WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s remarks regarding Republicans’ failure to address out-of-control federal spending, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks’ President, commented:
“Mr. Mulvaney is right to point fingers at Republicans for changing their tune on deficits post-Obama. There is no excuse for congressional Republicans agreeing to ever-higher spending levels, passing grossly bloated omnibus bills, and ignoring the entitlement crisis when they have a president in the White House willing to cut spending.
“Republicans cannot continue to claim their opposition to socialism while agreeing to bigger spending and thus bigger government. Instead of being complicit in Speaker Pelosi’s radical agenda, Republicans should be taking advice from principled conservatives like many in the House Freedom Caucus and Sens. Lee and Paul who have remained steadfast in their principles.”
