Former Acting Whitehouse Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney: Infrastructure Worst Kind of Stimulus

Former acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is advising against moving quickly on another emergency relief bill, especially if it prioritizes infrastructure projects. During an interview this month with Fox Business, Mulvaney laid out his position: “You can’t buy elections. Look, if you’re going to do a stimulus plan, you do it because it’s economically necessary. Are we in a circumstance, an unusual circumstance now, where you’re going to need extraordinary government activity, probably. Which is why I approved what we did, or I approved of what we did several months back. But you can’t, sort of, do it forever and expect people to reward you with re-election.”
