John Michael Mulvaney

Interview Highlights

–  “The relationship with Paul (Ryan) is entirely different than it was with Speaker Boehner. I don’t think Speaker Boehner ever understood the Tea Party movement, I don’t think he really understood what really happened in 2010, and I don’t think he understood that there was this whole wave of members in Congress who are very different than they had been in the past.”

– Boehner was a “very top-down type of manager manager” and a “twentieth century manager in a twenty-first century world.”

–  “If there was someone as difficult to deal with from a conservative’s perspective as Boehner, it’s Reid. My understanding is — as different as Mr. Schumer and I might be on the issues, it is possible to work with him.” 

– “There’s some data that suggests that if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, New York is in play. And if the Republican nominee can win New York, that entirely changes the electoral map.”

– “I think members of Congress win or lose their election based on what they are doing in their district, so I don’t think it (the Presidential candidates) is going to have a big effect.”
