Budget chief who wants to cut Meals on Wheels says he is sacrificing by giving up business cards

-snip-

“If you think about the coal miner and the single mom, doesn’t saving begin at home?” Dickerson asked. “I mean, there are things the president can do to cut back on his own using that text… The coal miner doesn’t get to fly down to Mar-a-Lago either.”

Mulvaney agreed that he knew the bill would hurt children and prevent them from having access to nutritional food from organizations like Meals on Wheels, but he wants people to know he’s suffering too.

“Yes,” he began. “I don’t have a business card to give to you today, John, because, at the Office of Management and Budget, we have to pay for our own business cards. So it does start at home but it’s already started.”

1. republiCONs are so friggin' rediculus when they're trying to screw you.

Wonder if Mulvaney likes his business cards with or without ketchup?

2. Cheap SOB can't spring for a few business cards? He was confirmed a month ago.

Obviously he's not interested in having anyone contact him.

6. Short term

Maybe he thinks his boss will be indicted, or resign so he is putting off wasting $$$ on business cards??

7. Who uses business cards anymore?

I can just text a whole contact entry with emails, phones, company name, website, linked in, etc. in just seconds.

Business cards don't cost very much so he is just a cheap asshole who doesn't want anyone to contact him and give him hell.

But Trumpers think Hillary and the Dems are the real out of touch elitists who don't care about real people.

13. We're near the end of Trump's presidency so why waste money on business cards

I hope they all get carted off to prison soon and Trump is put in a mental institution.

14. Why don't we make this easy for him?

Business cards are so 20th Century. What we need is his vCard.

Someone (an alt-OMB staffer, perhaps) should make public his contact information: his email address, his office phone number, his mobile number, his social media connections.

We can take it from there... giving it the widest possible dissemination.

19. This ass says their part of the meels on wheels program is only 3%

Even if that were true, can you tell me which 3 out of every hundred you would like to deny a meal? Programs like this rely on the consistency of government grants as a base then fan out to find private donor help. Without a consistent base, it's hard to survive. But go ahead you fascist, give a bunch of very wealthy people a big tax break, soak more lost unaccounted for money into the military budget and deny food to needy people. Just admit that's what you are doing so we can get on with it.

20. Government has NOT been paying for business cards for more than 20 years.

I worked in the white house for a year more than 20 years ago and we had to buy our own business cards then. This is utter nonsense and more crap from the TRump folks.
