Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, member of the Senate Finance Committee, issued the following statement today after meeting with President Obama's nominee for Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew.
"Our country continues to face a serious fiscal crisis that requires cooperation and leadership from Congress and the Administration. It is clear that Mr. Lew understands the challenges and the need to strengthen our economy, create jobs, and ensure that we are providing more opportunity to our kids and grandkids. I am confident that his experience, expertise and deep knowledge about the issues we face make him an outstanding candidate to serve as Treasury Secretary. I look forward to working with him to reform our tax code and put our country on a sustainable fiscal path."
