Hawk Mulveney to rescue us from red ink

Slate: resident-Elect Donald Trump is sending a clear message with his pick for White House budget director, saying that he wants one of the most outspoken fiscal conservatives in Congress to take the post. Trump announced on Saturday he will nominate Rep. Mick Mulvaney from South Carolina to head the Office of Management and Budget. Mulvaney, who arrived in Congress as part of the Tea Party wave elected in 2010, is one of the co-founders of the House Freedom Caucus, which battled with the Republican leadership in Congress over spending and pushed the resignation of then-House Speaker John Boehner.
“We are going to do great things for the American people with Mick Mulvaney,” Trump said in a statement. “Right now we are nearly $20 trillion in debt, but Mick is a very high-energy leader with deep convictions for how to responsibly manage our nation’s finances and save our country from drowning in red ink.”
Swamper in chief picked a budget hawk, good luck.
