Taxpayer Watchdog Group Names Sen. Tom Coburn a "Taxpayer Hero"

from Reuters Oct. 9, 2009

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) today honored Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) as a Taxpayer Hero for scoring 95 percent on its 2008 Congressional Ratings...

"Sen. Coburn put the interests of taxpayers ahead of politics by consistently voting to cut wasteful spending, reduce the tax burden, and make government more accountable to taxpayers," said CCAGW President Tom Schatz. "The 2008 Congressional Ratings show that many elected officials continue to demonstrate little regard for the harmful effect a large and cumbersome federal government has on taxpayers` wallets. Out-of-control spending reigned over Capitol Hill, leading to a record $1.6 trillion deficit in fiscal year 2009, and an $11.8 trillion national debt. Sen. Coburn`s votes give taxpayers hope for the future."
