Senator David Perdue Statement On Meeting With Congressman Mulvaney

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, today met with Congressman Mick Mulvaney (R-SC-05), President-elect Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Director of the Office of Management and Budget:  


“Our country is well past the tipping point in this debt crisis, and when Washington’s spend now, save later merry-go-round stops, it’s not going to be pretty. We need a White House Office of Management and Budget Director who is focused on cutting waste, eliminating redundant programs, and tackling our country’s fiscal problems head on.

“I had a great meeting with Congressman Mulvaney today. He has spent years studying our country’s finances and pushing Congress to cut excess spending, even if it was not the popular thing to do in Washington. Congressman Mulvaney is a great choice to lead us in a new direction, and I fully support this nomination. I look forward to working with Congressman Mulvaney and President-elect Donald J. Trump to bring some common-sense to our country’s finances and hold all of us accountable to paying down the national debt.”
