    Sounds like Wall St.

    •  You are right I forgot about (0+ / 0-)

      his 9month stint at Citigroup alternative investment group. Where he lost a small fortune.  


      But Lew's time with Citigroup should be pared against his efforts to preserve programs for low-income Americans during last year's budget and debt-ceiling negotiations. Lew also boasts a record of policy achievements geared towards protecting the most vulnerable, like helping create the Low-Income Heating Assistance Program. And his time on the board of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, one of Washington's premier think tanks on low-income and poverty issues, suggests that his heart isn't with Wall Street, as Mother Jones DC bureau chief David Corn reminds us.

      Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?
