Mick Mulvaney’s CFPB Jobs
Mick served as a U.S. Representative from 2011 to 2017. He was nominated as OMB Director by President-elect Donald Trump in December 2016 and confirmed by the Senate on February 16, 2017, and served in that role for three years, until March of this year.
In 2017, he was named acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and served in that role for one year, until December of 2018. He simultaneously served as the acting White House Chief of Staff for one year, until this March. Earlier this year he was appointed to his current role as Special Envoy. He was replaced as chief of staff by Congressman Mark Meadows.
Mulvaney was known for his support for fiscal conservatism as a congressman. However, as OMB Director, he oversaw an expansion in the deficit.
Mulvaney’s tenure as acting Director of the bureau led to a large reduction of the bureau’s enforcement and regulatory powers.
According to a review of Mulvaney’s tenure as CFPB head, he ended up undermining the enforcement and regulatory powers of the bureau.
Mulvaney immediately stopped hiring at the CFPB, stopped collecting fines, suspended rulemaking, and ordered all active investigations reviewed. Mulvaney also sharply reduced agency personnel’s access to bank data. By early 2018, more than four months after taking charge of the CFPB, Mulvaney had not undertaken a single enforcement action against finance companies.
Under Mulvaney, consumer complaints rose substantially. The New York Times reported that Mulvaney showed up at the CFPB just a few days a week and worked a few hours at a time.
It is unknown what Pamela West Mulvaney’s thoughts on her husband’s actions were. The short-haired lady prefers to stay out of the spotlight.
Mick Mulvaney’s Meals On Wheels
Back in early 2017, as Mulvaney was promoting the Trump administration’s budget proposal, he said assured taxpayers the government was,
“not gonna ask you for your hard-earned money, anymore … unless we can guarantee to you that that money is actually being used in a proper function.”
Pamela’s husband used as an example of the said statement, the case of Meals on Wheels in which he said that he justified cuts to block grants that go towards spending on the program, saying it was “just not showing any results”.
“They’re supposed to be educational programs, right? I mean, that’s what they’re supposed to do. They’re supposed to help kids who don’t get fed at home get fed so they do better in school,” Mulvaney said. “Guess what? There’s no demonstrable evidence they’re actually doing that. There’s no demonstrable evidence they’re actually helping results. And we can’t prove that that’s happening.”
Others disagreed with Mulvaney’s statement, citing research that has “found home-delivered meal programs to significantly improve diet quality, increase nutrient intakes, and reduce food insecurity and nutritional risk among participants.”
