Rep. Kevin McCarthy: President’s Record Would Send Him Back to the Minor Leagues


Representative Kevin McCarthy (R., CA), the Majority Whip in the House, noted today that the President’s record on the budget would doom him to the minor leagues in baseball: “The Budget Accounting Act of 1921 requires that the President submit a budget on the first Monday in February. He’s had five opportunities to do it, and he’s missed the deadline four out of five times. If any of you are baseball fans, that’s an average of .200. If you’re a big baseball fan, you know now that he’s at the Mendoza line. The Mendoza line is about Mario Mendoza; it’s the line that you talk for a major league baseball player if they become incompetent.”
