LLPH names Rep. Mulvaney (R-SC 5) as the strongest leader for fiscal responsibility on this debate on the Sandy Supplemental.
Here’s the YouTube Video of his Floor Speech in favor of his offset amendment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2NtQ9p2slI
He went on CNN to support his amendment:
I’ll be on CNN around 8:30 this morning to discuss the Hurricane Sandy Supplemental Relief Bill. I’ll post the video later.
Here’s the link of his interview with CNN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbwhEaVrpDU&feature=youtu.be
He stated in a press release on his strong support for offsetting the amendment:
“As a Representative from South Carolina, a state that has experienced many hurricanes of its own, I know and understand the need for disaster relief. Providing relief for large-scale natural disasters is a proper function of government and I absolutely support the federal government’s role in situations such as this. That being said, I have offered two amendments to the Sandy Supplemental Relief Bill that will off-set the cost by finding savings in other areas and one amendment that seeks accountability in how the money is spent. I believe these to be common-sense ideas. I know how important the supplemental relief is to those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but I believe we can provide that relief while finding ways to pay for it, rather than adding to the nation’s ballooning deficit. Indeed, if we cannot come together under these tragic circumstances to find a way to pay for this relief, do we seriously believe we will have the political will to ever balance the budget?”
