A government shutdown later this year would not derail markets, Republican Rep. Mick Mulvaney told CNBC on Monday.
"As long as we're transparent, I'm not worried about shocking anybody," Mulvaney said on "Squawk on the Street".
Congress needs to strike a deal to keep the government funded before a stopgap measure expires in December. Uncertainty surrounds the negotiations as House Republicans scramble to replace outgoing Speaker John Boehner.
Mulvaney is part of the Freedom Caucus, a group of roughly 40 conservatives that has taken a hardline stance on some budget issues and has grown increasingly influential. He said he would support Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as speaker, though the 2012 vice presidential candidate has said he's not interested in the position.
"I think the expectations are for Paul to do a little bit better than John did, but also to allow the conservatives along with moderates and centrists in my party to be more actively involved in what the part was," said Mulvaney, whose district is in South Carolina.
He also called Florida Rep. Daniel Webster a "dark horse" in the leadership election. A day before apparent frontrunner Kevin McCarthy abruptly pulled out of the speaker race last week, the Freedom Caucus Webster.
Mulvaney stressed U.S. debt would be paid regardless of who is speaker. He contended that political turmoil would not extend to the financial world because "the markets know" the U.S. will meet its obligations.
