Media Attacks Mick Mulvaney’s Salary, But Trump White House Saves Taxpayers Millions

Published

on

White House “acting” chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and his team are at the top of the pecking order when it comes to White House salaries — and deservedly so.

The mainstream media is targeting Mulvaney’s paycheck in their ongoing quest to disparage the Mick, even though President Trump’s White House spending cuts have saved the American taxpayer $19.8 million compared to Barack Obama’s White House at this point in the Democrat’s presidency. In that previous White House, First Lady Michelle had twice as many staffers as current First Lady Melania.

Politico reports: “The highest paid staffer in the Trump White House…It’s one of acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s closest aides and his de facto spokesman inside the West Wing, whose official title is senior adviser to the chief of staff for strategy and stakeholder engagement…Mulvaney also benefits from earning a higher salary as a West Wing staffer detailed from an agency. Technically, he is still on loan from the budget office and earns $203,500.”

Good for Mick!

The establishment treats Mulvaney much like John F. Kennedy’s great adviser Kenny O’Donnell, whom they referred to as a lynchpin of the so-called “Irish Mafia.” But Mulvaney’s results speak for themselves.

Before beating Jared Kushner for chief of staff, Mick already made his name in the administration for unilaterally firing the entire 25-member Consumer Financial Protection Bureau advisory board. His work as chief of staff has kept Trump more tethered to reality, popping the Washington bubble — unlike Stephen Miller, whose young friend Sylvia May Davis puts Bill Kristol white papers on the president’s desk. Tucker Carlson has established himself during the Mulvaney Age as the only rightful Fox News primetime adviser for the president, steering Trump out of imminent war with Iran.

Mulvaney helped Trump set the all-time record for longest government shutdown, serve McDonald’s in the White House, declare a national emergency to build the Wall, and veto both houses of Congress when they tried to stop the national emergency to build the Wall. Now, the Wall’s fate will almost certainly be decided by the Supreme Court — where Trump has placed two justices, just two of the more than 100 judges that he has successfully seated to the bench.

POLL: Hispanics Support Big Government Across The Board

Even Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of the Average Republican

Published

on

Pew Research released some interesting statistics highlighting Latino voters’ views on national political problems based on a survey they conducted on Latino adults this past December.

Record numbers of Latinos — 32 million — will be voting in the 2020 general election. This exceeds the number of eligible black voters for the first time in history.

According to the results, the majority of Hispanic voters favor more government involvement on issues ranging from minimum wage to gun control.

62 percent of registered voters identify or lean toward the Democrat Party, whereas 34 percent connect with or lean in the direction of the Republican Party.

Several key findings stood out:

Most Hispanic voters (71%) say the government should do more to solve problems, while 27% say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.

The findings by Jens Manuel Krogstad, Mark Hugo Lopez and Abby Budiman revealed that 82 percent of Hispanics who identify with or lean Democrat “say the government should do more to solve problems, compared with 51% of those who affiliate with or lean toward the GOP.”

As far as minimum wage is concerned, the three authors found some interesting results

On the minimum wage, a large majority of Hispanic voters (79%) say they favor raising it to $15 an hour, including more than half (56%) who say they strongly favor this change. Majorities in both parties favor raising the minimum wage, though Hispanic Democrats are much more likely than Hispanic Republicans to do so (88% vs. 62%, respectively).

The same Hispanic support for big government held true for healthcare which the authors noted below:

Hispanic voters generally believe the U.S. government should play a role in providing health care to Americans. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, including 38% who favor a national health insurance system and 32% who prefer a mix of private and government health care coverage. Around a quarter (28%) say it is not the government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, though most in this group say they prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

When broken down across partisan lines, there were some key differences between Hispanics Democrats and Hispanic Republicans:

Hispanic Democrats and Republicans have different views on the role government should play in providing health coverage. About eight-in-ten Hispanic Democratic voters (84%) say it is the government’s responsibility to ensure Americans have health care, with 49% supporting a national health insurance system. Meanwhile, about half (51%) of Hispanic Republican voters say it is not the government’s responsibility to ensure universal coverage, though most in this group prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

Interestingly, Hispanic Republicans were considerably to the Left of the average Republican voter on healthcare. 24 percent of Republican voters believe that the government should be responsible for guaranteeing healthcare coverage.

For gun control, there was also a noticeable Hispanic majority in favor of stricter gun laws:

“Around seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) say gun laws should be stricter than they are today, while 24% say current gun laws are about right. Only 7% say gun laws should be less strict. The survey was conducted several months after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, involving a suspect who said he targeted Mexicans.”

Similarly, there was a sharp partisan gap on gun control among Hispanics:

Among Hispanic Democratic voters, 80% say gun laws should be stricter. Hispanic Republican voters are more evenly divided, with 44% saying gun laws should be stricter and 42% saying gun laws are about right.

In the Republican case, Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of Republican voters on gun control. Only 27 percent of Republican voters want stricter gun laws.

All things considered, continued mass migration will not only ensure eventual Democrat Party domination in the near future, but also a more leftist Republican opposition that now has a big government faction within its ranks.
