Checking in on Mick Mulvaney

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Compare and contrast:

Mick Mulvaney in 2015: “There is no honest way to justify not paying for spending, no matter how often my fellow Republicans try.”

Mick Mulvaney in 2019: “He also said the nation’s $22 trillion in debt is not holding the U.S. back. Quite a morning for the acting COS.”

I wonder what changed between 2015 and 2019? Hmmm . . .

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
