President Trump and the nation need Russ Vought at OMB

June 11, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate to confirm the nomination of Russ Vought to head the Office of Management and Budget:

“With a projected budget deficit of $3.7 trillion for 2020, Russ Vought is the right person to be heading up the Office of Management and Budget.  Russ’ focus on fiscal sanity and ensuring that all the extra hundreds of billions of dollars now being devoted to the pandemic response, including payroll protection, are being properly allocated is essential to protecting taxpayers’ interests.

“In addition to his commitment to protecting the Treasury from profligate spending, Russ Vought has played a crucial role in analyzing regulatory relief measures to ensure that they met the President’s and our nation’s needs. With President Trump seeking to further streamline government to ensure that our economy is jump started and recovers rapidly from the economic COVID catastrophe, our nation cannot afford to train someone in this crucial position. It is clear that at this time in history, America needs Russ Vought’s expertise and priorities in the lead at the OMB.

“Americans for Limited Government urges a yes vote on Russ Vought’s nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget.”
