Alexander Receives Tax Fighter Award
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC) has honored U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, with its 111th Congress “Tax Fighter Award.”
NTLC President Lewis K. Uhler presented the award to Alexander in Washington, saying “Rodney Alexander’s votes on tax and spending issues in the 111th Congress earned an ‘A’ grade and the Tax Fighter Award.
“Rodney Alexander has led the battle on behalf of taxpayers to stop the passage of ObamaCare and cap-and-trade legislation, to make the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent, to eliminate the death tax, to kill the Alternative Minimum Tax, to provide incentives for private savings, investment and job creation, and to control the growth of federal spending.
“He has been a major asset to taxpayers across America during his congressional service, having earned the Tax Fighter Award consistently in every session of Congress. Rodney Alexander has had the courage to challenge the orthodoxy of Washington spending,” concluded Uhler.
Alexander was proud to receive this important recognition.
“I appreciate this honor and pledge to continue voting in the best interests of our hardworking taxpayers in the 5th District of Louisiana,” said Alexander.
“The American people should not be obligated to compensate for a deficit caused by mismanagement. And we certainly cannot raise taxes on small businesses and families at a time when they can least afford it. Times are tough enough without bringing massive tax hikes into the equation.
“We must create stability for our nation’s job creators, provide incentives for investment, and rein in out-of-control spending once and for all.”
