Apr 01 2016

WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) was honored for his dedication to protecting taxpayer money by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW). Boozman earned the “Taxpayer Super Hero” award for his perfect score on the organization’s 2015 Congressional Ratings.

“I am committed to reining in federal spending and being responsible with taxpayer dollars. This begins by eliminating wasteful and unnecessary spending that has become out-of-control,” Boozman said. “I am grateful for this award and I will continue my work  to get our country on the path of fiscal responsibility.”

“We applaud and wholeheartedly thank Sen. Boozman for his hard work on behalf of the taxpayers while serving in Congress,” CCAGW President Tom Schatz said. “His courageous votes to cut wasteful spending and make government more accountable should serve as an example to other members, encouraging them to make good on promises to protect the fiscal interests of American taxpayers.”

During the first session of the 114th Congress, the CCAGW scored members on 35 Senate votes including eliminating the federal estate tax, support for the Keystone XL pipeline and support for repealing the individual mandate in Obamacare.

CCAGW is the lobbying arm of Citizens Against Government Waste, the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
