President Trump has chosen a smart and proven fiscal hawk to direct his Office of Management and Budget (OMB), South Carolina Congressman Mick Mulvaney. He has a record of leading Republicans and even working with Democrats to cut federal spending, rein in the debt, and shine the light of transparency on how the federal government handles our tax dollars.

In 2011, just months after arriving in Congress, Mulvaney drafted the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act, which became the centerpiece of the conservative response to another proposed increase in the debt ceiling.

Mulvaney and other House Republicans agreed to swallow the higher debt limit in exchange for real spending cuts, caps on future spending, and serious action toward a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution.

Cut, Cap, and Balance passed the House with bipartisan support, but was killed off by 51 Senate Democrats.

Five-and-a-half years ago, when Mulvaney’s Cut, Cap, and Balance Act was rejected in the Senate, the federal debt was already at $14.3 trillion. Today, it’s nearing $20 trillion. It should be clear by now that it’s time to listen to what Mulvaney has to say about federal spending.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), is charged with developing the president’s federal budget. Writing the White House budget is a serious responsibility that should produce a realistic reflection of the president’s priorities. That budget is also supposed to be the opening entry in a serious back-and-forth dialogue between Congress and the administration. (more…)
