A Big Day for Trump’s Budget Pick, Social Security — and Millionaires

Richard Eskow

A full Senate vote is expected today on Donald Trump’s pick for White House Budget Director, Rep. Mick Mulvaney. That means that Mulvaney’s nomination could come up for a vote just as a group of lawmakers and experts are speaking on the Hill in support of Social Security — and on the same day that millionaires stop paying their Social Security taxes.

The timing is interesting, since Mulvaney has been trying to cut Social Security for years.

I pray we can prevent the confirmation of Mulvaney.

The majority party that controls the Senate and the Congress has no conscience and will prey irrespective of prayer. Though I. too, pray that they act conscientiously, it is evident that they will not.
