Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has prepared a statement saying "Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury."
He is not saying yet whether he will filibuster the nomination, however, which sources say President Obama will announce Thursday. (The Hill)
If Jack Lew is so bad, why wouldn't Republicans filibuster the nomination, why wouldn't they do everything they in their power to keep him from becoming Secretary of Treasury?
The article continues:
Sessions expects that the Lew nomination will fail in the Senate, an aide said.
The senator says Lew misrepresented Obama's 2012 budget by claiming that it did not add to the debt.
"His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies," according to the Sessions' statement, which was obtained by The Hill in advance.
Sessions says in his statement that Lew, as the president’s budget director told Congress the budget "would not add to the debt of the United States." (The Hill)
