Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after voting to confirm President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury, Steve Mnuchin: 

“We are well past the tipping point in this debt crisis and both political parties are to blame so I was glad to see President Trump nominate someone from outside of Washington to help fix our country’s financial problems. Steve Mnuchin has a deep understanding of economic policies both on the financial markets and what they mean for Main Street American business. Steve Mnuchin’s input will be extremely valuable as we work to tackle this debt crisis and fix our outdated tax code, and I look forward to working with him on these critical issues.”
