McCain Opposes President Trump’s Deficit-Reducing Pick for OMB

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In a surprising development, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is opposing President Donald Trump’s choice to lead the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Rep Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, has a history of fiscal conservatism, working to reduce our deficit and stop the overspending in Washington.

Among other fiscally conservative actions, he co-authored the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act to lower and cap federal spending and enact a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. This responsible bill would have met the criteria set forth by Standard & Poor’s, stabilizing the debt as a share of our economy. And it would have changed the way Washington spends our tax dollars.

“Sen. McCain is starting another year by betraying conservatives. He already opposed Sen. Rand Paul’s budget plan to put a stop to the current trajectory to add another $9.1 trillion of debt in 10 years,” FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon said. “McCain is on a rampage against fiscal responsibility, opposing Trump’s pick, Rep. Mulvaney, who has a record of willingness to confront and oppose reckless spending in Washington.”

“A real maverick would fight for fiscal responsibility rather than preserve the status quo of excessive government spending and big budget deficits. Unfortunately, Sen. McCain is proving himself just another Washington insider who isn’t serious about tackling the fiscal challenges that face America.”

In the past 24 hours, FreedomWorks has driven over 2,600 emails and over 100 calls to Sen. McCain’s office, urging him to support Rep. Mulvaney.
