Kelly, meanwhile, condemned Democrats for being pleased with their blocking of border wall funding.
Democrats say the parity is still there, because the extra money for the defense budget comes temporarily from emergency funds.
Another item Mulvaney cited as a big win was retention of longstanding prohibitions against federal funding of abortion called the Hyde amendment.
