Another Obama misstep at OMB
"...Jacob “Jack” Lew may share an affection for market-driven reforms they say were too popular among Clinton’s staff and that he would support cuts to Social Security and Medicare."
Here he goes appointing a Clinton guy again. What's worse, this guy Lew worked with Robert Rubin and was in charge of Citigroup's "alternative asset" division up until 2006. That entire thing imploded. He's also on record as having firmly opposed derivatives regulation.
Terrible choice, terrible!
But this is what I've come to expect from Obama.
