American Bridge On Mick Mulvaney's Nomination Hearing

Jan 24, 2017

Ahead of Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s nomination hearings before the Senate Budget Committee and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee today, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:


“Mick Mulvaney is a right-wing extremist who isn’t sure whether the government should fund scientific research and pals around with conspiracy theorists at John Birch Society meetings.

“Even worse, Mulvaney is a tax cheat who ‘forgot’ to pay taxes owed for an employee — a crime Mulvaney previously thought should disqualify people like him from being nominated to positions in state or federal government. And if Mick Mulvaney can’t handle his family budget, I don’t know how anyone can expect him to be our national budget director. It’s a travesty that Republican Senators haven’t already called for Trump to withdraw Mulvaney’s nomination.”
