GOP Plans Tough Questioning of Lew

"Senate Democrats are pushing to quickly confirm Jacob Lew as Treasury secretary, but at a hearing Wednesday, Republicans plan to grill him about his tenure in the financial world," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Lew has less experience in business and finance than in government budgeting--a fact that Republicans could highlight. And his business experience--primarily working at Citigroup Inc. from 2006 until 2009--will draw attention because the bank needed a taxpayer-funded bailout to survive the financial crisis."
