On FOX News Sunday, this Sunday past, July 28, 2013, in one breath he takes credit for the benefits of the sequester then within 2 minutes castigates members of Congress for taking credit for reducing the deficit. Shocking.
LEW: You know, Chris, if you look at what's going on right now, in terms of our deficit, we are reducing the deficit at the fastest rate since the demobilization after World War II we need to talk about growth. We need to talk about how do we build that better future for America's middle class.
2 minutes later:
LEW: The surprising thing is, that, you know, a couple of years after, everyone agreed this was bad policy, there are people who are now claiming credit for things that were designed to be bad policy and senseless across the board cuts. That's truly surprising.
Political hypocrisy, on the other hand, not so shocking.
