Today, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation's leading small business association, named U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, a Guardian of Small Business for his outstanding voting record on behalf of America's small-business owners in the 112th Congress.
NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Congressman Alexander for "standing for small business." In presenting the group's coveted Guardian of Small Business Award, Danner said, "Small-business owners pay close attention to how their lawmakers vote on the issues affecting their businesses and employees and stand by those who stand for them."
Alexander said he was pleased to receive this important recognition.
"I am proud to be named a Guardian and vow to do everything I can to keep the American Dream alive," said Alexander.
"These days, small businesses are hesitant to hire and scared to expand due to the uncertainty created by Washington's harmful policies. It frustrates me to imagine how many potential entrepreneurs and small business owners have been discouraged because our tax policies hamper the entrepreneurial spirit."
Danner continued, "The record shows that Congressman Alexander is a true champion of small business, having stood strong on the key small business votes in the 112th Congress. This award reflects our members' appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business."
