Mnuchin, Mulvaney Ripped by GOP Lawmakers


Despite an attempt during a closed-door conference meeting Friday to rally wary Republicans around a debt ceiling bill they hated, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney were heavily criticized by GOP congressmen. Reports say at least a dozen lawmakers said that Donald Trump shouldn’t have blindsided them the way he did when he struck a deal with Democratic leaders earlier in the week. Reports add that the room also booed and hissed when Mulvaney and Mnuchin refused to commit to spending cuts during the next debt ceiling debate — and then asked for GOP lawmakers to vote on the current legislation.
