See what Senator Rockefeller said about ‘income inequality’ — it is sort of interesting for a Rockefeller to say it

See below notes from FNC’s Kara Rowland from a confirmation. hearing this morning in the US Senate where Mr. Lew is testifying.

 

Lew
I don’t believe the sequester can just be rearranged…the impact would be the same
We need a balanced approach

Schumer
Like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Just shifting the cuts – you’d have the same overall impact.

Lew
It’s not the right policy. Sequester was never meant to go into effect

—-
Sen. Rockefeller
I’ve never understood why Republicans are so against raising revenue…you need it to get anything done. I don’t know if it’s Grover Norquist or what
I need to know you’re on that side

Lew
Nobody likes raising taxes…but if the choice is hurting our priorities…need a balanced approach

Rockefeller
Income inequality is a vast problem in this country…it’s a disgrace

Lew
12:38:52 PM I believe strongly … In having a tax system that contributes less to that. President also mentioned some steps last night
