate. He acknowledged that the president's budget did not put us on sustainable path, but not Mr. Lew.
He continued to spin and repeat those misstatements. And indeed, the president was running ads on it in September right before the election, saying the same thing, that his budget paid down the debt. And it's absolutely not true!
