US Treasury Secretary Is Optimistic About American Congress Working Together

Jack Lew sees good signs for the economy both on Capitol Hill and Main Street.
And his message to the rest of the world: there’s work to be done.

The Treasury Secretary said he is encouraged by Congress, which in recent months agreed on a budget, spending bill and debt limit measure.
“Maybe — just maybe,” Lew said, “we’ll be able, for a couple of years, to keep doing business that way.”
By handling these matters, Washington is sending a worldwide message, one Lew says he’ll bring to a gathering of global financial leaders this week in Australia.
