Spending Cuts and Debt

Bring Back Reaganomics

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

We’ve heard President Biden recite the same line over and over again, that he wouldn’t raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 per year. This is a flat out lie. President Biden’s disastrous budget proposal includes the highest sustained tax hike since 1968 and nearly 60 percent of taxpayers will see their taxes go up under this plan. Under President Donald Trump, we had the strongest econo...

What Is Your Stimulus Check Really Costing You?

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Millions of Americans will soon be receiving a $1,400 stimulus check from the latest round of “COVID” relief. While I’m sure many people are happy about seeing this extra money come in, have you thought about what that check is really costing you? Our country has spent more than $5.7 trillion on COVID relief packages since March of last year. If you divide that by the roughly 330 million people li...

“Show me your budget, show me your values”

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

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...

Passing Bills Off to the Next Generation

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

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 dif...
