Treasury Secretary Lew in the Harvard Journal on Legislation: "Managing Our National Debt Responsibly: A Better Way Forward" Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew has authored a piece on the issue of the debt limit in the upcoming edition of the Harvard Journal on Legislation. The piece, published online today, explains how our debt is managed, explores the history of the debt limit, and examines the costs our country has incurred through numerous debt limit impasses. Secretary Lew writes that the current debt limit regime presents grave risk and no longer serves the United States well. He calls for Congress to chart a new path that removes the unnecessary and self-inflicted threats that debt limit brinksmanship has imposed on our economy and our security. go.usa.gov/x92KF

WASHINGTON – U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew has authored a long-form article in the upcoming edition of the New York University Journal of Legislation and Public Policy outlining how Wall Street Reform strengthened our financial system and laid the foundation for long-run growth by reorienting our regulatory system to be more flexible and forward-looking. In the piece, published online today, Secretary Lew underscores how Wall Street Reform not only fixed what was broken in 2008, but also set up mechanisms and institutions to identify and respond to new and emerging risks. Maintaining these structures, Secretary Lew argues, is imperative to helping prevent future crises.

46% of all Americans would have to borrow funds or sell valuables to cover a $400 expense. This number is an increase from just 35% in 2009. This means that nearly 1 in 2 Americans do not have enough to cover emergency expenses: medical bill, car repairs, or major home damages. Health, education, and safety are fundamental necessities that every American should not have to worry about.
