Mulvaney's office said his spending cuts came on top of automatic reductions to congressional budgets in 2011 and 2012.
“At a time when Americans are tightening their budgets, I have made an effort to do the same with my Congressional office budget," Mulvaney said in a statement. "My office has found ways to save money while continuing to provide necessary services to the constituents of the Fifth District. As requested when I returned over $160,000 last year, I ask that Speaker Boehner use this money to pay down the national debt.”
