WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, Congressman Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) received the “Taxpayers’ Friend Award” from the National Taxpayers Union (NTU). This award is given to members of Congress for consistently voting for limited government.

The Rating is based on every roll call vote affecting federal taxes, spending, debt, and significant regulations. This included 274 House and 127 Senate votes taken through January 1, 2013.

Over that time, Congressman Huelskamp was one of only 55 members of Congress to receive an A rating from the NTU.

Huelskamp released this statement after receiving the award:

“I am honored to receive the ‘Taxpayers’ Friend Award.’ Kansans elected me to fight Washington big spenders, and rein in our debt. With the future of our country on the line, we have no choice but to cut spending and reduce our debt. I look forward to continuing the effort to bring common sense back to Washington.”

National Taxpayers Union is America’s independent, non-partisan advocate for overburdened taxpayers. NTU mobilizes elected officials and the general public on behalf of tax relief and reform, lower and less wasteful spending, individual liberty, and free enterprise. Founded in 1969, the NTU works at all levels for the day when every taxpaying citizen’s right to a limited government is among our nation’s highest democratic principles. www.ntu.org
