RINO John McCain ONLY Republican to Vote Against Conservative Budget Director

RINO John McCain at the Christian Science Monitor Breakfast, Dec. 2, 2015

U.S. Senator and 2008 loser to Barack Obama, John McCain (RINO – AZ) was the only Republican to vote against President Trump’s appointee to lead the Office of Budget Management (OMB).

McCain joined Democrats, as he is prone to do despite masquerading as a Republican, in opposing conservative Congressman Mick Mulvaney , known as a deficit hawk to head OMB.

Nevertheless, Mulvaney was narrowly confirmed in a tight vote, 51-49 on Thursday, with every other Republican voting in favor of Mulvaney. Every Democrat voted “no” on confirming Mulvaney.

Big government McCain voted against Mulvaney because he was concerned about streamlining military spending. For decades, McCain has been owned by large defense contractors.

The OMB position will put Mick Mulvaney as the head of what is considered one of the most powerful agencies in the federal government because it has a major influence in how money is spent.

Mulvaney will assist President Trump in budget preparations and provide guidance to the various government agencies on their budget preparation as well.
