Mulvaney Issues Statement On Budget Deal
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Mick Mulvaney released the following statement on the Ryan/Murray budget proposal:
“I voted against the Ryan/Murray proposal today. Were there parts of this bill I liked? Yes. I can absolutely support federal worker pension reform. However, instead of using those modest savings to pay down our debt, this bill uses those savings to spend more money. It is difficult for me to vote for something that trades spending increases now for promised reductions in the future. The past promised spending reductions just never seem to pan out. It’s not unreasonable to believe we are making the exact same mistake now.
It seems, yet again, that Washington cannot wean itself from its spending addiction Indeed, what we saw today is another example of how we got $17 trillion in debt: we can have lots of bipartisanship, as long as we spend more money.”
