Boehner Receives Tax Fighter Award

The National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC) has honored Congressional Representative John A. Boehner with its 111th Congress “Tax Fighter Award.” NTLC President Lewis K. Uhler presented the award to John A. Boehnerin Washington, saying “John A. Boehner’s votes on tax and spending issues in the 111th Congress earned an ‘A’ grade and the Tax Fighter Award.
“John A. Boehner 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.
“John A. Boehner 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. John A. Boehner has had the courage to challenge the orthodoxy of Washington spending and earmarks,” concluded Uhler.
Since 1975 the National Tax Limitation Committee, a 501(c)(4) grass roots taxpayer activist organization, has worked to limit taxes and spending and to reduce the size and scope of government at all levels.   NTLC has led the national movement for constitutional tax and spending limits at the stat and federal levels.  NTLC publishes a congressional scorecard at the conclusion of each Congress, as it has for more than a quarter-century.
