The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) recently honored U.S. Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) with the "Taxpayers' Friend Award" and recognized him as having one of the largest savings agendas in the U.S. House of Representatives. During the 111th Congress, Congressman Broun introduced legislation that collectively would save American taxpayers nearly $302 billion.
"Americans work hard for their money and should be able to keep more of what they earn," said Broun. "I appreciate the National Taxpayers Union's efforts in fighting for lower taxes, smaller government, and economic freedom at all levels. After decades of deficit spending, it is long past time to instill fiscal discipline in Washington, and reduce the burden on American taxpayers."
NTU Executive Vice President Pete Sepp said, "Whenever taxpayers in Georgia--and across the nation--have needed a stalwart advocate in Washington, they've always been able to count on Paul Broun. During each of his full three years in the House of Representatives, he has led Georgia's delegation as well as the entire House of Representatives in a more fiscally responsible direction. Current and future generations will be grateful for Paul's principled, effective work for limited government, which has consistently been among the best in Congress."
