Rather than using OMB as the central agency to reform this massive, out-of-control spending government, to stop wasteful spending and tame the debt—as former OMB Directors such as Mitch Daniels and Rob Portman did; now-Senator Portman submitted a balanced budget when he was OMB Director under President Bush—she has not submitted any reforms to bring our government under control in OMB."
