Sali Named Taxpayer Hero by Council for Citizens Against Government Waste

August 29th, 2008 by Halli

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bill Sali today was named a Taxpayer Hero by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste. The group announced its decision based on its examination of votes in which Sali voted against wasteful government programs and spending. The group designates Taxpayer Heroes as those members who scored between 80 and 99 percent on 100 votes cast in 2007. Sali scored 93 percent.

“I am thrilled to have received this award, but it really belongs to the people of Idaho. Their values of frugality and fiscal commonsense are what I bring to my work every day in Washington,” said Sali.

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste is the lobbying arm of Citizens Against Government Waste, a group that works to eliminate waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.

This is the latest in a series of awards and recognitions for Sali. This Congress, Sali also received the Defender of Economic Freedom Award from the Club for Growth, Taxpayers’ Friend Award from the National Taxpayers Union, Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the True Blue Award from Focus on the Family, Hero of the Taxpayer from Americans for Tax Reform, Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award and the “Benjamin Franklin Award from the 60 Plus Association, Friend of the Shareholder” award from the American Shareholders Association, Guardian of Worker Freedom award from the Alliance for Worker Freedom and named among the “Best and Brightest” in Congress by the American Conservative Union.
