Mar 6, 2013 Press Release
Today Congress approved H. R. 933, the Department of Defense, Military Construction, and Veterans Affairs and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund government operations. The bill passed by a vote of 267 – 151. "I voted yes on this bill because it gives our military much-needed flexibility during sequestration and makes the spending cuts that are vital to finally balancing the budget permanent,” Mullin said. “These cuts are real cuts to spending and reign in many out-of-control tentacles of the federal government such as the EPA and IRS.”

In President George Washington’s Farewell Address, he said, “With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles.

Mar 1, 2013 Press Release
Today marks the beginning of the across-the-board spending cuts called the sequester. It is unfortunate that in Washington, nobody can agree to make the spending cuts needed to replace the sequester. Oklahomans have seen through the ratcheted-up political rhetoric coming from both the White House and Congress. They are ready for the dysfunction to stop and for this country to get back on stable fiscal footing by making common-sense cuts to federal spending that do not threaten public safety, national defense or the economy.

"The constitution was not written by the government to tell the people what rights they had. The constitution was written by the people to limit the government’s power. What the Obama administration is proposing in potential legislative actions and executive orders is a violation of 2nd amendment rights which guarantees us the right to keep and bear arms."
