Donald Trump named South Carolina Congressman Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Many conservatives cheered the move.

But Congressman Trey Gowdy had the final word on the matter.

Gowdy took to Twitter and praised the selection of his fellow South Carolinian conservative to this important post.

As head of the OMB, it falls to Mulvaney to draft Trump’s budgets.

And conservatives – who are heartened by Mulvaney’s record as one of the most fiscally conservative members of Congress – believe America will finally be on the road to fiscal sanity.

While a member of the Freedom Caucus, Mulvaney regularly opposed raising the debt ceiling and voted against legislation supported by the establishment that blew a hole in the nation’s balance sheet.

Newsmax reported:

“Mulvaney, 49, was elected during the 2010 Republican sweep, but quickly established himself as a fiscal conservative and played a key role in the passage of budget caps in 2011.
He also has pushed his own party to seek spending cuts, and House Speaker Paul Ryan on Saturday said Trump made the right choice.

“In Congress, he has been a conservative reformer from day one, proposing solutions to fix the budget process and our regulatory system,” said Ryan, R-Wisconsin. “At OMB, he will lead the work he has started to improve the way government does the people’s business.”

Mulvaney, as a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, was part of a group of lawmakers who pushed former House Speaker John Boehner to resign in 2015, and while he’s a conservative hard-liner, he has also broken ranks with his party several times.”

Based on his record, many conservatives share Congressman Gowdy’s optimism that Mulvaney’s appointment means the Trump administration is serious about getting our nation’s $20 trillion debt under control.
