Sen. Sanders Not Happy With Lew

Via Office of Sen. Sanders:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today on President Barack Obama’s nomination of Jacob Lew to be treasury secretary: “Jack Lew is clearly an extremely intelligent person and I applaud his many years of public service to our country. I believe that he will be confirmed by the Senate. Unfortunately, he will be confirmed without my vote. At a time when the middle class is collapsing and millions of workers are unemployed, I do not believe he is the right person at the right time to serve in this important position. “As a supporter of the president, I remain extremely concerned that virtually all of his key economic advisers have come from Wall Street. In my view, we need a treasury secretary who is prepared to stand up to corporate America and their powerful lobbyists and fight for policies that protect the working families in our country. I do not believe Mr. Lew is that person. . .

Over to you Mr. President. - Greg Pollowitz
