Opposition Grows As Jack Lew Proves He Doesn't Understand Budgets

Jack Lew, President Obama's choice to replace Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary, has been in Washington DC a long time. Anyone in public service that long will have quite a record of public statements that will paint an accurate picture for Senators who are considering his nomination.

Jack Lew, Architect Of Budgets Receiving Zero Votes, To Replace Geithner As Secretary Of Treasury

It has been widely reported this week that President Obama will nominate Jack Lew today for Secretary of the Treasury, replacing Timothy Geithner, expected to step down next month. It takes a special kind of crazy only found in Washington DC for someone who has failed so spectacularly to be nominated to head up our nation's treasury (see also: Geithner, Timothy).

A Simple Plan to Avert the Fiscal Cliff

What should Congress do on the Fiscal Cliff? 1) Lock in $1.2 trillion in ten-year sequester savings. 2) Extend ALL current tax rates for one year. 3) Reform taxes and entitlements to avert another debt downgrade. Questions? P.S. From now on, every debt ceiling increase should be offset by an equivalent amount of spending reductions, in the same bill. No more kicking the can down the road! That is all.

The Prodigal Uncle

I’m trying to help a relative get out of a bad fix.He makes $50,000 a year, but Sam has $54,000 (!) of debt on his credit cards. Worse still, he just showed us plans for a $7,500 cruise next year. “Don’t sweat it,” he said, “I still have room on my Visa!” Crazy, right?

The Conniving Five – Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Boehner and McConnell

Democracy and Power 108: ObfuscationWherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. – Hans F. SennholzThe Conniving Five – Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Boehner and McConnellWould you hire the investment firm of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Boehner and McConnell to manage your money?  Never.

$5 Trillion added to debt since the last budget

Since the senate democrats last passed a budget, the American government has accrued $5 trillion dollars in new debt. The last budget was passed three and a half years ago and, in that time, our debt has risen from $11.2 trillion to $16.2. That is a terrifying benchmark.
