Jack Lew Happy To See People Finally Get Their Heads Out Of Their Asses Re: Jack Lew

He's not just playing Angry Birds and eating in the government cafeteria, folks.

Nice as it is to finally get noticed around here (and to hang out with Lin-Manuel Miranda), the Treasury Secretary isn’t thrilled with the impression he’s just been keep keeping Alexander Hamilton’s seat warm (and practicing his penmanship) for the last three years.

You know, a guy doesn’t have to look like he’s getting a four-year long colonoscopy to prove that he’s working hard at 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“If you look at any of the periods of the last three-plus years that I’ve been secretary, there have been issues that have been high-profile issues at every point. There is a coincidence that there are a number of things happening at the same time now,” he said.

“I can’t tell you why some things get people’s attention more than others, but there hasn’t been a slow period in the time I’ve been here,” Mr. Lew added.
