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.
