Breaking Down the Biden Budget

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

President Biden has officially submitted his budget request to Congress for Fiscal Year 2023. It should come as a surprise to no one that it consists of more reckless spending that will further exacerbate the many crises our country is currently facing. The Biden Administration cannot continue to drive the same economic policy and expect different results. The president’s budget request should ref...

Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after voting against the House Amendment to S. 610, the Sequestration, PAYGO, and Debt Limit Package. “This package does nothing but pave the way for more reckless spending from the Democrats and it is unacceptable that they have chosen funding their socialist wish list over Medicare,” Mullin said. “Republicans have worked in go...

What Does a Trillion Dollars Look Like?

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

The number of times Washington Democrats have thrown around the word “trillion” in recent history has numbed the American people to the real effects this level of spending has on our future and our children’s future. A trillion dollars is so big that it’s hard to even imagine what it looks like, so let’s first break the number itself down to time. One trillion seconds is 317 centuries. If you spen...

Blank Check for Socialism

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

By now, you have probably heard about President Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” bill and all the empty promises in it. The truth is that it will do nothing to build our country up. Instead, this is a blank check to take our country into socialism. This bill will change every American’s way of life. It’s filled with radical policy changes that will raise costs on all goods, put the federa...

Investing in Everything but Infrastructure

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

There’s no denying the infrastructure needs of our district. Whether it’s driving to work, getting kids to school, or stopping by the grocery store on the way home— Oklahomans are reminded daily that our crumbling roads and bridges are in desperate need of repair. There’s also no denying this $1 trillion “infrastructure” package is not going to fix any of it. $1 trillion sounds like a number that ...

Democrats’ Spending Spree

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

You can’t spend more than you have without acquiring debt. And eventually, you will have to pay that debt. I believe most people understand this basic principle of fiscal responsibility.
