President-Elect Trump Nominates Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) Budget Director

Dec 22, 2016 / Michael Natalie, Horsesmouth Assistant Editor

Rep. Mulvaney has a long history of voting against raising the debt ceiling—he expresses disappointment in how the debt has faded from the national conversation on his personal webpage. As budget chief, Mulvaney will be preparing the Trump Administration’s budget proposals to Congress.

Mulvaney has endorsed cuts to Social Security and Medicare in the past. It remains unclear how this departure from President-elect Trump’s promise not to cut Social Security benefits will be borne out in the new administration’s proposals.
