Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

He earned his Juris Doctor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He engaged in the private practice of law before joining his family’s homebuilding and real estate business.

Mulvaney was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives, and after one term there, was elected to the South Carolina Senate. In 2010, Mulvaney was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served until February 2017.

President Donald trump nominated Mulvaney to be the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. He was confirmed by the Senate in a 51-49 party-line vote, with Senator John McCain breaking from the Republicans by voting against him.

IN THE NEWS

President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal includes a $54 billion increase in defense spending, marking a 9 percent jump, and calls for a 7 percent increase to Homeland Security. He plans to offset those costs by cutting the State Department’s budget by 28 percent, Agriculture and Labor by 21 percent, and major reductions to healthcare, human services, commerce, and more, according to an interview with Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.

“I could point you to speeches that the president gave during the campaign that said exactly those things,” Mulvaney said.

Mulvaney said entitlements were not addressed in this budget because “this is a budget blueprint,” and the budget is being done in phases, which is not unusual during a transition year. “The tradeoffs between the state and military, make no mistake about it, this was a hard power budget, not a soft power budget, and what the president wanted, and what I gave him.”
