    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after the House passed the H.R. 925, the Heroes Act 2.0. Mullin was not present for the vote due to supporting his son’s ongoing rehabilitation from a wrestling injury but would have voted “no” on the bill. “Once again, Speaker Pelosi has put a bill on the floor that is nothing but a socialist wish list full of provisions that don’t have anything to do with fighting the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mullin said. “We have already spent t...

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 7608, the first Fiscal Year 2021 spending package.

    This week, President Trump released his budget proposal. It shows his commitment to fiscal responsibility by shrinking the federal government, stopping wasteful spending and providing a path to a balanced budget. One common misconception about the budget process is that Congress considers the president’s budget exactly as he proposes it. Just as the president sets a legislative agenda in his State of the Union speech – even though he can’t write or draft legislation – the president submits a bud... Read more

    When my wife and I took over my family’s small plumbing business shortly after graduating high school, it was over a half a million dollars in debt. We knew this was unsustainable and that we had to make changes to get us back on track. We worked seven days a week, made tough choices to move the business from red to green, and paid back all that we owed. Unfortunately, our country is in a very different situation than my company was in. Our national debt is over $22 trillion and growing by the d... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) offered three amendments to the spending bills the House of Representatives voted on this week, H.R. 2740 and H.R. 3055. All of the amendments, Amendment #89, Amendment #147 and Amendment #148, would prohibit funding for Obama-era, job-killing regulations. “The Obama Administration continuously used social cost of carbon models, which can easily be manipulated, in order to attempt to justify new job-killing regulations,” said Mullin, during debate on Amendmen...

    In this week’s Mullin It Over, I’d like to take the time to answer a few of the questions that I’ve heard from my constituents recently about Social Security solvency. Protecting Social Security is a priority for all of us and it’s important that your questions are answered. “Can you tell me why you voted for stealing from SS (Social Security)?” Posted on Facebook on October 2, 2018 In April, the House considered H.J. Res 2, proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United... Read more

    Entrepreneurs in Oklahoma have a lot to celebrate this Small Business Week. Each day, the federal government does more and more to get government out of the way so that our small businesses can succeed.

Nationally, small businesses represent 99.9 percent of all businesses with employees and account for 2 out of 3 net new jobs. With over 29 million small businesses across o... Read more

    Earlier this month, President Trump released a blueprint for his budget with an aim to put ‘America First.’ This blueprint makes it clear that our president is committed to creating a much smaller government that Americans voted in favor of last November. He proposed increasing spending for national security and more funding to rebuild our nation’s military in his budget request to Congress. I support several portions of President Trump’s budget including the funding increases to ramp up our def... Read more
