McMorris Rodgers Receives “Taxpayer Hero” Rating by Council for Citizens Against Government Waste
Washington, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, received “Taxpayer Hero” status from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) as part of their 2010 Congressional Ratings released yesterday.
“I am proud to be named a ‘Taxpayer Hero’ by this outstanding organization for taxpayer rights,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers. “The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste shares my commitment to cutting wasteful government spending, lowering the debt burden on our children and grandchildren, and supporting freedom – not bureaucracy – to grow our economy. I’ve enjoyed working with them – and I will continue to work with them – to create jobs and put our fiscal house in order.”
“On behalf of taxpayers, we thank and applaud Taxpayer Heroes like Rep. McMorris Rodgers for their votes to cut wasteful spending, reduce taxes, and make government more accountable to taxpayers,” said CCAGW President Tom Schatz.
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste 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.
