“Subject: RE: Should Libya pay us back?
We have a giant deficit. They have a lot of oil. Most Americans would choose not to engage in the world
because of that deficit. If we want to continue to engage in the world, gestures like having oil rich
countries partially pay us back doesn’t seem crazy to me.” (This is a shortened version of Tanden’s tweet; the full text is easily available online.)
My question is this: Why are our two Senators, Markey and Warren, even considering voting to put Neera Tanden in charge of the OMB? It’s like bringing Trump back to the White House.
